NOT Wanted FONTS PATCH KB2670838 and IEAK11 Silent last status? RRS feed

  • Frage

  • Hello,

    BLURY FONTS  PATCH KB2670838 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2670838/en-us)is not listed as Download Search on MS-Downloads today 11.03.2015 BUT needed for IE11 Setup as i understood.

    We have gone through this for a customer request to upgrade from IE9 to IE11. I normally work with IEAK since years. We always check the PRE patches and then as we had in IE9 the POST hotfixes (Reaching 7-15 pieces for each IE version > Patches you may have to request).

    I see two problems with reading a few hours now and doing research:

    1) PRE INSTALL patches without the Reboot

    If you install the 9 patches with a batch or script you should

    a) Reboot the client which makes it a Reboot and advance package which some deployment can't handle

    b) Solution > Rebuild the Patch Inventory by running command "%winsysdir%\wbem\wmic.exe qfe"

    2) BLURY PATCH KB2670838

    For existing machines and also for new installation through deployment we have following scenario at almost all customers in Switzerland.

    a) Customer who have a WSUS clean by us have KB2670838 DENY and thus not installed.

    b) The IEAK11 setup DOES install patches which he needs in the background silent. So KB2670838 would be downloaded if the "Computer-accounts" proxy is set right. But we don't want that and we don't want the patch.

    Can someone FROM Microsoft please tell us how to advance in this?

    IE11 IEAK needs the KB2670838 and still in V8 of the KB it will cause blurry FONTS. The patch will in V( detect some GFX cards they have problems and skip the worst like bluescreen.

    Did anybody SOLVE this after release of the IE11 and the KB2670838 ?
