I downloaded the msxml4-KB936181-enu.exe tool, after fnally realizing it
would only run if I clicked on "RAN as Administrator"......it ran giving 3
options, Modify, Repair and Remove. Users reported using these tool wrote
they used removed, rebooted...and ran it again to re-install this Program.
If you ran this tool and it deleted the Update, why run it again to Install
Then they wrote "I then ran the Windows Update file for "Security Update for
Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 2". I am thinking that means
they simply ran Windows Update and it showed the Security Update as available
to Install (since it was deleted using the tool)...Correct?
I have also read at this same site some users have deleted all XML Core
Services Updates......and ran the KB936181....as it is a full up todate XML
packages .....(meaning it contains prior XML Updates so you end up with 1
update as opposed to several...comments?
