Microsoft Windows 2000

Note that the Install Minimal, or customize your browser option is not available when you install on a Windows 2000-based computer. As a result, the Component Options dialog box is not available, and therefore you cannot select individual Internet Explorer components. Setup installs the following components:
  • Internet Explorer 6 Web browser
  • Microsoft Outlook Express 6
  • Windows Media Player (version 6.04.07.1119)
  • Visual Basic Scripting Support (version 5.6.0.6626)
  • Internet Explorer Exception Pack

Microsoft Windows XP

Windows XP already includes Internet Explorer 6, but installation of Internet Explorer 6 is supported on Windows XP to allow customizations (branding). As a result, the Internet Explorer Exception Pack is also installed on Windows XP, because this component is not included with Windows XP.

Versions of Internet Explorer customized with the IEAK by your Internet service provider, Internet content provider, or your corporate administrator can be installed on Windows XP so that customizations (branding) are applied. The Install Minimal, or customize your browser option is not available when you install Internet Explorer 6 on a Windows XP-based computer. As a result, the Component Options dialog box is not available, and therefore you cannot select individual Internet Explorer components.
