IE7 via WSUS

Wow. That was frighteningly simple. The client's think they are getting a security update just like they normally get, and BOOM! IE7 is installed.

Of course, I did everything with local administrative privs. Tomorrow, I try all of this again with user privs. This has been a stumbling point with IE previously, since you had to have administrative credentials to log in the first time after reboot for everything to go well.

Wow, you're really on the ball on the upgrade. You're not worried its going to break systems, or have you finished all of that preliminary testing ? Have you noticed any drawbacks ?

Oh, yes we are very worried about that and won't be deploying this (or Vista) any time soon. It's just that this was the first time that IE can be deployed via WSUS, and I was really curious how that'd work.

Personally, there would have to be a jihad to get Firefox off my system. =)
