Prepare to Create a Custom Browser Package

Before running the Internet Explorer Customization Wizard 10, you should perform the following steps based on your license agreement and organization's needs.

Also use information from the following topics as part of your planning:

Before you deploy a custom browser package with Internet Explorer Administration Kit 10 (IEAK 10), you should create a test version. Install the test version on lab computers, and test and evaluate its performance. Then update your package with any changes you want to make. Creating and deploying custom Internet Explorer® 10 packages should follow the same process as upgrading or changing any desktop component in your environment.

Determine the operating system requirements

  • Verify that the computer you will build your package from, as well as the computers on which you will install your package, meet the hardware and system requirements for IEAK 10 and for Internet Explorer 10. For more information, see Getting Started with IEAK 10.

Gather the URLs for Home, Search, and Support pages

You can create your own Home, Search, and Support pages to provide information to your users. You are prompted for the URLs for these pages when you run the Internet Explorer Customization Wizard 10.

Determine whether you will use a CMAK profile

You can include a profile created with Connection Manager Administration Kit (CMAK) as part of the custom browser package. You are prompted for the location of the profile when you run the Internet Explorer Customization Wizard 10. For more information, see CMAK and IEAK.
