Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

Well I've reviewed the updates as best I can and have gone through with the installation. I dunno, somehow I feel as if Microsoft isn't leveling with us on everything, you know?  Oh well

(I'll let you all know how it goes.)

Well, something in one of the updates did overwrite my patched uxTheme files, so I fetched those from a backup, just so my themes worked.   I guess my .NET was all patched up, since the update did not apply.  Otherwise, all is well in Vista-Land!

Hmmmm for IE9 x64, I have KB4339093

Oops, so do I.  Getting sloppy in my old age,   

As for the registry patches with the the .NET updates ...  I never get them to run --- they want some additional parameter I haven't figured out, so  I'm just mentioning them to be complete.

I have bravely gone where no man has gone before (only because no else uses Vista ....lol)

Well you're braver than I am.  I've installed the .NET and IE9 updates and the first two security updates, but it'll be another day or so before I get to another couple of updates -- it's a pain in the patootie figuring out which update to blame when things aren't working well and you've just installed a dozen software "upgrades", so I limit myself to two or three updates at a time and give them a couple days to see if they choke the system in interesting ways. 

Usually they don't of course.  Two months out of three, if that's your definition of "usual".
