It’s NOT installed, you lying turd, stop claiming that it is
I have just about had enough of the RM AppAgent lying to me about whether a system update is installed or not.
For some unknown reason, the RM package management system cannot tell the difference between a Windows update installing correctly, and one that starts to install and then fails halfway through. This means it will merrily tell me that all my workstations have Windows XP SP3 and Internet Explorer 8 when the reality is that a half dozen workstation have failed to install one or the other.
Why have they failed? Because the idiot who preinstalled CC3 on the workstation years ago relegated half(!) of a 20GB hard disk to the utterly useless local backup system, meaning I only have 10GB for the entire system partition – which has unsurprisingly run out of space, causing updates to fail installing.
This is the sort of amateur junk that CC3 is full of. Is it any wonder so many schools are reluctant to spend money on its overpriced and bug-ridden successor, CC4?
