    Why is vmtools update from shavlik also installing C++ redistributable?

    rhagan Rookie

      Shavlik for windows patching v9.2.

       

       

      one of sys admin pushed some MS patching to VM (6.5) windows servers (2012R2 & 2016) that included vm tools updates.     when the sys admin started pushing just vm tools, we discovered that it was installing another patch that wasn't selected.

       

       

      we noticed both in server app logs and add/remove programs that C++ redistributable (both 64 & 32 bit) installers are getting installed also. 

       

       

      this doesn't happen via the virtual center (v 6.5) update.

       

       

      is this something that is expected with Shavlik on updating vm tools (ver 10305-9)?
