How do I control my Internet Explorer 8 deployment?

Internet Explorer 8 is available in the “Update rollup” category, and will appear in your WSUS administration console as follows:

Note that even if Auto-Approve for the “Update Rollup” category is on, Internet Explorer 8 will not automatically be deployed- you must approve the Internet Explorer 8 EULA before Internet Explorer 8 is deployed to your downstream clients. As the Internet Explorer 8 EULA is shared between all Internet Explorer 8 WSUS items, once you accept the EULA for any of the items, the remaining items may be approved without accepting the EULA.

What other Internet Explorer 8 updates will be available via WSUS?

Today we have also released the standalone Language Packs for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 to WSUS under the “Update” category. Also, cumulative security updates for Internet Explorer 8 and Internet Explorer 8 Compatibility View List updates will be made available via WSUS as they are released.

Where can I find more Internet Explorer 8 deployment information?

Visit the Internet Explorer TechNet Center – among other useful resources you’ll find an Internet Explorer Deployment Guide and information about the Internet Explorer Administration Kit which explains how to generate a MSI installer and distribute it using Systems Management Server or Group Policy.
