KB2756872 Windows 8 Update Fails to Install? Remove Realtek Audio Drivers
My notebook, just upgraded to Windows 8, has spent quite some time trying to install the KB2756872 update and rolling back after failures.
For the record, I have run
delmigprov.exe accompanying the standalone download of that update, but that alone did not help.
The solution in my case was the removal of Realtek audio drivers. (It is interesting that audio has continued to function, so now I am not sure whether I need those drivers at all.)
