Trying to get Windows 7, SP1 updated on a friend's computer.
It keeps giving me a "File Not Found" error.
One would think the MSFT Engineers would have thought to tell one WHICH
file is not found. Perhaps even give one a chance to find the missing file, rather than automatically uninstalling all the updates that it just took an hour to install.
I found a file called "Microsoft Fixit", but it did not seem to fix anything.
I then tried "System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7", a 300MB package (after I got the right version, all web links I found took me to the wrong version, and the MSFT download page didn't direct me to the right one).
One of the other annoying things is that MSFT has these nice progress bars that don't really seem to move at all. So, it might be stuck in one place for a half an hour. The Task Manager shows activity, so I have to assume it is doing Something.
I realize that the Mac Model is to hide everything from the end user. But, that assumes everything works as it should, which isn't always the case (with either PCs or Macs). There has to be a good balance between providing too much information and too little information.
