Post 09-014 Companyweb wants a password, install 961143

{Edit 4/19/2009 – please note this issue occurs when you have IE6 or IE7 installed.  It is not necessary to have IE8 installed on the server.  The April IE patch is the trigger for this.}

(Please note you will only see this issue when you install 09-014 on the Server, if you install 09-014 on the server, the workstations may prompt for a user name and password but you will be able to enter the information and continue on)

If you install 09-014 KB963027 Microsoft Security Bulletin MS09-014 – Critical: Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (963027): which is this month’s IE bulletin… you will see the following on your SBS box when you browse to Companyweb:

The trigger is NOT having installed KB961143

The issue is caused by the IE security patch.  To fix it install 961143 

Error message when you use Internet Explorer 8 Beta to access your company Web site in Windows Small Business Server 2003: “HTTP 401.1 – Unauthorized”:

Which is on MU but in the middle section

Install that, it doesn’t even need a reboot

And Companyweb works

THANK YOU to Lars for the heads up on this issue

    This fix doesn’t work on SBS2K3/SP2. I have Net Framework 2 installed, and I have 961143 installed. Still can’t get to Companyweb on the server.

    I have SP2 on my box and indeed it does work.

    What are you seeing on yours?

    what do I do, if the hotfix 961143 won’t install on a German SBS2003 R2? Up to now I only found it for English systems…
