Have a Widows XP Pro desktop automatically getting updates from Server. Unable to install KB2633870. Associated Update KB2600217 installs ok. I have 50 other desktops and laptops where the update installed no problem. Tried repair of .net Framework 4. Tried Uninstalling and reinstalling .net Framework 4. Still no go. I don't want to reinstall Windows but I am prepared to do it as last resort.

1) See: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2633870   for info on this update...

2) Try manually downloading this file at the URL above and try a manual install

3) Is there an error code associated with the failure?  Exactly HOW is it failing?

4) See: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/976982 for 2 methods to attempt repair, Method 1 is a downloadable "FIXIT" , method 2 is a manual repair procedure...

Trying the manual install. Will advise.
FYI-- no error codes. Message says installation completed successfully (???)

Manual Install did not work. Same symptoms- Message indicating successful install.
Will proceed with Step 4.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Ran the fixit and tried a repair (for the 3rd time). Ran Windows Update and the Update again appeared to install but is not installed. Very Weird.
