Silent Installer for Internet Explorer 8

Download IEAK8 here [1] and install the Toolkit.

Create your custom IE8 installer bundle with the "Internet Explorer Customization Wizard 8". Note: user based settings like search providers will not work if you run WPKG under a service account.

Create the package KB932823 if you are using Windows XP and haven't got Service Pack 3 installed.

	name="Internet Explorer 8"

	<depends package-id="KB932823" />

	<check type="logical" condition="or">
		<check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="Windows Internet Explorer 8" />
		<check type="registry" condition="equals" path="HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\CurrentVersion" value="6.1" />

	<install cmd='%SOFTWARE%\windows\IE8-Setup-Full-xp.exe' >
		<exit code='any' />


Note: the registry check returns true on Windows7 and the package is not installed. IE8 is included in Windows7.
