Possibly fixed in 3.0 / 4560?
Just for everyone who was wondering if this had been fixed in v3.0 -- after initially installing v3.0 (build 4560) I was continuing to have the problem -- installing the updates through the icon in the system tray didn't work.
Installing the updates manually with the "/o" flag initially didn't seem to help - the first time I restarted the VM after installing the updates, the system tray icon showed up again. So I thought "Oh, great, they still haven't fixed this."
But oddly, when I went to Microsoft's "Windows Update" website, it didn't show the updates as needing to be installed.
So then I tried installing the updates manually with the "/o" flag AGAIN, and after restarting this time, it seems like the fixes are finally 'sticking'. So far, the update icon hasn't reappeared in the system tray.
