I have Vista Ultimate 64 installed in my pc with SP2. I never had any problem with automatic updates until recently where after i installed the updates the pc entered an infinite rewstar loop after trying to install update 3 of 3. I googled it and saw that this problem came on surface on february and after installing a certain update first u were ok but i already have this update through SP2...
I believe I have a (Vista Ultimate x64 RC-1? Already has SP1) cd. I can install it fine. I can then install the correct drivers for my hardware. And all works well, until... I use windows updates and select the 'important' only updates. After that, I'm stuck in a boot-loop. And by boot-loop, I mean I can't get into windows OR safe-mode. I have done this 2 times so far. It definitely only happens when I run the updates (can work perfectly fine for days w/o the updates).It's like I'm just now allowed to have an updated version of Vista. I made a restore point prior to the updates, so I can get back to where I was, but I obviously can't run an outdated OS all the time.
I have Windows Home Premium 64 Bit and every time I restart I get a message saying 1 to 3 updates ... I then see this message again on startup. I feel like something is wrong with the update system. I reinstalled Vista and disabled automatic updates. However, after a while I started to get the same problem. I have Office, Visual Studio, Messenger and a few Adobe products installed.
the latest Vista updates were downloaded to my computer. I didn't restart my computer after the updates were downloaded. When I turned on my laptop this morning, the Startup Repair window comes up because windows failed to start. I've run the repair several times, and it's unable to repair. It lists the following
problem details: Problem Event Name: StartupRepariV2 Problem Signature 01: AutoFailover Problem Signature 02: 6.0.6000.1636220.127.116.1101.1800 Problem Signature 03: 5 Problem Signature 04: 262148 Problem Signature 05: BadDriver Problem Signature 06: BadDriver Problem Signature 07: 0 Problem Signature 08: 3 Problem Signature 09: WrpRepair Problem Signature 10: 10 OS Version: 6.0.6000.2.0.0.256.1 Local ID: 1033
So, I see that part (if not all) of the problem is bad drivers. Why is this so and how can I fix it? I have a Gateway M-Series laptop (about 10 months old).
I am helping a friend install windows updates on her Sony VAIO laptop with Vista Home Premium SP1 installed. Laptop had not been updated since January 2009. All updates completed fine with the exception of KB973565. When installed via automatic windows updates I get the following error...........
I have 3 updates to Vista Business that will not install; SQL Server 2005 Express SP3 (KB955706), Security Update for SQL Server SP2 (KB954606), & a Security Update for PowerPoint 2007 (KB951338). Over the past few months I have tried updating in safe mode, ran upgrade as admin (even thouigh I log in under admin user group), put the Office CD in the drive before updating, updated in safe mode, unregistered the dll's... Other updates install fine.If I had the time I'd reinstall Vista, but I really do not have the time or patience to do that right now.
I have recently installed vista ultimate on my new pc, i did it as an upgrade from xp. Everything works fine and the pc is well up for vista showing a 4.9 in the experience index. The problem i have is that vista has downloaded 33 updates and they will not install, when i click the start button, then the install/ shutdown button it runs through the installing procedure for about 20 minutes than shuts down, when i next reboot the system it says "configuring updates" runs like this for about 20mins then starts as normal. When i check the installed updates, they all show as failed.
I noticed that several weeks ago Microsoft changed the old good Updater to the new buggy one. Sometimes I cannot install updates because I cannot select them! See the screenshots. Week ago my hard drive died, so I bought new and reinstalled everything. Fresh system with old Updater updated well, but then new updater installed, and bug returned. I cannot fix by myself because I have no source code of Updater (Microsoft does not publish source code of their products for unknown reason).
that is my current problem and ive been searching everywhere for a solution and came up empty handed so i decided to post here, maybe someone has my answer. i also try and click the install important updates and does nothing, same with install updates and shut down computer....just freezes >_<
I am running Vista x64. My computer is a bit over a year old and all of a sudden as of a few weeks ago I am unable to install any programs or install any updates. Never had any problems before. I am not sure why this is happening but I don't have any viruses, that I know of. A virus scan is clear. When I try to update I get an error code of 80200053
Using automatic install, upgrades KB950124, KB950125, and Vista SP 1 fails. Also since these upgrades were attempted, I lost all audio on my computer. I re-installed software for my Audigy 2ZS sound card and ran diagnostics with "failed" results everytime. My audio faults claim I must re-install and egister "CTTHXCAL.DLL" and "CTSCAL.DLL" files. Are these Windows files or Soundblaster files?
I have Vista Home Premium 32-bit, on Dell Inspiron 6400. After a repair install, I now have two problems: - Although there are 75 Windows Updates in the list, I have tried several times over the last two days to install these. So far, only a few are marked "Successful". The great majority are marked "Failed". - There is no SP1 available in the list of updates.
Here is the history:
- My laptop was pre-loaded with Vista (no SP1). The OEM DVD was also SP0. - I installed SP1 when it became available. - A few days ago, I neede to do a repair install. So I uninstalled SP1, and did a repair install as specified in Brink's tutorial: Repair Install For Vista - As far as I know, the repair completed successfully. There were no "Files discarded by Windows Upgrade" (Maybe this is important!). I was not asked for my product key, or asked to activate Vista. - Immediately after the repair, I launched Windows Update, and found the two problems noted above.
BTW: To the best of my knowledge, my laptop is working fine. The minor glitches that prompted the repair install have disappeare.
A few minutes ago, a message popped up in the bottom right corner telling me to install Windows updates. I checked and found that Windows wants me to install between 386 and 423 MB of updates -- damn, that's about as much stuff as I have on my HD to start with. These are the updates listed:
-- Office 2003 SP1 -- but I don't run Office 2003 or any components thereof.
-- Microsoft .NET Framework SP1 and Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Family Update -- What is this?
-- 2007 Office SP1 -- Maybe I could use this one as I am running Office 2007.
I'm unable to install the following Security Updates: Excell 2007, Office Outlook 2007 and 2007 Microsoft Office. I even tried turning off my AVG anti virus before installion. I get only the Error 52F, no other codes. I have tried installing them separately and as stand alone installers from website...same result.
I cannot download or install updated because my Background Intelligent Transfer Service is not working for some reason. Does anybody here knows the solution for this issue? By the way, I have Windows Vista Business and there's an error message it's 800 something.
ever since I allowed my new computer (6 mos. old, and running Vista) to download and install the updates available Feb. 12, it has been a horror show. My computer is crashing at least once a day. I've tried going back to various previous restore points, but then, after the "restore process", up pops the message "System retore did not complete successfully. Your computer's system files and settings were not changed. Details: An unspecified error occurred during System Restore. ". In addition I can no longer use task bar tabs in Wordperfect, to, for example change margins. If I do, up on the screen flashes a message saying that I've committed an error, then terminates my word processing screen. Even if I bring up a letter I typed ayear ago and try to change anything, Vista interjects and closes the application.
I'm running the Belarc Advisor for a full inventory of my system and it is telling me that there are a few Critical and Important updates I must have marked as hidden a long time ago. I'm interested in getting a clean bill of health from Belarc and want to install all of the previously missed updates. How can I install one given update without restoring all the hidden updates?
if their updates don't come through after installing sp1? If so, I have windows 32 bit os and it is set to install automatically at 3 am, but my compuer is always asleep then, but when I wake it up in the am, I used to get a windows symbol at the bottom right telling me there is an update avail.! Now, it won't do that after the update to sp1? I just recently changed the time to auto. update at 1 pm, when my computer is turned on, so I am waiting to see if it will do that. I have checked the options and they are set right, I just think that after the install of sp1 my os now does not recognize when there is an update avail.
I have configured my computer to automatically install Windows Important and Recommended Updates. Most Important and Recommended updates are installed automatically. Occasionally when I check Windows Update I get a message that an important update is available and I guess I would have to manually install it. For example, now important update Office Genuine Advantage Notifications is available for me to install. Why are most Windows important updates automatically installed and an occasional Windows important update is made available for me to manually install?
i installed vista 64 bit yesterday on a new macine. its a very erarly copy. i seam to be having isues with the windows updates working. it keeps downloading same files over n over. i had to repair vista start up a couple tijes now. im trying the falowing download of ms website i just hope they right. sp1: Windows6.0-KB936330-X64-wave1.exe sp2: Windows6.0-KB948465-X64.exe if this dosent work
I have had many update problems with windows update (including windows vista sp1) due to "Code 80070246." I have tried many things (not including reinstalling OS)...including Stop error when you try to download updates from Windows Update on a computer that is running Windows Vista: "0x80070246"
However when i tried following those steps, i got to step 6 and the Windows AIK Command Prompt said it "cannot find the path specified." I'm pretty sure i have the same error as that one though, meaning a corrupted GlobalInstallOrder.xml file. I don't think it can find that file because I'm using a 64-bit system. Should i try doing the same thing as the microsoft site except replace Windowswinsxsx86_microsoft-windows-servicingstack_31bf3856ad364e35_6.0.6000.16386_none_07289f4cca5f6990 with Windowswinsxsamd64_microsoft-windows-servicingstack_31bf3856ad364e35_6.0.6000.16386_none_63473ad082bcdac6 or do i have to do something else?
Maybe the problem isn't with GlobalInstallOrder.xml? I'm not really sure what to do.
I am running Windows Vista Home Premium on my laptop. For last few days I have not been able to install windows updates. I get the error with code 80070641. After wandering through different forums and suggested solutions, I followed this path - control panel > system and maintenance > administrative tools > services > windows installer (double clicked and saw that the start-up type is 'Automatic'). When I clicked on the 'Start the service' button in the left panel here, I got the following message:
Windows could not start the windows installer service on local computer. Error 3: The system cannot find the path specified. Can anybody help me resolve this problem and bring the Windows Installer back on track?.....
I can't install Windows updates, every time I try I get this error code - 80246008. All suggestions from Microsoft refers to the BITS service, but this service is not listed in services list, so I really don't know what to do
I have had problems with windows updates and can't install some prerequisite updates (937287) for SP 1 and newer. I don't know why, but I troubleshot this issue for a while about a year ago and then forgot about it. Now some newer updates are available that I can't install (IE8). The machine seems to work ok, but it has been recommended I do a format and do a clean install of vista.
After updating my windows on 11th March 2008, my computer keeps Automatically shut down by itself each time I tried to log in to windows. Before it shuts down, I saw this message on my screen: "Configuring updates: stage 3 of 3. - 0% completed Do not turn of your computer." After a few minutes, my computer will automatically shuts down, and it continuously do the same thing over and over again. The updates are not completed and will always shows "0% completed".
