[BCAB] Intel Update failing to install

Clive,

These things happen, and they are generally down to a misconfiguration or a
problem with the software. The thing that annoys me more is the support
specialist who says either: Ignore it, or: uninstall it. This is not an
answer.
I can find no reference to your error using normal search engines, and my
technet subscription has expired. I hope manual installation does the job,

Best,

David.

Hi David,

The short answer is 'no, I haven't' but it sounds a good idea so I'll give
it a bash and let you know if it works!  I too, do not like it when updates
misbehave in this fashion, especially when it occurs on a machine that has
always updated without a hiccup till now!

Cheers,

Clive.S
