Download Updates for Windows Server 2012 R2 Security Baseline..every time I open SCM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Each and every time I open SCM, I am prompted to download the Windows Server 2012 R2 Security Baseline 1.0 Fr, August 15 2004...   Doesn't matter if I've installed it before or not.  

    Anyone else seeing this problem?  Does anyone know why this is happening or how I can get it to stop?   I tried uninstalling SCM and reinstalling, but the problem continues. 

    SCM is installed on a Windows 7 virtual machine, if that is relevant. 

    Thank you,

  • Same issue here. Shame MS doesn't put more resources on this tool.

  • Sadly, this has sat for more than a year with no answer, yet the problem remains.  

    Microsoft charges money for useless products and, when they develop a potentially useful product like SCM, they give it away free and don't support it.  What a waste.  If SCM could be built to work properly and some of the more ridiculous problems (such as this one) addressed and fixed, then SCM might be something MS could actually sell. But, here we sit with just more MS crapware stinking up our system.

    Wish I could say I was shocked. Thanks for living up to your rep MS.
