Upgrading To IE9 Using Switches

If you want to install IE9 with special conditions, you can do it through command line switches. For example I am using a agent called KACE to run the executable for IE9 and I want to be able to install without user input, without a restart, and without slowing down the network by updating on the spot, I would use the switches /passive /no-restart /update-no. Here is a list of Internet Explorer 9 silent install switches for unattended setup:

/help

Displays this document.

/passive

Run the installation without any input from the user.

/quiet

Supposed to be Identical to /passive but did not continue install by itself for me.

/update-no

Do not check for Internet Explorer updates.

/ieak-full:<path>

Reserved for Internet Explorer Administration Kit use.

/ieak-branding:<path>

Reserved for Internet Explorer Administration Kit use.

/closeprograms

Close programs automatically to allow installation without rebooting the system.

/norestart

Do not restart after installation has completed.

/forcerestart

If a restart is required after installation, restart automatically.
