Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista

This setting has been removed in Windows® 8. It was deprecated in Windows® 7. Use DisableFirstRunWizard and DisableWelcomePage instead.

This information is for reference only.

IEWelcomeMsg specifies whether to skip the First Run Wizard and the Welcome page when the user runs Windows® Internet Explorer® for the first time.

If IEWelcomeMsg is used with either of the new settings: DisableFirstRunWizard or DisableWelcomePage, IEWelcomeMsg will override the values in those settings. We recommend that you clear the value for IEWelcomeMsg, and use the new settings instead.

 

true
