KB2833941 - continuous update.

    Question

  • KB2833941 keeps loading (sucessfully) every time the XP computer is updated.

    Any solution to this problem besides hiding the update?

    Thanks,

    Andy

  • This was a frustrating one and took a bit to figure out.

    The problem is with .Net Framework 1.1. When it was originally installed, it put a file "netfx.msi" into your temp folder. This file is needed to install KB2833941. Problem is, temp folders tend to get cleaned.

    Solution:

    First, install 7-Zip if you don't have it. You'll need it to extract some files.

    Second, download .Net Framework 1.1 Redistributable from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=26 DO NOT INSTALL. You need to open it with 7-Zip: you can open 7-Zip and drag .Net onto it, or you right click on the downloaded file and extract it from there.

    Third, find a permanent folder to put "netfx.msi" and "netfx1.cab". I put mine into c:\config.msi\ (you can type that in the run box if needed).

    Finally, download KB2833941 from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=39469 and install it. At some point, it will say it can't find a file; browse to the place you put netfx.msi and netfx1.cab, and it will work fine from there.

  • I got a variant of this bug on POSReady 2009.  The NDP1.1sp1-KB2833941-X86.exe installer was failing with this System Exception, which is masked by Windows Update and Microsoft Update:

    The software update has encountered an exception that cannot be recovered from. Contact your system administrator for further assistance.
    
    Error code: 65535
    Error Message: System error.
    
    For more information, visit:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2833941

    The solution was to manually unzip the NDP1.1sp1-KB2833941-X86.exe installer using 7-Zip and double-click the NDP1.1sp1-KB2833941-X86.msp file directly.

    Afterwards, the KB2833941 update stops appearing in Windows Update and Microsoft Update because it is properly installed.

  • Thanks, that was the exact issue I was having. I thought about extracting it and trying to replace the files inside but for the most part I had given up after trying to solve it for 3 days. Makes me wonder if other people are having this exact same issue and have tried the countless FixIts or uninstallations like me to no avail.
