Are hotfixes downloadable / available somewhere other than calling Microsoft?
Posted on 2006-04-20
A client had a problem with his win server 2003 and looking up the issue on eventid.net pointed me to a hotfix on Microsoft's website. They say there's a hotfix and you can call in for it... but there may be charges that may be waived, etc. Wny not just post the fix somewhere to save people from the time, bother and potential cost to call / contact microsoft to get the patch? It's not like it's a new issue they don't know about / don't know a possible fix. Sure, you might F___ up your machine, but it's already F___ed up so you want it to get back up quick. and peole that know to search their KB are (should be) smart enough to know if the article really describes the problem / that fix is worth a try?
or are there webpages out there that accumulate hotfixes that people have gotten so the next person can get it quicker than dealing with MSFT?? like dll-files.com, etc.???
