Net Framework Update Won't Install RRS feed

  • Question

  • "Microsoft Net Framework 4.5.1 for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64-based systems (KB2858725)" will not install on my WHS 2011 system.  I have a plain vanilla installation with no add-ons.  I have never had an update that failed to install before.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

  • Windows Home Server 2011 doesn't require that update. Even though it's listed as "important", it's not going to install automatically, and I would not recommend you install it manually unless you have something installed on your server which does require it.

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • It installed without problem on mine and I don't recall doing anything special to do so.
