Windows 10: W10 Update Run Amok? Solved

    W10 Update Run Amok?


    Seems like W10 update is having a problem with this update? Or is this just another unique feature? Or is it something I'm doing wrong? Everyday brings a new W10 adventure on one of my six systems!

    I had exactly the same with a HP printer driver. It claims it was installed 6 times one after the other, all marked successful. Never found any reason why this happened, or if there are any problems because of it either.

    I have seen this problem before and it is fixed by going into Programs & Features and selecting in turn both instances of the C++ 2012 redistributable (there will be a (x64) and a (x86) version), clicking on Change and then running a repair.

    Thanks for the quick response. I did the "Change/Repair" routine for C++ 2012 (x64) and it seemed to work. However, for C++ 2012 and C++ 2013 I only have the x64 version installed? C++ 2010 has both the x64 and x86 versions installed. Have I got yet another W10 issue?

    Whether you have one or both of the versions depends on which other programs have been installed on your system as they are called for by the installation process for the programs you load into W10. I would not worry about it, if you install new programs in the future you might find that it appears then.

    The main thing is that you have now stopped getting the repeat updates.

    That worked. Now, how do I clear the update history since it is filled with bogus updates.
