Getting those hotfixes

A little trick.  If you come across a KB that talks about a hotfix is available and there’s no icon at the top for the link to the URL where you can request one, all you have to do is find a KB that has one, click on the “hotfix available’ link and change the KB number:


http://support.microsoft.com/hotfix/KBHotfix.aspx?kbnum=933430&kbln=en-us


http://support.microsoft.com/hotfix/KBHotfix.aspx?kbnum=######&kbln=en-us  Just change the ###### to the KB number you need the hotfix for.  Don’t forget that if you need a 64bit hotifx you just click on the ” Show hotfixes for all platforms and languages link to expose the 64 bit versions.


Pretty cool huh!
