Erik, that's the idea. only public releases are included in ap in order to be more stable. ok, some of non-public updates already has replaced public releases that ap don't have. so, if ap don't have those that are public, it should be included, even if those are already replaced by non-public fixes. there's even an kb about issues with opening new windows in msie 7 that may very well do an system crash.
i've added some of those modules that are in my previews post. this is the remaining list, after removal of those that was already replaced:
KB928595 - added in critical - v5
KB931678 - added in critical - v2
KB922582 - added in critical (this one was in AP in Jun07)
KB930916 - added in non critical (this one was in AP in Jun07)
KB936357 - added in non critical (this one was in AP in Jun07)
KB938828 - added in non critical
KB927891 - added in non critical (this one was in AP in Jun07)
KB935843 - added in non critical (this one was in AP in Jun07)
plus, KB924867 was already replaced by KB935839 and booth are in AP
after running clean install tests, i've notice that WU say that KB925720 is needed. in fact, this one was in previews versions of AP. issue: at Microsoft Download Center, the only one version that you can download claims that is from October 2006 and WU says that the newer version if from February 2007. an new version has arrived and isn't at MS Download Center, right? wrong. that file that you may download from MS download center has the exact same md5 for KB925720.CAT than the version that WU calls of Feb 2007. big deal, right? wrong. looking into registry, the build date is Wed Oct 04 07:40:05 2006, for booth versions. plus, if you install that version of October, this update is not showed also needed anymore.
so, i'm adding this one again.
i was almost forgetting: WU also claims also needed KB932471. if you download this one, it doesn't install. reason: this one is an update to .net 3 and apup has .net 3.5, that installs .net 3 sp1 that makes this kb obsolete. so, this one is just an mistake from WU
i've found an issue regarding .net 3.5. i'm having troubles with an laptop that doesn't shutdown after re-install and apply all updates. i've realized that is done due an driver of this notepad install some sort of component (d... Acer CrystalEye webcam 22.214.171.1240-1.0 and his fake WHQL). so, instead install drivers and then update, i'm trying apply updates and then install the drivers. but there's an issue with .net 3.5 redist: it asks to download about 65MB in updates in order to install. i've taken shortcuts to install, yes, but this say me that .net 3.5 have some sort of pre-req, that shall be added into the apm file to prevent this. someone has some idea about? in my tests, after update all, it still shows also needed something about 12mb, that you just go online and the instalation goes fine without download nothing.
edit4: really, really serious debugging... we missed one update: KB941833. This update resolves reliability and application compatibility issues in Microsoft XML Core Service 4.0 Service Pack 2. (that AP has). so, i'm adding this one too. but this one has also prereq msxml4sp2. better saying: this one replaces msxml4 sp2
