Re: error code: 0x66A
Hi, ive tired all of the below and all i get is "The upgrade patch cannot be
intalled by the windows installer service because the program to be upgraded
maybe missing, or the upgrade patch may update a different verison of the
program. Verify that the program to be upgraded exists on your computer and
that you have the correct upgrade patch"
No matter what i do i cant get rid of the update.
