Downloading MS SP's to cd instead of updating PC

  Mark8882 08:21 16 Mar 2004

I want to download the Microsoft IE6 service pack 1 to a cd rather than my PC. I need to update a machine which is having trouble accessing the update.

If i run the update directly from the CDROM it should fix the problem but I cannot remember how to download the files to a specific location

click here and download it.

Easiest way to find a direct link is to search with Google for what you are looking for.

If you use a download utility such as FreshDownload (click here) you can download what you require to the Desktop or, as I do, to a FreshDownload folder with a Desktop shortcut, and then burn it to a CD-R using Nero.

This way you also keep a copy of the download in the folder for future use or as a backup. Just name the folder as the Target in FreshDownload.

If you have XP, by right clicking on the folder file you can call up a menu. The last tab provides the opportunity to record details of the file as a reminder of its use.

Once I have built up a number of useful files in the folder I burn them to a CD-R; opting for multisession mode means I can use the disk until it is full. You do need to keep am accurate record of such files on the disk's case sleeve.

If you want ie6 service pack 1 itself, Diodorus' 1st link is the one. But that is still not the full download. It's only 480KB, and when you apply it, it makes further downloads as necessary. I don't know why MS doesn't provide the full download for ie6 sp1 (as they do with XP service packs).

Download that file anyway and then click here and follow the instructions on how to download the rest of the update on to disk.
