Trying to deploy IE10 via WSUS... doesn't seem to work RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to deploy IE 10 to my windows 7 machines using WSUS.  I have imported the update from the catalog and approved it for install in my workstations group.  

    I still have a hybrid environment of XP and Windows 7 - but of the 112 Windows 7 machines we've got, my goal is to get all of them to IE 10.  My WSUS says I'm at 96% installed / not applicable, but that number doesn't accurately represent what I am seeing.

    In addition, I sat at a couple of my Windows 7 w/ IE 8 or 9 on it, and tried to force check and install (wuauclt /detectnow) and it never seems to find the IE 10 install.  

    I am quite certain that I am doing something wrong as I am nowhere near a WSUS expert, so I need help

    Thanks in advance,

    sb

  • Hi,

    Please make sure that these systems have ALL of the required prerequisites as discussed in KB2818833.

    I have ever seen this kind of issue, hope the below link could be helpful:

    Can't install Internet Explorer 10 in Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

    This will help for sure as I've made a lot of tests and if you don't have all KB from the link you gave, IE10 will not apply on computers.

    For me it was only related to the following one :

    2670838 A platform update is available for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

    This update provides improved features and performance in Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. It includes updates to the following DirectX components: Direct2D, DirectWrite, Direct3D, Windows Imaging Component (WIC), and Windows Advanced Rasterization Platform (WARP). Additionally, it includes updates to the Windows Animation Manager (WAM), the XPS Document API, and the MPEG-2 Video Decoder. After you install this update, you may have to restart your computer.

    TiGrOu.

  • How do I make this update available in WSUS?  I just searched for it and it doesn't show up anywhere.  Do I need to enable updates for something other that Windows 7 or 2008?
