Updates for the .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2, the .NET Framework 3.0 Service Pack 2, or the .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 may not correctly update files even when installation of the update succeeds
Article ID: 2431806 - View products that this article applies to.
When you install certain updates for the .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2, the .NET Framework 3.0 Service Pack 2, or the .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1, the update may install successfully. However, files may not be updated. Therefore, the update may be reoffered on Windows Update.
This scenario may occur for several reasons that include certain installation failure issues that are related to dual branch servicing. Between January 2009 and July 2009, several hotfixes for the .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2, the .NET Framework 3.0 Service Pack 2, and the .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 were released with a defect. When hotfixes that have this defect are installed, and then a security update is installed, the presence of the hotfix prevents the payload files in the security update from being updated correctly. In certain cases, this issue may also manifest itself in the form of the error that is described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
2262911Microsoft has removed all the hotfixes that included this defect and has replaced these with new hotfixes that do not have the defect. The Microsoft Knowledge Base articles for the defective hotfixes were updated, and they list the replacement hotfixes without the defect. If you have installed one of the defective hotfixes that are listed here, apply the workaround that is described in the "Workaround" section of this article to address the issue. If you do not apply the workaround, there is a possibility that the files in the payload for a security update may not be updated correctly, leaving the computer in an inconsistent and possibly vulnerable state.
