Hi all,

This Blog Post lists the hotfixes that are currently available for users who have installed the Offline Files Feature on Windows 8 and Windows 7-based computers.

From my experience, most of the Described Problems in over 90% of the posts are fixed with Hotfixes from the following KB Articles.

Also please read the KB Articles in order to not miss any Registry Settings which are possibly needed or check for Script Samples.

The mentioned Binary's are only the important ones, please see also the complete List of Binary's listed in the KB Articles in order to see the differences, if you see that for example in 2 different Articles have the same binary's, you should install both because of the other in those Fixes included Components.

If the Problem still appears after you installed these fixes, than  go ahead with troubleshooting or involve Microsoft support to help you!

  

Additional:

  • It seems that KB2610379 is not necessary for Cscobj.dll, because KB2715922 (for Profprov.dll) includes the same version of Cscobj.dll (6.1.7601.21864). KB2610379 also includes Cscapi.dll, Cscdll.dll, Cscsvc.dll, and Shell32.dll, but these all have newer versions in the other KB articles in this list.

  • @Taylorbox:  I just updated the Article with an explanation why you should install all the Fixes. I hope that makes it more understandable.
