    I did a full install of Vista Ultimate. I installed the Texas Hold'em card
    game and it worked fine. I had to reformat my drive and reinstall everything.
    However I was NOT offered any Ultimate Extras!!! Where can I find and install
    the Texas Hold'em extra? thanks

  2. Texas Hold'em is available for Windows Ultimate by visiting the Windows Update web site.

    Carey,
    Do you have a specific link? I went to the Windows Update page and it
    doesn't show any available updates. thanks

    And you're sure you don't have Hold'em in your game explorer?

  7. You have to check for updates in the Windows Update explorer (Start > All
    Programs > Windows Update > click "Check for updates" link), and will
    download it as an optional update along with Bitlocker Encryption.

    Carey,
    Still shows No update extras available. I also lost the 15 language packs
    that were offered. thanks

    I remember some people having this problem when it was first released.
    Maybe a failed download and now WU thinks it's installed?

  11. Are you sure you installed Vista Ultimate and is it activated?

    Change your update address from "Microsoft update" to "Windows update".

  13. I suspect you are not running Vista Ultimate, possibly Home Premium.

    Whether or not his copy is activated is irrelevant.
    If you have the Ultimate version and are still in the grace period,
    you can download/install/use the Ultimate extras.

    Vista Ultimate and it is activated. Like I said it worked when I originally
    installed it. It was when I had to do a complete reinstall that the extras
    weren't offered. thanks

    So I should do a reinstall and see if that corrects the problem? thanks

    Believe me, I went through the same thing for a few minutes. You need to
    change where you're updating.

    Carey,
    It's possible that the lack of updates in Windows Update is due to use of the pre-release Ultimate Launch Event version and not RTM.

    That would be a last resort. Is there any possibility you accidentally
    chose to hide the update? Since you say you also lost the language packs.
