Hi there,

I have a Sony VAIO laptop with Vista Home Premium, and I cannot, for the life of me, get this update to install. The update is the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.5 SP1, Windows Vista SP2, and Windows Server 2008 SP2 Update for x64-based Systems (KB982536).

This has been an ongoing issue for quite some time now, and even despite extensive emails with Microsoft's tech support, I can't seem to get the problem resolved. Previous and similar updates download and install automatically without any issue whatsoever, but this update continues to fail with error code 800B0100.

I have tried disabling and enabling firewalls, antivirus software, all that sort of thing; even downloading the update and trying to manually install it didn't help. Perhaps someone can help me out.

Thanks!

Microsoft's solution is "go to MS online store and purchase Windows 7" :D

My solution is get a Mac next time. I will
