KB918005 vs KB924692

Post by DeaDruiD » Wed Nov 29, 2006 12:26 pm

I'm kinda confused - KB918005-v4 contains newer files (5.1.2600.3020, 06/10/23) than the KB924692 hotfix it was supposed to be replaced with (5.1.2600.2993, 06/09/11). Seems like KB918005's article wasn't updated to reflect the last version of the hotfix.

Probably the wrong thread/forum, sorry about that.

Well, it wouldn't be the first time that happened.

I'm guessing there was a regression in the KB924692 update. Hopefully KB918005-v4 includes the fix in KB924692. :)

yes, M$ always update its knowledge base too late..

and.... on 12/19, M$ released 2 hotfixes, KB896256(V4) & KB924441(V2).
KB896256 contains 5 files of a version of 5.1.2600.3023
KB924441 contains 4 files exsiting in KB 896256 of a version of 5.1.2600.3014
means KB924441 can be replaced by KB896256 completely.

isn't it very funny?????????? :D

Just extract the KB's on your HD and compare them yourself instead of relying on what MS wrote on the KB pages.

KB924441 was released before 12/19... ms got the date wrong. If it was released on 12/19, it wouldn't be in 2.1.5...

I haven't seen KB924441-V2 anywhere, so I guess you mean the plain KB924441...

The new version of KB896256 was probably released after 2.1.5, which is probably the reason v3 is still included in 2.1.5

I've noted that in some cases, though not necessarily reliable events, that KB896256 has actually caused more problems that it's worth if your NOT engaged in using any OverclockingAI, Throttling Control, etc.

While I have a dual-core and a core-duo machines, I don't rely adaptive overclocking or thermal performance throttling (as I'm rarely pushing the systems to such extremes to require those "enhancements") so I'm sort of anxious on relying on their presence.
