Do not know what I did but looks like I needed this update as I had installed the original KB904706 in October.

Thanks again! Grin

Glenn, You Only Need It If the Quartz.dll File Is Wrong

Thanks Grif! This is all very confusing...

In reply to: Glenn, You Only Need It If the Quartz.dll File Is Wrong

Need it or not I think I have it. Since I have DirectX 9.0c and running Win XP with SP-2, it was my reading of the following that I needed the update specified for those circumstances... so I downloaded and installed.


Thanks for your help... its difficult to really know what is needed anymore. Sad

Glenn, XP SP2 Isn't One Of The Problems...

In reply to: Thanks Grif! This is all very confusing...

...and as such you probably didn't need to reinstall the patch..If you read the first answer under the "Frequently Asked Questions" section, you'll note that only W2000 SP4, Windows XP SP1, and Windows 2003 had issues and even then, only when certain circumstances applie.

Still, reapplying the patch won't hurt anything.

Hope this helps.

No longer important since I now have it installed..

In reply to: Glenn, XP SP2 Isn't One Of The Problems...

But this is where I took my cue that it was needed in MS05-050:

"Affected Software:

Microsoft DirectX 8.1 on Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1 and Microsoft DirectX 9.0c on Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 2 ? Download the update"

Sorry I did not read the FAQ's

Thanks and it did help!

Glenn check the version of Quartz.dll

In reply to: Thanks Grif! This is all very confusing...

You mentioned that you have DirectX 9.0c in your Windows XP Service Pack 2. You must have v6.5.2600.2749 for Quartz.dll

Donna, now resolved... I think!

In reply to: Glenn check the version of Quartz.dll

Since I have installed the update it should have taken care of it. Note the above reply to Grif to see why I installed the update... way I read it the update was for DirectX 9.0c used with Win XP SP-2 using the download link they furnished under those criteria.

Thanks for your help.

Glad to know you installed it

In reply to: Donna, now resolved... I think!

because "This security update replaces a prior security update."

Great work Glenn!
