WES7 September 2011 ECE updates fail to import RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm posting this here since the Microsoft ECE website support staff has indicated that issues with specific KB articles should be addressed with the individual products.  The ECE maintains the files for distribution but doesn't support the content.

    Here are my two questions

    1. The September 2011 supplement updates release notes list 3 KB articles (KB2468871, KB2533523, KB2570791) yet the actual updates package contains 13 KB articles.  Why the discrepancy and will the release notes be updated?
    2. If I try to update my x64 SP1 Distribution Share with these September 2011 updates using the Image Configuration Editor, KB articles KB2607712 and KB2616676 fail to import.  Has anyone else had this problem?

    Thanks

  • Answer for your 2nd Question:

    I guess the KBs "2607712" and "2616676" are directly not applicable for WES7 and WES7-SP1. These two KBs are related to revoking of trust for few fraudulent digital certificates, and the corresponding KBs applicable to WES7 and WES7-SP1 that revoke the trust of these fraudulent digital certificates are planned to be released shortly.

  • Hi Shoebm:  Where did you read this?  When will the KB articles specific to WES7 and WES7-SP1 be released?

  • The KBs specific to WES7 were supposed to be released as part of November release and i believe they will be live soon.

    Answer for your 1st Question:

    The reason September-2011-supplement-updates release notes list 3 KB articles (KB2468871, KB2533523, KB2570791) yet the actual updates package contains 13 KB articles is that the actual package contains all the KBs applicable/not-applicable to WES7.

  • I have re-checked the November-Cumulative-Updates-Catalog(XLSX) file mentioned in Microsoft ECE partner website, and it looks like out of the 3 KBs mentioned in the September-2011-supplement-updates-release-notes only one (i.e. KB 2570791) is applicable to WES7. Anyways as mentioned in the above post, KBs specific to WES7 for revoking the trust of fraudulent digital certificates are supposed to be released as part of November release and they should be available live soon.

    Also the information related to the released WES7 updates is regularly updated in the below mentioned blog, so you can refer the below mentioned blog as well for all the WES7 latest update releases.
