Warning in log file about failed downloads

Warning in log file about failed downloads

Postby jamielightfoot » 18.08.2016, 21:26

I have been trying to update my Win 7 Ult. rig after the WU failed after 3 clean reinstallations of the OS. Every time I use the "UpdateGenerator", since the 1st successful use of the tool that did install 20 updates and 15.9k regedits and updated the WU list of installed updates, and look at the log file, there are always 4 warnings, and they are all the same:
Warning: Download of http://download.microsoft.com/download/ ... st.x64.exe failed (which is tied to the "Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable (x64 and x86) - 14.0.2306"

I have tried to use the generator with the "Include C++ Runtime Libraries and .NET Frameworks" bith clicked and not, but the end result is always the same.

I have also downloaded and manually installed the "Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable (x64 and x86) - 14.0.2306", but the same failed download warnings occure when using the UpdateGenerator.

I have also set WU to never check for updates, rebooted, rerun the UpdateGenerator, but I get the same result.

Also, when I execute the "UpdateInstaller", it appears to run a bunch of updates in the Command Prompt window, no new updates are successfully installed (i.e. the history list of updates in WU shows dozens of failed installations) with the 1 exception "Update for Windows (KB2819745).

I am very impressed and grateful for this tool, to which I will be donating when I have my next deposit. I'm pretty sure that the issues above are MS issues.

Thank you in advance.

Yes, MS has new links and the old ones don't work anymore.
