Run Internet Explorer 5/6/7 Natively in OS X

edited November 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
NO need to run it under parallels, now you can run them natively trying it right now http://www.kronenberg.org/ies4osx/

  • Thanks for this! Trying it out now.
  • Oh gawd, this is surely the first Mac OS X virus!
    It's the beginning of the end, woe is us!
  • just tried and its god awful, it looks like Windows 98, even a simple site gogole.com resulted in tons of flickring, apaprently cause of javascript which is dead slow to execute
  • There is simply no point simulating IE on OS X.

    Any serious testing needs to be done in a Windows environment, by that I even exclude Paralells, boot up into full Windows.

    Surely there's no "pleasure" in running IE on any platform, let alone OS X?
  • well i'm not going to boot into windows just to check rendering of the page.
    I use parallels but it annoys me as well, cause i really don't know how to access my local server on mac from within parallels.
    So i needed this option to work :(
  • Mate, there's too much happening to rely on it for any sort of testing surely?

    I'd be sorting your your "local server" access issue in Paralells if I was you.

    Have you tried their support forums?

    I read somewhere recently that Parallels is no longer the Windows enabler of choice for OS X (even though Apple seems to be promoting and flying the Paralells flag), can't remember the name of the one that is out-shining it at the moment.
  • I use VMWare Fusion to run IE on my mac (it's necessary for Online banking and my corporate webmail to play nice) and i tend to find it works absolutely fine...does occasionally decide to spawn somewhere in the region of 50 windows but I think that's a VMWF bug not an IE one.

    oh the problem isn't parallels, its accessing the localserver from somewhere else. even from another home computer, I dunno how to do it. I try this http://192.168.254.3/vanilla/index.php but the moment I click any link the url changes to http://localhost:8888/vanilla/comments.php which obviously doesn't exist in parallels since local server is running under mac and not parallels. it needs to remain http://192.168.254.3/vanilla/comments.php i think its a mapping issue
  • When you set your web server / vanilla up you must have referred to it as localhost not the IP?
  • yup. so you think i should put in the ip of my mac, find all localhost in vanilla and replace it with my IP ok i'll try that
  • @MySchizoBuddy: to use your local server on the Mac from IE/parallels:
    - Launch network preferences.
    - Look at the the interface named "Parallels Host-guest"; its IP is the one you want to use. default is 10.37.129.2. If you are running Mamp, Apache default to port 8888 so the full address is 10.37.129.2:8888, Mysql is 10.37.129.2:8889

    You can change every setting in your files to use these addresses because you can reach it from Mac side as well
  • their is a way to map 10.37.129.2:8888 to myvanilla.com. do you know how. I think MAMP Pro can do that, I need a free mapping solution

    In your windows virtual machine, open C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts and add 10.37.129.2 myvanilla.com

    I don't where is hosts on OsX, but on linux it is in /etc/hosts.
  • /etc/hosts on OS X as well, but depending of version it might not be used without some more setting. Works out of the box in leopard.
    You still need to add the port if non standard: myvanilla.com:8888
