Microsoft QA

Two weeks ago, I installed Windows 2000 on my iBook using Virtual PC. Everything went fine until I wanted to use Windows update. There were plenty of updates ready to install when a dialog with the license agreement appeared and a JScript Error message appeared. The error leaded to have the ‘I accept’ button deactivated. There was no way to install the updates beside to install IE 6 manually. After having installed IE 6, everything went fine. It would have been funny if IE 6 would have required some Windows 2000 servicepack :).
In my opinion, it is stupid to have an update mechanism relying on HTML and JavaScript.
