Thanks for the reply Robert.
My objective is to get VS 2010 installed, period. The problem is this
particular Win Update (KB956250), which is part of the .NET Framework 4.0
install, fails no matter how I try to install it.
Install what manually? The Win Update? I would if I knew how. I've run
the WUSA command from command line, but it fails there too. I just did a
search and MS has a KB page for the 956250 update now (no KB reference
existed before a couple days ago). This package still fails to install with
the same error.
Can you tell me how to install the update manually, if that's what you meant?
