    Security and Quality Rollup updates for .NET Framework 3.5 SP1, 4.5.2, 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, 4.7, and 4.7.1 for Windows 8.1, RT 8.1, and Server 2012 R2 (KB 4340558)

    Gives me a code 80092004 and fails to install on Win8.1. Anyone else?

    open cmd as admin
    net stop wuauserv

    go to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution and delete the download folder

    go back to command prompt
    net start wuauserv

    try the update again.

    ^ If this doesn't do it, the tried and true sfc /scannow command often does the trick, too.

    Nope, didn't fix the issue except the code is different now.

    Already tried sfc and that didn't work either.

    disable all your a/v and scan utilities and post the other code.

    Yeah I got the same issue today on 7. For now, I have hid the update. Tired of being MS's beta tester for their updates. From now on, I'm going to wait 2-3 weeks.

    KB 43040556 installed fine on my Windows 7 Pro machine with a Q9550 processor, 8GB RAM, and a 128GB Crucial C300 SSD:

    I'm glad I dodged the issue.
