WSUS and WGA and updates that require WGA, IE7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I run a test lab that for security reason, is not allowed to connect to the internet.

    I have been able to setup WSUS  to keep the machines in the test lab updated with the latest windows update. Using the WSUS server has been working fine, until I try to install IE7 on the clients.

    The update for IE7 fails because to can not validate using WGA. I can not use WGA because the machines, for security reason can not be connected to the internet.

    Who can I get IE7 installed on my clients, in a automated fashion, without connecting to the internet? 

    These are all valid OSes.

  • Validation works in an offline state as well. I would suggest checking into the IE7 Administration Toolkit to script your installer which automatically includes WGA Validation.
