You are saying that Greenhillmaniac incorrectly labeled a 7.4 installer as a 7.6 installer at his repository? I’m not sure if that even matters, since Windows Update hasn’t worked for Vista since August 2020. I only mentioned it because your screenshot in post #1 shows a 6-year-old program urging you to install an 11-year-old version of Windows Update Agent that is no longer available from Microsoft. I’m sure that wither 3 would like to help you, so good luck!this version of windows update agent v7.4.7600.226 differs from that required 7.6.7600.256
Welcome back to this lonely Vista forum @Volume Z!Microsoft Update Agent 3.0 installs 7.6.7600.256 just fine.
I don’t see any mention of Windows Vista at your link, but hopefully you know something that I don’t.Important: If you install a language pack after you install this update, you must reinstall this update. Therefore, we recommend that you install any language packs that you need before installing this update...
The Greek language pack was installed in post 1, sentence 1, so I’m afraid you did misunderstand his problem. I understood it, but have no idea how to solve it in the year 2023. Do you happen to have a copy of Ex Brits’ ISO lying around?As noted in post 12, the language pack is now installed. Unless I misunderstand, his problem is solved.
That is precisely why it might be better for someone who wants to install a language pack! It’s not like oodles of patches from previous decades will make Vista a secure OS in 2023 anyway.I think I have it but it doesn't have all the updates.
Windows Update Agent is very likely not the only update that must be reinstalled: There might be several/many. Please read post #1 if you can find the time, including the screenshot that the OP provided.Important: If you install a language pack after you install this update, you must reinstall this update. Therefore, we recommend that you install any language packs that you need before installing this update.
Corruption of the recovery partition is very likely after 15 years, so run sfc /scannow from an elevated command prompt.This computer had a recovery partition where windows vista RTM SP0 Home Premium was installed.
What problems? What method did you use to acquire “all the updates”?...When I installed these two service packs above, the problems started and after I did all the updates from windows update.
