Hi

Fairly new to SCCM 2012 and have a requirement to downgrade IE11 on specific machines only.

I tested the process manually with scripts (as below) and it works prefect:

  • Execute script 1 - Detect and remove IE11.
  • Reboot
  • Execute script 2 - Install IE10 if required.
  • Reboot

When I tried using either an application (my preference) or a package, the scripts run, but nothing actually happens e.g. IE11 is still present.  In the Execmgr.log the script has run.

The scripts for removal of IE11 I have tried are as follows:

Method 1 (preference):

FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-*11.*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /quiet /norestart

Method 2:

WUSA.exe /uninstall /kb:2841134 /quiet (tried full path also)

Is there best practice for this or something I am overlooking.  I have tried entering the script into batch files, vbs files and just entering the script directly into an install program command line.


Is this something to do with Windows Redirection or the System Account.


Thanks in advance.

Hi,
remember you will have to change the cmd.exe and WUSA.exe if you are carrying this out on 32bit and 64bit systems.
I've successfully used this method under the system account on 32bit and 64bit systems (downgrading to 8), however  I did not need to use WUSA.

I personally would choose the first method (using the package manager)

Cheers
