I want my, I want my, I want my I.E. 4

By Aaron_Wurthmann ·
Well.. what can I say, we finally got some engineering manager that insist that at least one of his machines be Windows NT 4.0. (For those of you that don't know, my whole site is Windows 2000 or 9 Being that I am who I am and that is all that I am, I want to make the NT box as much like Windows 2000 as I can. One of the many things that I would like to do is enable the address bar in Explorer. But wait that was an add on that came with I.E. 4.0, it was called Desktop Plus I think. These machines come with I.E. 5. Can any one tell me from personal experience how to put Desktop Plus from I.E. on a Windows NT 4.0, SP6a, I.E. 5.01 machine? ALSO: are there any other tools/apps/patches that you can think of to enhance this NT machine to look and feel more like Windows 2000.

UnInstall IE5, install IE4.0 with Active Desktop. Upgrade to IE5 again if you want.

If you get the IEAK for IE 5, you can make a custom build of IE 5 that includes active desktop. You would than have to reinstall using the custom build.

Yes, Aaron, you CAN uninstall IE 5 - I've done it. It does leave stuff behind, but you can do it, esp on NT 4 which really doesn't know from browsers. I'm not, however, sure what would happen if you then try to install IE4, but heck, if Active Desktop really means that much to you (yeah - it is cool), take a chance...Good luck!

I didn't say that you can't uninstall IE, I said that when you do wierd stuff happens. Even more weird stuff happens if you downgrade. I've tried it before on a WindowsNT 4, SP 4 machine right when we did the Office 2000 upgrade last year, it was messy. Yes.. Windows Desktop Update means that much to me, forget Active Desktop.
