Lite Touch crashing after IE8 installation (Memory Reference errors)

This is one annoying bug. If you add the IE7 or IE8 installation to MDT and run the installer in passive or quiet mode- you will receive error messages during your deployments. These errors don't affect the outcome of the deployment, all is well and dandy but it is a bit of a piss off when you have to press okay a couple of 4 times after receiving memory access errors.

The reason this happens is because the IE8 installation will attempt to restart after installing, before notifying litetouch it is completed the install so litetouch will abruptly get closed and shutdown, causing it to spam a serveral error messages as it's being killed off.

The solution
In MDT edit Internet Explorer's command line to run with the "update-no" and "norestart" option. Then add a checkmark the restart computer after installing this application. See below for the complete command.

IE8-WindowsXP-x86-ENU.exe /quiet /update-no /norestart
