HOTFIXES: Windows XP SP2 & Windows 2000 SP4

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to figure out why a few updates were removed or not added for Win Xp SP2

MS05-012 comes in two parts

7 Feb 05 kb873333


18 May 05 kb894391

Isn't the second part a patch only if the first is installed?

What happended to

MS 05-016 kb893086 (repalces 05-005/890047)


MS 05-039 kb899588

Thank you

These hotfixes were removed. They are no longer needed because newer hotfixes superceded these. The monthly summary information on the first post shows when they were removed. By looking into the details for new releases that month, you can see that newer releases replaced the need for some of the older ones.

MS05-012 was not a two-part hotfix.

Microsoft released KB873333 (MS05-012) in February 2005.

In November 2005, Microsoft realized that a new problem was occurring as a result of having installed the KB873333 hotfix. To address this new problem, they released KB894391. So yes, KB894391 is only a patch and is only required if KB873333 is installed (and also is only needed on XP SP2).

In October 2005, Microsoft released KB902400 (MS05-051). This hotfix supercedes KB873333, which is why it was removed from the update list. And because KB873333 is no longer needed, neither is KB894391.

KB893086 (MS05-016) was released in April 2005, and was superceded by KB900725 (MS05-049) which was released in October 2005. KB893086 was removed from the list.

KB899588 (MS05-039) was released in August 2005, and was superceded by KB905749 (MS05-047) which was released in October 2005. KB899588 was removed from the list.

Did this answer your questions?

Thank you dhoffman.

Yes, you answered my questions.

The other day I was archiving 'removed' patches and couldn't figure out what I was missing. Sure enough, plain as day in the kb's FAQ. Guess I was going blind ~ and nuts.

Thank you again.

Anyone interested in turning this Word document into wiki?


Does it sound like too much work? Maybe a few of us can work together.

What purpose will this serve that the first post of this forum does not?

The first post on this forum is updated as hotfixes are released from Microsoft. That is basically all this forum is for. This forum is here so that people who are building and maintaining their unattended installations have a central resource to go to where they can get information about what was released. And more than that, the first post even contains links to Microsoft where you can go to get more information about each update, and download it.

So I'm a little confused about what your goal is.

Windows XP Hotfix Install Utility.


Suggestions for the next version:

  • Windows 2003 support (add new sections to settings.ini)
  • Custom bitmap by adding the name of bitmap to display in settings.ini and saving our bitmap in the same dir.
  • ability to launch the utility from the start >>> run >>> OK with parameters i.e.
    HFInstaller.exe --AutoReboot 0 --Minimize 1 --DeleteLogs 1 --LowPriority 1

I like the idea to use it for updating already installed OS without going to WindowsUpdate.

Windows Server 2003 w/ Service Pack 1 (SP1) critical updates if you want to update your WebPage.
