How to push a new IEAK Package on a computer without Internet Connection


In this blog we will share a common scenario seeing more often in Controlled IT Environments where there is a need to push a new version of Internet Explorer on machines without internet Connection.

NOTE: In this blog, we will be using Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 10 English Language as an example, however you should be able to use the same switch for other versions of Internet Explorer!

   This should also apply to IE9 and IE11 deployment !

Method I:

Using the Downloaded Setup. EXE

  • Once you download the setup, from an elevated command window and run the IE10-Windows6.1-x64-en-us.exe setup with the  /update-no switch. Example: IE10-Windows6.1-x64-en-us.exe /update-no

TIP: You can use the /? or ? to view all available setup switches!

 

  • Below, is a screenshot of the process installing on a machine with no network connectivity.

 

Method II:

Using IEAK Package. The only item you must know is which .exe you need to use.

Extract the IE10-Setup-Full.exe from your  C:\builds\FOLDER_NAME\FLAT\AMD64_WIN7\EN-US  and use the IE-Redist.exe with the /update-no switch.

Example: IE-Redist.exe /update-no

Note: The /update-no cannot be use with MSI packages. This is an IE setup command only and will not work with msiexe.exe. 

Here are the IE10 Prerequisites:

  • 2670838
  • 2786081 – Note if this update is uninstalled, Internet Explorer 10 will also automatically be uninstalled (per article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2818833  notes)

    Thank you for the information.  I am deploying using your method II; with an IEAK build of IE11.  Running  'IE-Redist.exe /update-no' does stop the update check but the IEAK customizations are NOT applied.  Please advise if there is a resolution to this issue.  I've found blogs that say to add '/ieak-full:%~dp0' to the command line for the customizations to apply but that has not worked in my testing either.  I've played around with the path using both drive letter and unc paths to the ieak files but all no good.
