Re: Microsoft Security Essentials Prerelease

This thread, in Microsoft's MSE forum, might shed some light

quote:
The correct version # is 4.2.223.0 and the upgrade is only available via the WU process or from the program's 'check for software updates' feature (which uses the WU pipeline).

BTW the thread also contains a link to the updater EXE so you can update offline if you wish.

Nice find, now I can pull out the installer from my Updates cache

I gotta try and find the same thing when I'm at work for Forefront 2010's update that came out in November, it was WU only so you have to install the original build and then WU update it, I've been hoping for an easy offline way to do that.

Unfortunately the one linked is x86 (just unzip it). If you have the x64 one it'd be nice if you posted it somewhere (pretty please)

That was easy!

Add .exe to the end of the file and you get the x64 MSE installer

Got it thanks!

For others here's the full pathname.

C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\ebd2cb6d79da21ae1fb45a192a460b132d788f77

on x86 machines the updater pathname is

C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\3ad554dd391f1d754ddd279e76cdc823d44244d8
