Disable IE ESC from command-line

To disable IE ESC (Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration) you just do it form the GUI in Server Manager. This is not practical or possible when you are doing a operating system deployment from Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager or any other deployment solution.

Use this command to update a registry key to solve the problem.


The first one disables IE ESC for Admins and the second for Users

REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{A509B1A7-37EF-4b3f-8CFC-4F3A74704073}" /v IsInstalled /t REG_DWORD /d 00000000 /f
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{A509B1A8-37EF-4b3f-8CFC-4F3A74704073}" /v IsInstalled /t REG_DWORD /d 00000000 /f

That’s it.
