Another way to install Microsoft Interne

By rsears ·
I’m looking for a way to install Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 without first downloading the small setup file and then executing it to perform a web install. This uses too much network bandwidth and can take a long time. I would like to download a large executable file once and install it multiple times from the same file, either by putting the file on a CD-ROM or through a network share. Does anyone know of a way that I can do this?

What you should do is use the IEAK (Internet Explorer Admin Kit) This allows you to download the admin kit once and IE once and create your own custom builds (if needed) of IE for distribution on CD, network share or Intranet.

IEAK Download:

To do EXACTLY that you would have to get a CD from microsoft. To get close, your best method would be to download the files to install later(this is an option in the download process) Then perform the install after hours...so no true solution thatcan be got to quickly

IEAK will allow you to cut a CD (if you have a CD writer) just like ISP's do. But the Network share is simple & immediate.

IEAK also allows you to specify security zones (if you wish), default Web page (if you wish) and even an autoupdate site (so you can have all browsers periodically check your LAN share or Intranet for a newer version). You can also customize the title bar, animated graphics, etc if you want to.

The download for install later option mentioned will work if all machineshave the same components or later ones than your initial machine does.
