Problem: KB974417 install fails

I recently had a very annoing error with KB974417 an WSUS:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: HotFixInstaller
Event Category: None
Event ID: 5000
Date:  3/22/2010
Time:  3:37:07 PM
User:  N/A
EventType visualstudio8setup, P1 microsoft .net framework 2.0-kb974417, P2 1033, P3 1642, P4 msi, P5 f, P6 9.0.40302.0, P7 install, P8 x86, P9 w2k3, P10 0.

Solution: install it manually
Download NDP20SP2-KB974417-x86.exe
Extract it with /x option
Doubleclick the .msp file to install.
On Microsoft community page I found also this solution:
  1. Go to Add/Remove Programs (Show Updates)
  2. Uninstall the .NET 2.0 Update KB976569 and reboot.
  3. Apply KB974417 successfully, reboot. (The KB975569 update will then be subsequently applied)
