Nothing that I can see.

The Install Process

I’ve converted to using Tom’s great “install-hotfixes” PowerShell module to install my updates these days. Here’s the output. Note that I’ve dropped ALL of the pre-req’s in the one temporary folder on my desktop (including the old ones I already believe I have installed) and am letting them fight it out:



Alas, yes – although the KB says no. The MSO update set the reboot flag apparently. (Click the image for a more legible view).
