Hi,

Note to bwsayles : we have deleted your account by error, please register again and sorry for the inconvenience.

I downloaded this update and tried installing as usual. It fails because of an issue loading KB3033929. This is a Windows security update...one that is already installed on my system. Any ideas how to correct this issue so it will install?


We know that the informative message "Installation of KB3033929 (x64) appears to have failed. Do you want to continue the installation?" can occurs during Pyramix or Ovation installation.
If KB3033929 is already installed on your computer, if you can see it in Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Windows Update\View update history > Installed Updates...

press "Yes " to continue the installation.

Thank you. This particular update confused my computer. Through Windows Update it said it was installed, but through command prompt, it said it was not installed. I found some topics relating to this that said if certain updates were installed in the wrong order, this could happen. I had to install the update manually. I followed these steps:

https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/ask ... n-windows/

Just exchange the KB they refer to with the correct one. Maybe it will help for someone who has this issue.

Thanks for this new update. My ASIO was giving me trouble. This seems to have fixed it.
