Streamline 'Microsoft Update' into IE for unattended XP instal

Recommended Posts

Hi,

is it possible to streamline the MICROSOFT UPDATE into IE7, for use with unattended XP installation?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Here's how I got it working...

On a machine with Microsoft Update installed:

create c:\msupdate

stop the automatic updates service and rename the %windir%\softwaredistribution\datastore\datastore.edb file to datastore.old.

start the automatic updates service so it creates a "clean" datastore.edb file (1mb) and then stop the service again.

copy the datastore.edb file to c:\msupdate

delete %windir%\softwaredistribution\datastore\datastore.edb

rename %windir%\softwaredistribution\datastore\datastore.old to datastore.edb

start the automatic updates service

copy %windir%\system32\muweb.dll to c:\msupdate

save the bolded text beneath as c:\msupdate\msupdate.cmd

@echo off

copy "muweb.dll" %windir%\system32

net stop wuauserv

del %windir%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\DataStore.edb

copy "DataStore.edb" %windir%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore

regsvr32 /s muweb.dll

net start wuauserv

REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\microsoft.com" /v "*" /t REG_DWORD /d "2" /f

REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\windowsupdate.com" /v "*" /t REG_DWORD /d "2" /f

REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\1" /v "1001" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f

REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\1" /v "1809" /t REG_DWORD /d "3" /f

REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\1" /v "1200" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f

REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\2" /v "1200" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f

REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\2" /v "1001" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f

REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\2" /v "1809" /t REG_DWORD /d "3" /f

Run the batch file in the folder during your unattended setup. This doesn't actually install the activex control but will silently install it the first time you visit the website and the user will be none the wiser.
