Internet Explorer 5.5SP2

#1. In the Internet Explorer 6 thread that was just closed by "smurfy", the moderator, he had stated in an earlier post that I could download IE5.5SP2 from the following URL:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=0A50996B-DEB9-4A46-81DA-ABEF1EBBD08A&displaylang=en
However, when I tried to do that, I found out that the download was ONLY an ie5setup.exe file of 499KB!!

#2. After doing a search for "Internet Explorer 5.5SP2" at the MS website, I found the following URL, but it was ONLY for a 2449 KB update!!:

#3. After doing a search for "Internet Explorer 5.5 SP2" at the MS website, I found the following URL which listed 20 other URL's for various other updates &/or "patches", but NONE for the full browser!!:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/r...plorer+5.5+SP2

#4. After doing a search for "5.5 SP2" at the MS website, I found the following URL which listed 28 other URL's for various other updates &/or "patches", but NONE for the full browser!!:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/r...eeText=5.5+SP2

#5. I'd previously said in the Internet Explorer 6 thread that I'd downloaded IE5.5SP2 from EVOLT to a CD at a local library, but that it wouldn't open properly on my Toshiba Satellite Pro 430CDS Laptop. I went back to the library again to download IE5.5SP2 from EVOLT to a CD, but this time I opened the file on the library computer BEFORE I "burned" it on to a CD, & then after I got back home, I was able to install it on my laptop by opening the main file, & then by opening the Ie5setup file.

#6. Despite the fact that there was a message during the installation of IE5.5SP2 that said that DCOM95 was being installed, when I tried to install AVG from GRISOFT, an error message said that DCOM95 was missing!! I reopened the main IE5.5SP2 file again, & then opened the DCOM95 file, but the error message said that DCOM95 was still missing!! I then downloaded DCOM95 from the following URL to a "floppie", & then opened the file on my "floppie" to a folder on my HD [hard disk], but the error message again said that DCOM95 was still missing!! Finally, after I went to the folder on the HD, & opened the DCOM95 file there, I was finally able to install AVG!!

RE: Internet Explorer 5.5SP2

F.Y.I., here's another URL for IE5.5SP2, & it appears to be a little faster than EVOLT:

RE: Internet Explorer 5.5SP2

I reopened my IE5.5SP2 folder again to look at all of the files again, & there were some .exe files that I had questions about, & I couldn't find the answers in the "HELP" section:

#1. There was a 74.6KB file named IE5COMP.EXE, & when I opened it, it said "This will install the Internet Explorer Compatibility Option", & it asked for "Yes" or "No", but after choosing "Yes", nothing else happened. Do you know why, & do you know what it's supposed to do?? Was it automatically installed with the rest of the browser??

#2. There was a 2.67MB file named IEAK5.EXE, & when I opened it, it said "Do you want to install the Microsoft Internet Explorer Adminintration Kit 5.5?", & it asked for "Yes" or "No", & after choosing "Yes", it installed, & a message said "Microsoft Internet Explorer Administration Kit 5.5 has been installed successfully". Do you know what it's supposed to do??

#3. There was a 2.69MB file named IEAK5CD.EXE, & when I opened it, it said "Do you want to install the Microsoft Internet Explorer Adminintration Kit 5.5?", & it asked for "Yes" or "No" just like the IEAK5.EXE file, but after a MUCH LONGER time than for the IEAK5.EXE file, TWO error messages said "Error Copying File Cannot copy cd: Cannot find the specified file. Make sure you specify the correct path & filename." AND "Error Copying File Cannot copy en: Cannot find the specified file. Make sure you specify the correct path & filename." Since the IE5.5SP2 CD was in the CDROM drive, do you know why this happened?? Do you know the differance between the IEAK5.EXE file & the IEAK5CD.EXE file??

#4. There was a 466KB file named OAINST.EXE, & when I opened it, a window briefly appeared which showed that some files or data were moving, but there were no messages. Do you know what that meant??
