Posted on

Install this update to resolve issues in Windows. Download Update for Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 8.1 (KB3025390) from Official Microsoft Download Center. Windows 7 Language Interface Packs (LIPs) provide a translated version of the most widely used areas of the user interface. In order to download a LIP for Internet Explorer, you need to have a matching Windows LIP. For more information, see Download languages for Windows. Internet Explorer 11 is currently available in the following LIP languages. The latest Internet Explorer from Microsoft, Internet Explorer 9, was released March 14, 2011. In this article, We will be showing you from where to download it and how to install it. Also, we will be showing you some of the new features that IE9 has. Internet Explorer 9 can be installed on the following operating systems.

Internet Explorer has received a new pack of improvements this morning via Windows Update, as part of the new Windows 8.1 Update rollout that includes some changes for the Windows platform as well.

Internet Explorer 11.0.7 is not available as a standalone download for the time being, but you can get it by deploying KB2919355, which is actually the patch that includes Windows 8.1 Update for both 32- and 64-bit workstations.

The new version of Internet Explorer 11 brings the Enterprise Mode, which was previously developed for Windows 8.1 Update exclusively, on Windows 7 computers. This option helps organizations deploy modern versions of the browser, while keeping backwards compatibility for specific enterprise apps that can only be used on Internet Explorer 8 or older.

“Organizations can designate that Enterprise Mode be enabled for specific sites so they can benefit from modern Web standards, better performance, and increased security of a modern Web browser, while reducing upgrade costs and extending legacy Web app investments,” Microsoft says.

Additionally, Internet Explorer 11.0.7 also comes with new enhancements for the F12 Developer Tools, including an improved UI and Memory features, but also some minor changes to the Debugger.

The new version of Microsoft’s own in-house browser was initially developed to be used on Windows 8.1 Update, so it comes with support for a wider array of devices, starting with 8-inch tablets and ending with desktop computers with a 24-inch monitor. It can be used with both touch and mice, so users can install it on laptops, desktops, and tablets as well, as long as they run Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 Update.

“The Web is still front-and-center but new design enhancements make your browsing experience feel like it was made just for your device – like the number of tabs on-screen and the size of the fonts and menus. You can also now control when the browser remains on-screen or hides away for full-screen browsing depending on the type of device you use,” Microsoft explained.

Just as expected, the new Internet Explorer version is delivered automatically to users via Windows Update as an important update, so while you can’t get it manually from Microsoft’s Download Center, it should already be there waiting for you to install.

The very same version was released last week on MSDN and TechNet for subscribers and it’s now available for anyone running Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 Update free of charge.

Summary

The following custom solution is provided as-is. It may provide a functional workaround for customers who require this functionality. Given the uniqueness of each customer environment, Microsoft provides no assurances that these procedures will satisfy the customer's objective. Those who implement these procedures are highly encouraged to thoroughly test the procedures before they deploy them to a production environment.

The procedures in this article require the customer to be familiar with creating batch (.bat) files, the command-line interface, and working with 32-bit and 64-bit Windows operating systems.

Tip

All required resource packages can be obtained from the Microsoft Update Catalog website.

Complete each section fully before you continue.

Internet Explorer 11 prerequisite packages

  1. Create a temporary folder that is named Temp at the root of drive C, and make sure that at least 500 megabytes (MB) of disk space are available.

  2. By using KB 2847882 as a reference, download the individual packages for the appropriate Windows CPU platform (x64 or x86) on which Internet Explorer 11 will be deployed. Save these packages to the temporary directory that you created in step 1.

  3. In the Temp folder, create a new folder that is named Cabfiles.

  4. At an administrative command prompt, change to the C:Temp folder.

  5. Extract the contents of each prerequisite .msu package to the Cabfiles folder by using the following syntax:

Note

The following command-line example would be used to extract the x64 version of the Internet Explorer 11 prerequisite updates. (To process the x86 version of the component, replace the x64 (.msu) package name with the x86 (.msu) package name.)

Repeat these steps to extract all the prerequisites for Internet Explorer 11, and save the .cab files in the C:TempCabfiles folder.

Internet Explorer 11 core installation package

  1. Download the core Internet Explorer 11 installation packages that are needed for the target Windows platform, and save the packages to the C:Temp folder.

  2. At an administrative command prompt, change to the C:Temp folder.

  3. Extract the contents of the core Internet Explorer 11 packages to the Cabfiles folder by using the following syntax:

Note

The following command-line example would be used to extract an x64 version of the Internet Explorer 11 core installation package. (To process the x86 version of the component, replace the x64 package name with the x86 package name.)

IE-Win7.cab is the name of the .cab file that is extracted from the Internet Explorer 11 setup file (IE11-Windows6.1-x64-en-us.exe). It is saved in the C:TempCabfiles folder.

Internet Explorer 11 language packs

Note

Before you install the Internet Explorer 11 language packs, you must install the operating system language pack for the corresponding Internet Explorer 11 language. You can download and install this through Windows Updates or manually.

For Example, to install French Language pack for Internet Explorer 11, we must have French OS language pack already installed on the computer. For more information, see Language packs for Windows.

  1. Download the Internet Explorer 11 language pack packages, and save them to the C:temp folder.

  2. At an administrative command prompt, change to the C:Temp folder.

  3. Extract the contents of the Internet Explorer 11 language pack packages to the Cabfiles folder by using the following syntax:

Note

The name of the downloaded language pack for Internet Explorer 11 is IE11-Windows6.1-LanguagePack-x64-af-za.msu.
Output .cab file: 'Windows6.1-KB2841134-X64.cab.'

All the extracted language pack files will be have the same name (for example, Windows6.1-KB2841134-X64.cab). Therefore, you must make sure that you rename the .cab files so that they are not overwritten if you are extracting more than one language pack to the same location.

Internet Explorer 11 For Windows 8 Standalone Installer 64-bit

For example, rename the extracted .cab files as follows:

Language packOld nameNew name
Language pack 1Windows6.1-KB2841134-X64.cabWindows6.1-KB2841134-X64-Af-za.cab
Language pack 2Windows6.1-KB2841134-X64.cabWindows6.1-KB2841134-X64-fr-fr.cab

: From 'Windows6.1-KB2841134-X64.cab' to 'Windows6.1-KB2841134-X64-Af-za.cab'
: From 'Windows6.1-KB2841134-X64.cab' to 'Windows6.1-KB2841134-X64-fr-fr.cab'

The following command-line example would be used for extracting an x64 version of the Afrikaans language pack. (To process the x86 version of the component, replace the x64 package name with the x86 package name.)

Internet Explorer 11 spelling dictionaries

  1. Download the Internet Explorer 11 Spelling Dictionary packages, and save them to the C:Temp folder.

  2. At an administrative command prompt, change to the C:Temp folder.

  3. Extract the contents of the Spelling Dictionary packages to the Cabfiles folder by using the following syntax:

Note

The following command-line example would be used to extract the x64 or x86 version of the Spelling Dictionaries package.

Internet Explorer 11 cumulative security update

  1. Download the latest Internet Explorer 11 Cumulative Security Update (CSU) packages, and save them to the C:Temp folder.

  2. At an administrative command prompt, change to the C:Temp folder.

  3. Extract the contents of the Internet Explorer 11 Cumulative Security Update packages to the Cabfiles folder by using the following syntax:

Note

The following command-line example would be used to extract the x64 version of Internet Explorer 11 Cumulative Security Updates. (To process the x86 version of the component, replace the x64 package name with the x86 package name.)

For

Complete the package

After you follow all the previous steps, you can use the C:TempCabfiles folder as the source for the installation of the Internet Explorer 11 prerequisites, the Internet Explorer 11 core installation files, the language packs, the spelling dictionaries, and the latest cumulative security update. You can then use a batch file to start the installation of each component in sequence.

Copy the following sample script to Notepad, and customize it based on the package requirements. Package requirements include the following:

  • Internet Explorer (x86 or x64) core installation package
  • Language package
  • Spelling Dictionary package
  • Cumulative security updates

Then, save the script file as SampleScript.bat in the C:TempCabfiles folder so that it has access to all the files in that folder.

For Example: C:TempCabfilesSampleScript.bat

As soon as you customize and save the script file, you should double-click Samplescript.bat to execute it. A command prompt window displays the commands that are being executed by the script. The output resembles the following:

This script will install all the extracted .cab files without a prompt to restart. These files include prerequisites for Internet Explorer 11, the Internet Explorer 11 setup file, the Internet Explorer 11 language pack, the Internet Explorer 11 spelling package, and the Internet Explorer 11 cumulative security update.

As soon as the Samplescript.bat file installs all the cab files, restart the computer manually.

Sample script to install the x64 version of the .cab files

Note

The syntax in the following script remains basically the same for installing x86 (32-bit) Internet Explorer 11. The only change that is required is to replace all x64bit cab file names with x86 cab file names.

Important

This is a sample script file that is provided as a demonstration to achieve the scenario that was discussed earlier. We provide no warranties or support for this script file. You should thoroughly test the script file before you try it in production environments.
