IEAK 8 is the standard tool provide by the Microsoft for the customization of IE 8. This tool will generate the IE8-Setup-Full.exe and also IE8-Setup-Full.msi.

IE8-Setup-Full.msi. does not contain any feature, component, files or registries.
It is only installing the application by calling IE8-Setup-Full.exe through custom action. IE8-Setup-Full.msi is only serving as a wrapper to IE8-Setup-Full.exe and doesn’t seem to be fully utilizing advantages of MSI such as repair/self-repair or full uninstall of the application.

Also IE8-Setup-Full.msi created by the tool does not contain any supporting action to uninstall the application. Ultimately if we use IE8-Setup-Full.msi to install the application then we have to use silent uninstall command line to uninstall the application via the EXE.

So it is better to use IE8-Setup-Full.exe to install the application. IEAK8 has embedded the silent installation functionality into IE8-Setup-Full.exe.

Installation command line:

IE8-Setup-Full.exe

(This exe is generated by IEAK 8.0)

Application will be install silently by launching IE8-Setup-Full.exe or putting this IE8-Setup-Full.exe on command line. It does not require any additional silent parameter as the silent install feature is embedded inside the exe by IEAK 8 tool.

MSI created by IAEK 8 does not contain standard Custom Actions as in any other MSI.

Due to which it fails to uninstall embedded setup present in MSI. MSI is installing application by calling setup.exe through custom action. Also adding any files or registries to this msi are not getting installed.

Upgrading from IE7 to IE8 - if you have google as your default search provider and using IEAK, you need to delete the (HKLM)Searchscopes for IE

With a standard IE install, two live search providers and google are installed, with live search being the default provider. This can be manually changed by the user, by deleting on live search provider and making google the default search provider.

But of course this is user profile based and will be required to be done for every profile on every PC.

To solve this issue the registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchScopes must be deleted , prior to the IE8 install on the Target PC.

The IE 8 customization installation tool works great.
After running the wizard you can create the package to run with the Quiet switch or just run the package with the built in selections that you created the package with.

About "/log" causing failure: yes and no.
In testing the following was successful:
/log:c:\temp
whereas this failed:
/log:"c:\temp\IE8 setup"

I haven't had time to research whether the failure was due to the quotes or the space in the path.

Maybe consider turning off RSS feeds, have since discovered a lovely little feature that prompts a user to synch MS at Home & MS at work feeds (which of course they go yes to), which start filling up Outlook inboxes (we are trying to reign in the size of).

However it is probably better to control the feeds via a policy

Another option (if you're using MDT) is to extract the files from the IE8-WindowsVista-x86-ENU.exe file. This gives you four new files: eula, ie8, iesetup, sqmapi.dll. The extracted IE8.msu can then be imported as an OS package in the deployment share.
