    MC 4.0.5.14 & OK Microsoft Update Patches To Have ???

    Hi Editors: I've reached an impasse at the moment on trying to determine what Microsoft update patches are approved by Avid and what ones are not. I know how to get Win XP Pro with Service Pack 2 to list what hot fixes are crammed into my machine, but what I have not been able to find is a list from Avid of the approved windows update patches which should be residing on my system (If any ?). I did a search through the Avid knowledge base hoping to find the right .pdf listing them, but once again I've come up empty. Can anyone here assist me on this ? I want my HP nw9440 laptop to be as correctly configured as humanly possible for the level of MC I'm using.

    Avid tests an OS with a service pack and that's it.

    Hi Luca: This is what I need to confirm.

    Mark, if You go by the readme You can't go wrong, some configs may need an hotfix, whenever that is the case it's documented.

    Hi Luca: I've done this with MC 4.0.5.14, but it doesn't mention Win XP configuration info about hotfixes. I know Service Pack 2 & Service Pack three are OK, but what about all those tons of pesky little hotfixes ? Another nasty, which I have personally witnessed causing problems is Net FRame Work ! These are evil, nasty Microsoft crap software updates, which only seem to mess up an OS !
