That is the message I get from the icon in my Vista tray. When I try to manually check for Windows Updates I get the message that I need to "first install an update for Windows Update". When I try to install that update for Windows Update, I get error code 80070643. There is a lot written about Windows Update error 80070643 having specifically to do with restarting the Office Source Engine for Microsoft Office 2003. HOWEVER, I do not have Microsoft Office 2003 installed on my system and this is not my issue! I am quite fearful at this point that I am vulnerable to all sorts of attacks considering that I haven't updated Vista for about 6 months now. This is not good.
I am updating my computer and I thought it was finish but my computer restarts and I encountered the death blue screen. I can't switch into safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with Command Prompt and Last Known good configuration. I don't know how to solve this problem because I can't get into any of the modes and even I inserted the installation disc I can't still see any repair computer or what. It will just turn to blank screen with space at the upper left after if i will insert the installation disc.
First, a bit of background. I purchased the Vista system in May 2008. Last ran a Windows update on 21 June 2008. Why? Because the first time I ran a Live Update with NIS 2008, my wireless connection broke. So, I decided to not do anything significant, on the internet, until I got rid of NIS 2008 and replaced it with something better, KIS 2008. I did this yesterday. So, I ran a Windows update last night. As it had been 10 months, there were about 379MB of files. Since I am still on dial-up (expect to switch to broadband after I straighten out this update issue, hopefully, next week), I let the critter run overnight.
Alas, when I awoke, I found the 'puter wating for my response to the question of whether I wanted to upgrade from IE 7 to IE 8. Due to the inactivity, I was logged off by my ISP. Today, I ran several updates, until I finally got to an update that indicated that there was only 1 optional update remaining. However, this update will not install. The following are the details.

I wasn't sure where to put this so since thiswas installation. I decided to put it here. I have tried to let it install for 2-3 hours and there hasn't been a single change in the status. It never downloaded with Windows Update and whenI try and do it manually (by downloading) It seems to freexe up and never move again.
For the last week or 2, with the exception of Windows Updates, I can't install or update almost any other program. I have been trying to update , Ad-Aware, no luck. So i uninstalled that and downloaded AVG, but that wouldn't install either.
I TRIED TO INSTALL THE SP 1 UPDATE ON MY LAPTOP AND IT said the service did not install, reverting back changes. Why doesn't it install? I even got that when I tried the beta version, the update wouldn't install.
I have attempted many times and failed to install a security update for Microsoft.NetFramework,version 1.1 service pack 1 (KB29729). I receive a failed to install with a Code 66A. I have tried to find an explanation for the code to no avail. This is listed as an important update for vista but I am stumped as to why it won't install.
Running Vista Home Prem32Bit....will Upgrade to Windows7 32BIT. Ran Microsoft's Windows 7 Advisor....the Report shows under the PROGRAM section, Cisco PEAP MODULE 1.0.13 is not compatible. It shows update is available and when you click on it you go to a Cisco Site....but I couldn't find the download, for that matter, any downloads. I have tried to get help from CISCO, it is impossible. All I wanted was the link to download the Update and all they wanted was a contract number. I don't even know what this program does...it may be the wireless Password Security? It should not be this difficult, I need to update PEAP and I have spent many hours at the Cisco site and Internet searches and have been unable to find the download that will update Cisco PEAP Module to a version that is Compatible with Windows 7. Hopefully someone else has been sucessful and has located the site where I can download and install the Update.........
Went to install the update for DirectX and the installation failed with error messege saying a cab file couldnt be trusted and to make sure Cryptographics was activated to verify the file. Cryptographic services in " services" is set to automatic and started so its running. Running Kaspersky AV, I shut it down when I ran the installer...Attached is the error Mess.
Using a fairly new Dell PC without SP 1 installed, Windows Update does not offer to install SP1, for some reason. Dell Tech Support said that was probably due to the fact that my PC has all the important updates installed, and to offer to install SP1 would be duplicative and might involve downloading duplicative files. But does this make sense? Would I then just keep installing routine important updates, waiting till SP 2 comes out? In any case, I am reluctant to download SP 1 directly from the Microsoft website, as they strongly recommend against doing so.
Every time I run windows update all of the updates download but they don't install properly. When I restart the computer I get the message downloads did not configure properly windows is reconfiguring. I can alway download and install optional updates but anything that is important will not install. I get a variety of error codes. Has anyone had problems with windows update on vista?
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.
Windows6.0-KB917607-x86 does not install. No problems with administrator's pw. But after it runs comes back with the message "Some updates did not Install". No number or anything else. Second, Win Update keeps giving me error 80070002. I have tried all the suggestions I found in the net, but nothing works. The problem is still there. Thirdly, I tried to manually update IE7 to IE8 and also told me the same thing, it fails to update.
Last week, I was unable to install Microsoft updates. They failed every time. I overcame this by doing a system restore to an earlier date before the previous updates. They then installed. However I was left with Microsoft Net framework 3.5 Service pack 1 which failed to install. I went to Microsoft download site and downloaded from there. The my troubles started, in that now on opening my machine it tries to configure these updates and says on screen "configuring 3 of 3" gets to 87% then closes automatically and restarts the process overagain. I tried to open in "safemode" but exactly the same thing happens. Is there anything I can do to stop this, or am I forced in to doing a restore to factory settings, or I note that I have another option of "last known good configuration (advanced)". As I am not advanced this causes me concern.
I have numerous problems installing service pack 1 on my Dell Laptop running Vista Home Premium. I succeded in installing it first time, but when I next ran windows update and rebooted, after the logon screen I just got a black screen with the mouse pointer and nothing else. I restored from an image, did all the updates, then installed the SP1 - same problem. Now I restored image, and applied SP1 (without running windows update first) and have the same problem. No problems on my home built desktop, just the laptop. Really pissed with Vista just now.
I try to install SP1 from the windows update or from the stand alone version. I keep getting this code " 8024200D " from the windows update. Its the only update I see on the Windows Update available. The laptop is running Vista Home Premium. I ran the sfc /scannow and it didn't find anything wrong . I also ran the memory test with memtest 86+ and found no errors. Is there a way to fix this?
I received an error: Error details: Code 57A. I tried multiple times to install, all with the same error. I did try downloading the update to my desktop, and install with the option "run as administrator...no luck. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium.
As far as I can determine, this update (released 22Oct08) does not work, at least not with Windows Vista Home Premium. I had update 7 running, and got an update notification for Release 10 earlier today. Downloaded and installed the update, tried the Java test page, Firefox (both 3.0.3 and today's Minefield beta-test for Firefox 3.1) hung. Tried the update in IE7, that, too, hung.
Went to Control Panel, clicked on the Java icon, had some problems opening it; when it did finally open, I went into Advanced and found that Update 10 was not recognizing IE. Opened IE, redownloaded the off-line update, to see if that worked; answer is, no, it still did not recognize IE. Back to Java, found the off-line installed for Update 7, removed 10, reinstalled 7; Java works once again. In the midst of this aggravation, trying to figure out what the problem was, I did find one link to an article that said Update 10 had been delayed due to some unspecified problem. Seems to me that, at least for Vista Home Premium, there is still at least one unspecified problem with Update 10.
Microsoft Update was first released a few years ago for Windows XP and Server 2003 as a great way to update all of your Microsoft software installed on your PC. Not only would it update Windows, but it would also update Microsoft Office. Are you a Microsoft Outlook user? If so, Microsoft Update would even download updated junk mail signatures when they are released.
In Windows Vista the new Windows Update application is no longer web-based. Microsoft has built-in the old Microsoft Update functionality into the new interface but you need to turn it on before you can use it. Follow these steps to turn on updates for other Microsoft applications: ...
I understand that Vista SP2 RC update has to be uninstalled before installing SP2 RTM update(when bcomes available). Does 5the Windows Update automatically uninstall SP2 RC update or does it has to be done manually?
The last time an update was installed was in January..since the next time i was offered an update, Windows Update or any of the programs that use windows update fail to update. Also i can't download the updates manually..standalone msu installers also dont work.. windows defender, IE8 installations also fail to update. And unfortunately i have deleted the recent system restore checkpoints before i knew about this problem. Windows Update gives error 80070002, i have tried the "solution" to delete temp update files, and all other solutions i could find on the internet. Windows defender gives the same error.
The updates can be downloaded from windows update, but cannot be download (not even manually in .msu package) I also lost many shortcut files of MS Office (the icon turned white and they lost their target). Some shortcuts of 3rd party programs are also lost (which were supposed to be in c:windowsinstallerlabla I have Windows Vista Home Basic with SP1 (SP1 came with the ssytem when i bought it). This is very weird. I have no other choice than to reformat drive and use recovery disk.
