Extracting safarisetup.exe will result in 6 msi files. First install AppleApplicationSupport.msi and follow that with Safari.msi. There is no need to install the other msi files.

1. Using 7-zip extract Safari.MSI from the EXE

2. Open Safari.MSI and extract:

  Program Files\Safari\Safari.resources\Defaults.plist

 

3. Edit Default.plist and change as required:

Add the following to set the default Home Page:

<key>HomePage</key>

<string>http://...</string>

 

Add the following to turn off the default browser check:

<key>BypassDefaultBrowserCheck</key>

<true/>

 

4. Create a transform with the following changes:

4.1. Replace Defaults.plist with the modified version

4.2. Add/modify the following properties

Add a desktop shortcut - DESKTOP_SHORTCUTS : 1

Turn off the Automatic Update task - SCHEDULE_ASUW : 0

 

5. Deploy Safari.msi with the transform applied, no other MSI's are required.

Hi,

I modified the Defaults.pslist with Notepad but Safari became unstable. The address bar was not appearing at all. After a 2nd try the settings were not applied and the browser still not working properly. Notice that the tests has been done on a clean Virtual Machine with Windows 7 64bits. Maybe it works for x86 only.

Is there any other way to set those custom settings for 64bits?

Kind Regards.
