I battled with that too. With Windows XP it seems to only take you to a website that tells you to run Windows & Office Updates.

The long and the short of it is, it's a registry entry. You don't need to install or "slipstream" this file.

Somewhere in your Registry Tweaks .reg file, you need to put...

;-----  tell windows I've already run the GDI+ detection tool (gdidettool.exe)
;-----  in references to http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=873374
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\GdiDetectionTool]
"GDITool"=dword:00000001

Of course add "Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00" to the top if this is your first registry tweaking durring unattended install.

I discovered this using a registry compare program. (there are several referenced in the forums). Well The above tweak is probably also, but I felt like answering.

Also I included as a default bookmark in my

winnt.sif file:

[FavoritesEx]
Title1 = "Microsoft GDI+ Detection Tool - September 14, 2004 - KB873374.url"
URL1   = "http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=873374"

To help reference the file since it doesn't install and the first time it's run it won't showup as a critical update again. note: (I found the quotes necessary or my winnt.sif file would bomb.)

It is possible to install this update silently. This is how i did it:

1. Extract the hotfix

2. Open gdidet.xml with notepad.

3 Change all "PROMPT" an "YESNOPROMPT" in "NOPROMPT"

4. save the changes

5. Now we need to make an IExpress package

Click Here for information about making an IExpress package

If you follow this guide above, be sure to use the INF file in the "Install Program To Launch" phase.

6. Save this package as KB873374.exe and put in in your update folder.

7. Add this hotfix to svcpack.inf, no switches requierd

The hotfix will now be silently installed

Good Luck!!

Alex

haha that is a really good question LoL

technically it advices about a big (potential) flaw that let the "malicious" user to run code on most of m$ components. the thing is that it just leave you in a new page (?)

couldn't be more helpful if WU directly detected the programs affected and redirect/installs the necessary patches? (correct me if necessary :P )

Does this update helped anyone in anyway?

Let me know...
