RE: Framework updates KB928366 and KB932471 - problems
OK. My question about KB932471 has been answered in another related post on
this forum. The update is failing because I do have .Net Framework 3.5
(Pre-Release Version) installed. I can direct Windows Update to ignore/hide
this update in the future.
But I still don't have a clue about KB928366! Anyone?
