IE 10 upgrade failure RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    Currently we have Windows 7 desktops with IE8. Our Corp requested to upgrade all 10000 systems to upgrade with IE10. I have already installed the pre-requisite patches on all systems using SCCM. But the installation of IE fails on 50% machines with exit code 40007. Even manual installation gives "IE 10 upgrade not completed" message. Pls support me to get it resolved. Thanks

  • See if there are any logfiles for the installation available.

  • Hi,

    You can troubleshoot errors by using the Setup log files after manual installation failed:

    • IE10_main.log
    • IE10_NR_Setup.log
    • IE10_uninst.log
    • cbs*.log
    • WU_ IE10_LangPacks.log
