RyanVM's pack & Windows Update site

Post by guesswho » Sat Jan 03, 2009 11:21 pm

hi guys. i'm new here....just wanted to ask a question.

i integrated ryan vm's latest XP post-sp3 pack into my disc. everything worked very smoothly.

however, when the OS finishes installing and i visit windows update (using internet explorer) it tells me i need to install quite a few updates, some of which are listed as being included in RyanVM's pack.
for example, the pack lists the latest IE7 update KB960714 as being included, but windows update has it listed as a 'high priority' update that i should install

is this normal?
i thought that having integrated the pack when i visit windows update i would see that my system is fully up-to-date...

i would be glad if someone could shed some light on this matter.

thx in advance.

this pack only deals with ie6 updates. for ie7 you should ALSO integrate:

thx for the reply...i think i understand now.

it makes sense - a few of the other updates from windows update are related to windows media player as well....maybe those are also not included in the pack...

on this point:
Ryan's updatepack contains those updates' files for WMP9, so in order to update wmp10/WMP11 up-to-date, you should also searching for a wmp10/wmp11 addon with latest updates, or use nlite to integrate needed hotfixes.
