I think you have to restart the whole computer after this update.

I ended up contacting the certification company, they wanted a screenshot of the required update installed "update installed successful dialogue" and they'll override it as a false positive.

I was having this exact same issue, and I wanted to share some information that I found.  To get past the compliance issue for me, the resolution was tied to IIS.  In IIS, go to your default website, and likely any other websites you have listed, and change .NET being used from 1.1.4322 to 2.0.50727.

On my Citrix server, this was easy.  There was a ASP .NET tab on the website with a convenient dropdown for the version of .NET to implement.

On my OWA server, this was much more painful.  The tab was not there.  Instead you go to Home Directory (tab), Configuration (of the App Pool) and edit each .net aspnet_isapi.dll to point to your new framework path.  Example new path: C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_isapi.dll

However, the nightmare is just beginning.  As soon as you do this, owa is shot, and all of your phone email apps are going to bug out.  The solution:  http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Fixing-Damaged-Incorrectly-Configured-OWA-2003-Installation.html

Get Metabase Explorer from IIS 6.0 Resource Kit http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=56fc92ee-a71a-4c73-b628-ade629c89499&DisplayLang=en

Backup the IIS Metabase by opening IIS Manager, right-click default website (and any others you have), select "save configuration to a file," and save.  Then delete the OWA Virtual Directories in your default web site: Exadmin, Exchange, Exchweb, Microsoft-server-activesync, oma, public.  Close IIS

Open Start, Programs, IIS Resources, Metabase Explorer, Metabase Explorer.
Expand Server (local)>LM
Right-click DS2MB key and delete

Open services.msc and restart Microsoft Exchange System Attendant Service.  This will recreate your deleted virtual directories.

"Almost that is, as there’s one more little thing to do. We need to reset the access permissions to Anonymous on the ExchWeb virtual directory. In order to do so start the IIS Manager then right-click the ExchWeb virtual directory and select Properties. Now select the Directory Security tab and click Edit under Authentication and access control. Make sure the Anonymous access and Integrated Windows Authentication check boxes are enabled then click OK and Apply. If an Inheritance Overrides dialog box pops up make sure you click Select All then OK. Under Authentication and access control, click Edit then clear the Integrated Windows authentication check box again. Click OK twice and you’re done."
