MS13-004: NDP45-KB2742613-x64.exe fails to install

This issue has been solved. See solution.

We are having installation failures for one patch in MS13-004: NDP45-KB2742613-x64.exe.

Manual installation through the URL to the SMP server appears to run successfully as does a manual running of the update directly downloaded from Microsoft. However, the Altiris supplied standard command line (/norestart /q) reports failure to install. As a verification I tried the custom command line with the same switches.

Additionally, regardless of a successful installation this update does not show as an installed update in Windows 7 Professional.

Logs are attached.

Any assistance will be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Greg,

I tried to reproduce this issue on my environment, but have not managed. As I see from attached logs verification of installation fails on your machine. Most likely it means that Assessment scan does not detect that update is installed.

Could you please provide more files from the affected machine?
I would like to check STPatchAssessment.xml and STPatchAssessment.log from client, where NDP45-KB2742613-x64.exe is not detected as installed in spite of successful installation. These files are usually located at "C:\Program Files\Altiris\Altiris Agent\Agents\SoftwareManagement\Software Delivery\{6D417916-467C-46A7-A870-6D86D9345B61}\cache\""

Thanks,
Roman

Hi Greg,

This issue is not reproducible anymore on my environment with Patch Data 7.1.389.
Could you please check if it is resolved with the latest Patch Data on your machines?

Hi Roman,

I renabled the patch after verifying the Patch Data version and it is now showing accurately as already installed.

Thank you for taking care of this for us! It is very much appreciated!!
