IE 10 Enable Display Mixed Contents

    Question

  • I am deploying a Windows 7 computer with IE 10 using MDT. I have written a batch file to enable Display Mixed Contents but it is not working for some reason.

    REG ADD "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\1" /V 1609 /d 0 /t REG_DWORD /f

    REG ADD "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\2" /V 1609 /d 0 /t REG_DWORD /f

    REG ADD "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\3" /V 1609 /d 0 /t REG_DWORD /f

    reg load HKU\DefaultUser "C:\Users\Default\ntuser.dat"

    reg add "HKU\DefaultUser\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\1" /v 1609 /d 0 /t REG_DWORD /f

    reg add "HKU\DefaultUser\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\2" /v 1609 /d 0 /t REG_DWORD /f

    reg add "HKU\DefaultUser\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\3" /v 1609 /d 0 /t REG_DWORD /f

    reg unload HKU\DefaultUser

    I was hoping that by loading default user's registry & adding 1609 values, all domain users who will be logging on to the computer will have enabled Display Mixed Content setting. I have read throughhttp://support.microsoft.com/kb/182569/en-nz but can't seem to fix my problem. Please help.

    Manually changing the values under HKEY_CURRENT_USER enables the setting but then its per user basis. How can I set it to take effect for every user? I even tried LockedDown_Zone settings & added 1609 values but to no avail.

    Not much of group policy usage in our environment. I understand this can be done via GPO but I am asked to stay away from GPO.

  • Why not just make a package using the IEAK? You can import all the settings you want into the package you're building. If systems already have IE 10 then just make a configuration-only package. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=36807

  • I made the package & got the MSI but its not getting silently installed. If I run msiexec /i IEpackage.msi /qn /norestart it should run silently but nothing happens. If I run msiexec /i IEpackage.msi then it runs but prompts with a message. Something along the lines of "this package contains customizations, do you wish to install/proceed..." 

    How can I really suppress the installation?

    Some installers are very small and it looks like they did not run.

    The /qn hides the installer. If you would like to see the installer use /qb. For testing you can do /qb+ to get a conformation in the end of the installation.

  • When you first build the package using IEAK, tell it not to make IE the default. Why? Because your only other choice is to prompt the user and that doesn't help when you want to automate things. Besides it doesn't matter because IE is already the default when you deploy Windows.

    For me, because I already made IE10 a part of my reference image I just run the branding msi. This is my install command: msiexec /i IE10-Setup-Branding.msi

  • Good idea Dan, will try that. BTW this is only available if I make complete package. The option to not make IE default doesn't show when making config only file. I will give it a whirl.
