    Question WSUS vs. IE11

    Hi folks,

    I've spotted more through luck than anything that some machines here are still on IE9.

    I've checked WSUS and I can't find anything that looks like the IE11 install, which apparently should be an Update Rollup. I've also searched on its KB number (2841134), still nothing. Update Rollups are set to download.

    Any ideas why it's not listed? (Anyone have the release date and/or the title of the update, so I can check through the list?)

    TIA

    You will want to get ahold of this...
    Internet Explorer Administration Kit

    You set your options and it creates you a nice, customised MSI for your network.

    I had to import it to the catalogue through the WSUS console, rather than it show automatically (for both Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2). It then lists and works like any other update.

    When did you last check?

    I just did a search on WSUS for KB2841134 and it found it.

    Vasriel: I checked today. WSUS has updates from a few days ago, so it's definitely receiving updates. It's been live for over a year, so would have received the update.

    My preference is to just get it into WSUS via the usual route, so I'm at a loss as to why it isn't there.

    What's the release date you're seeing in WSUS?

    I saw it pop into WSUS last week after the May set of patches. I've declined it for the time being as I'm still busy rolling out 10 across the school. 11 is better, but I need to just make sure it works correctly with OWA 2007, or the staff will freak if their mail gets broken. Funny enough, IE11 renders OWA 2007 better than 7,8,9 and 10!

    It gets weirder.

    When I checked synchronisations there hadn't been anything since the 5th May. I checked options and sync was set to manual. Bizarre as I haven't changed anything. So I ran a manual sync, and then changed it back to daily.

    I then looked through the updates, and could not find IE11 (searching by name, and by KB2841134). I then changed the filter to "unapproved", and there it is, titled "Internet Explorer for Windows 7". Release date of 13/5/2014.

    I have automatic approval set for Critical Updates, Definition Updates, Security Updates, Service Packs, Update Rollups, and Updates. This is for Office 2003, Office 2007, Office 2010, Silverlight, and any Windows Product. So I have no idea why it didn't approve.

    Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 is also there, with a release date of 08/10/2013.

    Presumably these are treated in some special way, or I'm missing an approval criteria?

    Ah interesting, when I approved the IE11 updates I was prompted with a license terms agreement. This may well be why automatic approvals didn't work. A shame that WSUS doesn't flag this in some way!

    I seem to recall that with IE10, I had to approve the MS Terms and Conditions, which I presume requires a human to click "Yes". In fact I just checked IE11 in my Declined view, and it states that I haven't accepted the Terms. My best guess is that since these updates have Terms, they need to be manually approved first.
