Need to install IE9 on Windows 8

I use a web-based piece of software built by Fidelity that is not compatible with IE10, neither in START mode or desktop mode. 

Unfortunately I have learned this the hard way, after upgrading my machine to Windows 8.

The software is also not compatible with Chrome or Mozilla. (I know, completely lame).

How can I get IE9 or IE8 to run on my Windows 8 machine?  I only want to use it for this one site.

This is a pretty desperate situation!

The only option you have is either Compatibility View or Developer Tools


For Compatibility View press the page tear at the top in the address bar it should turn blue.


If that doesn't work then press F12 on that page that will bring up Developer Tools at the bottom. Now go to Browser mode and play around with the IE versions.
