    What has happened with this update for me ?? it keeps installing.. or fails.
    I've tried uninstalling it, reinstalling it, installing it more than once,
    installing it in Safe Mode. The damn thing wont install and keeps being found
    :(

    Ready to kill it ! can I change something in the registry to force it as
    found ?? and should I check if the files are updated...

  2. Hi,

    Sometimes, if MDAC and/or MSXML 4 is not up to date, Windows Update/
    Automatic Update doesn't see the Rollup 1 as installed:

    In the thread in the link above Dave Hawley mentioned that the problem
    seemed to be caused by

    ....two components of Windows were out of date.
    These were MS Data Access Components 2.8,
    which needed to be upgraded to SP1, and MSXML 4.0,
    which needed to be upgraded to SP2.

    He found this from running MBSA 1.2.1

    There are specific version checker programs for both components:
