Microsoft posted the Client SDK for Internet Explorer 4.0 PR2 today on the IE 4 Web site.

  • Windows NT 4.0 (Intel only) or Windows 95.
  • Visual C++ 5.0.
  • Up to 120 MB of drive space for Windows NT NTFS drives.
The Internet Explorer 4.0 Client SDK is comprised of the following:
  • Tools for Internet Content Providers (ICP).
  • Documentation for ICP tools.
  • JScript and VBScript documentation.
  • Java component tools and documentation.
  • ActiveX component tools and documentation.
  • Other Web tools and documentation.
  • IE 4 Component library and documentation.
  • Win32 SDK libraries and header files.
The Client SDK is being developed alongside IE 4, so the final release is expected in the late summer as well
