Can’t Find Vista SP1 on Windows Update?

April 2, 2008 – 7:28 PM

Microsoft has released a Knowledge Base article to help users who are having problems getting Vista SP1 from the Windows Update site.  Here’s a list of possible causes they have come up with so far:

  • You are already running Windows Vista SP1.
  • Windows Vista SP1 has not been released for the language of the language pack that you have installed.
  • Windows Service Pack Blocker Tool is used to block the delivery of Windows Vista SP1 from Automatic Updates or from Windows Update.
  • You tried to install Windows Vista SP1, and the installation failed with a known inconsistency in the file or registry structure.
  • A hardware device driver or device software was problematic when you updated to Windows Vista SP1.
  • You have installed a prerelease version of Windows Vista SP1, and you must uninstall the prerelease version, or start with a new installation of Windows Vista.
  • You used the third-party program vLite to configure the system, and you may have removed required system components that have to be available for Windows Vista SP1 to be installed.
