Latest Updates.... 1 Failed. Happen to You?

Today Wednesday 10.27.2010 I ran windows update ( run it every morning ).

It said their was 4 updates... well today was the first time I every had an issue.

One update Failed Installation... but I just hit try again and it installed.

The update is for #2388210 = Application Compatibility Update for Windows XP Professional x64 edition, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, Windows Embedded Standard 7, and Windows Server 2008 R2: October 2010 .

Since this is the first time an updates ever failed, I was just curious if this is happening to any of you!

This is the problem. Do not install automatically. Set to notify and you do the installing. When there are many and a restart is necessaary conflicts occur. Set update to notify and do one or two at a time.

Welocme, if you have any questions about the forum, just contact me and I will help.

I believe I encountered the same error message this evening while including all updates. I then followed rich46s method of installing updates and the matter was resolved IE: after the first 3 updates installed successfully I retried the failed update & it installed successfully (sometimes a reboot is required).

If all else fails follow the Microsoft link contained in the error message that states how to resolve this error.

yep happens here too, especially with updates that require a reboot...nothing to worry about . Usually on the second run it succeeds.

It's not so much as to the number of updates but it's the size of the update.
I usually download all the updates sized Kb first, then do the MB sized ones separately.
The optional ones I read to see if I really need or use it and if not I hide it.
This is just the way I do business and haven't any problems with downloads. IMHO

Same thing here. Succeeded on the second run. Could be the result of some arcane dependency issue.

Latest updates (4/12) and SP1
