It was real pain to find why this happened. There are numerous threads in the Internet about failed Windows update, and it is very hard to find the right answer. Luckily, I found a post in CNET forum from Jim Sheehy from Sequel Data Systems. He supports more than 800 desktops and he is writing about three possible causes of Windows update failure:
The Windows Update Temporary folder is corrupted. (%windir%\SoftwareDistribution)
Visual Studio 2010 shows the following error: 1>------ Build started: Project: some_project_name_i_am_hiding, Configuration: Debug Win32 ------
1>c:\program files (x86)\microsoft visual studio 10.0\vc\include\intrin.h(26): fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'ammintrin.h': No such file or directory
========== Build: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========
Error is caused because file intrin.h have reference to ammintrin.h, and after this update there is no such file. Relevant fragment from intrin.h: #if defined(_M_IX86) || defined(_M_X64)
#include <immintrin.h> #include <ammintrin.h>
Installing service pack 1 takes some time while I am writing this blog post… 30 minutes… And Building / compiling after SP1 is successful. So installing Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 fixes this issue.
Yesterday tried to install ‘Security Update for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 (KB2455033)’ via Windows update on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit but it failed with Code 643. Installation constantly failed with Code 643 – Some updates were not installed.
Currently Google search does not shows anything useful, however Microsoft Connect have listed 4 workarounds. I tried only last one, and it worked.
