IE 10 with WSUS

Hi Experts,

I haven't approved IE 10 for a few month because some applications are not compliant.
Now I need to push out to windows 7 users so I approved last week but user computers still don't get it.

I looked at the details of Internet Explorer 10 for windows 7 and said 'Install' for approval column and 'Not Applicable' for Status.
Also it says ' The update is needed by 0 computers'
What seems to be a problem?

Thanks in advance.

I already installed some computers manually but I still have 100 more computers to be installed so I moved 7 computers out of 100, which have still IE 9 to the group where I approved IE 10 but nothing happened for a week. any idea?

What time are the workstations set to in group policy to check for updates?  Typically if this is not necessarily set the defaults are 3:00am.  Unless they manually check.  If you don't have a WSUS gpo setup for system to check, download and install etc i would create one.

Hi All, I had the same problem before and the fix was piece of cake all You need to do is to import and deploy the Win 7 Platform Update KB2670838 via WSUS. IE10 will then install fine, in some cases you wil need to import and approve KB2834140 after that you will get IE10 to approve it on the clients computers ;)
