Let's give this update a few days to see if it's true. There are plenty of occasions that things like this happen. On top of it all, I don't see why a hotfix from 2005 is coming to light many years later. I plan on updating the list after patch Tuesday.

Yay! I am getting my HFSLIP config converted from 2000 to XP and plan on implementing sometime post-Tuesday.

Thanks for the update mukke.

To all -

Question 1 - Is KB909520 a valid update? Or is msft pulling our leg?

Question 2 - Can someone compile a list of IE8 updates?

It's a valid update BUT
Or is msft pulling our leg?
seems like that to me: they're trying to push their new (vista+) 'way' of doing things.

So the real question is:

whether exist any hardware (smart card) that requires this new functionality and wouldn't work without it (won't work the old way)?

1: I still see KB909520 in WU.

2: The only update for IE8 is KB968220

(great - the one person who's responded to my other post regarding the gpl and hfslip (my first post), and my second one is to turn around and try correct something they've done. Oh yeah, I'm winning the 'most popular on this forum' award for sure...<grin>)

There seems to be a problem with Windows 2000 and the new DX9 hotfix (KB961373): hfslip 1.7.9_beta_h doesn't seem to recognize it as DX-specific while slipstreaming, i.e. unlike KB951698-v2 it will be extracted like a normal hotfix, and is also offered on Microsoft Update afterwards. The rest of this week's patchday seems to work fine though.

My config:

Win2k Pro German

IE6 SP1 + WMP 6.4

DX9c original release

MDAC 2.81 SP1

MSXML 4.0 SP2 + 6.0 SP2
