  • Internet Explorer 7 will install on your server as one of the updates that Microsoft pushes down through Windows Update, so yes it will run. The best way to make sure it installs correctly is to simply use the Update Now... button in the Windows Home Server console repeatedly until there are no more updates available.

    There should normally be no need to use it on your server, though, given that desktop access is unsupported. It's just that it's part of Windows. :)

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
