Hi Guys,
Have any of you seen this on http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS04-027.mspx. its a bloody nightmare. A lot of work to be done, any ideas on how to quickly do it. It basically affects everything so i think i'll have to create an msi for each package to search for each version, if its there deploy patch, if not abort patch.

It's the . (full stop) on the end of it causing the error.

I take it your talking about MS04-028.

We us Altiris to deploy OS / IE patches and we’re thinking about having to manually run Office update to get the Office patches.

I'm interested in your approach using an msi -

Looks like you’re talking about creating an MSI for each affected application. This MSI would determine if the client is affected and then it would install the patch if needed?

Would be really cool if you could get all the updates into one MSI, then the MSI could determine what patches to install based on what the client has on the PC.

If we created such an MSI we could use Altiris to push it out to our clients…

Please let me know if you’re successful in creating this MIS...

What I've done is just created an msi based on the security update .exe and put a launch condition in for XP - (VersionNT=501), server 2003(VersionNT=502).Then for the Visio, Frontpage, etc .exe's I did a custom action based on exes installed with the product, with the command line -q:a -r:n, Synchronous(Ignores exit code), immediate execution, always execute. The Install Exec Sequence is After Scheduled Reboot, and the condition Not Installed. They basically check for the existance of the main exe (eg. Visio.exe) in the System search under its path [programFilesFolder]Microsoft Office\Visio 10 and if so install the update.
Dont know about putting it all into one msi. Good Luck!
