Create a new custom task sequence

Do not assign a boot image to the task sequence
Confirm the settings;

Open the newly created task sequence in edit mode;

Create a two groups to add IE 11 Prerequisites and to run the Internet Explorer installer.

Under prerequisites Install group add all the Internet Explorer prerequisites, using
-    Run Command Line step for each KB and browse to the package created earlier
-    Use C:\Windows\System32\wusa.exe Windows6.1-KB2533623-x64.msu /quiet /norestart command in the command line
-    Select Disable 64-bit file system redirection

 Under option;
Add an if statement condition;
-    If None of the conditions is true
Then add a WMI Query;
SELECT * FROM Win32_QuickFixEngineering WHERE HotFixID = "KB2533623"

So this patch will be installed only if it is not installed previously on the target machine.
Re-peat above steps to all the prerequisites, changing the KB number in the command line and WMI query.
After adding all the prerequisites, add a Restart step.

Now add Internet Explorer install step under the Inter Explorer 11 install group.

                IE11-Windows6.1-x64-en-us.exe /quiet /norestart /update-no
-    Select Disable 64-bit file system redirection
-    Browse to the IE pre-req package created earlier

  Add another Restart step at the end. The completed task sequence will look as above.

Now, advertise the task sequence to a collection.

  1. i can see you have selected the option package. what package you select and another thing i need to cpy all .msu in the root C:\Windows\System32\wusa.exe? helpme please

  2. this package work with x86 /x64:?

    can you helme in this email please

  3. Hi Manuel,
    where exactly do you need help?
    First create a package with all the .msu / IE 11 prerequisites without any program.
    Then add a command line then choose the package, then add relevant KB number on the command line window.
    If you want to support x86 and x64 then you have to download x86 and x64 .msu files.
    Hope this will answer your question.
