.o0 second thoughts I am sure I have seen this before!
Don't you get the .v5 update with SP2 of XP anyway?
Yeah I believe SP2 moved you from v4 to v5 of windows update.
It sure did. Hard deadline for all users to SP2 is approaching
calling it update.microsoft.com made it inevitable anyway really.
Via the beta tester section you can also access v5a.
I know a lot of the savvy's here may have known it, reasons for posting it was for non sp2 users and also some at the site I quoted it from were shocked it existed, which I found very odd indeed. :s Maybe I am thinking I might get the same response.
who here has updated to using the v5a microsoft update?
for those who have, are you experiencing problems loading web pages after the updates?
I tried it, no problems, but, to be safe I deleted windows partition and restored a back-up image.
In IE or on general? I use firefox and its all good over here. I didn't see any problems yet, it ran its little update check and everything is fine
Nicely done, Lee. Thanks for the heads up. I've been waiting for this.
It's a great idea to integrate all the MS update services into a single one. I usually end up updating Windows the day the updates are out, but I don't check OfficeUpdate as often. The new system should be much more convenient.
I think the problem with integrating OfficeUpdate is that about 20% of the updates require the CD to be installed.
