Updating to vista 64
auth=1 "Resetting the entire Windows Update Component manually" I did this using the command prompt as outlined in the article.
I used file "Windows6.0-KB947821-v35-x86.msu" and the resulting "Check SUR.log" file said there were no remaining unfixed errors. Reran the Fix It tool and it still detects error code 0X80070057 None of these bright ideas worked. However, when I attempted to install it stated update not for my system.
Being a retired EE digital signal processor, I know the complexities of code contributed by hundreds if not thousands of SW engineers to build and maintain an OS.
I'm curious what this magic update fixed for Kelly B56 and me.
You can do a fresh install, however if you want to upgrade, it needs to be bit for bit x86 - x86 or x64 - x64 You have to either #1.) Be on Vista SP 1, not SP2 for this to work with ease or #2.) Select the option to download and install all updates during installation.
There is an error with Vista SP2 which causes this upgrade to fail even if you are using x64 for your current OS.
I must have spent 30 hours trying various fixes without success!Regardless, my humble gratitude for your assistance!OS: Windows Vista 32 Bit Home Premium I am unable to install recent Windows Vista updates because the updater hangs at "Checking for updates".Is there a different comparable update for 64 bit OS or is there a different problem?Having the same problem and pursuing similar solutions with out success, I tried downloading the recommended update for my Vista Home Premium SP2 64 bit OS.
