    I need help! I purchased something online, which cost $90 and later on realized that it only runs on IE 5.0 onwards. :( I tried the Safari>Develop>User Agent route, but it still didn't work, so now I'm considering installing windows 8 through bootcamp. Which Windows 8 should I buy online? I checked ebay and when I typed "windows 8" in the search window, it gives me lot of options. Can I just buy the windows vista (cheaper than windows 7 or 8), since the only app that I will use is the Internet Explorer? Will the Vista still run on my MBP 2012 bootcamp?

    Problem solved! I installed Parallels Desktop 9 and the Windows 8.1 preview that came with it.
