I'm asking what was the earliest date this hotfix KB 2543241 was available for download?  The article review date is 26Apr2011.  The file powerpnt.exe modified date is 20Apr2011 that's listed in the article.

    It's hard to say. I find the various dates on the MS KBs to be very confusing and sometimes even misleading.

    Westez--It seems to have gone through several revisions.  The last was dated April 26.
    The data you have is correct.  So an earlier version could have been available on April 20, but new files are not made available instantaneously.

    Westez--There is also a reference
    which suggests the latest revision was available April 24.

    The auto update feature can update objects 1 - 15days earliers then the release of the actual package to the pubilc for public downloading so there is no way of telling exactly when the earliest date relase was for that KB
