  2. Search for any files which the update changed which contain that code (and perhaps for 2095 too.)
    E.g. limit your search to files which changed on the *day* the update was done, then sort the results
    by Date Modified. Then scroll to the time that the update was done. Drag any likely looking files
    to an open Notepad window for inspection and manual finding (e.g. F3 or Ctrl-F), e.g. to see the context
    of the error code in any diagnostic files the update created.

    Good luck

    Just had this error with SP1. I had being doing a bulk update and SP1 was
    finally offered only to fail with this error.

    Restarting and then re-applying the update worked for me. My suspicion is
    that this is the "another installation is in progress" error caused when an
    app needs to reboot before it completes.

  7. It's always best to begin a new thread about /your/ problems, diakon.

    If you're attempting to install Vista SP1 and getting this 800F092F error,
    has Windows Update offered you Vista SP1 or are you attempting to install it

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed? What
    anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)? What third-party firewall
    (if any)?


    The update is not installed successfully, you receive a message, and the
    computer restarts when you try to install an update in Windows Vista

    Error message when you try to install Windows Vista Service Pack 1:
    "Installation was not successful" or "An internal error occurred while
    installing the service pack"

    Unlimited installation and compatibility support for Vista SP1 is available
    at no charge through 18 Mar-09

    Hey, don't know if anyone is having this error still, but I had it and
    a Google search led me to this Microsoft support page. It would seem you
    can sometimes get this error with Vista SP1 or 2 or other Microsoft
    products if you try to install them at the same time as or just after
    (without rebooting) other updates. Here's the info I found and a link to
    the page, hope this helps some people in here:

    Known Issue
    If you install this update through Windows Update, you may receive
    error 800F082F.

    This update cannot be installed with other updates. Therefore, if you
    previously installed other updates without a restart, and then you try
    to install this update, you may receive error 800F082F. To resolve this
    issue, restart your computer, and then install this update again.

    hi folks: I solved the problem this error code refers to on two PCs I was
    prepping by opening Office 2007 Preinstall, trial keying them and registering
    them. Enabled WinUpdate to pump Office updates. Then SP2 went over fine (and
    I was back on with loads more WinUpdating again)!
    I have had similar problems trying to multi-update thru IE8 - it doesn't
    work without opening the app and clicking thru the first-time prep wizzard.
    Hope this helps

    Reinstall :)
