    Does anybody know how to get IE 9 to work in windows xp? I opened the install file with resource hacker and couldn't find the compatibility portion. If anybody knows what to do, please post. Any help is appreciated and credit will be given to whomever has a solution.

    Never was able to make it happen. However this might be a suggestion.

    You can install any Firefox/Mozilla derivative (so Pale Moon for XP, Firefox, Waterfox, you name it...) and install the FoxE9 add-on. It will give you the look of IE9 (but with a title bar).

    Also, Maxthon v2 had an IE9 like theme, but I am unsure if v3 has one. Worth a try.
    :)

    The reason is because it uses some graphics which are unsupported in XP altogether, I believe.
