how long will take to install security update for microsoft visual C++ 2008 service pack 1 redistributable package
I am installing the visual C++ 2008 SP1 kb2467174 for laptops with on one with 64bits and 32bits, they are still going after restarted the laptops. Anyone has any idea how long it will take? Should I turned the power off eventhough it said on the screen
not to power off.
Something is not right since it takes long time at the window update screen and now after the restart, it's over 1 hour and they are still going.
Thank you for replying to my question. I checked the update, there are two kb2446708 and kb...710 have already installed. Over 1 hrs at the update screen, 1 hr 40 mins after restart screen and after I wrote the question in this forum, I decided a complete
shutdown (pushed power button for more than 30 sec.) eventhough the screen said "do not power off or unplugged the power). After reboot the windows in "normal mode", I went to check the software update in the control center, the kb2467174 was there. I don't
know how and why, no progress was showing during the update process.
