  1. Hi,

    The Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1 will not install from Microsoft
    Updates. When I click on the reason for falilure it says "Installation
    Failure Error Code: 0x66A". How do I fix this so I can install the service

    E:\>set /a c = 0x66A
    E:\>net helpmsg %c%

    The upgrade patch cannot be installed by the Windows Installer service
    because the program to be upgraded may be missing, or the upgrade
    patch may update a different version of the program. Verify that the
    program to be upgraded exists on your computer and that you have
    the correct upgrade patch.

    Pick the right one? ; )
