Windows Vista Service Pack 2 installation failed error code: 80070490

Post by smayracing92 on Mon 26 Jul 2010, 10:03 am

Hello,

I am having trouble with my Vista service pack 2 update. It seems to have downloaded, but fails when installing. I have had other updates download fine and install sucessfully but this one always fails. I believe it's been trying to install this update for some time, but i just noticed it recently. The details of the failure are as follows:


Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (KB948465)

Installation date: ‎7/‎24/‎2010 10:40 PM

Installation status: Failed

Error details: Code 80070490

Update type: Important

Windows Vista Service Pack 2 is an update to Windows Vista that includes all of the updates that have been delivered since Service Pack 1, as well as support for new types of hardware and emerging hardware standards. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer. This update is provided to you and licensed under the Windows Vista License Terms.

When I follow the links at the bottom of the report for help, the first one is a dead end that doesn't seem to apply to my situation and the second leads me to an option of downloading a "standalone" version of sp2. I don't know if I should try this or not. I'll copy some details:
