AutoPatcher XP x86 Hotfix Depot
Posted 15 January 2008 - 10:47 PM
I was told in a previous post that the idea behind Autopatcher is to provide ALL updates to use offline in PCs which can not get updates from Microsoft Update...

And yes, AP should provide all updates for offline use.
But then again, the tool is not even an update...and a lazy detector at that.
If it's not an update or a patch then it won't be in AP; it's as simple as that.
Unless we're talking about the add-ons, but that's completely off topic.
Probably you could ask Erik to include this as an add-on or something rather than to be considered as a "critical update".

just ie6 sp1. if you have xp sp2, you have ie6 sp2. office 2003 has his own updates to that. sp3 to office 2003 shall solve that nicely too. but yes, that boring thing at automatic updates will still bore you if you don't update this kb for nothing

On my portable (with no Internet connection) I have Windows XP Pro SP2 with all Autopatcher provided Critical updates installed. This PC has no MS Office.
Still I get the Automatic Updates nagging me about KB873374.
I don't want to argue with you, but according to the link it is a Critical Update, Severity: Critical. Even if it's not, I would appreciate if you could include it to get rid of the warning.
sh1leshk4: how can I make Windows Update not show a specific update?

to not show an update, it's pretty easy: at automatic updates, double click it. uncheck the kb that you don't wanna see anymore. click next. you will receive an message. check "don't show me this update anymore". done. same thing with windows update website

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\GdiDetection Tool] "GDITool"=dword:00000001
Save this as GDITool.reg (or anything_else.reg) and add it to the registry with regedit /s GDITool.reg
OR you could use REG.exe at the command prompt:
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\GdiDetectionTool" /v "GDITool" /t REG_DWORD /d "00000001" /f
The /f (force) option may not be necessary.

why this issue is happening isn't my concern. but i'm concerned because when it happends, the user may go online without all security updates in place thinking that is safe. so far, i'm thinking about add 2 detections for IE7: the md5 for the first IE7.cat that was released and the current one, that shall prevent it from happend too often, but i'm believing that the best approach for that is some sort of dependency that i'm not kitte sure about how to implement. some ideas?

I'll take a gander at this when I get back to my computer later
Looks like if you go to HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer and look for Version, the current version is 7.0.5730.13. IE7 from the August XP AP Core is version 7.0.5730.11. Not sure how far back the versioning go but I think I"ll add .10 - .13 as the registry detections. Also I'll keep the single cat detection just in case.

by the way: the forum user gustavo pointed me an issue regarding md5 check for rootcert. looking for the issue, i discovered that root cert was updated. now, it's version 16,0,2195,0

KB944533 replaces KB942615
KB943055 replaces KB921503
Microsoft Silverlight 1.0 (KB946609)
windows live sign in (to those that have it)
edit: added download link to ms silverlight, taken from Microsoft Update Catalog
by the way: in there there's links to download the .exe for Windows Live Messenger too, but it list it with more than 500Mb, so i'm assuming that it downloads all languages

It looks as if KB944533 is being duplicated in AP XP unless there are seperate versions for IE6 and IE7?
In addition KB942615 should not be removed as KB944533 is not a complete replacement.
KB935560 contains a newer imgutil.dll file, not updated by any IE7 cumulative update.
Posted 15 February 2008 - 04:07 PM
KB944533 - There should be two versions of this update. One for IE6 and IE7 like you said =)
KB942615 - My personal opinion is that when MS does this, they do it for a reason. I'm going to omit KB942615 from AP for the time being. Sorry...
KB935560 - This update isn't public. If/when it becomes public, we can include it in AP.

can i ask why the 1st post in this topic is not updated showing the content of the latest release for xp-x86, unlike what happens for the other nt 5.x OSes releases in the respective topics ?
(moreover, recently also the changelog in the relase script for xp-x86, similarry to what has been done for the other OSes, has been replaced with a url pointing to this topic)
