Internet Explorer MSI
Posted on 2004-10-27
I'm using Wise 4.62.
I need to deploy IE6 SP1 silently on a large number of machines and need the opinions of an experienced packager to help put me on the right trail.
I've tried packaging IE6 just using snapshots, but it runs into problems when trying to update Windows protected files. I've now resorted to including the original ie6setup.exe and all its cab files in my MSI and simply running them, but I'm not sure if this is ideal. Is there any way to make the MSI ignore all that protected files bullsh*t, or to make it run with admin privileges?
And what is the best way to deploy IE6 security updates?
(I'm giving many, many points for this question, so please give me a comprehensive answer. No opportunists, please)
