Upgrade IE 8 to IE 10 with all updates and only 1 reboot? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We need to update multiple computers from IE 8 to IE 10 with as little disruption as possible.

    We could simply approve IE 10 as an update via WSUS or we could do a startup script or login script that automatically installs IE 10.  We could even just point users to a link to install IE 10 manually.

    The problem with this is that none of these methods install all the IE 10 updates at the same time of IE 10 installation.  The users would have to also manually install Windows Updates for IE 10 or wait for automatic updates to install them the next time the machine checks for updates which would require another reboot that they may not be excpecting.

    How can we streamline this?  Is there a way to either create an installation file package that slipstreams all the updates as part of the installation or else immediately installs all the updates after the new browser installs?

    We mainly do not want the users to have a chance to start opening up other software and documents before the updates are complete and then have to  close all these apps and documents again to complete the reboot the IE 10 updates require.
