Can we upgrade to IE using patching or do we have to through distribution? If we can do it through patching how? Thanks Ron

You can use either or to do the upgrade.I personally like doing stuff like this through distribution, but it doesn't matter, whatever is easier for you.

  • Sorry just read your full post. What you can do is create a smart label use this as the criteria:
    Title contains = Explorer 8, status = active, impact = critical. That'll get the installer and the patches.
  • That will only do updates on machines that have IE 8 installed on it.

I believe that patching will just give the machine updates for which ever IE version is installed, not upgrade to the newer version. If so, it would probably upgrade to IE 9 rather than IE 8.

  • Jeff, We are running Windows XP so IE 9 is not an option.
  • Ah, your right on that. I think dchristian is right though. A distribution would probably be a better way to go.
