How to Download & Install a Full Version Internet Explorer

Download the ie6setup.exe file into the folder you just created from:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/downloads/critical/ie6sp1/default.mspx

or to go directly to the English version of the file:

http://download.microsoft.com/download/ie6sp1/finrel/6_sp1/W98NT42KMeXP/EN-US/ie6setup.exe

 

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).

Click OK.

Accept the EULA:


Click Next

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


Click Next

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.

Happy browsing.
