Integrating Internet Explorer in Windows 7

Windows 7 users who frequently reinstall Windows might want to integrate or slipstream Internet Explorer 10 into the installation DVD or ISO to avoid manually upgrading Internet Explorer 9 to Internet Explorer 10. Slipstreaming Internet Explorer 10 into Windows 7 setup DVD or ISO isn’t not a hard job and is possible to perform with the help of Command Prompt.

In the past, we have shown how to create unattended Windows 7 installation, and also how to include your favourite themes, screensavers, and wallpapers in Windows 7 DVD or ISO using RT Seven Lite tool. In this guide, we walk you through steps that you need to follow  in order to integrate Internet Explorer 10 into Windows 7 setup or ISO file.

NOTE: You must need Windows 7 with SP1 in order to upgrade to Internet Explorer 10. If you have a Windows 7 DVD or ISO file without the Service Pack, we recommend you slipstream Service Pack 1 into Windows 7 DVD or ISO file before proceeding with this guide.

  • 7-Zip to extract if you have Windows 7 ISO file

    Stumbled across this – very useful. Errors to watch for: if you have the wrong index number, the “dism /mount-wim… [etc.]” command will fail. Use “dism /get-wiminfo /wimfile:c:\win7\sources\install.wim” to check it.

    Some antivirus programs get in the way of the integration commands (“dism /image:c:\mount /add-package /packagepath:c:\updates “) and the fail with access denied 0x80070005. McAfee did it to me. Disable AV and rerun.

    I tried to integrate IE 10 into windows 7 sp1 using rt7lite which didn’t work. I prefer your way worked like a charm.

    @ J. Ros
    Thanks for dropping by and providing the update. I always believed that index number is specific to Windows 7 editions. Will correct it. Thanks again.

  6. J. Ros says

    The index number for the win7 version is not allways as mentioned here. I got an home premium x64 image with index number 1. Use the get-wiminfo command with dism to view the possible index(es) of your image..

    then use that number in the commandline as mentioned above…
