    Vista SP2 will not install

    I have tried to install SP2 in order to try and fix dll errors on start up and have tried everything else... it installs up to a certain point and then says i do not have SP1 when i do have SP1 installed. Can anyone suggest anything?

    Try to install SP1 and see what happens. Could be corrupt.

    Thanks but its very odd, the service pack 2 is in my installed updates list however the first is not. There must be some corruption here

    Apparently, i thought SP1 was needed in order to install SP2. And i do not see why an error screen informed me that SP2 could not install because i did not have SP1 if it had in fact installed. Ah well thankyou

    Shows SP1, then when i download the suggested upgrade and attempt to install it, it says i do not have SP1.
    When i attempted to uninstall whatever SP i had on here, i could only find one that is described as service pack 2

    There are programs like Office that often have SPs. Are we sure that the SP2 is for Vista?
