IE 6 Reg entry under Win98SE
Posted 09 January 2004 - 08:03 PM
I am trying to install a security patch for Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1.
When I run the install program I get an error msg which says "This update requires Internet Explorer Service Pack 1 to be installed"
However service pack 1, is installed, the installation is identified in the Add/Remove programs utility in Control Panel, and also under 'About' on the IE Help button.
I can only assume, that the security patch installation programe is looking for something in the registry to confirm that Service pack 1 is installed, and cant find it. Unfortunately I have no idea what that might be.
If anyone has any suggestions as to how I might resolve this problem I would be glad to recieve them.

What patch would this be? Is it one issued by Windows Update, or are you installing a patch you downloaded at an earlier time and decided to install manually?
The patch in question is 818857 published Sept 2003 for more info see Windows knowledge Base Article 818857.
I downloaded it directly (rather than through WinUpdate) last weekend.
Further to Homiebrah's reply my reg entries for both build and version number are also 6.0.2800.1106

Higher is better, and 824145 is the latest cumulative patch for any version of IE6 SP1.
