Windows Vista Service Pack 2 Installation Error
I keep trying to install the Service Pack 2 for Vista and I keep getting an
error code (409). It keeps telling me it's an unknown error. Any help or
advice?

That seems right, whether the code is hexadecimal or already decimal:

<cmd_output OS="XPsp3">
E:\>set /a c = 0x409
1033
E:\>net helpmsg %c%
1033 is not a valid Windows network message number.

More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 3871.


E:\>net helpmsg 409
409 is not a valid Windows network message number.

More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 3871.

</cmd_output>


> Any help or advice?



Get some context for your error codes by searching for them in the logs
that the update creates or updates.

How to troubleshoot Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 service pack
installation issues
[Errors 0x80070002; 0x8007000D; 0x80073712; 0x800B0100; & 0x8024200D]

If you're having problems installing SP2 *via Windows Update*, post about
your problem here instead:
http://social.answers.microsoft.com/...stawu/threads/

Post any other Vista SP2-related questions in a Vista-specific newsgroup
(e.g., Vista General) or either of these 2 forums:
http://www.answers.microsoft.com/windows;
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/...stasp/threads/

Installation Tips:

• Your computer will restart several times during the installation process:
Make certain you've saved your work and closed all open applications before
beginning the install.

• Disable (1) your anti-virus application, (2) any real-time system
protections afforded by any anti-spyware applications (except Defender), &
(3) your third-party firewall (if any) and then (4) enable the Windows
Firewall before installing or uninstalling Vista SP2.

• The installation process can take an hour or more: If you're installing
SP2 on a portable computer, make sure that you plug-in the power cord and
have the battery inserted into its bay.

• Vista SP1 is a prerequisite for installing SP2. If you use Windows Update
or the Automatic Update feature in Windows Vista, you will not be offered
the option to install SP2 until you first install SP1.

Free unlimited installation and compatibility support is available for
Windows Vista, but only for Service Pack 2 (SP2). This support for Windows
Vista Service Pack 2 (SP2) is valid until November 26, 2009. Availability of
chat or e-mail support differs depending on your geographic location. For
