    Hi Guys

    Two quick questions for you (I hope). Firstly, my new WSUS install has told
    me that I have one update yet to be approved, however I cannot find it. If I
    look at all updates with "any" approval status I find this update for

    Update Rollup for Exchange 2000 Server (KB870540) - with a status of

    So question 1 is, what is "bundled"? The WSUS help does not mention it, nor
    can I find it in this newsgroup.

    I'm assuming that this is the "missing" update as there is nothing else
    which is not set to "Install" or "Declined".

    Question 2 is simpler, why are foreign language updates being downloaded
    when I have expressly configured the server for Default Locale (English)
    only? Every time I look I find either French updates for Office and Project,
    and Slovenian updates for WMP and Movie Maker.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  2. Q1. Yes..... that Exchage update is the errant fiend at work here.

    Q2. Some 'foreign language' content, such as Sharepoint, Media Player, etc.
    are functional independent of the local/language configured on the core
    operating system, and thus can be installed on any language system.
    Specifically, the Office updates for the French and Spanish tools are there
    because there is a set of French language and Spanish language tools that
    are an optional install package for Office, and may, or may not, be
    installed on some or all of your clients.

    Hi Lawrence

    Thanks for the prompt response, but to return to Q1, what does "Bundled"
    mean? Will it be detected or installed?

  4. I really have no idea. I don't have Exchange 2000 installed, and have never
    encountered this particular anomaly on my own systems. Unless you need to
    patch an Exchange 2000 system, it probably doesn't really matter. Mark the
    update as "Not Approved" or "Declined" and be done with it.

    If you do need the update for an Exchange 2000 system, mark it as approved
    and let it install. The machines will figure out what they need to do.
