  • What happens if I try to apply an update that has already been applied manually?


    Should be a pretty easy question for you gurus. What will happen if I used esxupdate to apply a patch that has been previously applied? Alternatively, what will happen if I try to apply a patch after I have already installed a hotfix that replaces the one I am applying?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Can I remove the old update files that have already been applied?

    Good evening! I just a quick may be a dumb question... when I've updated my computer, if I remove the before update... like when a service pack number, as for example I downloaded the number of service pack 2 What do I do with the number of the service pack 1? delete it?

    Depends on the operating system - Windows

    Please note this is only for Windows XP and is not on Vista or Windows 7

    Folders that have uninstall as part of the name (for example $NtUninstallKB282010$ who reside in C:\windows (hidden files) are window Hot difficulty updating folders/files) can be removed safely (providing ever, you wish to uninstall the updates). I recommend you leave these records for a period of at least one month to make sure that the update works correctly.

    These updates can be removed individually or together. To learn more about the update/s go on:
    NB: XXXXXX = the actual number, not to mention the "Q" or "Ko."

    Once you have removed the uninstall folders/files, then go to control panel, add/remove programs. Select the title of the corresponding Windows fix on the folder/file of the patch you just deleted, and select Delete. You will get a Windows error. This is because you deleted the uninstall folder/files. Simply choose OK and the entry will be removed from the Add/Remove Programs list.

    Cleaning after installation of SP2


    XP SP3: Post Installation Cleanup

    For Vista and Windows 7

    The update uninstall method in Windows Vista is quite different from that in Windows XP.

    Uninstaller for each update folder no longer exists in Vista and the uninstall information is stored by the Volume Shadow Copy service.

    After each update, Volume Shadow Copy service backup only the updated files.

    So with Vista, it's a differential backup, rather than a full backup files for uninstall
    in Windows XP.

    This safeguard mechanism is used to save disk space.

    So basically, you are unable to manually delete the uninstall it from the computer.

    CC recently 'forgotten' who I am and I had to log in again.  I can still access my programs, so it does not seem a big deal.  When I checked CC to see if updates were available he said updates from the first 2015.3 and 2015.2 of the hearing are available.  I already have these versions downloaded and executed.

    This should be resolved by "restart" from the App store. To do this, go to

    • "Settings"-> "iTunes Store and App Store"-> click on your Apple ID at the top-> 'disconnect '.
    • Then reconnect.
    • If it does not, repeat and restart your iPhone before you make it back.

    See you soon.

  • How install/download the latest additional updates that have failed through automatic update?

    I recently downloaded 3 security updates, but have still several other updates failed. How to start these updates?


    1 how long have you been faced with the question?

    2. you have any application installed on the computer security?

    3 did you last modified the software on the computer?

    I suggest you to check Windows update failed to install. To do

    (a) go to control panel

    (b) click on Add / Remove programs

    (c) scroll to the bottom of the list of programs, to see that Windows updates put a check mark in the box next to see the updates.

    (d) you can also see all the updates that are on your computer.

    If the update has failed once, it might have gotten installed later, but Windows will offer this update.

    You can make a note the number of KB and then download and install the updates manually.


    Method 1:

    I suggest you run the FIXIT from the link below and.

  • updates that have failed the day 1, won't they update automatically the next day? and persevering until they are right? or what I need to do it manually? Dang! Tell me that it is not so...

    OK, so I'm at a dead end and had to buy a computer laptop refurb when my hard drive died while he's on leave.  Bought Monday, they had XP on it, but I checked the updates and it had 74 must be installed.

    I don't have access at home so I tried to install everything that was needed every day of the library since I bought this laptop on Monday.  On day 1, he said 74 needed to install updates, then I guess that the automatic far did a little more every day.  Finally the Service Pk 3 failed to install for the last 2 days.

    Now today I try again, but I'm looking back and see that some other updates in recent days have also failed.

    I don't want to go back and install each separately out of 110 undates installed.

    My question is: If one day some updates failed, the next day, wouldn't it automatically DL updates that failed the day before, get current?  If I were a computer, I would not keep DL and install new updates until the 'old' have been installed correctly.  So I just reasoning flawed or computers work this way?  Please tell me that I can't go back and redo all of those failed?

    Thanks a lot for your help in this matter!


    .. .Meanwhile service pk 3 tells me he has finished loading and is ready to install, restart, etc... and I just canceled the installation because it seems that to me... If these other failures are not fixed first there will be the svc pk 3 effect, as well.  Of course they wish that no cat could have answered my question instantly... but no, he referred me to a technical person...

    Well, perfectionism causes procrastination... and sometimes it's just maddening... Please help me?

  • I get an update, I have already

    My iPad Mini 4 has the 9.2.1 software on it and to my amazement, when I plugged in my laptop and iTunes open, he said there was an another update of the same generation. 9.2.1. I have no idea what is happening. Why - what is download the same build I have already after a few months of him I am up-to-date with 9.2.1? It's a glitch on the part of Apple or that they add a few fastening points to 9.2.1? And if this is the case, is not Apple do the same with the other software providers and add a number or two to build? As 9.2.3 instead of 9.2.1? It's really weird and IE it is 1.81 GB? Why is - this download so big that it's the same build? I appreciate anyone's help.

    1. it is not the case. Apple has fixed iOS 9.2.1 to solve the problem of 53 error.

    2. see #1.

    3. it's an emergency fix to stop the iPhones of being brick.
