Updating Browser Configuration Settings

The Internet Explorer Customization Wizard creates an auto-configuration .ins file for each custom package that you build. By default, this file is named Install.ins, but you can rename it for each custom package.

After you install the browser, you can use the IEAK Profile Manager to update configuration settings by opening the auto-configuration .ins file, changing settings, and then saving the file. The IEAK Profile Manager also keeps the companion files current each time you save the auto-configuration .ins file.

You can change wizard settings as well as policies and restrictions.
