Manual or Apple Software Update of Boot Camp 3.1 won't work

Manual download of file seems to be broken (icon for program is not the same as the ones for BC3.2,BC3.3)

 

ASU downloads and indicated that it installed but never show any progress in doing so. Say to finish installing you need to restart. I restart and run ASU again and again  BC3.1 update is availible. Done this 4 times before I gave up and started searching the web. I have a Macbook Pro


MacBook Pro, Windows 7

    Says " to finish installing you need to restart."

     

    I restart and run Apple Software Update

    again

    and again 

    each time Boot Camp 3.1 update is availible

    hello, In case you haven't resolved your issue, I had the same thing a few years back and again a couple days ago.  The issue I had on my Mac Pro early 2008, and hopefully is similar for you is:  I have two video drivers, the regular ATI driver and a 3rd party driver for some specialized software.  The problem is BC 3.1 tells you it is installing, but it actually does not because of the 3rd party video driver. Solution for me was to remove the 3rd party driver and run ASU again, 3.1 installed fine, I then ran ASU two more times to get up to BC 3.3 and then reinstalled my 3rd party driver.

    Hope this helps, if not a video driver for you, maybe some other driver causing the issue.

    Hi 78c3sam

    Thanks but I did eventualy find the problem.

     

    The link to apple server was/is broke for ASU

    to fix- do this

    In Windows bottom left click on windows symbol and do a search for "cmd"

    then right click and Run as administrator

    then Type in "notepad c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts" without the quotes

    when notepad pops up last line type in

    "63.80.242.43 swcatalog.apple.com" again without the quotes

    close window and save

    now run "Apple Software Updater" it should now work properly

     

    Not sure why this is needed because Apple had seemed to away be good for me

    Have a great day

    I downloaded the file, it is not corrupted, yours is (so you say) so do it again.
