IE9 beta 32bit & 64bit gotcha

If you have test driven the IE9 HTML 5 web browser and are thinking of installing the M$ IE 9 32bit beta browser or M$ IE 9 64bit beta browser locally then dont fall into the trap of thinking that just installing the 64bit one will leave your IE 8 32bit alone – it doesnt !

After downloading and installing the M$ IE 9 64bit beta I found that when I tried to run my old IE8 32bit browser that in fact the IE9 32bit beta was running instead !

Update : Instead of installing IE9 Beta you can now download the IE9 Platform Preview which will still let you use IE8 !
