HOTFIXES: Windows XP SP2 & Windows 2000 SP4


 Share

Recommended Posts


KB890175 is still listed under Windows Update from a clean install point. I know that it won't probably show up if you install all the other hotfixes but my experience tell me I should leave it there.

Actually, I replaced it with KB896358 in my own update set (as MS05-026 says it has been replaced) and windows update showed 0 critical updates.

While it may be the case that it's listed on a clean install, that seems to me to be a Windows Update error, as installing KB896358 makes KB890175 disappear from the update list (as it should).

When SP2 came along, the GDI+ update was supposed to be unecessary but it was still showing up sometimes on certain configuration.

Such as for every single Windows that has Office installed. :P

Silly Microsoft.

[EDIT]

On a side note, I've been using a homebrewed Auto-It-based XP Post-SP2 Updater for a few months now, and I think it's pretty stable.

All it does is check for the various registry keys that each update should modify, shows you the ones that aren't yet installed, and runs each of the update packages (official MS ones, except for WMP and .NET) in silent mode, showing you the progress as it goes down the list.

If anyone is interested in this, I can clean it up a bit, make it a little more user-friendly, and post it in a thread.

I might also be able to add an automation switch that still shows update progress which you can use in SVCPACK on an XP CD. This would allow you to see what update is currently installing and what has yet to be done.

Thanks,

KB884883 is already at V8, when I downloaded the new version, the filesize went up from +- 1MB to +- 4MB :P

The problem is that when a KB nr. is upgraded to a new version (like for KB884883), it isn't shown on windows updates (well execept for KB893066 and Windows installer) . So if you intergade them, or install the updates with a batch file you are still working with an older version.

This is why I redownloaded all hotfixes again. Below you can find an attachment with the results.

hotfixes with an "!!!" behind it have been upgraded to a higher version nr.

Note that this list is for a dutch version of XP

@Nilfred & dziubek

Indeed KB884020 isn't needed anymore, I did a fresh install yesterday without KB884020 and there where no new windows updates
