    MS Security Update 814078 (all)

    Many people have been having problems with this new update. There are many confusing issues about it. First off, there are several different versions of the update: JScript Security Update.

    If we ignore the different versions because of different Operating Systems -- and this is acceptable because the differences are ONLY due to registry changes -- we are left with three different versions of the JScript update: 5.1, 5.5, and 5.6.

    Now, exactly which update you need is not entirely clear. Windows Update seems to offer people different versions based on either their version of IE or their version of Windows Script Host. It is not clear HOW it decides which update version to offer you. Many people seem to be offered inconsistent versions.

    Furthermore, many people have had problems with Windows Update not recognizing that they are already 'updated'. One person updated to the 5.6 version -- because that was what was first offered. Then, upon returning to Windows Update, it now wanted the user to install the 5.1 version! Obviously, this does not make sense.

    If you have NOT installed this update, please let me know the following:

    1) Your version of IE
    2) You version of Windows Script Host (check the version number of "wscript.exe").
    3) The version of the JScript update that Windows Update offers you.

    THANKS in advance.

    R2--
    Glad you mentioned this. I got notification of the update 1-2 weeks ago. Tried to download X3--just wouldn't take it. Regret I didn't save the refusal box. Tried again and did. How are you quickly checking version of WSH? Typing wscript.exe ver in the run box and variations. Tried wscript.exe at command line. Did get box below up--no version. Tried csript.exe at command line and got the version 5.6.

    Also--and I am not for a moment trying to mini-hijack or veer the thread over, but the reason I wanted to verify the version was to confirm I had it for security protection because when I went to Win Update to check to "View Installation History" nothing showed. 3 annoyances with Winupdate I see all the time and Tim started a recent thread on: are 1) You confirm you have the update but it won't show in history. Granted I haven't rebooted and that might be the problem here but I wasn't prompted to reboot and you aren't on many updates. 2) I do the update from the Security bulletin and still get notification that particular update is available after I have the update in and it does show on history. 3) You search for updates knowing that one is available and WU says you don't need anything (missing notifying you of the update). That's my reason for getting the security bulletin--because I don't trust WU to get them all--and it doesn't. I know the SB predate WU offering it but I'm talking about after it should.

    Those are all valid points. The "Installation History" really should be entitled "Windows Update History" -- since it ONLY tells you about updates you received directly from Windows Update. It no longer lists the "installed updates" that you may have downloaded and installed later.

    Even though I installed the 5.6 update from the bulletin, WU even tells me that I need to install the 5.1 version! Go figure...

    To check the version, right-click on the file and select Properties.

    Thanks, Bruce. MS seems to have fixed part of the problem -- now I am not offered the 5.1 version.

    If you have WSH 5.6, then the 814078 update should take your jscript.dll file from 5.6.0.6626 to 5.6.0.8513. Otherwise, all other piece of WSH are left unchanged.

    Re: MS Security Update 814078 (all)

    d'oh! Ever since I took that update I have been unable to connect to my bank online.
    All I ever get when I log in is "Sorry, this page is not secure." Using XP Pro, SP1 and IE6 sp1.
    I can connect just fine from work using IE 5.5. Obviously I haven't gotten around this yet, and I'm not sure
    if I want to run around switching IE settings just to see what happens. Has anyone else had a similare experience after this update?
