You may experience a problem when you install Internet Explorer by using the Internet Explorer Administration Kit (IEAK) with the User Rights Deployment component. The installation may not work if both of the following conditions exist:
  • A non-administrator user logs on to the computer to complete the Internet Explorer installation.
  • The initial installation was started by an administrator.
When the non-administrator logs on, the following two error messages are generated:
  • Windows Update: The previous installation of an application has not been completed.
  • Logon with an administrator account to complete the installation.
If the non-administrator closes these error message dialog boxes, the non-administrator is immediately logged off the computer. The non-administrator cannot then log back on until an administrator logs on to the computer to complete the Internet Explorer installation.


This problem may occur if MSI 2.0 is installed on the client computer before the IEAK User Rights Deployment installation started.

Setup Switches

This hotfix support the following switches:
  • /q : Use Quiet mode or suppress messages when the files are being extracted.
  • /q:u : Use User-Quiet mode. User-Quiet mode presents some dialog boxes to the user.
  • /q:a Use Administrator-Quiet mode. Administrator-Quiet mode does not present any dialog boxes to the user.
  • /t: path Specify the location of the temporary folder that is used by Setup or the target folder for extracting files (when using /c).
  • /c Extract the files without installing them. If /t: path is not specified, you are prompted for a target folder.
  • /c: path Specify the path and the name of the Setup .inf file or the .exe file.
  • /r:n Never restart the computer after installation.
  • /r:i Prompt the user to restart the computer if a restart is required, except when this switch is used with the /q:a switch.
  • /r:a Always restart the computer after installation.
  • /r:s Restart the computer after installation without prompting the user.
  • /n:v Do not check version. Use this switch with caution to install the update on any version of Internet Explorer.
For example, to install the update without any user intervention and not to force the computer to restart, use the following command:
Q319560i.exe /q:a /r:n
