    An unexpected update for Adobe Flash Player


    PATCH WATCH



    An unexpected update for Adobe Flash Player


    By Susan Bradley

    Perhaps it's the calm before the Windows 10 storm, but June proved to be a relatively quiet patching month. This month's leftover updating issues include an important out-of-band Adobe Flash fix and a lingering kernel patch.

    The full text of this column is posted at windowssecrets.com/patch-watch/an-unexpected-update-for-adobe-flash-player/ (opens in a new window/tab).

    Seems you need to close Firefox to install 18.0.0.194. I didn't on one of mine and had to close FF, un-install Flash and re-install before FF reported the correct version.

    cheers, Paul

    Thanks for the further advice, Susan.

    Does anyone have any explanation for the optional update KB3064209 which is stated to be for Intel processors being offered to me on both my computers including the one with an AMD processor? There have been problems reported on this update so I'm leaving well alone at the moment on both machines. The problems are mentioned here:-

    This update improves the reliability of systems that use certain Intel processors. This update also fixes some issues that could cause the operating system to function incorrectly.

    Indeed, but I'd like to know what those issues are (given that my operating system works just fine) before installing an update that is primarily aimed at a processor I don't have. As always with MS, there's inadequate information on which to base a decision about installing the update. Good luck to Windows 10 users when they no longer get to make the decision and have all updates installed regardless!

    Exclamation WindowsUpdate 800F0244 OR WindowsUpdate dt000

    Hi Folks,

    Some of us are getting the following offered in MS WU:

    Download size: 61.7 MB

    You may need to restart your computer for this update to take effect.

    Update type: Optional

    This driver was provided by Intel Corporation for support of Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000

    More information:
    http://sysdev.microsoft.com/support/default.aspx

    Help and Support:
    http://support.microsoft.com/select/?target=hub


    And getting the following error:

    WindowsUpdate 800F0244 OR WindowsUpdate dt000

    From MS Communty:

    SPAPI_E_SIGNATURE_OSATTRIBUTE_MISMATCH
    0x800F0244
    The software was tested for compliance with Windows Logo requirements on a different version of Windows, and may not be compatible with this version.

    I have:

    Intel DH67BL
    Intel H67 (Cougar Point) [B3]
    Intel HD Graphics 3000

    Installation status: Failed

    Error details: Code 800F0244

    Update type: Important

    This driver was provided by Intel Corporation for support of Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000

    More information:
    http://sysdev.microsoft.com/support/default.aspx

    Help and Support:
    http://support.microsoft.com/select/?target=hub


    At this point I am simply HIDING the update as it appears to be inappropriate for me on W 8.1 at least.
    MAYBE it is for W 10 which I am Previewing on a different partition.

    Best Regards,

    Crysta

    WU is offering you a driver for your display adapter that can only be updated through your computer's manufacturer (OEM).

    Had that happen recently with a Toshiba laptop.

    Yeah. I have all Intel processors but I still wanted to know which ones the issues are with. Couldn't find anything in the more info link. Just more cubicle-rat-speak if you ask me. Whoever wrote it was probably clueless so s/he just made it vague and hoped nobody would notice.

    Crysta, hide it

    You can safely update the graphics driver directly from Intel should you find the need to.

    The only OEM driver issues come with notebook/mobile type computers with dual graphics - they should only be updated with the driver versions from the OEM concerned.

    Actually, there is a KB article that describes what 3064209 is for...

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3064209

    There are prerequisites for this update.

    Please enlighten us as to how that blurb in any way "describes the issues corrected".

    I have AMD on both my Tosh laptops but because you can also get them with Intel processors, the OEM install also provisions for Intel and there is an Intel folder in my registry.

    I accepted that Intel update fully expecting to get the message that it wasn't needed, but it installed without any problems - so I guess it's like all of the other problematic WUs where they can affect some machines but not others.

    If it's install does cause booting problems and while I know this works in Win 7, after switching on pressing the Shift key five times will give you access to the Action Centre where you can type Restore in the top right search box and that will give you a number of restore options.

    Look again...

    I modified the original to say "Actually, there is a KB article that describes what 3064209 is for..."

    Nice try, though.

    Same link, same blurb, please explain your conclusions that there is some description here that is of any use in explaining what it is for.

    That can only be because you've copied wscui.cpl to sethc.exe for a non-standard function. Shift key five times normally turns on Sticky Keys.
