Windows Vista SP1 Prerequisite Releases

Windows Vista SP1 Prerequisite Releases

Hi all,

 

This week we're releasing two more prerequisites for Windows Vista Service Pack 1 that will be coming later this quarter.  We wanted to let you know about them because they are both marked as Important updates (and they’re a little different than usual).

 

KB938371 is a multi-component update that supports the successful install of SP1 and allows it to be uninstalled.  KB937287 updates the Windows Vista “Servicing Stack.”  Both updates (required before SP1 will be offered via Windows Update) are being made available now to reduce the number of reboots and make installation of the service pack easier.

 

Even if you're not ready to install the service pack once it's released, you'll want to install these updates because they'll help increase performance and reduce failures for the installation of other updates.

 

Thanks,

 

MU Team

  • Back in February, we posted about the release of a couple of prerequisites for Windows Vista Service

  • Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) kann nicht installiert werden

  • It seems that this release caused a problem on my Vista HP. Since it was installed my USB mouse (HID compliant mouse) stopped working. The touchpad (PS/2 compatible mouse) on my VAIO laptop also stopped working. Windows keeps finding new hardware but it never installs the drivers for these two devices. I've found other Vista users complaining about this problem on Technet forums. Some users also complain about the keyboard not working...

    Hope you can fix this soon.

  • Back in February you reported the release of two prerequisites for Windows Vista Service Pack 1. They were KB938371 and KB937287. I have successfully installed KB937287 and KB949939 that is mentioned in this blog. I don't see any mention of any fix for KB9378371. A search of the net leads me to believe that there many Vista users that can't install this update. I'm one of them as it won't install on my Windows Vista Home Premium system. It fails with an error code of 80070246.

    So far I've deleted the download cache and tried the download version. I've been hoping to see a fixed KB938371 released but so far I'm still waiting.

  • This is old news, but if you have the old software it is still usefull for me.
