IE10 Prereqs RRS feed

  • Question

  • With IE10 app I have ensured that necessary prereqs are patched in the WIM image via offline servicing - all fine

    I had an issue the other day - that actually turned out to be a non issue! - where I decided to go back to the base WIM file and rerun offline servicing. I subsequently found IE10 fell over because some of the prereqs were not present

    I'm sure that with some digging you would find that as of today the missing updates have been superseded and therefore you could check and make sure they are downloaded and added into the wim image

    My question therefore is there an easy way to find out the latest updates required for IE10 without having to start with the "old" listed updates and manually find out (I'm looking in the WSUS console) which update(s) have superseded it

    I guess of course I could force the "older" updates to install in a package which is a pre-requisite to IE10 but trying to avoid this since if they are all in the WIM file then there's no need

  • I don't know of great way, but I know of a way that is fairly straight-forward. For security updates, you can use a spreadsheet published and updated by Microsoft that lists all updates including supersedence info that you can search through in short order: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=36982

    For all updates, there is a yearly KB that they also maintain and update that lists the same info that you can similarly search through. These are listed in my blog post at http://blog.configmgrftw.com/windows-update-what-is-it-good-for/ (the first gold box).

    While not perfect, it's still pretty quick to find a KB and figure out if it's been superseded or not by searching through these and seeing if its listed as superseded by another update.
