Hi pomaria1;

You have posted this in the "Vulnerabilities' forum but do not appear to be reporting a vulnerability regarding the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package. Did you intend to ask a question about this update?

Also, I am unfamiliar with the [Security] annotation. I have not seen it used here before. Could you explain what it denotes?

If needing help to resolve having two versions, one Insecure and one Patched, please do the following.

=======
If not already, please run PSI in Advanced Mode.

To do this click on the PSI icon, in the system tray, to open the interface. In the top right corner, is "SIMPLE" blue in color and "ADVANCED" black? If not, click on "ADVANCED".

Click on the "Insecure" tab, Click on the [+] to the left of the program in question.

In the "Toolbox" click on the "Technical details" icon. Listed under "Version Detected:" it shows the old version PSI is reporting. The "Installation Path" is where PSI is finding the old stuff.

To go there, click on the "Open Folder" icon. This will open the folder where the old file(s) is(are).
=======

> Is the version detected & installation path available for both the Insecure & Patched?

> Should this be updated to Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package?

Hi,

Many Microsoft Updates require a reboot before they "kick in". When dealing with stubborn Microsoft updates, I recommend you try this procedure:

1) Check Microsoft Update, install all available security patches
2) Reboot
3) Repeat step 1, if anything was installed, repeat step 2
4) Rescan with the PSI

hope this helps.

Hi pomaria1,

version 9.0.30729.1 of MS Visual C++ 2008 is not the current one. Try to update to the current version 9.0.30729.4148 (KB973552) which you can download here:
