This article describes how to include a Microsoft Internet Explorer fix to
an Internet Explorer distribution created with the Internet Explorer
Administration Kit (IEAK).
Follow these steps to create the IEAK generated Internet Explorer
distribution with one or more fixes included:
- If you have not already done so, get the latest version of IEAK on the Microsoft WWW server http://ieak.microsoft.com
. Run it and select the Synchronize button. It will automatically download the latest Internet Explorer files for you to use.
- When you determine that you have a valid fix EXE to use, incorporate the QFE<number>.exe into the IEAK. Using the IEAK Wizard, enter the options you want to add in the Specify Custom Active Setup Components. When you add the component using the wizard, you must specify /Q:A /R:N /N:V for the parameters. If you do not specify these parameters, the EXE will not install properly.
The Specify Custom Active Setup Components option is where you add the QFE<number>.exe to the IEAK. Select the Add button and browse to choose the EXE. Make sure you select the Generate button to create a GUID (if you do not create a GUID, this will not work). Likewise, make sure that you name the component (any name you choose will do) in the Component edit box on this page.
- Continue using the IEAK Wizard, selecting your option, until you reach the Select Installation Options page. Make sure you add your custom component (the name you gave in step 3) from the Components Available list box to the "Components to Install" list box.
- Continue using the IEAK Wizard, and generate the Internet Explorer install build. Your Internet Explorer install build will now add the Internet Explorer fix automatically when you install Internet Explorer.
