Can't update Windows XP after repair reinstall
by Socks of Doom - 10/7/07 5:08 PM
After doing a repair reinstall on my windows XP computer, I was confronted with the need to reinstall updates. However, when the windows update program goes to install, it automatically switches to the "Failed to install" screen, with all the updates present. This happens with the windows update site as well. This started from the Microsoft Windows Installer 3.1, and persists for every update.
I can successfully install all of these updates manually, though. However, faced with the prospect of installing hundreds of updates (and every update after) by hand, does anyone have any ideas?
