Deploying IE7 Problem (IEAK7)
I need to deploy IE7 to just less then 300 computers, and Iíve decided to use the IEAK7 method of creating my own msi package to deploy the software using AD.
Well, the package has been made fine, and it installs on boot.
However, here's the problem.
We of course have many policies relating to internet explorer settings (proxy server, favourites and proxy exceptions etc). I have a hunch that all these settings are being applied on logon (on the computer which has just had IE installed)...but then they all get stripped off at the end of the logon procedure...thus not allowing an internet connection.
Why do I think this?
Well, on my first try at making the Msi, I told IEAK7 to use the connection settings (LAN settings) of the computer I was making the Msi from. This host computer had a proxy server set...but nothing else. When the Msi was made...and deployed...the computers which had received the Msi had a proxy server set...but nothing else (coincidence?)
So, I made another msi...and decided not to use the same connection settings of the host computer...which left me in the situation Iím left in now.
I realise itís a strange story...and I hope people can be bothered to read it (and hopefully understand what Iím trying to say)
