VS2010 SP1 Update Failure

If it’s not hard enough to deal with and understand the Microsoft .NET frameowork they go and make their VS upgrade convoluted and buggy!

After what seems like and age the installer throws out an unconvincing error 0x800C0006 and an audit log that goes recursive!

For those who suffer the same or similar plight there is a simple solution … download the SP1 ISO image, mount it on a drive and install as you would have wanted to in the first place!
