POSReady 2009 updates ported to Windows XP SP3 ENU

Recommended Posts

Just saw the new March KB3034344, it has a new win32k.sys inside.

I wonder if this is the fixed version?

Personally, I'm waiting until OnePiece uploads the new localized updated to his server(s), then I'll make a new POS Addon and test the new win32k.sys, but just wanted to share the news on the new update, maybe one of you can test it as a standalone update?

That is good news that we should get an "official" fix this week!

:thumbup

What is the version number of the new win32k.sys file, will it be OK if the unofficial patch is already installed?

:)

As before, I shall wait for this talented crowd to advise whether these latest updates cause a meltdown.

 

Alors, Patclash, si votre ordinateur pense que c'est un POS, il donne des comptes en euros ou en francs français?

I'd love to be able to try out KB3034344 for Windows XP, but unfortunately Microsoft Update is not working for me. It just gives me a 0x80248015 error. Curiously enough, Windows Update on XP seems to work. I dunno...

MrMaguire - same has happened to me a lot, but occasionally Microsoft Update works, as it did today in my XP Mode.  Then it went back to not working.  Also, it sometimes works in Firefox (not IE Tab), but that also has now become intermittent. 

Fortunately, Windows Update has been working as long as I DON'T permit it to move from windowsupdate.microsoft.com to update.microsoft.com.

Have no idea why this is happening.

MrMaguire - not Windows Update in Firefox.  Yes sometimes Microsoft Update in Firefox, but that also is now intermittent - worked once today in XP Mode, then stopped working.

roytam - thanks for link.  But my current muweb.dll is the same version as the one at your link.  Both version 256, with the same modified date.

Holy cats, Windows Update does work in Firefox, but you need the IE tab add-on.

 

 

Windows Update has been working as long as I DON'T permit it to move from windowsupdate.microsoft.com to update.microsoft.com.

 

How exactly are you doing that? It sounds like a great workaround.

 

On a related note, I still have yet to figure out why Microsoft has two different update websites that seemingly do the exact same thing.

In IE 8, Tools - Internet Options - Security - Trusted Sites - Sites, the ONLY Microsoft site appearing under "Websites" is  http://update.microsoft.com, not the others.

 

Then, when I do Start - Windows Update, IE asks me if it's OK to redirect from http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com to  http://update.microsoft.com, but I reply NO.

 

Weird, but it works to get into Windows Update.

 

I don't have a good method to get into Microsoft Update when it's balking.  Does anyone?

 

EDIT - right now, in Firefox with IE Tab, going to exactly update.microsoft.com without the http:// works to get to Microsoft Update.  Damned if I understand it.

Yep, not working for me again either!

:no:

Fixed it (again) by replacing muweb.dll with version 7.6.7600.256 from here.

What a PITA!
