That's the second reason that you're doing a manual install. If it fails,
you can now have much better diagnostics about the failure. Hint: among
all the files that the update creates or adds to look for an msi log or
maximize it by rerunning the install with a verbose switch on your command
line. Etc. BTW if you're not sure about how to find all of the changed
files (e.g., I don't think you can use Windows Search any more for this) you
can use ProcMon to capture any Operation Contains WRITE made by the
update's process name. FWIW I usually find dir/a/s/ta | sort
sufficient (e.g. in a cmd window) but I have my time and date set up to
enable that sort (e.g. Date YYYY-MM-DD and time HH:MM:SS -- ISO date and
24 hour with zero filled values. )
