  1. Well, if you have MS Windows XP Pro SP2 along with IE7, WMP11, Windows Live Messenger 8.1 installed, then, if you install all of the (currently 90) patches listed in the first post in this thread, your computer will be fully patched according to what Microsoft serves out in Windows Updates. If you do not have all of the add-ons listed (IE7, WMP11, Windows Live Messenger 8.1), you may need other patches as well. Is this for building an automated install CD or patching an existing installation? If the later (which it kinda sounds like), you'll likely want to use Windows Update instead.
  2. Four questions, four answers... kinda... 1) Which Hotifx? 2) Which Hotfix? 3) The Support ID would be a number associated with a Support account that you have already established with Microsoft. There is no generic Support ID that someone could share with you. 4) Which Hotfix? - John
  3. Well... according to the Internet Explorer Blog, it doesn't seem to include any patches, and they're not pushing it to people who already have it installed, so it's certainly not critical: It's hard to tell if it removes any patches, though. MS has been pretty good with not replacing newer files with older ones in their patches and some other installers. I'll try to test this tomorrow and let everyone know (unless someone else tests it first). - John
  4. The .NET Framework versions (1.1, 2.0, 3.0) aren't upgrades... they're different versions that can all exist on a single PC simultaneously. While you may indeed have .NET Framework 3.0 installed, you likely have .NET Framework 2.0 and .NET Framework 1.1 installed as well. KB933579 - Looks like this one may have been missed... was released August 14, 2007 KB934238 - This only applies to non-English versions of Windows XP KB925720 - This only applies to Windows XP with .NET 3.0 installed. I don't know what the list assumes as far as your .NET versions. - John
  5. WGA != WGA Notifications... they're two different things, and MS doesn't have a "normal" download for WGA. You have to get it from the web site (or your browser cache, which I'm trying now...) The KB article states that this patch will show up if you have the "Korean language Input Method Editor (IME)" on the Koreal Language edition of Windows, or if you have installed Microsoft Office Proofing Tools 2003 (English version) or Korean language versions of the Microsoft Office 2003 products. In either case, this list is based on the English version of Windows and doesn't include Office-based patches. - John
  6. Guy, Thanks for the quick update for these two new patches. Why no correction of the "KB905474.exe /q:a /r:n" command at the same time? - John
  7. Hrm... my Vista computer *did* reboot last night due to patching activity (blowing away an unsaved text file...g rrrrr...) So... me too! - John
  8. No... the downloaded file works great with "/quiet /norestart /nobackup" without any unpacking. The issue is that the oft-updated first post of this thread instructs the user to use "/q:a /r:n" which doesn't work. - John
  9. I am using the downloaded file, renamed "KB905474.exe". No other changes. - John
  10. The switches are wrong. The "/?" dialog box pops up listing all valid switches, indicating that this should be "/quiet /norestart" instead of "/q:a /r:n" - John Crap... it could also be that I actually had left the "(cannot use the /integrate; option)" on my command line. Crap. Well... I fixed that, but the error still stands. The switches are wrong and need to be changed to "/quiet /norestart".
  11. The switches are wrong. The "/?" dialog box pops up listing all valid switches, indicating that this should be "/quiet /norestart" instead of "/q:a /r:n" - John Crap... it could also be that I actually had left the "(cannot use the /integrate; option)" on my command line. Crap.
  12. In Win XP: The switches are wrong. The "/?" dialog box pops up listing all valid switches, indicating that this should be "/quiet /norestart" instead of "/q:a /r:n" - John
  13. Hey there... Very first item in the XPSP2 list has an error The exe in the "Switches" line is missing a character; should be KB939... not KB99... (edit) Last-ish item too: Wrong exe.
  14. Nope. Slipstreaming is only possible with the Enterprise version of the Office System 2003. Sorry.
  15. Possibly a stoopid (or already asked) question, but... Why is the list of patches in reverse chronological order? I'd love to simply copy and paste the contents of the first post into my svcpack.inf, but aren't you supposed to apply them in chronological order? If so, you have to shuffle the entire list around from top to bottom in order to get them in the right order. Hopefully, I'm wrong, the existing list works great, and nobody needs to change a thing... but I don't think so... - John
