[German]Just a brief not to users/admins, who are suffering from .NET-Framework installation error 0x80092004. Microsoft released Update KB4340558 for .NET Framework on July 19, 2018 via Microsoft Update Catalog.
What’s the problem with update KB4340558?
Update KB4340558 (Security and Quality Rollup updates for .NET Framework 3.5 SP1, 4.5.2, 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, 4.7, 4.7.1, and 4.7.2 for Windows 8.1, RT 8.1, and Server 2012 R2) has been initially released on July 10, 2018 via Windows Update (see my blog post Microsoft Patchday: Other Updates July 10, 2018).
On many machines, however, the installation was aborted with the error code 0x80092004 (see my blog post Net Framework: Update KB4340558 drops error 0x80092004?).
Several attempts to fix that issue
Microsoft has published the article “0x80092004” error occurs and July 2018 .NET Security and Quality Rollup update KB4340557 or KB4340558 does not install after you apply June update KB4291497 or KB4291495 on July 13, 2018. Microsoft suggests two workarounds within the article, which were successful for some users, the .NET framework update could be installed. However, other users were still facing installation error 0x80092004.
Subsequently, update KB4340558 was offered again in the Microsoft Update Catalog with the modification date July 16, 2018. Whether something was changed within the package itself or only the metafiles, I could not determine. Today, German blog reader TomParis1975 (thx) posted a comment, mentions, that update KB4340558 has been re-released on July 19, 2018 in Microsoft Update Catalog. Tom wrote:
There is a working official MS solution since last night:
I’m glad I didn’t rush into anything yesterday. I was already removing one of the updates as recommended
– 2018-06 Preview of Quality Rollup for.NET Framework … (KB4291497)
which was recommended by some people (thanks to everyone!), but was installed on my system according to WinUpd, but not listed in “programs / installed updates” and not available according to “wusa / uninstall ” (super..)
– or 2018-07 security update only for.NET Framework … for Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 R2 for x64 (KB4340006) (that seemed right to me, but I wasn’t sure)
so, now the 3 replacement patches downloaded (see link), installed 8415, 8419, restarted. They said 8424 was already installed. Update now is completely ok (also lists 4340558 as installed correctly)
At this point, I would like to ask those affected who have not been helped by previous workarounds and revisions: Will the installation of Update KB4340558 work if the three individual packages in question are newly downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog?
