WOU and .Net updates

Hello the WSUS Experts forum !
Need an advice on:
using WOU 10.9.2 version for Win2012 R2Server with .Net 3.5 and 4.6.1 patching. Use "security-only updates" option.
Works great for OS, Adobe flash player and IE updates.
For .Net security only updates does not work well, for example:
KB 4457916 2018-09 Security Only Update for .NET Framework 3.5, 4.5.2, 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, 4.7, 4.7.1, 4.7.2 for Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 R2 for x64 .
This "parent" KB contains 3 "child" .net patches: KB4457026(for .net 3.5), kb4457056 (for .net 4.6) and kb4457028 (for .net 4.5)
I expect , WOU will install KB4457026(for .net 3.5) and kb4457056 (for .net 4.6)
Indeed, both KBs are inside the WOU glb folder, but after execution these two are not getting installed on my server.


What I can see from the WSUS logs is that the tool has successfully identified. .Net versions installed onmy server (3.5 and 4.6)

Fri 09/28/2018 18:18:34.98 - Info: Found Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 version 3.5.30729.4926
Fri 09/28/2018 18:18:34.98 - Info: Found Microsoft .NET Framework 4 version 4.6.01055

but then :
Warning: Update kb4457916 (id: 5850b2f4-ba26-485e-a941-72c801dc7e79) not found
(indeed "parent" kb4457916 is not in the package, however all 3 "child" KBs are in the package)

====================================================
Can you please explain the WOU logic for .Net updates

Please try the latest version 11.5. The UpdateGenerator.exe should offer this version automatically, but you can also get it from the download page http://download.wsusoffline.net/ .

Hi, were you able to get the .net 3.5, 4.5.2 and 4.6 updates to install with WOU 11.5?
I have 2008r2 and 2012r2 servers that have 3.5 and 4.5.2 and I always have to install the updates manually.

MBSA scan always shows these security and rollup updates missing after running WOU. For the last year or 2, I have had to download the .net updates and install them manually to our servers. If you find a way to get them to install with WOU, please let me know.

Thanks
