What to do if installation of Internet Explorer 10 hangs and fails in the middle on Windows 7 at downloading required updates stage?. We’ve covered that Microsoft has officially released IE10 Release Preview for Windows 7 if you’ve downloaded IE10 installer and began the installation then you should know that much needed updates will be automatically downloaded and installed by the installer first then only installation of IE10 takes place.

So if updates download process interrupted or fails then IE10 installation stops, you should then need to download those updates manually and thereafter you can install IE10 without any issues.

How to download prerequisite updates for Internet Explorer 10 Release Preview offline that failed to install in Windows 7

Download and install below four mandatory updates on your computer.

  • 2729094 An update for the Segoe UI symbol font in Windows 7 and in Windows Server 2008 R2 is available
  • 2731771 An update that provides new APIs for conversion between local time and UTC in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2 is available
  • 2533623 Microsoft Security Advisory: Insecure library loading could allow remote code execution
  • 2670838 A platform update is available for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

It is a norm that you must have Windows 7 Service Pack 1 installed for IE10 RP to install, hope you passed this requirement already. If not then you need to be satisfied with IE9 or IE8 on Windows 7.

Have you installed IE10 Preview on Windows 7? if not then why? or are you waiting for IE10 final version? share with us in comments.

Thank you for your suggestions, i dowloaded all suggested files, all avalaible Windows updates, and some more from microsoft,
But Ineternet Eplorer 10 stubbornly refuse ton install on a Window seven new installation… And was working very well before the installation.
Of course I check disk, made a sfc scannow, checke for viruses and malware…
But the probleme remain.

Its just release Preview, I suggest you to wait for final version if you can’t sort out the problem with IE10 release preview version.

Have exactly the same problem, and nobody seems to know, what causes it :-(

none of this worked. i already have the 4 prerequisite updates installed. ie10 simply will not install. i tried the following:

-ran netframework repair tool and retried, still failed.
-ran netframework full repair tool, still failed.
-downloaded manual install file, still failed. (said i need windows 7 sp1… but I am sure I already have it since I have all updates?)

i dont even want ie. i think the problem might be because i uninstalled ie at some point… so i currently do not even have ie9. i tried to reinstall ie9 and it told me something like it wasn’t available for my os. lol. i give up.. i dont even use ie… the only reason i want to update it is to get rid of damned action center popping up with a ‘critical update’ which it cannot do. /annoys
