I just wonder what teh IC in version numbers like 8.0.7600.16385IC for Internet Explorer means as I have two systems (one Windows 7, one Windows 2008 R2) with identical version numbers *except* for the IC, i.e. Windows 2008R2 shows 8.0.7600.16385 (whereas up-to-date versions e.g. for XP are totally different - as expected for a different bracnch).
So what does IC mean? (It reminds me of "I. C. Wiener", Fry's Pizza prank customer in Futurama)

The version number has the following format:

major version.minor version.build number.sub-build number XX

XX is normally blank, but can contain a two letter string, if the installation of Internet Explorer 5.x was customized using the IEAK (Microsoft Internet Explorer Administration Kit) :

IC = Internet Content Provider
IS = Internet Service Provider
CO = Corporate Administrator

Oh, I see. But whatI understand (after googling IEAK) is thatthere is no *essential* difference between xxxx and xxxxIC, right?
(Just trying to confirm because I observed a layout problem with an IC version today that did not occur with the base version of identical major.moinor.build.subbuild)

That's an IEAK customized version, possibly for the user's Home Page
and other features...

don't really think there's a diffrence..
