    CaptainSpeleo, I glad that worked for you.
    I guess we will have to use that method unless abbodi1406 would like to try to figure out the problem.
    I know he is busy with other things but maybe he will get a moment to check into it.
    I am appreciative for all he has done.

    No it most probably isn't. While the updates themselves show as installed, many (especially newer) packages inside them are applicable only to Server 2008 SP2 (build 6003) and are skipped on Vista SP2 (6002). Just something to consider.

    I probably should have said:
    "This install of Windows Vista Business SP2 64-bit (with post-April 2017 Windows Server 2008 64-bit updates integrated into it) is now up to date to March 2021."
    ;)

    well, i now dualboot windows vista and 7, i tried to get the latest updates for windows vista but it didnt work, i installed the patch and then i clicked on windows update, and it said it was the latest but i knew it wasnt because i clicked on installed updates and there were only a few updates, i started checking for updates and it kept checking infinitely, i dont know how to fix it. I would appreciate if some of you helped me
