Security Update for Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 (KB937060)

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by Allan Lillebæk, Nov 9, 2007.

  1. I have installed VS2005, and when I run Windows Update afterwards, it
    downloads the 'Security Update for Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 (KB937060)',
    but this fails to install, with the errorcode 0x66A.
    I haven't been able to find any solutions, and running the install again
    gives the same result (tried it 6 times, including a reboot inbetween).

    You do not say where you have looked for a solution or how you tried to
    download this KB or from where you tried the download.
    The error code looked familiar(short, easy to remember) and it appeared over
    the last two to three months in connection with .Net Framework updates??
    under different KB numbers.
    I assume you are running WINXP SP2?

  3. I looked at support.microsoft.com, both for the error code 0x66A, and for
    the hotfix (KB937060).
    Yes, I'm running WinXP SP2.
    Now I searched Google, and here I found an article, saying that if I have
    ..NET 3.5 installed, I should just ignore it.
    I have .NET 3.0 installed, not 3.5.

    You have not said how you have tried to get this KB installed - there is
    more than one way to skin a ........not one way works for all.
    As you are using that web interface to post, have you searched within that
    to find issues re MVS - I don't use that discussion group, so do not know my
    way around it, but just one search has produced the below.
    There is an issue, which has yet not shown in this group, but most seem to
    be about KB937061 which I believe is the Vista update??

    One reply in this group from MSFT
    Copied from post:-
    Hi,
    If you have VS 2005 SP1 present but the Crystal Reports feature is not
    present, MS07-052 is re-offered.

    Customers are protected and are not at risk to this vulnerability

    We will be updating the detection on Microsoft Update, customers that have
    already installed this update need to take no action. We are working to
    resolve this issue and it should be fixed shortly

    Thank you

    Eric[MSFT]

    It would seem that the best solution for the moment is to hide this update
    in WU Home Hidden Folder, until a fix is issued or you could try the MS
    How to troubleshoot Windows Update or Microsoft Update when you are
    repeatedly offered an update
    http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=910339

    Windows Update already installed
    http://www.updatexp.com/windows-update-already-installed.html

    Windows Update says the update is still needed

    I wish you luck
