Steps to reproduce

Hi MS Team,

on your IE9/Win7 HyperV VM from https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/tools/vms/ their is no IE9 installed… only the IE8.
It would be nice if somebody could look at it

Greetings Daniel

  • Hi Daniel,

    Thank you for reporting this.  I have verified that IE 9 is not pre-installed.

    A work around for now is to manually download it.  I am sure you are aware of this and reported this to avoid having to perform this manual step.  I am posting this so that anyone else viewing this ticket is aware of the workaround.


    Thanks again,

  • This looks similar to this issue on GitHub.

    I’m closing this item, progress will be reflected in the previous GitHub issue.

  • The workaround doesn’t seem to work; visiting that URL in IE8 on the VM causes IE to freeze.

  • Confirmed: Using IE8 to visit the indicated site, [ https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/internet-explorer-9-details.aspx ], still causes IE8 to freeze.
