Run IE7 without installing it

As mentioned in my previous post, I had some problems installing on my XP machine. I searched around for the error message and couldn’t find any solutions. But I did find a post describing how to run IE7 without actually installing it. Here’s the steps:

  1. Extract the install package and delete the UPDATE folder and SHLWAPI.DLL

  2. Create an empty file called IEXPLORE.EXE.LOCAL

  3. Run iexplorer.exe

Hi, I'm John Dyer. In my day job, I build websites and create online seminary software for a seminary in Dallas. I also like to release open source tools including a pretty popular HTML5 video player and build tools that help people find best bible commentaries and do bible study. And just for fun, I also wrote a book on the theology of technology and media.
