RE: 80240016 Install Error
I've also got this same error message. I'm running Vista Business with
Service Pack 1, an Intel Core 2 duo, firstname.lastname@example.orgGhz, 2Gb Ram, 32Bit. The
machine is a Compaq nx9420 laptop.
I've tried running the command prompt as Admin using "net stop wuauserv" and
"net start wuauserv" without effect - same problem as before.
Windows Help is useless here and the update will not proceed... help!
