    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

    I don't believe that there is anything fundamentally wrong with choosing directly the option 3 for both Vista and Server 2008 Updates. Keep in mind though that many of the updates are the same and presented under both Vista and Server 2008. What I did was to choose first the Vista updates (deselected everything under Server 2008) let them install, rebooted and let the Trusted Installer do its own thing. The next time that it offered me updates the list for both Vista and Server 2008 groups were updated. So you can either go with choices #1 and then #2 or directly 3# but don't mix-install updates from both groups. From the number 195 out of 327 that you say I guess that the system froze when finished the Vista important updates and then tried the Server 2008 ones.

    Edit: I saw somewhere that there is a limit of how many updates you can do at once. Because of a weird bug you can't do more than 150 at once apparently. I don't know if this is indeed the case but it did hang on me as well when i tried to do all the 172 initial updates at once with no restart. Imagine I was doing them offline using the .msu files from the catalog.

    Hey Captain!
    I have seen it but not test it. I will try it out. I am working on my own on an offline way to do the updates. On top of the Vista SHA WUC patch. Nothing fancy but I have downloaded from the microsoft catalog all the updates that showed up and now I am experimenting on the optimal sequence to install them. Anyway I guess I should move the the other thread :) Thank you!

    You're welcome.
    It sounds like you're creating a lot more work for yourself than you need to.
