I'm creating a package to install this KB961118 fix for .Net 3.5 with SP1. It appears to only replace ntprint.cat with a newer version. I can't find a way to uninstall it. Are these updates meant to be removed? I suppose as a Backout Plan, I could simply copy the current one to a temp location and then copy it back on uninstall. But I was wondering if anyone knew if this fix had an uninstall.

Why are you creating a package for a hotfix? These are meant to be installed by Windows Update/WSUS as, generally speaking, they require special handling due to the nature of the files they replace.

As to whether it can be uninstalled, again, generally speaking, uninstallable hotfixes will have a folder called 'spuninst' containing 'spuninst.exe' and the registry's 'Uninstall' branch for the hotfix (in this case HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\KB961118) will NOT be marked as a system component.

That worked perfectly, thanks!
Windows Update or WSUS are not options for me. So I make a WiseScript EXE that installs the hotfixes.
Thanks again.
