Re: Error Code 80073712 - Windows Vista Update SP2
Hi, roseire.

Don't forget that Google (and now, Bing) is your friend.

Bing gets me nearly 10,000 hits on "80073712". The second one is the thread
at http://forums.techarena.in/windows-update/758930.htm, and it seems to
have a solution to this problem. That might be a good place to start.
