The article needs to be updated.

The removing of specified updates of msxml3.dll - KB955069, KB973687, KB2079403 work perfectly in my XPx32 SP3. Thank's a lot, Ridavide

Hi geoguys, after a series of Win updates I was no more able to read my metadata! ArcCatalog only show me the message "Warning! Not implemented". I've tried all the solutions listed in previous thread http://forums.esri.com/Thread.asp?c=93&f=981&t=268271 but I cannot get rid of the problem (i.e. the removing of specified updates of msxml3.dll - KB955069, KB973687, KB2079403 - didn't work). Eventually the only operational solution that I found is to install the ThreeTab1-9Setup.zip at script http://arcscripts.esri.com/details.asp?dbid=12592 It works! Now I can retain WinXP updates AND read/modify my metadata. Nevertheless I do need to uninstall IE>6 to prevent crash of ArcToolbox. Take care, Davide PS I'm an ArcGis 9.0 user.

I would like to see a new article that discusses the topic outlined below.

What are the ramifications of your workaround: Uninstall the Microsoft XML Core Security Update (KB955069).

The article is incorrect or the solution didn’t work.

I have found the error "Metadata not implemented" in 9.3 Thanks, Susan

It is apparently not necessary to do all of the workaround points. I just uninstalled the Microsoft XML Security Update (KB955069) and got my metadata back. Maybe I was just lucky.

Other - See details below.

I am experiencing the metadata problem and I do not have the XML Core Security Update KB955069 loaded. I can provide details of the configurtion if you specify exactly what you need. I am running 9.1. I can not update to 9.3, this is government contract I am not in control of. I can not deinstall the XML patch becaue it appears I do not have it loaded. Loading a 9.2 patch on 9.1 is normally not advisable, correct? Please advise.

The article has missing, misleading, or conflicting information.

Just wanted to point out that the "Announcement" on the Support page refers to the Vista operating system, and I had the same issue running XP. It appears that SP6 resolved the issue for me, though.

Why would the Microsoft XML Core Security Update (KB955069), which is for Vista platforms, affect ArcView 8.1, 8.2, and 9.1 if they are all run on Windows XP? Does Windows updates for Vista automatically upload on XP machines? I have this problem on all computers with either 8 or 9 installed.
