IE 10 Not Shown as Installable for Most Clients?

    Frage

  • Hi there,

    Currently we have IE 8 as the standard browser in our environment, but since we've rid ourselves of all our XP clients we're thinking that it's about time we upgraded to a more modern version of IE.

    In our WSUS server I changed the approval status of IE 9 and IE 10 from declined to unapproved. The funny thing is that the while the WSUS management console indicates that IE 9 is installable all our clients (over 100), IE 10 is installable for only a few. All our clients meet the installation requirements for IE 10.

    On closer inspection, the clients where IE 10 is installable are all very recent deployments--within the last few months. All our older installations from a half a year ago and back show that IE 10 is uninstallable. This suggests that there is something, maybe a Windows Update Program, installed on the newer clients that is enabling the install of IE 10 (or conversely, something installed on the older clients that is hindering the installation of IE 10).

    Does anybody have any ideas as to what the problem is?

    Also, it just occurred to me, it IS possible to upgrade from IE 8 to IE 10, thereby skipping IE 9, right? The only reason I ask is because since we standardize on IE 8, we've been downgrading the IE version of new deployments from (i.e. IE 9 to IE 8, IE 10 to IE 8). I don't know when IE 10 became standard for new Windows OS'es, but maybe all our clients where IE 10 is installable originally had IE 10 installed but it was downgraded??

    NOTE: All our clients are Windows 7 32 and 64 bit with SP1 installed. We are using WSUS version 3.2.7600.226 installed on Windows Server 2008 R2

  • It looks like a few of the updates you mentioned above I have declined in WSUS. That is probably the culprit. Thanks a lot for your help!
