Windows Update decided I needed to install "Security Update for Microsoft.NET Framework, Version 1.1 Service Pack 1 (KB929729)." The update was released July 10 and has failed to install numerous times. I was under the inpression Vista already had Version 2.0, so I am baffled why it wants to install a 1.1 update, and my update history lists that "Security Update for Microsoft.NET Framework, Version 2.0 (KB929916)" was successfully installed on July 10.

Can I make Vista recognize I don't need the V1.1 service pack so it stops trying to install or, if it is needed, can I make it complete the install?

As I understand it, the .NET versions are separate and standalone. You should have Vs 1.1 plus a Hotfix, Vs 2.0, and as you have Vista you should also have Vs 3.

MS offers free help for critical update problems, so I would be inclined to check there first. If you don't get any joy, come back and I'm sure someone will be able to assist you.

Search your hard drive for files and folders containing: 929729

Let us know what you find and we'll suggest which ones to delete to let the update restart.
