Windows Updates

776 posts in this topic

Adobe Flash got a security update also.

I've uploaded an updated SWFLASH.CAB (version 10.0.42.34) here

SHA1 checksum c0d67df4e53927ecf834ca007816d43a0c62add5

MD5 checksum 07bd474624bfa8e0937dea4eefdf18a8

@Kiki Burgh, no, that is not the latest. The latest is v1.9.40.0. I can't recall the MS URL right now. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=39204 should be it but is still linking to 1.9.9.1

Are you sure there is an updated cab provided by MS? Not a manually reworked one? As far as I know the most recent version of 'legitcheckcontrol.dll' is to be found in KB905474 (Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications, last updated 2009/03/24).

Sorry, but I can only provide the direct link to the German version. Maybe someone can determine the English one (from Windows update log)?

Extracting this file and then using "wganotifypackageinner.exe" (properly renamed to something like "WindowsXP-KB905474-x86-<LNG>.exe") in the HF directory worked for me. hfslip took care of the rest, no MU/WU complaints afterwards...

HTH,

Tomalak

I did a little more testing and also came across and old post of mine. Yes, 1.9.40.0 is the latest and is in the package WindowsXP-KB905474-ENU-x86.exe (extract WindowsXP-KB905474-ENU-x86.exe then extract wganotifypackageinner.exe from the results and you will find legitcheckcontrol.dll v1.9.40.0 ( I don't use notifications...yuk!).

If you go to WU the cab that installs is 1.7.69.2 => windowsxp-kb892130-enu-x86_72e487d115be77f49f64053893a23ecb58bc59cb.exe

If you go to the Genuine page ( http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/default.aspx ) the cab that installs is 1.9.9.1 => /C/0/C/C0CBBA88-A6F2-48D9-9B0E-1719D1177202/LegitCheckControl.cab Also at this url: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=39204

So I guess you are safe with 1.9.9.1. I think MS might have pulled the 1.9.40.0 due to false positives or they have their head up their butts with all these different versions. :wacko:

In relation to KB955759 (Indeo Codec) and following http://support.microsoft.com/kb/954157 is there a simple way to just unregister/remove the codec? Would an RDV in HFCLEANUP do the trick if I want to remove it?

I don't know if anybody uses the Indeo Codec but I thought it might be a good idea just to remove it altogether since I've never use it (or fail to realise if I ever do). If there is an existing mechanism to remove useless codecs in HFSLIP then please let me know, I'd be interested to use it :)

Here is what my RDV looks like in case anybody interested.

ir32_32.dl

ir41_32.ax

ir41_qc.dl

ir41_qcx.dl

ir50_32.dl

ir50_qc.dl

ir50_qcx.dl

ivfsrc.ax

gluon - you'd need a REM for that, not an RDV. The RDV is to remove stuff from cabs. The REM filters stuff out of the i386 and some inf files. You'll also need a RIN that looks like this: mmdriver.inf;x You'll need to find out what other INFs call out the other ax's. You'll need to filter those INFs out with the right RIN callout. Sorry, I don't have a list of that stuff. If you want to start a hfcleanup thread, please do so. This is a WU thread. :)

KB976325 replace KB974455

However, when I try to slipstream KB976325 it still shows as needed when doing windows update.

I did remove KB974455 before run HFSLIP so not sure what the problem is.

I had the same problem, and I discovered I had left KB976749 in HF. KB976325 replaces both KB974455 and KB976749. I removed it and reran HFSLIP and it worked fine.

Thanks for the speedy reply Tommy, yeah this is not the place of discussing hfcleanup. I'll spawn another thread when I giving up figuring out RIN stuff :) There's plenty of examples already so I just need to try understand what's happening.

how about KB969084? is this not supposed to be in HFSVCPACK_SW1? if HFSVCPACK_SW1 is not parsed, this update would be reported as missing ... likewise tried to have the script parse HFSVCPACK_SW1 (just as i inquired in the other thread) by adding strings to the default: FOLDERSET=HF\*.*;HFGUIRUNONCE\*.*;HFCABS\*.*;HFSVCPACK_SW1\*.*;HFSVCPACK_SW2\*.* ... with the same result, missing KB969084 ...

Mim0 thanks for addressing concern about KB955069 & KB954459 vs KB973687 in the latest update list (though i think last entry date in table 7 should be 2009-12-13 instead of 2009-12-3) ... further there are 2 entries now for this kb, 1 in table 2 as security update & another in table 3 as optional update (could be confusing) :lol:

following-up on this too:

Hi Mimo!

Thanks for keeping this so up to date.

Minor confusion - WindowsXP-KB955069-x86-ENU.exe and WindowsXP-KB954459-x86-ENU.exe are still shown in Table 2 as Critical and Important under an entry dated 2008-11, while in Table 7 it shows that they are included in KB973687.

Also, WindowsXP-KB969898-x86-ENU.exe is shown in Table 2 under an entry dated 2009-06, the HFSLIP File Checker says this is replaced by KB973346, but that is shown in Table 7 as itself being replaced by KB973525. :unsure:

I don't mean for this to be a double post, here and in the File Checker thread, just wanted anyone not using the File Checker to be aware of the above apparent discrepancy. (And everyone definitely should try the File Checker - it's going to be a really great addition to HFSLIP - maybe it even should be folded in so HFSLIP always runs the checker unless specifically told not to, and if it finds any problems, displays them and then gives the user a "Are you sure you want to continue?" kind of option. Might prevent some wasted runs, speeding things up overall. Just a thought!)

Anyway, again, Thanks for all your hard work!

Cheers and Regards

I thought so.

KB969898 has to be removed from table 2.

I thought so, again.

But I didn't understood what you found in table 7 :(

No real problem. It's just that if I had followed the File Checker's advice and removed WindowsXP-KB969898-x86-ENU.exe and replaced it with KB973346 as suggested, when I ran File Checker again it would have then told me that, no, KB973346 is obsolete and it has been replaced by KB973525, as shown in Table 7 by this line -

MS09-032: ActiveX Kill Bits (cumulative) (973346) --- Critical --- Replaced by MS09-055: ActiveX Kill Bits (KB973525)

So while the File Checker is "correct", it could have saved me a step. Anyway, again, it's no problem. The Tables are correct now, as far as I know. :thumbup

Thanks again for your hard work and for this wonderful, time saving tool!

Cheers and Regards

Here's a monkey wrench for XP. If you use wm9, you can upgrade to the v9.5 codecs using wmfdist95.exe in HF. These codecs don't have as many DRM as WMP11 does. HFSLIP already takes care of necessary hotfix updates if you use wmfdist95.exe. ;)

OK, understood! :D "replaced" is just an information. Not a necessary information but for me sometimes I'm interested for this information. "missing" is the only hint that an updated was expected in the HF-Sub-Folders.

In which category belongs wmfdist95.exe?
  • Optional Update for Windows XP SP3 in general (independend from the installed WMP which means it makes also sense when someone installs WMP11)?
  • Or is this just an optional update for WMP9? (than I would add a new table for WMP9 to my list).

mim0 - the wmfdist95 is only for wmp9. It's not needed if you use wmp11. Actually, to be safe, you probably should not include it if you are using wmp11.

Hello Mim0,

Regarding your update list:

  • KB958911 (optional GDI+ update) needs to be removed from table 3 (and your update checker), as it is outdated and has been superseded by KB958869 (MS09-062).
  • KB976098 (cumulative timezone update) is listed as to be put into HFSVCPACK_SW1. Any special reason for this? I have found that it works flawlessly in HF.

Kind regards,

Tomalak

mim0/Muppet Hunter -

Just a heads up. HFSLIP can slipstream WM11 codecs and not the player for XP. This could wreak havok if one were not using hfcleanup (I got my hfcleanup'd install down to 160 meg with all my codecs and drivers!!!). I'll come up with a list of what's needed codecwise for this.

Oh, thx for that Info! :)

Hmm... I found this info on the list which is now maintained by MH. And I think I have something in mind that tommyp has written something about that (but I'm not sure).
