Watch out for KB912945 Issues

Post by PsiMoon314 » Tue Mar 14, 2006 3:51 pm

Hi Guys,

Just in case you were not aware, there seem to be "issues" with the MSHTML.DLL included with the 912945 hotfix.

According to DjLizard @ http://djlizard.net/2006/03/14/139, there are issues with Registration as follows:

"There is a bug in its DllRegisterServer or DllInstallServer which causes it to write many invalid entries into the registry.

Among other errors, it changes the path of mshtml.dll in about 30+ CLSID entries to "%_SYS_MOD_PATH%".

If you search your registry for %_SYS_MOD_PATH% and find several entries in HTML-related objects, you are affected.

You will also not be able to use System Restore (blank window), Internet Explorer (tries to download the root of a website instead of opening it), Help and Support (hit F1 after clicking on your desktop once - it tries to Open/Save "context.htm"), possibly Event Viewer, and probably many more things that use embedded HTML objects. It also seems to affect reinstalling of Service Pack 2".

The previous version of MSHTML.DLL (which is NOT affected) is 6.0.2900.2802.

6.0.2900.2838 is the version of mshtml.dll that IS affected.

If registering an important file like this, which is sometimes needed to fix IE / Shell issues can cause this problem then I would probably stay clear of this hotfix for now.

Kind Regards

Simon

Hi Ryan,

Cool, sorry to repeat problem reports on your message board.

I have only just come across this issue myself so I was not aware of how far or widespread the issues might be.

I thought of your update pack and assumed that you might need to register this .DLL or that it might cause issues.

It would seem I was correct, even if I was the 1001th person to report it :)

Kind Regards

Yeah, I was the first to report the problem on the MSFN boards a couple weeks ago.
