I ran the patches for 1.x, 2.x, 3. and 4.x my PSI shows 1.x and 2.x patched HOWEVER, 3.x and 4.x still remain.

If I try to download the patches, my Windows Update window shows that Windows is up to date.

I've tried several times and rebooted and it still comes up. I even reinstalled PSI. Below is the detailed info...

I am running Windows Vista Home Basic (6.0.6002) w/service pack 2

The .NET Framework 3.x is in this location:
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.0\Windows Communication Foundation

The .NET Framework 4.x is in this location:
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319

Hello Rene ,

Better to have your own thread when complex matters such as .Net are afoot (the other thread was for an XP user - you have Vista - and the Original Poster had already been badly "hi-jacked" :(()

The up to date versions of .Net for Vista are :-

VISTA SP2

2.0.50727.4209
3.0.4506.4037
4.0.30319.1

What versions are being displayed in PSI for the 3.0. and 4.0 as they are located on your computer ?? Which version of the PSI are you using ?? What is your download history at M$updates saying for the .Net patches/KB's ?? Have you used Belarc to give you a crosscheck of your installation of KB's ?? :-

Anthony,

Thanks for your response and advice about the posting here.

Below is the info you requested. I have no issues with 1.x or 2.x only 3 and 4.

Here's the version info (both are current):
.NET 3.x is version 3.0.4506.4037
.NET 4.x is version 4.0.30319.1

Secunia PSI version v1.5.0.1

MS Windows Update KBs for 3.x:
(KB2416470)
(KB2416473)
(KB982525)
(KB979910)
(KB982536)

MS Updates KBs info for 4.x:
(KB982670)

As ar as using Belarc Advisor, I downloaded and ran the scan but I'm not certain what I should be looking for in the results.

Let us do Belarc first - bear in mind I use XP and not Vista so you may see slight variations compared to me !!

The Belarc scan should have asked to update itself (which you accept) and then scanned and launched the scan results in your default browser .

Top right of the page should show you a "Microsoft Security Updates" block . If you have all the patches/KB's installed it will give you a Green tick , if not something in Red :( NOTE : installed (at this stage) does not mean verified !!

Now scroll down through lots of useful stuff about what is making up your computer until you see "Installed Microsoft Hotfixes" (in black) ; just below the heading on the left side you should see a series of headings for .NET Framework + version numbers . Each version's section should list the KB's you have installed and the date of installation . We are interested in those you have downloaded in the last few days - but also any anomalies from earlier installs .

A correctly installed and verified security hotfix will show a closed padlock to the left , a missing or non-verified KB will have different information - the key to the display icons is at the bottom of the listings .

Tell us what you find .

It is getting late for me here on CET , so I will be back to you tomorrow ; post your findings now , as someone else may wish to help you . Your version numbers displayed by the PSI are up to date and if Belarc says you are green then you probably are ; we still need to get to the bottom of things .

See you tomorrow .

Anthony

Anthony,

Thanks again, I really appreciate your time.

As I'm sure you know, Vista is a very different animal than XP. BUT, good news! I poked around on the Belarc results and the links they provided under the list of Hotfixes for .NET 3.5 sp1 and found this:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx...

I downloaded and ran that update, scanned my system with PSI and all is well!!!

God bless!

Hello Rene ,

Pleased to hear that you got things fixed , well done - a few people are still struggling , but that is often the way with .Net as there are so many different variations which can crop up .

If you ever have any other questions , don't hesitate to start a thread and ask ; plenty of helpers around :))

Take care

Anthony
