Deployment Guide Now Available to Help Businesses Deploy IE7

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Mike Chan [MSFT], Mar 20, 2007.

  1. Hi, my name is Mike Chan, and I'm a product manager for Internet Explorer
    focused on businesses. This week, we released two documents to help
    businesses get IE7 deployed. The first document explains the business value
    of upgrading to Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP, and can help you
    convince management. The second document provides detailed guidance on how
    to get moving on that deployment.

    The IE7 Technology Overview for Businesses describes how improvements in IE7
    will help you deploy and manage IE7 in your enterprise environment. Whether
    you support a large, medium, or small business, we describe how Internet
    Explorer 7 can help secure your business while increasing productivity.

    For those who have to deal with a few hundred or more desktops, there are
    additional considerations before rolling the new browser. As you plan your
    deployment, check out the Internet Explorer 7 Deployment Guide. This guide
    discusses methods of deployment and maintenance, management as well as
    support of Internet Explorer 7 after deployment.

    We're always interested in what you have to say - drop us a note to
    to provide feedback on these new documents.

    Hi Mike,

    I am having problems deploying IE7 using SMS to our organization. On our
    test machines when trying to deploy IE7, the custom settings never get
    installed. After reading through this guide, on page 91, #3, you mention a
    setting under Stage 3 User Experience, select the Enable logon after restart
    with user-level access check box.

    I do not have this option under Stage 3 on my IEAK and I think this might be
    part of the reason our SMS install is not working. Any ideas?

  3. That may or may not be the issue with your deployment.

    Can you email .. iedeploy *at* and let's see what we can do to
    help your deployment along.

    Can you provide a more detailed description of your operating systems you're
    targeting, etc. Have you tried to run the executable that the IEAK created
    manually to see if it's an issue with the IEAK or the SMS deployment?
