    Hello Niall,

    I recently installed the hotfix. The state is now installed in the console, and the console itself prompted me to upgrade. I also see new OSD has the new agent version and existing clients are beginning to upgrade through the scheduled task. After two days, I am still seeing cmupdate.exe running in the task manager. The cmupdate.log file shows “Waiting for changes to the D:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\inboxes\cmupdate.box directories, updates will be polled in 600 seconds” entered into the log every ten minutes. Is there something I missed as manually browsing to that folder reveals an empty folder. Thanks!
