Issue/Introduction

Microsoft Bulletin: Malicious Software Removal Tool - MSRT-001-Windows-KB890830-x64-V5.30.exe continuously fails to install on Microsoft Windows 7 Professional x64 Clients.

Exit Code 0

Cause

Confirmed rule targeting is in order. Reported environment had issues with downloading newer version of the Bulletin upon release and was deploying older version packages to the Client.

Client executes the installation as these packages maintain the same GUID upon each monthly release but the older update fails to update the targeted files to return IsInstalled=TRUE so the SMP continued to target for IsApplicable=TRUE.

Resolution

Working as designed.
