Windows update KB2538242 continues to want to install RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows XP Pro with all updates installed (well, almost).  I have allowed KB2538242 to install a number of times, and Update History shows successfull installs, however, the update will again download and show it is ready to install.  I have attempted to remove MS VC++ 2005, but am told the file vcredist.msi is required.  I have vcredist.msi last modified December 2, 2006, 7:09:06 AM and vcredist.msi last modified December 2, 2006, 6:09:06 AM.  Both the forgoing yield the following error message  "

    C:\- - - \vcridist.msi is not a valid installation package for product Micorsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable."

    Is there a possible solution to this problem? ? ?

    Thanks in advance.

  • If the update has been successfully installed, you can simply ignore it.
    Also read the Microsoft Knowledge Base article 910339.
