IE8 RC1 Released For Download

26 January 2009 5,131 Views 2 Comments

IE8 RC1 has just been released for download here. Is it available for Vista and XP (Sorry Windows 7).  If you installed Windows XP SP3 after IE8 and you plan on installing RC1 then your SP3 and IE8 installations are permanent and the only option would be to install the final IE8, there is no downgrade option for the OS or IE8. If you want to be able to downgrade SP3 or IE8 then read the link above for more details.

When installing, make sure the “Install the latest updates” box is checked! If it isn’t then IE8 RC1 may not run correctly after install. If so, then install KB957388 and try again.

A download of IE8 RC1 is not required as it will automatically be installed through Windows Update, but if you can’t wait, or have a pirated system, then you can download it. If you plan on installing IE8 on Windows Server 2008 or Vista, then make sure (KB937287 and KB957388 for Vista/Server) or (KB932823 and KB946501 for XP) are installed first!

For all of you Windows 7 testers, looks like we have to wait a while for our release. Stay tuned!
