- First of all, you should do one sample installation of Adblock Plus for Internet Explorer.
- Go to C:\Users\IEUser\AppData\LocalLow\Adblock Plus for IE\ (of course, you need to adapt this to your local drive/user names)
- Make sure to deploy the files prefs.json and patterns.ini to every new ABP for IE installation, into the same folder
Please note that the file prefs.json contains the current installation's version number, which in some cases can trigger certain behaviour. To make sure, that this will be correct, please update this file whenever you centrally deploy Adblock Plus with the file belonging to the newly installed version. On updates, the file will be updated by ABP itself. If your users have sufficient permissions, updates that will be checked for on automated base can be installed by the user himself. If they don't have sufficient permissions, you might want to avoid the update notifications by blocking the update request URL in your firewall:
- Code: Select all
Filter lists will still be updated with this URL blocked.
