Hi again TommyP!
Can i abuse of your patience again? ;)
The XP list could be better if you add the ie6 and ie7 hf. This could be possible?

Generally, i forget to thanks you TommyP, and all the other guys working for free for proyects like this.
I'm so sorry for that. Thank you! All of you!

Guys, thanks for the 2K3 list. That's grunt work that's probably beyond the call of duty.

tommyp, for the 2000 list, the Windows2000-KB918118-x86-ENU.EXE update links to Windows2000-KB914388-x86-ENU.EXE

It should be:

http://www.microsoft...;displaylang=en
OS: XP Pro 32-bit at work, 7 64-bit at home, and Linux Mint Debian Edition for fun

Hello tommyp,

As said before: big thanks for the effort and the list you compiled! I've updated my stickied post now to avoid any duplicates. However I have a few suggestions and improvement ideas:

1) It might be a good idea to have a special column with possibly a link to the corresponding thread in case the inclusion of an update requires more than just putting it into the respective directory. There are some problematic updates that need additional treatment like special .reg files to be included. I deal with some of them in my list.

2) It should be easily visible for each update for which sources it is valid. Basing on SP3 is okay, but there should be a differentiation between WM9, WM10 and WM11, and between IE6, IE7 and (in future) IE8. Maybe additional columns (I know, even more :)) could be used, marking with an "X" the applicability of this update. Some updates are valid for only one WM and/or IE version, others for several at once (with the D/L links still being different).
Additionally some time in the future you might encounter problems with language-specific updates in case you want to link directly to the files.

The best solution would be something dynamic like TC76 had it, but I can imagine this to be too much work...

3) Could you add the date to the .cab files (e.g. for WU/MU) also? I'd suggest to use the server-side date of this files (exact day, not only month and year). Thus updates could be recognized easily. Alternatively the versions should be shown.
For the LegitCheckControl.cab I'd use the generic link (http://go.microsoft....k/?linkid=39204) instead of a version specific one, as it might get updated occasionally. The same for OGAControl.cab (http://go.microsoft....k/?linkid=67633).

4) There are some outdated links in the list as well. Scanning it quickly I at least identified that you have KB950760 (cumulative ActiveX update of June) listed but at the same time KB956391 also (cumulative ActiveX update of October, which fully replaces the previous one).
And you should mention that the time zone updates via the .cab files (HFTOOLS package) are not the most recent ones.

I hope I have time during Christmas holidays to fully review the list. Perhaps we can again achieve a separation between a part with critical (mandatory) and a part with optional (recommended) patches.

Regards,
Tomalak

Tomalak - Thanks for the constructive criticism. To answer some of your Qs
1. If I remember right, there was one update that required a registry entry. The script was modded (the beta thread) which addresses this (I tested this and it works).
2. I'll need a hand with the WMP with XP. I don't use XP and I will never use WMP. Figuring out all the updates will take too much time. I welcome corrections/etc to make the IE/WMP section complete.
3. Thanks for the direct links. I'll use the date of the INF file inside the CAB on the update page.
4. I was unaware of the october activex update hotfix replacing a previous one. The KB article does not say that the old one is replaced. (?!) Have you verified this?

All - rememeber, I don't use XP and there are more than enough variations to test out (i.e. different WMPs, IEs, etc). I don't have time to test them all. But I'll be more than willing enough to update and consolidate the lists with feedback.

I can confirm what Tomalak has said. KB956391 replaces KB953839 which replaced KB950760. To verify this you need to see the Security Advisories, not the KB articles.

Does this update contain kill bits that were previously released in a Cumulative Security Update of ActiveX Kill Bits?
Yes, this update also includes kill bits that were previously set in Microsoft Security Advisory (953839).

(Source: http://www.microsoft...ory/956391.mspx)

Does this update contain kill bits that were previously released in a Cumulative Security Update of ActiveX Kill Bits?
Yes, this update also includes kill bits that were previously set in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS08-032.

(Source: http://www.microsoft...ory/953839.mspx)

MS08-032 is KB950760.

Thanks for compiling and maintaining these new lists.

Thanks for the tips guys, more hands means less work. I think we are ready to go. Pardon the changelog for now, I haven't been keeping up with it the last few iterations. However, there is a timestamp on when I made the last update to the page. When new hotfixes come out, the change log will get populated.

If anything else is missing, please advise.

KB956391 replaces KB953839 which replaced KB950760.

I didn't make it clear that this applies to both Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Not sure whether you know this, because only the Windows 2000 list has been changed.

Updated the lists.. Please advise of the WMP updates on Win XP as I won't test out every single combination (yes, I enjoy time away from the PC).

HF\ WindowsXP-KB955069-x86-ENU.exe Nov 2008 Critical 954459 XML Core Services 3

I think the 954459 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/954459) should point to 955969 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/955969) in the list.

Also I believe 955839 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/955839) replaces 951072 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/951072).
955839 is the December 2008 cumulative time zone update for Microsoft Windows operating systems.

I followed your list and after that WU is still asking for KB954600, KB952069 critical updates and for KB943729. Also is asking for WM11 updates KB939683 and KB929399.
Why don't you add them in your list?

Internet Explorer 7 Hotfix HF\ IE7-WindowsXP-KB958215-x86-ENU.exe Dec 2008 Critical 958127 IE7 Hotfix

The 958127 is referencing a link which doesn't exist. I believe it should be 958215 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/958215)

Internet Explorer 7 Installer HF\ IE7-WindowsXP-x86-enu.exe May 2008 N/A 927177 IE7 Installer

The 927177 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927177) refers to "How to uninstall Internet Explorer 7". I believe the correct link should be to 940767 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/940767) "Description of the Windows Internet Explorer 7 Installation and Availability Update"

Hi tommyp,
Looks like 893803 and 911564 are not needed for XP SP3.
When trying to install them at fresh hfslipped xp pro sp3,
there is a message that tells they are already installed...

I also wonder what use is LegitCheckControl.cab because
WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe is enough for me to
access windows update without downloading/accepting
any activex/updates (898461 & 892130 are of course included).

Maybe slipstreaming IE7 causes this?

HF\ WindowsXP-KB953155-x86-ENU.exe Oct 2008 Important 953155 Printing Service

I believe this one 'optional' based upon the info from http://www.microsoft...n/ms08-062.mspx as it only affects users running IIS:
I am running one of the platforms that are listed in the affected software table. Why am I not being offered the update?
The update will only be offered to systems on which the affected component is installed. Microsoft Windows 2000 and Windows XP systems that do not have Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) installed are not affected and will not receive this update. Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008 systems that do not have both IIS and Internet printing installed are not affected and will not receive this update.
Would it be a good idea to include a note indicating this is optional unless IIS is installed?

On a side note: with SP3 slipstreamed (before using HFSLIP), 951748 is not displayed via MBSA 2.1 or Windows Update. I've searched for a reason why but cannot for the life of me see why this isn't being included via MBSA 2.1 or Windows Update. I show adf.sys being updated later from 956803 but dnsapi.dll(a), mswsock.dll(a), tcpip.sys(B) and tcpip6.sys(B) all show as version 5.1.2600.5512 and dated 4/13/08 for (B) and 4/14/08 for (a) (see http://support.micro....com/kb/951748). Based upon the list by FDV and TommyP, I would expect MBSA 2.1 or Windows Update should be offering 951748 but neither one appears to do so.

911564 is included in XP SP3 via 946480 (http://support.micro....com/kb/946480/).
946480 is the List of fixes that are included in Windows XP Service Pack 3.

turdflinger - I'd prefer not to include other info such as you mentioned about IIS. It's not my intent to offer all scenerios of who installs what and what hotfixes are required for their system. It's already a pita with the various flavors of WMP and IE. In the case of the IIS update you mention, if someone has their winnt.sif file set up to install IIS, then the latest IIS will be installed. If the option is turned off, then it won't install, but the latest fileset still resides on the installation CD. The severity rating will remain as what MSFT says. It's not my call to redefine how MSFT rates their OS software.

spamkonto1 - Thanks for the tips. 911564 removed, but it appears that package installer 893803 is not part of the XPSP3, or at least that's what it says at KB946480. The legitcheckontrol.cab is periodically updated. It's good to keep the latest version there. I don't know how to answer your Q if it's an IE7 thing or not. I don't use IE7 or XP. I dislike both.

...
I don't know how to answer your Q if it's an IE7 thing or not.

Thanks, I was only leaving some comments after trying HFSLIP tool - I find it very useful.
I tried to use nlite, but it failed to produce successfull installation cd XPSP3+IE7
(battery problem - looks like unsigned drivers settins were to blame).
Then I found that nLite does more than I wanted (editing sfc.dlls) and since there
is this HFSLIP tool that any reasonable user can use, STUDY and, in case
of problem, FIX himself, I was delighted.

FYI: when trying to install 893803 under XPSP3 message says that
newer package installer version is already included.
That "question" about IE7 was not really a question ;-) but only information
that it was not exactly fresh XPSP3, but IE7 was extra added (so that
might caused mentioned symptoms).
Anyway, I will try to install really clean XPSP3, then 893803 and report
it later.

One question about scripting - I am new to cmd, but it looks like pretty good
shell (bash is my poison), but can you tell me why HFSLIP does not use
parameters when CALL-ing "shell functions" (i.e. CALL :HF %hotfix_filename%)?
Some 2K/XP/2003/Vista incompatibility? cmd limitation?

It's not a limitation, it's just a if-it's-not-broke-don't-fix-it thing. Sure there could be lots of optimization to the script, but personal life and work get in the way. :) I don't think I get the error for the package installer but if more folks say that the file isn't needed, I'll remove it.
