Adding components to IE5

Hi,

How do you add components to an IE5 setup which weren't included in the original installation?

E.g. adding Outlook Express or the Java  virtual machine.

Running the installation program doesn't work. Nor does running Setup within the IE5 direftory, that just uninstalls.

I've tried uninstalling IE5 and like others know what a nightmare THAT causes. The registry usually finds some (often weird) excuse to stop you reinstalling IE5 at all. (Obviously some complicated registry surgery would be needed).

Well the Gods of M$ surely must have thoughts of a simple way to add (and remove) components to an installation of their Net flagship ;-) ...

How?

Daniel

In IE5, go to Tools / Windows Update and you'll be wisked off to the update page.

It will first scan your machine to see what you have and then it will present you with a list of updates to those programs or allow you to install additional components.

Just select the ones you want and then click the download button.

Or you can try the following link if the above doesn't work for you....

OK I installed IE5 from CD, which also has all the other components and I need to add the extra components like Outlook etc from CD, not mess with the M$ web site (which I have tried and don't want anything more to do with) and get tangled up in all their M$ snafus.

I need to know how to rerun setup and do that from the CD.

Try the following..

Go to Control Panel and Add/Remove Programs. Click on Microsoft Internet explore 5 and then the Add/Remove... button. It should launch the setup program and ask if you want to add components or uninstall. Obviously, select add and follow the screens from there.

You can also try inserting the disk again which should launch the setup program and follow the same steps to add additional components as you would have above.

Yes that's it David. Sounds so simple (it is actually) but M$ never spells that process out.

It doesn't work to put the disk back in, and trying to download extras from their site is a terrible experience, but just using the Control Panel works fine.

Thanks David
