"Some Updates Were Not Installed"


J

Jim H.

I just built a new XP machine with a brand new copy of XP Pro, SP2 and went
today to Microsoft to do an Automatic Update. It downloaded 90 updates but
then loaded zero.

I got this message that "Some updates were not installed." I couldn't find
anything about this on Microsoft's site.

What's up?

If automatic updates was turned on the system may have already been
installing the updates at the same time. Check the update history and see.

Colin, update history shows that only the following updates have been
installed:

Windows XP - Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool (KB892130)
Windows XP - Microsoft Windows Installer 3.1

Nothing else will load.

I found the solution to my problem and am posting it here for other's benefit.

Updates are not installed successfully from Windows Update, from Microsoft
Update, or by using Automatic Updates after you repair a Windows XP
installation:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144

Also applies to clean installs, upgrade installs, and Recovery installs.
