Comments
  • it'll be nice to categorize the hot fixes into two main cat. : XP / Vista

    Thank you.

  • Thanks for listening to feedback that the current Technet "most recent KB articles" (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-gb/default.aspx)

    was unsuitable for most RSS readers.

    I agree with Basem that grouping/categorization might be nice, albeit that the description does tend to state what OS if affected.

    P.S. KB945322 does not seem to be publically available

  • Thanks for this service. Since the KB advanced search was changed to the worse ( you can not search for timeframes anymore ) I welcome this.

    Keep it up!

  • Thanks!

    I like to know what hotfixes are released as this gives me an indication what problems could be resolved.

    Unfortunately you are on your own to choose if you would install a hotfix to prevent a possible problem in the future.

    For example some hotfixes are classified as 'recommended' as stated in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/935640/ for this particular configuration. This gives me the 'confidence' that these hotfixes are ok.

    I hope it is possible that Microsoft can 'recommend' other hotfixes for other products.

    Other question, updates available without Microsoft request like http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943295/ are suitable for preventive installation generally speaking?

    Regards,

    Arian!

  • This site is great.... but i only have one feature request.... when can we get hotfixes put up on to Microsoft Update Catalogue so we can deploy them via WSUS... ????

  • Thanks all the comments above, I do not suppose I can get so many comments in such a few days originally.

    As suggested, in the near feature, I will categorize the KB article list in details. Hope it can help you.

    Due to the limitation of the platform and our working style, there may be some problem at very beginning. Pardon me.

    By the way, the list for other Microsoft products will come soon. :-)

  • Yes, please categorize the list. And thank you guys for saving our time.

  • Btw, does your team also cover Office, .NET Framework and all other Windows component hotfixes (such as MSXML) as it is not listed in your initial introduction? I would like to see a list of all/cumulative/superceeding hotfixes for .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 and 1.0 SP3, since they are not receiving further service packs.

  • KB 945322 does not appear to be available???

  • To GeeB

    Currently, the KB 945322 requires special  confidentiality agreement. So ...

    Next, I will remove this kind of KB articles. Or do you want I keep it in the list?

  • We're a VL customer with access to the Premier content and an NDA, but it isn't viewable there either. I guess there is another level we don't have

    I think they can be kept on the list, but some kind of moniker to it to note access level would at least help us know if we can access it or not.

    ex.

    945322 [Premier access only]

    something like that?

  • Please keep also hotfixes not publicly available on the list. What's the problem with submitting a hotfix-request to MS? The respective KB-articles contain a link to request the mentioned hotfix easily.

  • To GeeB,

    Thanks for the feedback! I will do as you suggested in the future post.

    to Waudiz,

    Currently, we have a project named hot-fix online submitting to make the user submits a request more easily. In some KB articles that has this feature, you may notice a comments like:

    ================================

    To resolve this problem, submit a request to Microsoft Online Customer Services to obtain the hotfix. To submit an online request to obtain the hotfix, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

    http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=6294451 ================================

    Through the link, end users can submit the request to us and we will provide a link to the fix to users througth email.
