Automatic Version Synchronization

On this page of the Internet Explorer Customization Wizard 10, the Setup file for Internet Explorer® 10 is downloaded to your computer to the location that you specify. Setup contains both the full and express packages in the language that you specified earlier in the Internet Explorer Customization Wizard 10. These files are required to build a specific custom package for the operating system and language combination that you selected on previous pages. Automatic Version Synchronization runs each time you run the wizard. You must synchronize once for each operating system and language combination.

There are two types of versioning used by Internet Explorer Administration Kit: versioning of the custom package and versioning of Internet Explorer itself. For the first type, each Internet Explorer package that you create is assigned a version number, and older packages are not allowed to overwrite newer ones. Automatic Version Synchronization addresses the second type — versioning for Internet Explorer.

You may be prompted with a security warning before the Setup file is downloaded.
