I’m seeing a lot of failures in our deployment of the MS09-017 fixlet that pertains to the Office Compatibility Pack (Reference #901736).
We’ve tested the relevance clauses against machines that have failed the deployment. The portions of the relevance that check for versions of Office (Relevance 5) , as well as the versions of EXEs and DLLs (Relevance 6), both report as “True”. In the case of the latter, this can be manually verified as correct.
When we attempted to manually install the update by downloading the patch from Microsoft, the installation failed, stating that the expected version of the software (I’m guessing the Office Compatibility Pack) was not present.
Is this a false positive, or an issue with the fixlet relevance?
