This thread will list all the required patches to bring a Windows (2000/XP/2003) system up to date. It will be used as AutoPatcher's hotfix archive, but it could also serve as a reference list.

Performance of 1394 devices may decrease after you install Windows XP Service Pack 2

This problem occurs if you connect a 1394a or 1394b FireWire device to a 1394b port. This problem occurs because Windows XP SP2 changes 1394b ports to S100 speed when you upgrade.

Windows Installer 3.1 Redistributable

The Microsoft® Windows® Installer is an application installation and configuration service. WindowsInstaller-KB893803-x86.exe is the redistributable package for installing or upgrading Windows Installer.

For more information about the Windows Installer 3.1 redistributable, see KB Article 893803: Windows Installer 3.1 is now available.

Note for users of previous versions of the Windows Installer: The new Windows Installer redistributable follows a new naming convention that contains a knowledge base reference so it is easier to identify which version of the Windows Installer will be installed. The previous naming convention, INSTMSI.EXE, will no longer be used.

FIX: Updates for Windows Media Player 9 Series and for Windows Media Player 10

SYMPTOMS
This article describes the updates for the following issues that may occur in Microsoft Windows Media Player 9 Series and in Windows Media Player 10:
• Windows Media Player may ignore a fractional STARTTIME value and a fractional DURATION value for a non-English locale.
• A memory leak may occur when you play back DVR-MS files in Windows Media Player.
• Script commands may not start in Windows Media Player after a seeking operation.
• In certain situations, certain types of Windows Media Digital Rights Management (WMDRM)-protected content may cause Windows Media Player to redirect a user to a Web page to acquire a license without prior warning. This redirect may occur even if a user has cleared the Acquire licenses automatically for protected content check box on the Privacy tab of the Options dialog box.

CAUSE
The following list is a brief summary of the cause of each issue that is listed in the "Symptoms" section, respectively:
• The code in Windows Media Player that parses the .asx files relies on the English "." character as the separating decimal symbol and did not acknowledge any other separating decimal symbol.
• The Windows Media Player left the underlying filter graph in a paused state when it tried to shut down. This condition left references open and caused a leak.
• A flag within Windows Media Player was not correctly set. Therefore, the timers did not start when the script command occurred.
• The privacy option setting does not properly prevent WMDRM-protected content from opening a Web page without requesting permission.
