Same Update (KB2467175) Keeps Appearing

I have successfully installed the same update KB2467175 at least five times and it continues to appear as an important update that should be downloaded and installed. What's up with this?

Try a manual install for this update here.
Download details: Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package MFC Security Update

Your specs show Win 7 32bit so download the vcredist_x86.exe.

Follow prompts and restart if asked to do so.

Let us know if that works.

Tried your suggestion but it didn't work. Gave error: "Error 1606. Could not access network location %APPDATA%\."
My internet connection was active. Can you suggest any other fixes? Thank you for your help.

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit

I solved it! I’m on Windows 7 32 bit.
For me, this problem became a bigger problem when I could not install Nero10 which wanted to use the right C++2005 Redistributable. So the suggestion to just hide the update is not sufficient.
Here's how I solved it:
Elesewhere it is often suggested to try and install the update manually. This always ended in failure with the update asking me to specify the right path to the update and never accepting it.
Then I noted there are several versions of the vcredist_x86.exe around. The one that worked for me is the 6.0.3790 that I found here:
Download Confirmation - Microsoft Download Center
Just to be complete, I also found a v. 6.0.2900 that didn’t work which is here:
Download Details - Microsoft Download Center - Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package ATL Security Update
so don’t download that.
Try to just install the 6.0.3790 first, maybe this is just a better or bugless update. If that doesn’t work, well, here’s what I did just before that:
In the Windows uninstall software page (not on the installed updates page) you will find one or more Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 updates (and 2008). I tried uninstalling the 2005 ones (we’ll put them back later) , and then again the resource not found error came up, making it impossible to uninstall.
Then, with Tune up Utilities 2010, I was able to just kick the entry from the installed software list. Ashampoo Uninstaller and some other utilities also have the option to get something off the list if you cannot uninstall them. It just scratches the entry in some way. Possibly some regedit hack could do it too.
After this and a reboot to make sure, I was able to install the 6.0.3790 update found on the first link above. From there on, windows update will pick up any updating and reinstalling of the redistributables that is left to do. And after that Nero10 installed fine as well.
I hope this works for some people and saves you time. If it works please post something in response(thanks?) I would appreciate and enjoy that!

Any one understand why the following repeats at every shut down? This has been happening since the 15/6/11 and is very irritating I have now hidden the update..

You will need to manually download the update and install. Reboot if prompted after install.
Go to this link > Download details: Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package MFC Security Update

There are three downloads listed. You will need the second or third marked as below.

vcredist_x64.EXE This is for 64bit.

vcredist_x86.EXE This is for 32bit.

Since you did not post which version of Windows Home Premium you have you will need to find out then select proper download.

Thanks for speedy response. I did the manual load but not your other suggestion - v-credist etc.

Still unsolved!


Tried it twice - still no joy! It was this update you were referring to (KB2538242)? I hope.
I'll hide the update, 'though it troubles me (especially as I don't know what its all about), when I see 'important' attached to it.

Perhaps I went to the wrong thread?

Sorry that didn't work.
It works about 95% of the time.
Yes it was the right one I double checked it.

This was down the page from the download buttons.
