• Tip for the weekend – January 22 – the Microsoft Catalog site

    Video here

    This weekend I’m demonstrating how the Microsoft Catalog site works. This month if you use business VPN software you may need to manually download patches from the Microsoft catalog site.

    But there’s a slight little problem with the site, while part of it is in https, the links to the patch itself comes down on http. In the modern browsers that we use, this makes the download process throw off an error. So to get around it, you have to click to enable the download.

    Mind you this “bug” has been there since 2018.

    Bottom line, it’s normal. This is one of those times I’ll tell you to go ahead and “just click”. One of the FEW times I’ll tell you to click through a warning.
