          I'm not sure what the question is except it appears like the update is failing on the specific machine.. I would verify that the update was failing and if so, fix the problem. (Check the VS Console/Autoupdate listing to see is it's updating correctly. Does it update correctly when you RIGHT click on the VS shield, choose "Update Now"? Things like that.) Is that what you're looking for?

          Hope this helps.

            hi grif,
            I have the same problem as mac1106. I noticed this when right-clicked on "update now", and then, in the list that usually says "downloading dat" and "update finished" and else... it sayed like "update not applyed because of anknown error..", then I chequed in the errors (don´t know the excact name of the place) and found exactly what mac1106 pasted in here, (the 258 event).
            the question is: how can it be solved?
            because up to now, it was working fine.
            One thing!: I remember I blocked everything in the windows firewall recently, but then, because of this, i did the oposite with all the macffe items i could see in the firewall exception programas list, but maybe it has to do whit the problem, i don´t know, i have no idea. Can you or anybody help us?
            thank you!

              Unfortuntely, you've told us very little about your computer.. Operating system and the specific version of VirusScan would sure help.. Which patch do you have installed on VirusScan? If you don't have the most recent for your version of VS, then please install it.. And if that doesn't help, then just a thought or two...

              Check to see if your "FrameworkManifest.xml" file is corrupt. If it's missing or corrupt, copy one from another computer and paste it into the problem machine. See the link below:


              Or...since this problem can also be caused by malware, please download, install, update, then run a full system scan using the free antispyware tool from the link below. Delete anything it finds.

              Hope this helps.
