Description of the System Update Readiness Tool for Windows Vista, for
Windows Server 2008, and for Windows 7
When the download completes close *all* open programs and browsers.
Then run the .msu as you would an .exe.
It will take some time to run. On a VPC 25 GB .vhd of Vista SP2 it took
a tad over 17 minutes to complete it's run.
It will create similar logs at
WINDOWS\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.log <--- this log
WINDOWS\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.persist.log <--- this log
It also creates a subfolder in the WINDOWS directory named CheckSUR
