This obviously doesn't work with IE5.5 and IE6.
It always wants to download some stuff and fails.

I know this has been mentioned in the very first post but it's either that I don't have a full installer (even not "full" enough for the most minimal installation) or it just doesn't work.

Ok, it "works" now.
But not really.
I got it installed and after the first restart there were dozens of error messages.

I also had to use the older version of browseui.dll (like it says in the first post)

At least, Windows still started and I could open Internet Explorer. It couldn't however load any web pages so I went back to IE 5.5

Anyway, doesn't matter much to me since IE6 isn't that useful anymore anyway.

Sorry for bump, but I've done everything in this tutorial and I cannot manage IE6 to work on Windows 95. When I try to start IE6, it displays starting logo and just flickers after one second and it doesn't start. Also, Outlook Express doesn't start because MSOE.DLL could not be loaded.

Admittedly, I am using RTM version like in tutorial. Maybe I've done something wrong, but I don't believe.

Also, I replaced loadwc.exe with 5.5 version and it's still same.
My wanted stuff (original media):

1. Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2000 SP4 (aka SP1a)
2. Microsoft BackOffice Server 4.0 (not SBS, ISO set on FTP have corrupted header)
