At home now.

KB3020369 was installed on 05/12/15. KB3172605 is/was not.

The last KB on the system is KB310xxxx.

So KB3172605 is first on the list of weekend chores.

Brink, can you answer the question (post #247) about the log files? thanks.

It won't make any difference with the log files.

Hi Shawn sorry to bug you,
With the windows update service stopped and disabled can you still run a stand alone installer without any errors if these other services are not changed ?
Background intelligent transfer services
Cryptographic
Windows installer

As far as I know the windows update service only affects the traditional built in update searching abilities through the updates window ?

I'm not referring to checking for updates just referring to running and installing a stand alone installer.

Hi,
Yep I thought it had a different function only for the updates window and the stand alone installer took over that process :/
Boy I was off as usual

Hi,

It's been awhile, but I finally got to do this. Thanks TZ for those excellent instruction pics you've been dropping all over the place. Was very helpful.

But now I have another question.

After I did the above, and restarted the update services, I had 31 updates waiting, but one was an 'update for Windows KB3172605'. When I looked at it, it said it was a fix to KB3172605. I let it install, but I confused (as usual).

So what's the fix for? and is it harmless?

Hello number42, :)

I'm glad the reset was able to help.

That's an updated KB3172605 that was re-released. The KB article below can give you more details about it.
