OOPSIE, the_guy. Microsoft has just changed their mind. They will NOT re-release MS06-042 for Win2k SP4/WinXP SP1 today August 22 as they've found new problems with it. See MS security bulletin MS06-042 now and look in the "Caveats" section:

I have recently tested unofficial HLINK.DLL KB920670 (Q920670.exe) and MSXML3.DLL KB909363 (Q909363.exe) patches for Win98/ME/NT4. They do NOT work as they ask for those files and can not find them.

I found flaws in the 920670.inf and kb909363.inf files. [sourceDiskNames] should be changed to [sourceDisksNames] in both of those INF files (yup, add the "s" after Disk). Make the change and the unofficial patches will work.

also the direct download link to Frontpage 2000 Server extensions listed on MDGx's IE page:

ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/products/frontpag...e2k_x86_eng.exe

this version is 4.0.2.4317! the same one from the MS Windows Update site:

http://download.windowsupdate.com/msdownlo...7AA803C071A.exe

Both FPSE 2k downloads are exactly the same whether or not it is download from MS FTP or MS WU site.

Frontpage 2000 Server Extensions version 4.0.2.5526 (v1.3) is NOT available anymore at ANY Microsoft site whether HTTP or FTP.

FPSE 2k version 4.0.2.5526 can be downloaded here:

http://www.download.com/Frontpage-2000-Ser...4-10106086.html

Thanks for noticing.

When I ran FPSE2K from MS ftp site, the opening screen said:

This is Installation Wizard for Front Page 2000 SR-1.1 Server Extensions...
When I ran FPSE2K from MS WU site, I got this message:
This is Installation Wizard for Front Page 2000 SR-1.2 Server Extensions...
But after installation, both had the same version build for all files.

I'll keep the WU link, because displays the correct version.

Thanks for the links.

I have to giggle.

I called the unofficial Win9x KB918899 with new urlmon.dll v2 : IE6.0sp1-KB918899-v2-x86-ENU.exe

and MS called the official 2k/XP fix : IE6.0sp1-KB918899-Windows-2000-XP-v2-x86-ENU.exe .

Its just ironic that they did also name it v2 and so nearly the same name . :lol:

No surprise, Microsoft uses always the same convention, all corrected fixes were v2:

WindowsXP-KB911280-v2-x86-ENU.exe

WindowsXP-KB908531-v2-x86-ENU.exe

WindowsMedia10-KB911565-v2-x86-ENU.exe

WindowsXP-KB900485-v2-x86-ENU.exe

WindowsXP-KB889527-v3-x86-ENU.exe

WindowsInstaller-KB893803-v2-x86.exe

WindowsXP-KB319740-v5-x86-ENU.exe

So

IE6.0sp1-KB918899-Windows-2000-XP-x86-ENU.exe is the first release

IE6.0sp1-KB918899-Windows-2000-XP-v2-x86-ENU.exe is the second release

IE6.0sp1-KB918899-Windows-2000-XP-v3-x86-ENU.exe would be the third release

etc.

It was changed with Windows Vista, here even the first version has v1 in the filename:

Windows6.0-KB918899-v1-x86-EN-US.MSU

Ohh thx for enlightenment.

I think I only knew it from Windows update where websites are called e.g:

v3.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/

v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/

Maybe I should join MS because I even use same file names. :D

v3.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/

v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/

V3 Windows Update site only works for Win95, winxpi. V4 Windows Update site works only for Win98/ME. I visited the WU sites with different versions of Windows to prove that.

I have recently tested unofficial HLINK.DLL KB920670 (Q920670.exe) and MSXML3.DLL KB909363 (Q909363.exe) patches for Win98/ME/NT4. They do NOT work as they ask for those files and can not find them.

I found flaws in the 920670.inf and kb909363.inf files. [sourceDiskNames] should be changed to [sourceDisksNames] in both of those INF files (yup, add the "s" after Disk). Make the change and the unofficial patches will work.

you did not fix the unofficial HLINK.DLL [Q920670.EXE] and unofficial MSXML3.DLL [Q909363.EXE] patches, MDGx. they still do not work. please make these corrections and repost the patches.

909363 is replaced by 919587, and I will send MDGx an unofficial patch for that in the next few days.

What problem are you having with 920670 erpdude?

Direct download [163 KB, English]:

Please try again see if it works ok.

I'll wait about Q909363 until the_gui sends me the newer Q919587 update, and then I'll replace the buggy one with the new one.

Thanks.

winxpi:

I got the source for IE918899 v2.

I'll try to fix it, and if I do, I'll post it here.

Thanks a bunch.

HLINK.DLL file from unofficial 920670 does NOT install and asks for the file. I already found the problem with U920670's INF file and sent a revised one to MDGx a few days ago and Q920670.exe file should work now.

UPDATED · 8-29-2006

Please see the top of this topic for most recent updates.

______________________________

Updated:

- Win98SE KERNEL32.DLL patch for 2-4 GB files with proper fixed API.

- WinME KERNEL32.DLL patch for 2-4 GB files with proper fixed API.

- Revised IE918899.EXE v2 = now installs properly.

- Buggy Q250876.EXE NWPP32.DLL patch step-by-step install guidelines.

- Q920670.EXE HLINK.DLL patch corrected INF to install properly.

all we need now is a "Win98 FE kernel32.dll fix" for 2-4GB file copying. I'd be outraged if there isn't one.

To get the benefit of the 923762 fix included in 918899 V2, install the RTMQFE edition (NOT the RTMGDR variety) to update the URLMON.DLL file to the one mentioned in MS article 923762.

be sure to add the QFEInstalled DWORD registry with a value of 1 under the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer" key in Regedit before using IE918899.exe

@erpdude8: Both the gdr and qfe versions of 918899v2 include the fix.

Original fix:

GDR: 6.0.2800.1565

QFE: 6.0.2800.1566

923762/Revised fix:

GDR: 6.0.2800.1567

QFE: 6.0.2800.1568

MS made a typo in the security bulletin.
