MS Visual Studio Update: KB4336999



  • Anyone else fighting this after patch tuesday? From what I can glean it was pulled at some point and re-issued as part of this months patches. Looks like some bad logic either detecting that it's needed or that it can be applied.

    Windows Updates tells me that it's needed but attempting to apply the update through Windows Updates fails with error 0x80070643. Trying to apply the KB manually gives this: Capture.PNG

    I've got the VS 2015 Shell (Isolated), Tools for Applications and Language Support installed which I can only assume would have been installed by another app as prerequisites. I'd normally be able to get a good idea of which application based on matching the installation date but since this machine was updated to W10 from 8 or 8.1 on that date, it's a total crap-shoot.

    Ideas?

  • @notverypunny Not yet at least. I still have a lot to do though.



  • @notverypunny , I am facing the same problem,
    Searching for the resolution..

    Can anyone help?



  • Haven't put any more time into this, as it seems that my machine is one of the only ones hit. Weirdly enough the KB shows as already installed and needed at the same time..... this is worse than old school linux dependency hell....

    Worth noting that Linux has fixed a lot of their issues and will at least tell you, dnf install <something> required before this can proceed.

    Oh for sure, I've yet to play with dnf in depth, but yum was pretty stable the last time I had much of anything to do with a RH based distro. apt-get has been rock solid for years now, last time I can recall anything messing up with an apt based distro was on ubuntu 8.something if my memory is correct. zypper seems pretty solid too, but I've never been able to warm up to opensuse.
