Windows Vista Business still don't not patched with SP1 via auto-mises to update or manual updates

Our laptop Fujitsu is installed with Windows Vista Business. We have been used for about 1 year more, get the updates via automatic updates.

I read that Vista has up to SP2. But check the details of the system shows that no service pack has been applied. So I trigger the update via IE-> tools-> Windows Update. He said that "no important updates available.

I think that when you apply SP1, it will move from IE7 to IE8. So, we still have IE7.

Why the service pack is not available for our case?

Kind regards

A1. Yes.

A2. You are 'safe' for now, as long as the computer kept fully patched to Windows Update otherwise. That being said, there will come a time in the not-too-distant that a computer without SP1 installed will not offer still updates all founded. ~ Robear Dyer (PA Bear) ~ MS MVP (that is to say, mail, security, Windows & Update Services) since 2002 ~ WARNING: MS MVPs represent or work for Microsoft

  • Window vista business 32 bit auto update not install SP1

    I have Window vista business 32 bit on Sony Vaio laptop. My automatic update of the window is on, a lot of updates were installed, I can't find the SP1.  I checked the updates, saw "the view update history" but can't find SP1.  Basic information system shows no service pack. 'Winver' shows Version 6.0 (6000 building). All other window updates have been installed except "Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express edition service pack 3 (KB955706) who is still unable to install, do not know for what reason." I guess that there is no link between the failed SQL and SP1. It is after a complete reinstall of Vista 3-4 days back.

    Prior to the relocation is in that the original version, Vista SP1 was installed automatically by the Update window.
    I wonder if SP1 is already installed, but is not displayed or should I download and install it manually.


    Thank you. I was able to install SP1 and SP2 after the changes and the process you described.
    Thank you very much. goyalvimal

  • The product key you entered will not work with this edition of Windows Vista. You must run the Windows Vista Setup program or enter a Windows Vista business product key

    Product key bad for the wrong version?


    Recently the computer in business inherited from a friend, very fast and very good. Regardless of the operating system no - geniue, is with Vista Business, while the thumbnail of authentication is Vista Ultimate. I took a screenshot of what it says when I put Vista Ultimate product key: (it does not appear if you are unable to use it: P)

    He said: "the product key you entered will not work with this edition of Windows Vista. You must run the Windows Vista Setup program or enter a Windows Vista Business product key."

    How would the installation of Windows Vista? My files would still be there when you need him? My drivers would still exist? No matter what to get deleted or become unusable? He would return to SP1? Any response is welcome.

    You can order form of the manufacturer's recovery media.

    The reason why the system as non-authentique shows currently is using a license in Volume KMS - these licenses must be re-activated at least every 6 months by connecting to the KMS user license activation server.

    It will require a reformat and reinstall whatever you do, unless you can connect to the KMS - Volume media server cannot be upgraded under normal conditions.

  • Windows Vista Business ed. reformat - my computer detects the network but will not connect to Internet

    Can someone help me, I can't reformat a laptop compact with a windows vista Business edition OS. I was wondering if I could use the recovery partition or do I have to use an installation CD. And by the way, just to give you a head I'm just a beginner and badly needs help. the problem I had is I get a strong signal for my WiFi, but again it is not connect to the internet it connects sometimes but then after I reboot my phone it comes back with the same problem, it connects to the internet, but I detect my network, someone told me to just reformat the entire system. I hope someone can give me a help step by step on how to do it. and also I do not see the product key for my system. your help would be greatly appreciated thanks

    • You have problems with programs
    • Error messages
    • Recent changes to your computer
    • What you have already tried to solve the problem


    Formatting/reinstalling is overkill. A bit like buying a new car because you have a flat tire.

    To reinstall, you can use either the volume of recovery or the recovery disc, both should work pretty much the same. In general, the product key is located on the system like a sticker (on laptops usually on the bottom). If you can't find yours, you should contact the provider or your network administrator (and in fact, if there is a working system, you should contact them before doing anything).

    Before you do this right, you can try this: click Start and type CMD. Right click on the menu entry that appears and choose "Run as Administrator". Click on continue in the UAC prompt. From the command line, run:



    ipconfig / renew

    Allow everyone to finish (return to the command line) before proceeding to the next. When you are finished, close the command prompt. See if that helps with your problems of connection.

  • PC with Windows Vista Business OEMAct COA of second hand


    I just bought a PC that has a Microsoft COA license sticker attached to it for "Windows Vista Business OEMAct" of second hand. It came without a HARD drive, so I installed my own and want to make sure that the key on the PC is still valid? If I can get my hands on a Vista disk, probably, I can install windows with this key and everything will be fine?
    The question I have, is that I can then upgrade to Windows 8 for the $39,99 deal? I don't see why not?


    You must use the key to see if it is still valid. There is no public list kept.

    Hadou no reason why it would not be valid as long as you can not transfer OEM licenses which they were installed on the original machine.

    You can contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of recovery disks.

    They should do this for a small fee.

    Some manufacturers have more available Vista recovery disks.

    If this happens, you may need to try this instead:

    You can also borrow and use a Microsoft Vista DVD, which contains the files for the different editions of Vista (Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate) must be installed. The product key on your computer / Laptop box determines what Edition is installed.

    Other manufacturers recovery DVDs are should not be used for this purpose.

    And you need to know the version of 'bit' for Vista, as 32-bit and 64-bit editions come on different DVDs

    Here's how to do a clean install of Vista using a DVD of Vista from Microsoft:

    "How to do a clean install and configure with a full Version of Vista '

    And once the operating system is installed, go to your computer manufacturer's website and get the latest drivers for your particular model or laptop computer.

    And phone Activation may be necessary when you use the above installation method.

    "How to activate Vista normally and by Activation of the phone '

  • Windows Vista business, suspended installation of update 10 of 10

    The date is 09/15/11

    Last night I was invited to be updated.
    The update installation started with 1 of the 10 with the standard message, "Please do not feed where unplug your machine."
    Last night I went to bed with updated installation 10 10 always on the screen. The blue icon was still running as the white dots incremented after the "10 out of 10.
    This morning, it's still sitting on the same blue screen icon still spinning - growing points.
    Anyone can shed some light on this. If I stop and restart, which is perhaps my only option, what do I do if I can't restart or you end up in safe mode?
    Thanks in advance.

    Don't want to seem ungrateful, but it was not useful. I ain't under Windows Vista Business, Windows 7 and my PC has not frozen during a restart after installing updates, it froze during updates. Thanks anyway. I rebooted and was lucky to start normally.

  • Tecra M9 crashes when the apparatus or the lid close on Windows Vista Business


    I have a Tecra M9 with Windows Vista business, and when I close the lid on the laptop that Windows puts on hold. When I open the lid, although wakes up the computer screen but it crashes.

    Even if I have the machine on the docking station when I disconnect the machine crashes.
    Any ideas? Any help much appreciated.



    I don't know what you mean in crashes, but I know that this can happen after the standby/hibernation mode, that this sound card is not recognized correctly. To resolve this problem, you must install the hotfix for Microsoft Vista (937077 KB) on the Microsoft network site:

    Just a question: have you noticed this problem since the first day or after a few days of use?

  • Use of the filesystem in Windows Vista Business

    I had a neX61 in November last with Windows Vista Business and 120 GB disk space. I installed MS Office Standard 2007 and Visio, the disk of 2 months following its use grew much greated than the volume of data that I have placed on the system. I ran all the checks planned and all is good - no problems.

    However I could not always represent 35 + concerts. I downloaded a tool on the web that says basically structure sizes and directory trees and showed that I should have 35 gigs of spare, i.e. If I added the directory sizes, there was a huge amount still free. I couldn't get to the bottom of this.

    One day, Outlook 2007 crashed and rebuilds itself, when it rebuilt, suddenly space reappeared. Afterwards, I ran all the diagnosis of MS Outlook with no significant results. During the next 6 weeks, which space recovery file again gone so now its 50Gigs I losyt. I decided to uninstall Outlook, but so far it has not recovered from my disk space. Before that I use a hard reinstall of Vista Business Windoze of stuff over there?

    See you soon


    Right now, you have identified the exact problem, hell, I didn't even know this has the value automativcally of backup, the first 25Gigs swallowed the backup, then the next 4 subsequent in swallowed another 5 concerts a moment. Unfortunately, I had several images vmware which did not help matters.

    Thanks man, I owe you a virtual beer.

  • stepupgrade windows vista business Japanese version for windows vista Ultimate edition

    Recently, I bought a laptop in the Japan. The operating system is Windows Vista Business Japanese Version. I'm not familiar with the Japanese language and because of that I wanted to change it to English. I had discovered to find the way to put in place, but I found there was no way else to solve except buy a new Windows Vista with English Version or mine upgrade to Windows Vista ultimate. And I want to ask a question:
    1. is there anything else beside what I mentioned above?
    2. If I decided to buy a Step-Upgrade Vista Ultimate DVD Business, should I buy with the same language version with my Vista business, Japanese Version? Or is it fine with Step-setting level Vista Business to ultimate DVD English version anyway?
    3. Please show me how to change the display language after upgrade my Vista to Vista Ultimate!
    3. in the future, if there is a problem that I have to reinstall the OS, this DVD of Step - update allows again?

    Thank you for your attention.
    I'm sorry, my English is not good enough, I hope that you will understand my questions.

    Best account.

    Change language:

    1. to change your Vista professional Japanese language to English, you can buy a Japanese Vista Ultimate Upgrade disk/license.

    Then download the English language through Windows Update as an option Pack.

    Vista Ultimate upgrade must be done in the original language Vista came.

    2. your other Option is to buy a FULL Vista Business English version and do a clean install.

    3. If you want to reinstall, you need the original installation of business > Ultimate upgrade > re-download the optional updates in Windows English Language Pack...

    See you soon.

  • 2 docking stations connectable to laptop at the same time without crashing my Windows Vista Business?

    I am a 67-year-old educator specialized for 10 children with special needs.  Eelle have degrees of autism and require very individualized changes of their standardized curriculum class in public schools.  My laptop was purchased in 2007, and while she is an old lady like me, she is reliable, powerful and small enough horse for me to work on the fly... I just want to her top in order to exploit one of my docking stations or both at the same time...

    Gateway model C-5815 notebook convertible; touchscreen navigation or Penabled; Intel Centrino Core 2 Duo processor; U 7500 1.06 GHZ GHZ 1.07; 4 GB RAM 32-bit operating system. Windows Vista Business... AND ONLY 2 USB PORTS from where I work, 2 external hard drives, 2 printers; 2 scanners; 1 external TV/monitor, 1 keyboard, 1 ball control, external speakers and sinc various gps units, Ipods, cell phones, etc etc etc...  I did all this by the docking station to a generic port Targus 3 unit and an extension of USB Belkin 7port...

    UPDATE  Mahalo for anyone who has tried to help me with this question... I read everything that was recommended, but nothing has addressed this issue directly. In the end, I just bit the bullett and both plugged to my laptop... She has chewed on everything what adding new material for some time, but then she moved and purred... I even tried plugging and unplugging does material of a docking, and still she purred...  Mahalo to look at the problem (not) with me... Apparently the business Windows Vista is quite difficult to adapt to both stations and host at the same time...
