  • Virtuozzo containers for Windows 6.0

Starting from update 30, it is possible to install Internet Explorer 11 on Virtuozzo containers 6.0 servers and have all the containers running on these hosts updated with IE11.

Below are requirements and installation procedure.


  • Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.
  • Virtuozzo containers for Windows 6.0. Nodes, upgraded from Virtuozzo containers 4.6, are supported as well.

Installation steps

  1. Backup the server.
  2. Disable autoboot option for all containers.
  3. Install Virtuozzo update 30 or later.
  4. Reboot the host.
  5. Download Internet Explorer 11 update manually and install it on the host.
  6. Install all the available IE11 updates from Windows Update.
  7. Start the containers and enable the autoboot option back.
  8. Check IE11 functionality in containers.


This procedure is irreversible — it’s impossible to uninstall Internet Explorer 11 in current implementation.
