    Does anyone know whether the free virtual machine images Microsoft offers developers to test older versions of Internet Explorer will run in Parallels or Fusion?

    I don't know for sure, but probably not, since MS made their own virtualization software.

    i'm a developer too and i'm using Crossover 8 by CodeWeavers to emulate internet explorer. One of their supported programs is IE7 so you can install it straight from that (need internet to download and install).
    Seems to run alright, but main microsoft graphics are very poor (wouldnt recomment printscreening through it)

    Does it run and render the same as on Windows?

    What do you mean by this?

    Thanks!
