Microsoft AutoUpdate for AutoUpdate Program

Published September 23, 2004
I found this funny, when opening up a Microsoft program, it began Office2004.gif to run the autoupdate from Microsoft. This is the first time I have ever seen a Microsoft autoupdate program launch. So then I looked at what was being updated, and guess what? Microsoft was updating the auto-update program.
This update fixes an error in the AutoUpdate download progress bar, which did not accurately display the progress of the download. While this update is downloading, the progress bar might not accurately display the status. After the update is installed, the download progress bar will accurately display the status of future downloads.
