Microsoft Update

50 posts in this topic

Anyone know about this site? http://windowsupdate.62nds.com/

Basically Windows Update in Firefox, at least. It guess it installs a couple .dll files into the plugins folder. Anyone know if its safe? Haven't done much research but I have used it. It just scans your registry, sends you the .exe updates and silently installs them.

Very cool imo just not sure of the security risks in those files you must install. What do you think?

Please stick to the topic! This is Microsoft Update unattended intregation, not WU in Firefox. I suggest you start a new topic on the relevant board :)

[interesting to know tho, but for another discussion I think :D - post it in the wondows xp board and remove the content from your post here (or change it into a link to the other topic :D]

Cheers

Nath.

Most likely you need to install Windows Installer 3.1 (v2)

as mentioned in this POST here

@raduking: I actually got exactly the same error, but I thought this was an error at the webserver/site, cause after quite a few tries it suddenly worked... Anyone got any idea?

I install both Win installer 3,1 v2 and MU with /SiLeNt switches.

is there something we can do ?

I Iam wondering this too. I'm getting the updates installed all right, but MU doesn't install. I tried packaging up the install using a repackager, but it didn't work.
