Vista SP2

  sloan_5 29 Dec 09

Hi, I'm running Vista Business SP1 32 bit operating system on a Sony laptop. In the years I've had the machine, I've only been able to get Windows to update once, the rest of the time I get an error message Code 8024402C

Will installing SP2 help this problem? Which version of SP2?? none of them seem to refer to 32 bit operating systems...

cheers all

re updates I went through long and involved hoops including extensive email exchanges with Microsoft help people, during which time I managed to update once.

after that I just gave up, kept fingers crossed that I wouldn't pick up any bugs too terrible.

I'm more interested to know whether SP2 will solve the whole problem, or is it designed for 64 bit systems and so not for mine???

well I see the right version of SP2 now, thanks for that.

we'll see if I managed to install and if it solves the problem...
