IE10 & IE11 AMD64 user profile creation crash workaround for WES7 & POS7
Posted By Windows Embedded Team
On amd64 runtimes, ie4uinit.exe may crash during new user profile creation (when user logon for the first time).
Applies to: Windows Embedded Standard 7 and Windows Embedded POSReady 7
IE Versions Impacted: IE10 and IE11
Workaround: delete ie4uinit.exe from %SystemDrive%/Windows/SysWOW64.
Automate this process by: Launch command prompt as Administrator and run the following commands.
You can use these commands in a script/batch executed as an Asynchronous Command in your WES7 Answer File.
takeown.exe /F C:\Windows\sysWOW64\ie4uinit.exe /A (the Administrators group will become the owner)
icacls.exe C:\Windows\sysWOW64\ie4uinit.exe /grant Administrators:F (the Administrators group will get full access)
