can't get "Microsoft Update" installed, for Exchange Anti-spam upd
I have researched this issue and done many steps to try to get the Microsoft
Update installed. Currently, only Windows update exists. On the update page,
the system detects there's a newer update version; I download it, the copying
files process continues, then I get the error:"The website has encountered a
problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view". I have installed
the recommended "Dial-a-fix" program, and done literally every step possible
in that program. I have rebooted this Windows 2003 R2 server. (it has every
update and service pack available). I have re-registered the DLL's. I have
flushed my Software Distribution database. I have completely erased my
Software Distribution data, and made a new file. I have turned off Pop-up
blocker, flushed my cookies, my I.E. cache, cleared temp files, enabled
Automatic UPdates, restarted the service, and run 2 programs to test if
ActiveX is working as it should. All tests for ActiveX show as it working
perfectly. Please advise what else I might do to get the advanced "Microsoft
Update to install and operate correctly. Thanking you in advance, -Allen

RE: can't get "Microsoft Update" installed, for Exchange Anti-spam
I have the answer to this in my original text. There are two types of
updates; the default "Windows Update" and the enhanced "Microsoft Update".
When I click on the "NEW! GET Microsofot Update Today! Go> button, I get the
prompt, "Try Microsoft Update today". I click on Start now, and the download
starts and ends succuessfully. The copying process runs 100% then I get the
error: The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you
are trying to view

Re: can't get "Microsoft Update" installed, for Exchange Anti-spam
I have another almost identical DC/GC Exchange server like this server. I
looked there at the registry entries for the wuauserv service.
(HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Wuauserv) . On this problem computer
(server3) I found an EXTRA entry there for a key, called Syswow64, with a
value of 1. The good server didn’t have this entry there.

I figured that somehow an entry got entered in by some process that told
this service to use the 32-bit version for updates. (or do I have it
backwards?).
I immediately removed this duplicate entry, the service immediately started
up, and the enhanced version 6 of “Microsoft Update” then ran perfectly, and
installed as designed

Re: can't get "Microsoft Update" installed, for Exchange Anti-spam
Does Windows 2003 R2 mean Windows Server 2003 SP2? Is it a 64-bit machine?

Does or did the machine update via WSUS usually?

Did you open a free support incident or otherwise contact MS Support?

Re: can't get "Microsoft Update" installed, for Exchange Anti-spam
The "R2" means Release 2, the enhanced version or Windows 2003 Server. It has
all the lastest Service Packs and updates. As you know, Exchange 2007 runs
on a 64-bit machine, so yes, this is a 64-bit OS.
I don't use WSUS, only the Microsoft Update version 6, which now works. I
did contact MS support, but I was able to resolve it on my own, per the
previous posting info.
