  1. Yes, it works, but it does so until you run Kodak Easyshare Gallery software;
    and when you do, it tells you that the XML parser is corrupted or inexisting
    and it offers you to Repair. If you repair, the problem comes again

  2. Is there an update for the Easyshare Gallery or, even better, is there
    alternative upload tools?

    Yes, there are. If the software is not functioning properly and putting
    the system at risk then it would behoove you to uninstall it and replace
    it with something that does function properly and will NOT leave the
    system at risk.

    Hi,
    I have a fresh install of Vista and was constantly getting a windows
    installer failure message of "Error opening installation log file". The log
    file had not been created on my laptop and there was nothing for me to
    uninstall.

    The solution (obvious in hind sight) was to download the patch exe and then
    right click and run as administrator.

    It didn't download for me on Vista. It said that it couldn't open the log
    file to complete the download. It asked me to verify the log file location.
    What nonsense!

  5. Sorry - downloading the executable from the link provided failed?

    If so, this indicates you have a problem with your web browser or internet
    connection. What web browser are you using?

    (This might also be caused by malware.)

    I just started getting the KB936181 notices today (8/14/08), but, unlike the
    original poster, I am running Windows XP/Pro SP3 on a fairly new machine.
    With the apparent exception of 936181 my system is up-to-date.

    Any thoughts?

    For what it is worth, it is popping up every few hours. Also, I checked for
    installed software and I couldn't find it in the list via the Control Panel.
    The Belarc Advisor was used to scan for any missing security updates, and it
    flagged this as missing with a link to this URL:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;Q936181

    For what it is worth, there was NO such error flagged before I installed SP3
    !!

    The cited URL gives some specific steps, which I intend to follow when I get
    a few minutes of slack time; alas, work takes priority. Any
    comments/suggestions would be appreciated.

  8. See this: Security Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service
    Pack 2 (KB936181) may repeatedly appear in the update list on Microsoft
    Update or on Windows Update
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/941729

    If you can not rename msxml4.dll while in normal Windows mode suggest
    you boot to Safe Mode and rename it from a Command Prompt from within there.

    The issue *migh* be caused by the installation of printer/all-in-one
    software after KB936181 was applied as it should be listed in Add/Remove
    Programs.

    I had that problem too, solved it by saving the file to my desktop and then
    right clickingit and using Run as Administrator

  11. Download the update (from the download center) and install it while booted to
    safe mode.

    I'm having the exact same trouble and it will not allow me to fix it. What
    brand and model is your laptop?
