Ahh, but this was an error on your end sir, M$ has always advised that
patching or adding apps to the system should be done with everything
closed, and in most cases users are best served to reboot and patch/add
apps prior to doing anything but logging into the system. sure, most of
the time many of the warnings about closing other applications and such
can be ignored, but, with major patches like this, one should verge on the
order of most caution.
