Attempting to download hotfix 969166 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am attempting to download hotfix 969166 so that I can add ADGWS to our 2003 DC via the link provided in this originating article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/969166 which provides the download link: http://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/Downloads/DownloadDetails.aspx?DownloadID=20556 which (after signing in) returns page not found.

    As this is the first pre-requisite, I'm pretty well stuck as I can obtain (via email) the second hotfix 969429.

    Any assistance/guidance anyone can provide me will be much appreciated.

  • Hi Stuart,

    I can't open this link (To download this hotfix, visit the following Microsoft Web site:http://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/Downloads/DownloadDetails.aspx?DownloadID=20556) either. I think you can refer to the words above it:

    To resolve this problem immediately, contact Microsoft Customer Support Services to obtain the hotfix. For a complete list of Microsoft Customer Support Services telephone numbers and information about support costs, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

    Moreover, this issue isn't related with .NET Framework Setup and Servicing. I suggest you submit a issue on connect because we can see that we need to download the hotfix from connect.

  • Hi Anna,

    thanks for that.  I did try the online path and as:

    a) I don't know if the organisation I'm working for has either a support contract or software assurance or

    b) I'm not prepared to spend either their or my money UP FRONT on something that has already been fixed and should be available through published channels like the other hotfixes where the file/link is emailed directly to me.

    The issue I'm trying to resolve is more of an inconvenience than a necessity for what I am trying to do.  ie the more time I spend on it, the customer gets less value from me (and that includes going through online/phone support)

    I hope that submitting an issue on connect can be done by other methods, because as I mentioned earlier, it's not in either my clients' nor my interest to pursue this any further.  Please consider this case closed.

    Stuart
