i reformatted my harddrive around march 3rd/4th and ran into the problem with the "microsoft update" website, again, when i tried to install the windows-updates..

 

several other people also noticed the problem with the "microsoft update" website when they tried to install windows-updates this past (march) windows update-tuesday..

 

replacing the "muweb.dll" file, version 7.6.7600.257, with version 7.6.7600.256, resolved the problem..

Is there any potential problem with just keeping the 7.6.7600.256 version of muweb.dll installed?

I rolled back to that version to fix the MU site when it first failed last November, but when it was apparently fixed at the other end I put the original version back.

Now  it's failed again I've had to revert to the older version again.

I'm thinking to just leave it like that now!

I will dare to guess that 2000/XP/2003 users would be not only unaffected but also pretty much indifferent by the troubles a Windows 7/Server 2008 update may cause .... :whistle:

That's not the only update, jaclaz. KB3033395 for Windows 2003 x64 is also faulty.

My XP SP3 system (x86) with the POS registry change is having no problem with the KB3033395 update. It installed fine, shows up in my update history on Windows Update and does not keep showing up again and again on Windows Update to be reinstalled. This makes 11 months of of POS 2009 updates (May 2014 patch Tuesday through March 2015 patch Tuesday) applied to my XP system with no problems (except of course for the well known font corruption from the Feb 2015 KB patch).

Sure :), but the link xper posted, unless I missed it, is specifically about KB3033929 and about it only. :unsure: and as such unrelated.

In case nobody noticed, Microsoft Update is working on NT 5.x again. I wonder how long it'll be before it breaks again.

Good news!

So, should I replace muweb.dll with the "right" version again, or leave it as it is with the earlier version which will hopefully be insurance against future failures?

Any security implications leaving the older version?

None at all. I'm keeping it in place, too. And keep a copy of v. 257 handy, just in case it becomes needed again, of course. :D
