Download the ie6setup.exe file into the folder you just created from:
or to go directly to the English version of the file:
After the file is downloaded into the Windows Update Setup Files folder you created, Go to Start->Run and type in exactly (or just copy and paste it):
“C:\Windows Update Setup Files\ie6setup.exe” /c:”ie6wzd.exe /d /s:””#E”
You must include all of the quotes (6 of them).
Accept the EULA:
You will get to a box where you can now download IE6 for all versions of Windows at once, just check them all off or choose just the Operating Systems you want. If necessary, change the download path at the top of the window to:
C:\Windows Update Setup Files
When it’s finished downloading you’ll see this:
Click OK and then go into the Windows Update
Setup Files folder previously created and double click the ie6setup.exe file to begin the installation.
You can save the Windows Update Setup Files folder to a server or to a CD so you can do
future installations on other machines. You must first copy the Windows Update
Setup Files folder to the root of the C:
drive of the machine you are doing the update on. Then open the Windows Update
Setup Files folder and just
double click the ie6setup.exe file to begin the installation.
If given the choice during the upgrade to do a Typical or Minimal upgrade (NT,
98 & maybe ME), I always choose the Minimal option and check off all the
options I want. So in this case Minimal is more.
It’s best to be connected to the Internet because the updater wants to check the
signatures of the files. If you don’t have an Internet connection available, you
can still do the update, but it will take longer and you may have to click
Ignore, Continue or OK (I can’t remember exactly) to complete the upgrade.
