Critical update KB960714 error 0x80070057 on Vista Ultimate x64

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by Daniel Niccoli, Dec 24, 2008.

  1. Hello,

    the installation of the critical update KB960714 fails with error
    0x80070057. All Updates are installed except the mentioned.
    I already renamed the "SoftwareDistribution" folder. Successless.

    Any other hint?

    Are you running Vista or Vista SP1? If the latter, did you install SP1
    manually or via Windows Update? [One assumes you're NOT running Vista SP2
    Beta.]

    If Vista SP1 is NOT installed, see...
