811493 - Is it needed?

Recommended Posts

Just did my first XPCreate and went to windowsupdate and only needed 1 Windows Update (817778 - Not going to bother with that one). But I ran another tool to check for patches and found that 811493 was needed (This update addresses the Buffer Overrun in Windows Kernel Message Handling could Lead to Elevated Privileges (811493) for Windows XP Embedded with SP1).

Anyone know if this is critical? Best method to slipstream? Or should I just wait for SP2? Again windowsupdate doesn't report that this is needed to be installed.

It's probally because if you read it, it's for Windows XP Embedded. Do you have Windows XP Embedded?

Well, I did slipstream SP1a. I'm pretty sure my XP disc didn't have SP1a embeded into it. Checked the log and said Found Service Pack Version: 0.

ummm...

Windows XP Embedded is another version of XP. Like Professional and Home. It's just another variation, primarily used in PalmPC's and other small electronics, like ATMs.

well, I installed it on a desktop and seriously doubt this version is xp embedded. might just be reading the reg wrong.

Mute point ... the Security Rollup superceeds that hotfix, which just has the ntkrnl*.exe files (or whatever they were called). Otherwise it would be on the list. :)

The Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer is my reference point for hotfix installations. Windows Update is ... flakey.

Yes, but I can handle a "Version greater than expected" error much better than a "Hotfix not installed" error!
