Issue addressed in this hotfix:

 

Issue: DTR 17974 Cannot download or refresh Japanese patch bulletin information with the shortcut bar closed.

 

Description: In the Japanese console, if the shortcut bar is closed, patch bulletin information cannot be downloaded or refreshed. An HTTP BAD REQUEST (400) error is received.

 

Resolution: With the shortcut bar closed, a garbage application name was being sent with the HTTP request. This has been corrected.

 

Issue: DTR 18275 April 2007 Japanese MSSecure.xml file no longer parsed by the console.

 

Description: MSSecure.xml files prior to April 10, 2007 had an error which WinINSTALL compensated for in Patch Management. Microsoft corrected the error in MSSecure.xml, but the code to compensate for the original error caused the file to no longer be parsed by the console for Japanese, French and German.

 

Resolution: The MSSecure.xml parsing code has been modified to deal with both the broken MSSecure.xml, and the corrected version.

 

Issue: DTR 18282 After previous Japanese bulletin download failures, bulletins display in English and not Japanese by default.

 

Description: Related to DTR 18275, if a previous download of MSSecure.xml fails, when the issue is resolved, the default language for the bulletins changes from its previous setting (e.g. Japanese) to English. It can be manually changed back via the UI, in which case the bulletins will be downloaded in the correct language.

 

Resolution: The MSSecure.xml parsing code has been modified to deal with both the broken MSSecure.xml, and the corrected version.

 

Issue: DTR 18283 The patch bulletins list may appear to be blank after bulletins are downloaded.

 

Description: After downloading bulletins, the bulletin list may not be properly refreshed, and appears blank.

 

Resolution: The display issue with refreshing the bulletin list view was corrected so that the list is properly re-drawn following a download.
