Just a FYI (KB3001652) Update to Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office runtime seems to be stuck doing nothing for 30 mins on 3 of my machines. May want to skip that update and install it separately.

I just "Hard" rebooted twice because of this Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office runtime one.... and have to update one by one the eleven all the others in proposed WU.

It had left two locked installer folders (as attached pic). Do not know why this one was on proposal, i do not run any of the Office products.

I will try to install it again but with the stand-alone installer from kb article link.

On the one Windows 7 machine the update worked on I got a standalone installer and had to agree, press next and then exit. The problem is we can't press next if we are never shown the installer Window and agreement. Therefore it sits and does nothing.

Good point!

Been a while i haven't installed a stand-alone Visual C++ redistributable package and it caught me on CLUF to agree, then exited.

drgerry,

To possibly repair Visio's PDF, try going to Control Panel, then Programs and Features, then right-click on Microsoft Office or if it shows as Visio in the program list then right-click on that. From the menu, select Change (not Uninstall) then in the dialog box that comes up select Repair, then click Continue. Hope this helps.


If you need further assistance on Visio and PDF open a new thread as I don't wish to hijack this thread.
