I have recently installed Delphi 2005 on my PC (Windows 2000).
Due to some compilation problems (other question posted on Experts Exchange), I wanted to apply the patches (update 1 and 2), but none of them "works" : when I run the update, it says that there is no suitable installer for it !
I even uninstalled and reinstalled Delphi 2005, as suggested on Borland site, but nothing, same bad result.

I feel that the error comes because of you need the exact windows installer. e.g. msiinstaller. update it and try installing updates.
