    This is a 2000 Professional box. Someone please provide some feedback. I'm
    pulling my hair out here.

    Hi Matt,
    hoping that this rollup would solve the "Code Behind" problem and the
    suspected KB896727, I had installed Update Rollup 1 v2, dated 13 sept 2005,
    with no problem.

    The lines that you had snipped say this here :

    62.931: Num Ticks for Copying files : 31576
    63.672: Num Ticks for Reg update and deleting 0 size files : 751
    63.672: Starting process: C:\WINNT\system32\Regsvr32.exe /s

    So, my Registry update is OK. And the installation is OK.

    But the failure to deliver CAB files still persists :((

  4. Why do you say "snipped"? His extract is showing a permissions
    problem. Does yours show you that too?

    In fact, because of the /s switch you can't say anything about
    the registration of winhttp.dll <eg>

    Is this a symptom you have described elsewhere?

    no, mine did not, that is exactly what I meant
    that is what my logfile says, I did not put the /s switch there myself
    yes, and other people did as well, all relating to the failure to request a
    'code behind' cab file from the server :

    "Problem with KB896727 update", starting 8/17/2005
    "Web Application no longer works after applying KB903235", starting

    and in newsgroup internet.explorer.java :
    "IE6/Failure Downloading Cab File", starting 8/29/2005
    "Bug in IE with KB896727", starting 8/17/2005
    "cab file delivery failing recently", starting 8/16/2005

    I got a new group of users coming in in less then 2 weeks, so this is really
    getting me anxious.

  6. Oh. I see what you're getting at. You pattern-matched on that line
    and are reporting the following differences where he had a permissions

    Perhaps the point was too subtle. The /s switch stands for "silent".
    That means it could be failing and there would be no feedback to the user.
    Hence I thought that you could not make any conclusions about "the registration
    of winhttp.dll" from that log entry. I see now that you weren't necessarily
    including that line into consideration for your assertion. Perhaps your
    point would have been clearer if you had instead referred to "Reg update".

    In case it matters have you tried performing the same regsvr32 command
    without the /s switch manually? That would be better proof I think that
    winhttp.dll was working Ok.

    Ok. Thanks. I'll review those later and reply to you in the first
    (mart's thread.)

    Oh. I see what you're getting at. You pattern-matched on that line
    you are right.
    after you mentioned it, I registered it without the /s switch, succesfully.
    But problem persists.

    yes please please.
