If you need to test Internet Explorer 6 on your Mac, but don’t want to resort to multibooting, you can download the free VirtualBox software, and grab one of Microsofts free VirtualPC testing images and get up and running.
- Download a VPC image of your choice.
- Rename the .exe file to .rar, then unpack using a RAR unpacker on the Mac
- Create a new Virtual Machine in Virtualbox. When you get the chance to select an existing disk, do that and point to the VPC image.
- Boot. The VPC image may require activation and/or a password (which resides inside the .txt file that came with the VPC image)
Yep. There’s the activation hassle. It’s Microsoft. What did you expect? It’s still easier than manually installing Windows XP.
