Default Installing Paint Shop Pro X.. stuck!

I purchased an upgrade to PSP X a while ago - but couldn't install due to lack of space on my applications drive. Now I've reorganized things and created space, and just tried to install ... only to have the installer stop immediately, telling me: "Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher is required to install...". I only have 5.01 here. Aaarghh!

The problem is: I cannot install IE 5.5 (or higher for that matter): for unknown reasons the installation always stops (I've tried that every which way). Besides, I actually like having IE 5.01 on one computer at least so I can test with it.

Can anyone tell me what's up with this PSP installation? Is it that IE 5.5 or higher is needed for the installation process or is it also (always) required for using the program? In the latter case, I'm stuck until I actually have bought a new computer (that'll take a while). In the former I could try to install on my laptop (Alan, which has IE6), making a snapshot of the Registry before and after the installation, and then try to migrate the whole lot to this computer (Grace).

Actually using PSP X on Alan is out of the question: while it has a nice high-resolution screen, it has pretty poor color rendition and low dynamic range - no good at all for working on scans and photographs.
