This issue has been solved. See solution.


since the last days we've the Problem, that the Patch MS12-055 tries to reinstall and failed after 5 attemps.

If I install the update manually, the Windows installer comes up with the following error (see attached file).

Any ideas.


Greetings Sebastian

I've not seen the cache, nor the install log files but a probably cause could be that you have installed MS12-075 that supersedes MS12-055.

Can you check for this?

thanks for the reply.
I've checked the installlog.csv the MS12-075 isn't installed.
Also the bulletin isn't downloaded.

Hi Sebastian,
Thank you for the provided files. I have reproduced same issue - actually there is long chain of superseded updates and it looks like KB2731847 should be detected as superseded :

According to your logs, KB2778930 from MS13-005 is installed on your machine.
Installed KB2778930 replaces KB2779030 (from MS12-078)
KB2779030 replaces KB2761226 (from MS12-075)
KB2761226 replaces affected KB2731847 (from MS12-055)

Patch Data team was informed about this issue.

Thank you,
