.Net patching error: None of the products that are addressed by this software update are installed on this computerΒΆ

Problem: “None of the products that are addressed by this software update are installed on this computer.”

none apply

Fired up procmon to see what it was testing for, and on a whim decided to just try applying the temp-extracted .msp (right-click on NDP35-KB2418240.msp, and “Install”, before exiting the error dialog). Works fine for this specific error, and similar .Net patch errors.
