MORE INFORMATION

Known issues with this security update

  • The computer is not protected if you apply an incorrect version of this security update
    If you manually download and then apply an incorrect version of this security update, the computer will not be protected. For example, consider the following scenario:
    1. You previously upgraded the in-box DirectX component on a computer that is running Windows 2000 or Windows XP to a newer version of DirectX. For example, you upgraded the default version of DirectX version 7 in Windows 2000 to DirectX version 8 or 9.
    2. You manually download the update for DirectX version 7 from the Microsoft download center, and then you installed it on the affected computer.
    In this scenario, the update installs successfully. However, the vulnerable binary is not replaced. Therefore, the computer remains in a vulnerable condition.

    We recommend that you run the DirectX Diagnostic Tool to determine the version of DirectX that you are running to verify that you download the correct version of this security update. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

  • The Quartz.dll file appears as an unsigned binary
    Consider the following scenario:
    • You install this update on a computer that is running Microsoft Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4 and that has DirectX 7 or DirectX 8 installed.
    • You upgrade the system to DirectX 8 or DirectX 9.
    • You try to update the system again with this update.
    In this scenario, the Quartz.dll file is successfully updated to the secured version. However, the file may appear as an unsigned binary.

    To avoid this issue, follow these steps:
    1. Uninstall the update for the earlier version of DirectShow.
    2. Manually delete the following catalog file:
      %systemroot%\system32\catroot\{F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE}\KB971633.cat
    3. Upgrade to the newer version of DirectShow.
    4. Install the security update that is appropriate for the new version of DirectX.
