Microsoft Security Update Does Not Update GDIPlus.dll with SONIC Solution Applications

MS Security Update (MS02-028) does not update SONIC Solution’s GDIPlus.dll when run. It only updates Microsoft’s own installed GDIPlus.dll file in C:\windows\system32 directory. When Microsoft’s GDI+ Detection Tool is run it will find SONIC Solution’s version and report it has not been updated.

The GDIPlus.dll file is used by Windows and other applications to manipulate 2D graphics, specifically JPEG images.SONIC Solution includes a GDIPlus.dll with their applications in the application’s root directory for legacy purposes.

See SONIC Solution’s knowledgebase article for this issue:
