MS08-045 - Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (953838)and frame location

P: n/a
JAG
The following line of code worked in my .hta prior to installing
MS08-045 - Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (953838)
(on both XP and W2K):
window.top.frames['viewer'].location = [currentDoc];

After installing the above update on both XP and W2K, I had to change
the above line to the following to get the same result:
window.top.frames['viewer'].location = ["viewer.html"];

I did a little research on the MS site but failed to get specifics on
what "Cumulative" really means.

Does anyone know what was "fixed" in IE, and/or why I had to
explicitly specify the frame location?

Thanks in advance.

Their update comments are full of other jargon too, such as "hotfix"
and "rollup". There are "Cumulative update rollups" and "Hotfix
rollups", so who knows? MS aren't saying, they attempt to describe
what cumulative update means here:

<URL: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/953878/en-us >

which talks about it in terms of hotfixes, without explaining what a
hotfix is. There is an MS blog entry that tries to explain the
diffences (you may not think it succeeds):

Try asking in a group interested in Microsoft updates to IE.

If hotfixes are rolled up, they can become too hot to touch.

Rollups can be fixed or dynamic, the latter unroll spontaneously.

Cumulative rollups are hotfixes that were forgotten to be included in
earlier uprolled updates.

Did MS ever cumulate in any cool fixes of hot rollups?

You have not said what `currentDoc' is, so all bets are off. However, one
wonders why you try to assign an Array object reference instead of a proper
primitive string value in the first place. Maybe you should first get the
basics of JScript and MSHTML DOM programming right.

Thanks for the information/education.

FWIW, currentDoc contains the [relative] path and filename of a file
to be displayed.

And now I must get back to school...
