  • Here is one more similar post for distributing based on Software updates

    In a corporate environment, I find it better to use the IEAK to create a custom package to in turn roll this out to the clients using Software Distribution instead of Software Updates.

    There is some advantage to using Software Updates though so if this is what you want to do, it's still feasible. IE8 is a full product release however, not a KB. You will first have to select the "Windows Internet Explorer 8 Dynamic Installer" as a product group in the SUP Component Properties. It will then appear in your repository after you do a synch and you can use a search folder to easily find it.

  • I think, his environment is in SMS 2003 so there is no option of software updates.

  • You can download the update and install it like any other Software Distribution package. Use http://www.appdeploy.com/packages/detail.asp?id=1503 for tips on silent installation switches.
