Summary

When you install Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7, the installer program tries to automatically install some prerequisite components. If this part of the installation fails, Internet Explorer stops the installation process.

In this situation, you must install the prerequisite software manually before you can install Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7.

To do this, use the links in the "List of prerequisite updates for Internet Explorer 11" section to obtain the individual update components.

Make sure that the installation of other updates is complete

Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 cannot automatically install prerequisites if any update installation is in progress or if a system restart is pending.

To check whether you have an ongoing update installation or a pending restart in Windows 7, open Control Panel, click System and Security, and then click Windows Update. Then, take the following action, as appropriate:
  • If an update installation is in progress, let that installation finish before you try to install Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7.
  • If all updates are installed but a system restart is pending, restart your computer before you try to install Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7.
