I had no problems with the updates, I checked just after 8 o'clock last evening my time and installed the first batch of 8 and after the reboot there was another one and that went through with no problems. I have Silverlight 5 on here.

I am running Silverlight 5 and after more research I found that this patch is for Silverlight 4 and so that is why I was never offered the patch.

MS12-016: Description of the security update for Microsoft Silverlight: February 14, 2012

This update offers a new build (version 4.1.10111.0) that is an upgrade to earlier versions of Silverlight. This update is included in current Silverlight installers.

Thanks Jim.

I have v4.0. I had to look I didn't know ther was more than one.
You would think they would just prompt you to install v5.0 instead.

I'll get the 5.0 if it hasn't updated yet.
I have 5.0 now.

Its strange since one of my systems has 4 and the other 5 and both running same OS. Don't know how I did that?

According to the link below, the "Failed" status is incorrect.
The update really installed correctly.

KB2668562 - Microsoft Silverlight Failed to update. - Microsoft Answers

Does anyone know if "" a MS site ?

Win 7 machines I updated today do not get an error for this, so it looks like MS fixed the issue.
Machines I updated yesterday that did get a "Failed" error, do not show any updates available today.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Service Pack 1

Good thing I'm backlogged and pressed for time. I couldn't do the Wednesday (Philippine Time) patches routine which will have to wait until tomorrow. I'll want to probably keep my eye on this topic for more updates

Win 7 Home Premium x64

How about KB2600217? Listed as important but not checked. Learned last month this is called "throttling", when MS suspects a problem. It's a big one too.

Based on my experience last month MS forgets about it unless you somehow push them to check it for install.
Recent updates are unchecked in Windows Update. Why?
