    Tackling the thorny .NET update process

    Tackling the thorny .NET update process


    By Susan Bradley

    It's time to revisit the many .NET Framework updates, starting with the more problematic one for Windows XP. Windows 8 also has a few platform fixes, and there are a few leftovers for Vista and Windows 7.

    I would like to see a printable version of your update chart. It would make it easier to compare with the updates listed in the update screen in windows. Is there another solution other than printing it?

    I had to turn off Windows Update on this Windows 7 computer because WU kept trying to install some of the .NET updates again and again.

    I had tried just stopping WU after I noticed 8 to 10 repeat installations of the same update in the WU history.

    I can't find anything that tells me why that was going on when each install was "correct?"

    Common problem. Usually an indication that one of your .dot net installations is corrupted. Uninstall all .net version listed in programs and features. Then install .net 4 frome here:

    Afterwards you should be able to install any .net updates.
