Download Full Internet Explorer 6 SP1 Standalone Installer

Internet Explorer logo
Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 use live installation method. The installation software will connect to the Microsoft server and download required files. You need to stay online during the whole installation. It does not leave installation files* after setup completed.

Is there any way to download the setup files only but not install it?
Yes, you can actually download Internet Explorer 6 SP1 setup files for later installation (or install on other PC).

Steps:

  1. Download Internet Explorer 6 SP1 setup file (480KB), and save in a folder where you want to keep the whole setup files. Here I use » c:\download
  2. Click Start > Run… , enter the following command line in the field provided.
    c:\download\ie6setup.exe /c:"ie6wzd.exe /d:1 /s:""#E"
  3. The IE setup will launch. After accept the agreement, you are provided the Download Options as follows.
    Internet Explorer Download Options

    Here you can choose where do you want to store the setup files and download setup files for which Windows version.

  4. Click Next button and it will start download the setup files, without install. Done!

My two cents

After cleaning the spywares/adwares of my office PCs, I usually will do the Windows Update as well. Since most of them are Windows9x running IE5, it will took long time to download IE6 for each PC… By saving setup files in my PC, I just need to access the files through LAN and setup their IE6. :)

P/S: Though using broadband Internet connection, but downloading the same files (12MB) for each PC is definately not fun.
