IE8 to IE7


Is there the way to downgrade IE8 to IE7 on windows 7?
I have to use IE7 to do some works, and cannot change my OS, nor install a VM. I searched on the Internet, and there are some ways such as using developer tools for IE8, using win 7's XP mode, but they didn't work.

I need a way to install a REAL IE7 on my win7 64 bit

You should have an option to view pages in 'Compatibility View' mode which is basically ie7. There is also MultipleIEs which I use for dev work all the time to test out different versions of IE.

I did use 'Compatible Mode', but there are still some different displays with the REAL IE7

To my knowledge you can't. IE8 is an integral part of the Win7 OS.

IE8 to IE7


you can install XP separately and use a program like boot camp to boot up into each separate os, that would get around using a vm.
