Visual Studio Shell 2010 ENU - Hotfix KB4506161 RRS feed

  • Question

  • July 2019 Patch  come with Visual Studio hotfix KB4506161.  My MBSA scan result showed that my server requires this hotfix.  I downloaded from Microsoft Catalog server and run the installation, it says: KB4506161 does not apply, or is blocked by another condition on your computer.  Please see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=225649 for more details.  

    Other forum mentioned that the program: Visual Studio Shell 2010 ENU  is triggering the hotfix.  But how do we apply this hotfix?

  • I'm having the exact same problem. That shell is on a bunch of the servers I manage and I can't figure out what the issue is. My guess is Windows update erroneously thinks the patch is needed based on ANY of the VS 2010 components being present. Total guess though since I have yet to find anything in the logs to explain why it is failing.

  • I am also having this exact same issue and have had it previously.  It is because the isolated shell is installed and the patch requires Visual Studio 2010 SP1 installed in order to apply it.  We have decided to just go ahead and remove all Visual Studio 2010 isolated shell installs and components however that does not resolve the issue as I feel it would be counterproductive to install Visual Studio 2010 SP1 just to update the isolated shell.

  • Running into the same thing here.  I am simply declining the update in WSUS, typical Microsoft BS, you would think that they actually QA their patches from time to time...  Just one more way to help convince management to ditch Microsoft products going forward, expensive, insecure, buggy.

  • Having the same issue on our systems.  Same description.  Although we noticed this is MS Bulletin MS000-000 which maybe is some sort of late April Fools joke?!

  • Also having this issue.   Appears to be in places where the full Visual Studio install isnt around.  Just pieces that were installed to support other things like SQL Server.  The patch seems to be for the full product.  I'm going to decline this one for the time being.  as well as KB4506163 which is having same issue.

  • Hi Mike,

    AFAIK, it caused by a windows update authoring error and the engineer is working on it to get this issue resolved, please be patient for a while, thanks for your understanding.

    Best regards,

    Sara

  • Looks like Security update for the information disclosure vulnerability in Visual Studio 2015 Update 3 (KB4506164) hit the same issue as well.  Hope the engineering team could resolve this issue soon. :)

    Thanks!
