Get a hotfix -- without having to call MS...

  • Comments 15

In this new age of the internet...

You now can obtain a hotfix without having to interact with a single soul ( no phone calls etc.. )  Easy and convenient.

Take for example my previous post for the netlogon DCR - 928576  which doesnt even have a public article yet.  Try it...

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;928576  

It errors out - no such article.

But - thanks to the Big Brainers ( seriously ) who think about our customers and really do care about their experience  .. you can now simply go to thisURL and download most any fix

https://support.microsoft.com/contactus2/emailcontact.aspx?scid=sw;en;1410&WS=hotfix

You will get a form mail in response, and in it will be a link to the http site you can download the fix from.

Man -- this makes life SOOOO much easier for a lot of folks.

Thanks!

  • If your company doesn't enjoy a Microsoft Premier Support agreement, the process of obtaining a hotfix can be time consuming and painful. Nothing worse than being able to see the hotfix, but having to undergo the hours of pain to get it on the phone.

I had to spend a lot of time to look for the latest one and ever after installing the same i figure out that we till have another updated hotfix available.

    So do we have any sort of single link to search for the updated hotfix binaries available on Microsoft Site.
