.Net update problemsLocked
I have seen this problem only occasionally – where MS Update fails on the .Net updates – so I didn’t take it seriously until it hit me personally.
So I tried to research it, and have not come up with a satisfactory solution. Here are my questions:
1) What is the difference (and the relevance) of a .net USER and a .net DEVELOPER? And how does MS Update treat that distinction, even when the end-user doesn’t know it?
2) Why do some end-users readily take the updates (I believe 3.5 is the latest?) while others fail? These are users that – for 99% of the time – are no different than the others. NONE of them develop apps for anybody.
3) I don’t develop apps – I just try to fix things. I run a true-blue Microsoft shop under Exchange and other approved software. Microsoft should not be punishing me this way.
Any ideas? Background: All XP Pro, one Vista, SBS2003.
