Using IEAK 11 to Create Multiple Versions of the Custom Browser Package

You'll need to create multiple versions of your custom browser package if:

  • You support more than 1 version of Windows®.

  • You support more than 1 language.

  • You have custom installation packages with only minor differences. Like, having a different phone number or a different set of URLs in the Favorites folder.

The Internet Explorer Customization Wizard 11 stores your original settings in the Install.ins file and will show them each time you re-open the wizard. For more information about .ins files, see Using Internet Settings (.INS) Files.

To create multiple versions of your browser package

  1. Use the Internet Explorer Customization Wizard 11 to create a custom browser package. For more information about how to run the wizard, start with the File Locations: Internet Explorer Customization Wizard topic.

  2. Go to the Cie\Custom folder and rename the Install.ins file to a name that reflects the version. Like, if you need a version for your employees in Texas, you could name the file Texas.ins.

  3. Run the wizard again, choosing the newly renamed folder as the destination directory for your output files.

    ImportantImportant
    Except for the Title bar text, Favorites, Links bar, Home page, and Search bar, keep all of your wizard settings the same for all of your build computers.

  4. Repeat this process until you’ve created a package for each version of your custom installation package.
