    .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 and .NET Framework 3.5 Family Update (KB951847) x86

    There are two updates in my system which are waiting for approval. The updates are associated with dot net. None of my client network has .net installed then how does this update appears. The KB951847 is listed in WSUS. I am still waiting for the more updates which might fix this thing. I am unsure about running this updates. I just want to know that is it find if I do not approve this two updates. Or they are essential to install. The updates information in listed below.
    • Update ID: 72309362-525d-4ad6-b90a-d414cabf3690
    • Update ID: 990484d1-4d45-4c8c-a5a5-e0d82aca292d

    You must approve all updates which are prompted in WSUS. They are required for some apps to perform well. It does not matter whether you have .net installed or not. Approve lies on your choice. You can allow or decline.

    What I know that the .net updates are only detected when it is present in your system. I am too confused with the logic of locating this updates in WSUS. I do not want to make any changes as all stuff is working fine. If you want to add .net then you can allow the updates or else ignoring will not affect anything I think. The updates are required as if this are discontinued or not provided further, you cannot get them back. So to be on the safer side this will provide some security patches to .net apps if you are going to use it in future.

    I am looking for some information on KB829019. WSUS does not shows up any listed related to the same, but still I am willing to addup the same in Windows Server. Some time ago when the update was prompted I had discontinued the same. Now the updates did not appear back again. I can go with manual setup, but for that I have to do that in each and every system in my network. To some extent ignoring update is not recommended. They are basically for your system.

    One of the latest updates that I had seen in my system is 990484d1-4d45-4c8c-a5a5-e0d82aca292d. It is detected on my system where .net is installed. There can be chances that in your system .net 2+ is installed and you are not aware about the same.

    I had checked in WSUS a number of time which shows me around 25 client systems listed and the update id needed for them is 990484d1-4d45-4c8c-a5a5-e0d82aca292d. There were some systems which were having .net 1.1 installed before. Now there is nothing installed. I had checked manually in each of them that whether it is available or not. I found that nowhere. So in my views those client system does not need this update and I will better disapprove the same.

    That is the expected thing. If there are updates in you system you must approve and this are not going to harm your system. Some number of applications need .net to perform well and at that point this update are beneficial. Remember that the edition of .net are different. Like in some of my system I am having net1.x while the update was about .net 2.x. Ignoring them is well recommended. So this can be patch to update the existing edition. Updates are mostly released for all.

    It is not compulsory to install each and every updates listed in WSUS. This normally depends on you that you need the same or not. If you do not want to approve those updates then you can simply avoid the same.

    I think whatever component listed in WSUS is a bit critical and you must run that. It is prompted because .net is installed in your system. Now the approval is on your choice. You can control the patching of tool. Blind update are not recommended. While compared to that patching allows you more stability.

    Those updates will be seen in the list for some time as they will be expired and it will be not visible. I have around 4 packages related to that update in my system. I had approved around 2 packages which looks to be fine. It is right that in absence of .net in your system there is no login is providing this updates. They must not be available for all systems but for only those which has .net installed. The reason behind that is, your .net many be defective because of which you can see this updates.

    After examining the updates for .NET, I think that 958481 gives you the .NET 2.0 part of the giant 951847 2.0/3.0/3.5 update -

    32 bit:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/e...displaylang=en

    64 bit:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/e...displaylang=en

    Lately the Microsoft website has been very slow, so I was reluctant to download a 70 MB file from it. But I accepted the monster 951847 update to see what I would get on a system that started with .NET 2.0 SP2, and never had 3.0 or 3.5 installed. In addition to updating 2.0, it also installed 3.5 and 3.0. In the Add/Remove control panel, I couldn't remove 3.0 first, but once I removed 3.5, I could then remove 3.0.

    To test my .NET 2.0 setup, I installed one of the two apps I use that needs .NET 2.0, and it worked OK. I'm used to running this app with a P-III running at 866 MHz, and it had sluggish screen redraws. The machine I used for this test was a P-4 running at 2.8 GHz and Intel 865G video, and the screen redraws were quicker, but still subpar. If I were running a programming shop, I would NOT use .NET. It's ridiculous to need a gaming machine just to get a fast refresh on a data entry screen.
