      When I selected Windows Update KB4887080 to install on my Windows 8.1 what actually installed was KB4483450 & KB4483459 
      Does anyone know why? This always happens. I selected an update from the list to install. That update Never shows to have been installed on my PC but others do that weren’t even on the list.

      Please review the support article https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4487080/security-and-quality-rollup-updates-for-net-framework-3-5-to-4-7-2

      The main body gives information about the vulnerabilities patched. Scroll down to a section titled Additional information about this update. Here you will find additional links to the component parts of the Rollup. Your Installed Updates list shows the two parts that fit the needs of your system. The third part was not needed, so not installed.

        Thank you, I must always miss that info when reading additional information.

          Glad I could highlight the information that helped. They don’t make it obvious. You have not been the first to be surprised by the .NET Rollup; how it installs more than one line entry, and with different numbers than listed in Windows Update. I had to learn it too. Have a good day.
