I just got a new Dell Inspirion laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium Service pack 2. As usual there were several Windows Security updates that needed to be installed. Took two days to install them all. Or I thought all had installed. But after Secunia PSI kept insisting that no updates were installed, I checked the update history and found several had failed to install. All have the same Error code of 800F0902

 

I ran Microsoft Fixit tool, which said it detected no problems. But obviously that too failed.

 

The list of updates that failed are too numerous to report but here a few:

 

KB2909210

 

KB2656356

 

KB2789645

 

KB2756921

 

Most seemed to have to do with the Net Framework 3.5.1.

 

Does anyone have a clue how I can resolves this? Most importantly is my new Dell a lemon?

 

Thank for your time,

Have you tried installing them 1-by-1; re-booting after each?

I'm not sure why .NET 3.5.1 is trying to install when .NET 4.5 is the current version.

MS.NET versions are requested based on the version used by developer when writing a program.

 

Additionally...critical updates may exist for any version installed on the system.

 

Per http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/db61f1a6-8d74-4014-957d-3bdc4d6525e5/does-net-4-framework-include-net-framework-20-also :

 

"If you have a modern Windows version, certain .NET Framework versions come with it as part of the OS. Windows Vista includes .NET Framework 2.0/3.0. Windows 7 includes .NET Framework 2.0/3.0/3.5 (through 3.5 SP1). OTOH, Windows XP does not include any .NET Frameworks, so you would need to install 2.0/3.0/3.5 separately on XP machines"

Hmm, thank you for responding. I read the link you posted Louis. If I understand it correctly I do not have to worry about the net 3.5.1 updates not installing? The update for Net Framework 4.5.1 were installed.

 

So should I stop worrying?

 

Thank you,

If you have NET 3.5 installed...you should have 3.5, SP1 installed, as well as any critical updates pertaining to any installed version of NET..

Yes, the 3.5 is installed. In fact looking over the update history list I see that the updates that are marked as failed, appear again marked as having been installed successfully.

 

So I must assume the updates I believed had not been installed were? How confusing.

 

But I guess I don't have anything to worry about.

 

Thank you for your time.
