Is there a way to manually install an update downloaded from the MS Update site?

I tried to download a service pack (SP1 for .NET v1.1) and it keep failing. After perusing the support site, I'm no further than before. Because the last couple times I tried to install it (again) it said it was already downloaded and ready to install, I figure I have the file I need, I just want to try and run it; but I can't find anything on my system that might be the installer.

According to the Windows group on Google, this may fix your problem:

"The issue can be caused by a damaged .NET Framework component.
Note: if any steps below have been tried, I suggest performing it as below
again, cause any change can make a different result.

Step 1: Download Microsoft Windows Installer CleanUp utility
============================================
1. Visit:

http://download.microsoft.com/downloa...

2. Save the file to your Desktop
3. Please double click the file msicuu2.exe on the Desktop to install this
tool on your computer.

Step 2: Remove .NET Framework 1.1
========================
1. Click Start -> All Programs->Windows Installer Clean Up.
2. See if you can find .NET Framework software. If so, remove it.
3. Restart the computer

Step 3: Install .NET Framework 1.1 Redistributable Package and .NET
Framework 1.1 SP1
=====================================================
1. Please download the Microsoft .NET Framework Version 1.1 Redistributable Package and the updates from the following link and save them to the C drive (C:\)
(You can save them to the C drive, but I just prefer to click Run)

1.) Microsoft .NET Framework Version 1.1 Redistributable Package

http://download.microsoft.com/downloa....

2.) Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1

http://download.microsoft.com/downloa....

3.)Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework, Version 1.1 Service Pack 1 (KB928366)

http://www.download.windowsupdate.com...

Once you finish installing these updates, restart your computer. Then
install the failed KB929729 update from the automatic update window. The
update will install successfully and the problem will be fixed "

Hope this helps.

Google Groups.... shoot, I didn't try there (gee, search Google for MS info... should have guessed).

Anyway, I'll try this and let you (and GS) know how it works.

i well and truly believe that micrOsoft IS the biggest HOAX EVER PERPETUATED on the consumer.
Many are unable todownload THEIR REMEDIES FOR THEIR SECURITY PROBLEMS and even from THEIR OWN CORPORATE WEBSITE you CANNOT GET INFO.
hope the lawsuits are loooooooooong and expensive when consumers' accounts have been hacked and their credit card accounts looted.

if you go to http://download.microsoft.com and search for a file called "qfecheck" and install it, then click "start" then click "run" and type in "cmd" and click ok, then on the cmd window that opens, type "qfecheck" it'll list all installed updates, and will notifiy you of any that need re-installing (any need re-installing can be downloaded from the same site) just search for the KB00000 number and get the download for your windows version, most MS updates do have notes that warn you of certain issues when trying to apply an update if your pc needs an update its never had before :)
a lot of problems with updates arise from spyware removers & utilities that clean up the registry, wich confuses windows update wich then fails to show u certain updates (qfecheck) is harder for spyware to fool than the update site :)
