This is due to the fact that there is not a self-contained .EXE download for VS 2010 SP1, there is only a .ISO file.
There is a similar issue with Visual Studio 2008 SP1.
The following article explains how to download all of it.
You could then create a custom definition to download the .ZIP file, unzip it into a subfolder in the SDMCACHE directory and then run SPINSTALLER.EXE from that directory.
This should apply for VS 2010 SP1 as well.
Thank you very much, the information you provided helped me accomplish what was necessary. I hope in the future Landesk has a way to address these out of the ordinary service packs so users don't need to perform workarounds.
I'm looking to do the same thing? Does anyone have a custom def export I can use to get mine set up quickly?
Any help greatly appreciated.
Could this perhaps be covered by a manual definitions, where LANDesk provide the detection and remediation logic, and the local LD admin is simply required to place the necessary files in the patch repository?
Yes a "Detect Only" vulnerability would be great. It's the detection logic that is the complicated part really. I have created a software distribution task for VS2010 SP1 so migrating this to a vulnerability rule should be no problem...
I'm guessing create a zip file that contains the contents of the ISO then set the rule to download this file, extract it and run the setup.exe with the same switches as in my software package.
