Can't install XP SP 2: "You chose to skip all available updates"
Posted on 2004-10-17
I've checked a variety of support sites and can't come up with an answer for this one, even though it seems pretty basic. When I go to Windows Update and click on the link to install SP2, it immeditately tells me "Updates were unable to be successfully installed. You chose to skip all available updates, so no changes were made to your computer."
This is nonsense, since I have had automatic updates switched on well before SP 2 was released, set to download and install automatically at 12 noon every day. I haven't a clue how Windows Update thinks I told it to skip all updates.
Anyone know how I can somehow tell it to start accepting all updates again? The Microsoft support site (general and for SP2) has no information on this -- that I could find, anyway.
