Microsoft Update, asks for activex even though added cab to HFCABS
Posted 04 December 2006 - 05:50 AM
It appears the files within this cab are present in SOURCESS however when I go to the Microsoft update website it asks to install activex controls...
I've also added WindowsUpdate20.exe, Package Installer 184.108.40.206 , windows update cab (IUCTL.cab) and the office update cab (OPUC4.cab).
Have I missed something else?

in the HFCABS folder
Super-Magician's selfextracting exe (Datastore.exe) in the HFSVCPACK folder
Windows update works fine, but microsoft update asks for activex controls.
Should also note, I use nLite to slipstream IE7
I've tested this without slipstreaming IE7 and Microsoft Update worked.
So I'm assuming IE7 requires different controls maybe?

Any ideas now?

Open WindowsUpdate.log (not Windows Update.log) from the WINDOWS folder in Notepad and look for a "Setup: Checking whether self-update is required" header. Below that, you should see a bunch of files being referred to and some details on whether they need to be updated or not. Is everything OK there?

2006-12-07 17:14:07 668 394 Setup Update required for C:\WINDOWS\system32\mucltui.dll: target version = 0.0.0.0, required version = 220.127.116.119
Only file that comes up as missing.

I suppose it's the MU equivalent of wucltui.dll.

Tried Microsoft Update and it's still requiring the ActiveX controls...
Ran out of ideas now!

Will report back my findings as I soon as I get a chance!

I still don't have mucltui.dll in system32 after running Microsoft Update, though; neither on Win2K (normal system) nor on WinXP (virtual machine).
It could be as simple as this:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Services] "DefaultService"="7971f918-a847-4430-9279-4a52d1efe18d" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Services\7971f918-a847-4430-9279-4a52d1efe18d] "AuthorizationCab"="muauth.cab"
I'll test this tomorrow when I'm more awake...

I've deleted those keys, and tried Microsoft update...
Didnt ask for active x.
Gonna add it to my reg file and run a test install, will report back after.

However I've found out if you change add this key to the following, it stops asking to install activex...
Change it to 00000000 to see it ask for the activex controls, and 00000004 for it to not ask.
Going to test this on an fresh install...

Maybe HFSLIP could add this reg tweak when integrating/slipstreaming IE7?
