The Ntvdwd.dll files that are included in the MS04-032 security update for Windows XP and for Windows XP SP1 have higher version numbers than the version numbers of the Ntvdmd.dll files that are included in Windows XP, in Windows XP SP1, and in Windows XP SP2.

RESOLUTION

No action is required to resolve this issue. The Ntvdmd.dll files that are included in the MS04-032 security update for Windows XP and for Windows XP SP1 are the same files as the Ntvdmd.dll files that are included in Windows XP, in Windows XP SP1, and in Windows XP SP2. The only difference is the higher version numbers of the files in the security update.
