Okay so I'm installing "XP mode" on a lot of our computers here at our facility. However on my laptop where it's very vital, it's not allowing my to install the Windows Virtual PC application which is update "Windows6.1-KB958559-x64-RefreshPkg" or windows update KB958559.

It installs, then it requires a restart. When it restarts it fails to install and reverts the changes. I can do this on about every other computer in our domain besides my laptop..and I have no clue why. Nothing is really different about it, it's just windows 7 x64 like most of the other machines.

I went to eventvwr and I saw this message:


Windows update  could not be installed because of error 2359302 "" (Command line: ""C:\Windows\system32\WUSA.exe" "C:\Users\*Snip*\AppData\Local\Temp\\{93fac71d-7d87-47d8-b718-bd2ad7444064}.msu" /quiet /norestart")


Any help to get this update up and going for me would be great! I really need to get XP mode going on my laptop.

This is using it on Windows 7 SP1 though (Windows 7 is our base non-virtual install), we're doing this: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx

I'm having a problem installing the Windows Virtual PC on the windows 7 machine..

Fixed the problem!

Found out from this source

Particularly I needed to do what this person said:

Hi,
 
Based on my research, I would like to answer you that the maximum number of network filter drivers in Windows 7 is 14. However, it is hard coded to allow 14 filter drivers. By default, the number is 8. To view the number or modify the number, please access the following registry key:
 
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network\MaxNumFilters
 
Usually, the network filter drivers are listed in the Network Connection’s Properties. Also, it can be located by some third party programs, such as antivirus program.
 
Thanks,
Novak
