Hi,

I have a problem with Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit - (SP2) in that the updates do not work and never have since first booting the laptop. It's a Dell laptop and very little has been changed.

Please see the attached screen shot.

Thanks,

Lee

Hi,

Try this:

» Click on Start -> Run
» and paste the command below and enter

%SYSTEMROOT%\SYSTEM32\REGSVR32.EXE %SYSTEMROOT%\SYSTEM32\WUAUENG.DLL

Reboot the PC and try Windows Update again.

Regards,


RobMobility.

Did you try this?
1. Click the "Start" Button, click "All programs", and click "Accessories".
2. Right-click "Command Prompt", and click "Run as administrator". Enter the password.
3. Type the following command, and press enter.

REGSVR32 WUAUENG.DLL

You will get a "DllRegisterServer in wuaueng.dll succeeded" window.

4. If that worked then enter the following commands one by one. A success notification will be received after each command.

REGSVR32 WUAPI.DLL
REGSVR32 ATL.DLL
REGSVR32 WUCLTUX.DLL
REGSVR32 WUPS.DLL
REGSVR32 WUPS2.DLL
REGSVR32 WUWEBV.DLL

Try Windows Update again and see if it works.

Start with checking if latest bios is installed for that laptop. Seen in some cases that as an issue.
