I have about 30 computers ( running win7 ) that need ie8 upgraded to ie9. I don't have access to group policies to push it out that way. So would there be a nice little script that i can put in the start up folders that would upgrade ie? also, the upgrade isn't pushed out through windows updates because corporate restricts updates until they are approved, and apparently they are letting people upgrade to ie9 if they want, but not automatically.

Let WSUS distribute the update

They can setup a group and authorize the update just for that group in WSUS

unfortunately I don't have access to WSUS, group policies or anything like that. I would have to upgrade from the desktop.

Unless you really are restricted to IE9, upgrade to IE11.  Among other things various security issues are fixed.  

But if you are stuck with IE9 here is the download

You can just host the file some where on the network and put a shortcut to the file in the startup folder or use a batch script.

Batch file example that deletes shortcut ot itself after running.

\\uncpath\IE9-Windows7-x64-enu.exe /quiet /norestart /update-no
del /s /q /f %CSIDL_COMMON_ALTSTARTUP %\InstallIE9.lnk

that's an idea Joshua - I haven't made an answer file before, but would it work to have one of those answer files for the install of ie9? if so, is there some walk throughs out there on how to make an answer file.

I dont think you need an answer file. Are you wanting to customize the install in some way?

Just copy the above into notepad and save it as a .bat

Be sure to correct the unc path to the installer, save the .bat file where the installer is and then create a shortcut to the bat file and place it in the startup folder

Also make sure that InstallIE9.lnk is the actual shortcut you made to the batch file.

sorry, I misunderstood you Joshua, so that batch you created will install IE9?

Use the below, I had the variable wrong for the startup folder

as long as you edit the file with the correct info based on what you are doing then yes

For Example:
\\server01\Share01\IE9-Windows7-x64-enu.exe /quiet /norestart /update-no
del /s /q /f %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp\InstallIE9.lnk 

Open in new window


Now the bat file should also be under "\\server01\Share01\"

Then you create a shortcut on your desktop to the bat file and put that in the startup folders.

Make sure that the Shortcut name is the same as in the batch file. In the above example is InstallIE9.lnk
