I have a critical update that keeps coming up. Here is an image: This has been a problem for over a month now. It seems to be causing an error with My SQL Server BIDS 2008; specifically VSTO, which crashes constantly now (it never used to cause any problems). Windows automatically recommended that i get something called 'System Update Readiness Tool'. I go that and was prompted to install something named 'Windows6.1-KB947821-v14-x64'. I downloaded and installed the file; I made the critical update. NOW, I AM STILL BEING PROMPTED TO INSTALL THE SECURITY UPDATE FOR MICROSOFT VISUAL STUDIO 2008 SERVICE PACK 1 (KB971092) Has anyone delt with this before? Does anyone here know how to resolve this issue? I'd be so grateful to get this working (finally). Thanks everyone!!
