6 posts in this topic

KB2728973 , rvkroots.exe (Revoked Roots Update), will throw up an error when trying to integrate with nLite... Fixed in the new nLite. nLite



I have created an add-on creator that correctly adds it to the SVCPACK folder. Download here: Add-on no longer needed. Use the new nLite. nLite

This is for those that don't use my UDC script. For those that do, sit tight while I add it to this months update.

More info: KB Article Security Advisory

Note: This update replaces KB2718704 and will probably be the way MS handles those pesky Digital Certificates from now on.

What about the crypt32.dll file in the KB2718704 update? Does KB2728973 patch that file?

EDIT: I figured it out. No, rvkroots.exe does not contain the file, so it does NOT replace KB2718704.

Double post.

I've installed the update and extracted 28 new registry entries in the update. I think this could make slipstreaming much easier.

See the attached .reg file.

rvkroots.exe should modify other certificate entries as well, but I found that it was only the header that was changed, so it won't matter.

Edit (14 July 2012): I upload a new version because I forgot this registry entry in the previous one:

; Windows Update checks this.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{C3C986D6-06B1-43BF-90DD-BE30756C00DE}]
"Version"="1,0,2195,0"

Yeah, I have a reg file already.

I forgot about crypt32.dll....

When I attached my .reg file, I mean it is possible to integrate those registry entries directly into nLite.inf, just like the old KB2718704 update did.

Your UDC script only scheduled the program to run when the Windows setup starts to install hotfixes. I personally don't like your method.

Here's your preferred method for those that want it.
