This tool born with the purpose of integrating hotfixes by the official way. In fact, this tool do the same as the Microsoft installer does, but with one exception; you can integrate hotfixes that are in conflict with others.
With the Microsoft installer (/integrate switch), if you try to integrate a new hotfix that contains the same file or files to patch that a previosly integrated hotfix, the install prompts you that it can't continue, this is by design. Ok, at that point, you can disintegrate the hotfix (with my Hotfix Disintegrate Tool or manually) and integrate the new one, but this only possible if the hotfix is a rollup package or a cumulative patch, but What happen when both hotfixes are necessary?, Do you remenber KB885250 and KB885835?, well here is the solution.
Perhaps can be a good tool for win2k users... in next release.
I made this tool for all of us. Enjoy.
