/Q - Specifies a quiet "hands-free" mode. The user is prompted for information that isn't specified.
/B:iebatch.txt - Specifies the batch script file to use.
/Q:A - Specifies a quiet mode with no user prompts.
/Q:C - Specifies a quiet mode with the Cancel button not displayed, so the user cannot cancel Setup. The Internet Explorer Customization wizard uses this switch if you select the Install package silently option when you are installing as a corporate administrator.
/M:[0|1|2|3...] - Specifies the installation mode. For customized IEAK packages, 0 refers to the first installation choice, 1 refers to the second choice, and so on (for example, 0=minimal, 1=typical (default), 2=full).
/E:ComponentID,ComponentID - Specifies extra components to be installed regardless of the installation mode. Use this switch to specify components that aren't a part of the installation type you specified in the Customization wizard. This switch also overrides settings in the batch text file, if used. The ComponentID is a string that uniquely identifies a component; you can find the corresponding string in the component sections of the Iesetup.cif file.
/S:""#e"" - Designates the source path of Ie5setup.exe. The ""#e"" refers to the full path and name of the .exe file. Note that the path must be surrounded by two pairs of double quotation marks.
/R:N - Suppresses restarting the computer after installation. If you suppress restarting, your program should take care of restarting the computer. Internet Explorer is not configured correctly until the computer is restarted.
/D - Specifies that you want to download only the files for the current operating system.
/D:1 - Specifies that you want to download files for Microsoft Windows and Windows NT operating systems.
/G: - Runs specified installation sections in Iesetup.inf. Separate sections with commas.
/X - Installs Internet Explorer without the shell, icons, or links. This option is useful for hosting browser controls in your own application.
/X:1 - Installs Internet Explorer with the shell, icons, or links, but does not take over default browser or http protocol associations.
/P - Reports the required component and disk space cost for an installation. It enables you to see how much disk space will be used based on the installation options selected.
/F -(Fix) Reinstalls all items on the user's computer that are the same version or newer. Using the /F switch ensures that no component is replaced with an earlier version.
Below are msi wrappers to deploy Internet Explorer 5.x or 6.x using group policies in a Windows 2000 environment.
After you assign the package using a GPO, Windows Installer Service installs Internet Explorer automatically when the users start their computers. The users do not choose to install Internet Explorer. After the Internet Explorer installation is finished, the system reboots before a user is able to log on.
After the reboot an ordinary user can log on the system and no local administrator permissions are required to finish the Internet Explorer registration process.
Only a local administrator can remove the assigned software.
More information can be found in the attached README.TXT. These msi wrappers are loosely based on MS KB Q265048 article. The msi wrappers were created using Wise for Windows Installer 3.11.
