Deploying IE10 thru Active Directory RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to deploy Internet Explorer 10 with all critical updates to several clients Windows 7 SP1 which have IE8 installed. Already have met with IEAK10 to configure IE10. When finished in the builds folder and subfolders there are made 2 files: IE10-Setup-Full.exe and a .msi. I have configured IEAK10 so that the installation is not asking questions.

    Is it possible to deploy that msi made with IEAK with Active Directory? Configure a gpo with startup user or startup computer so that the msi is deployed to the clients?

    In this installation are there any critical updates installed automatically? I have synchronised in IEAK but if thats enough?

    What would be the easyest best way to deploy IE10 thru active directory with all critical updates and without user intervention, is that like above?

  • Hi,

    To deploy IE 10 to all clients, you can use SCCM to deploy IE on computers already running Windows or use MDT to deploy IE 10 as a part of Windows image, if you want to deploy it by GPO, of course you can use Group Policy Software Installation, it's recommended to use Group Policy to deploy IE for small to medium sized organizations.

    Using Software Distribution Tools to Install Internet Explorer 10

    Editing Software Settings (Group Policy Software Installation )

    And "Synchronize" option in IEAK 10 can synchronize your Internet Explorer 10 files to receive the latest updates on the web.

  • THe msi containes latest updates when choosing synchronise in IEAK, how can i see if the msi holds the latest updates?

    Deploy your IEAK10 output package to a machine, then, scan for Windows Updates, is probably the easiest way to check if the package is up to date.

    So as i understand it: configure it with IEAK10 and the msi file created deploy thru software installation gpo is for me the beste way to go?. THe msi containes latest updates when choosing synchronise in IEAK, how can i see if the msi holds the latest updates?

    Putting IE10 in a image is for me the easest way to install ie10 in my virtual master machine. No need to put ie10 in MDT2010 because i can put it right away in a image that is goiing to be sysprepped and deployed..
