Fixing the “Child nodes not allowed.” bug in Visual Studio 2008

In installed disc (VS2008), these patches are in the folder [drive]:\WCU\dotNetFramework\dotNetMSP\[x64 | x86] and should be installed in this order:
NetFX2.0-KB110806-v6000-x[64 | 86].msu
NetFX3.0-KB929300-v6000-x[64 | 86].msu
There are also a couple of other patches in this folder, NetFX2.0-KB936704-v6000-x[64 | 86]_RTM-en.msu and NetFX2.0-KB936705-v6000-x[64 | 86]_RTM-en.msu, but these both fail if you try to install them. I suspect that these may be called during the VS2008 installation to bootstrap the installation of the patches above. Note that if you search for these Knowledge Base articles on the Microsoft site, the articles either do not exist, or they make no mention of any of these problems.
