    Everytime i try to install Vista SP2 it errors out giving me error code
    8024200D. I have tried clearing out the Downloads folder in the
    SoftwareDistrobution folder. I have tried running the System update rediness
    toolkit and it didn't find any errors. Im not sure what to do next

    Post about your problem here instead:

    Installation Tips:

    • Disable (a) your anti-virus application, (b) any real-time system
    protections afforded by any anti-spyware applications (except Defender), &
    (c) your third-party firewall (if any) and then (d) enable the Windows
    Firewall before installing or uninstalling Vista SP2.

    • The installation process might take an hour or more. Therefore, if you are
    installing SP2 on a portable computer, make sure that you plug in the power

    • During the installation, your computer will restart several times.
    Therefore, save your work, and exit all open programs before you begin.

    • Vista SP1 is a prerequisite for installing SP2. If you use Windows Update
    or the Automatic Update feature in Windows Vista, you will not be offered
    the option to install SP2 until you first install SP1.

    PA Bear, I believe you helped me with SP1 with the advice of disabling my
    anti virus and firewall program. I kept getting a 'revert' when trying to
    install SP1. This time around I had no problems installing SP2 on two
    different computers once I disabled my anti virus and firewall program

    I don't sit and watch the computer for the entire process; it would be great
    if Windows advised the user to disable certain programs when installing
    Service Packs.

  5. Free unlimited installation and compatibility support is available for
    Windows Vista, but only for Service Pack 2 (SP2). This support for Windows
    Vista Service Pack 2 (SP2) is valid until November 26, 2009. Availability of
    chat or e-mail support differs depending on your geographic location. For
    customers residing in North America, chat and e-mail support is available.

    Go to
    & select appropriate category (e.g., Installation).
