It will not even permit you to download it.
Actually you can. This from your link:

"The Blocker Toolkit will not prevent users from manually installing Internet Explorer 10 from the Microsoft Download Center, or from external media."

Yes you are correct, I misread that, at least it blocked it and the prerequisites from Windows Update for me. And if you knowingly have it blocked why would you try to DL it? I corrected my post. Thanks

In my case, I've got it blocked to avoid downloading it before the worst of the bugs are fixed. Once they are fixed, then I'll manually download it.

I tried the Blocker kit but it doesn't work. It only placed 3 files, while it said there would be 4.

The tool kit says it contains two componets. Three if you include the help file. It worked for me.


Toolkit Components


This toolkit contains two components:
  • An executable blocker script
  • A Group Policy Administrative Template (.ADM file)
Supported Operating Systems

Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) x86 and x64 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 x64
Blocker Script

The script creates a registry key and sets the associated value to block or unblock (depending on the command-line option used) automatic delivery of Internet Explorer 10 on either the local machine or a remote target machine.
Registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Setup\10.0
Key value name: DoNotAllowIE10

Here's what I based my assumption on:
Quote:
Instructions


Click on the link to download the package and select ‘Run’ or ‘Open’. You will be asked to accept the end-user license agreement (EULA) before you gain access to the package contents. The package contains 4 different files.
  1. Pick a location where you would like to place the 4 files above by clicking on ‘Browse’. Once you have specified the location to place the extracted files, click ‘OK’.

That's odd. I had three files and it worked. I bet the EULA is one and it's run instead of saved as the other three. There's a script to write the key and value to the Registry. It shouldn't need any files from IE. When I downloaded the "kit", I stored in my usual Download Tank folder on my D: drive. Perhaps you didn't do a Change Directory (CD) before executing the command.

For me, it was:
1. D:
2. CD DownloadTank\IE10-Blocker
3. IE10_Blocker /B

The same command can be used to Unblock IE10 later using /U for the parameter.
"IE10_Blocker /U" will unblock the update.

Perhaps I should say the files need to be on the OS drive? At any rate, as you see in the snip, I managed to get it to work.

(CD is the third line)

The command will work off any drive. You just need to change to the drive (#1 above) and directory (#2 above) where it's stored. Then execute the command.

I found out that to be the case. I tried it with it on my secondary drive and it did not work. So I place in C:\ and it worked fine.
