Looks like Microsoft Support has finally wised up and made it easier to obtain those pesky hotfixes that you used to have to contact Microsoft for specifically.

While not completely publicly available, all that is needed is to fill out this form which sends an email back to you with a link to the requested hotfix.

not for the whole thing.. but you can get an updated vista kernel through KB 939720 which includes the file Ntoskrnl.exe

I've used the site a few times now. The last of which took about two hours.

OK so it took near three hours, but it provided a patch in every language for every flavor of Windows!

Awesomeness!

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!
