Title: RE: win95 and IEAK6.0

  It may be instructive to look at the windows update website (, and note the fine print towards the left of the page. Check out the Win95 Legacy page it references.

P.S., you have to be running Win95 to find it. The browser lets the site know what platform you are running on, and "customizes" what you can see. For instance, I cannot find that page browsing from IE6/NT4.

The problem is that IE6 does not support Win95.  You need a minimum of
Win98 to install IE6...
