The IE8 IEAK (Internet Explorer Administrator Kit) allows you to create, deploy and manage customized Windows Internet Explorer 8 packages.
A question that I’ve been asked often in the last weeks is: “How can I build a custom IE8 package for Windows 7?”.
Answer: you can follow the IEAK standard procedure, having in mind the following two settings:
- In the Platform Selection step, select “Windows Vista or Vista SP1 or Server 2008” (either 32bit or 64bit)
- In the Media Selection step, select “Configuration-only package”
The IEAK will produce a smaller package with all the settings and options that you selected in the wizard. For more information, please refer to the TechNet documentation.
