There are a couple reasons, the most common being that you have a
language installed which isn't supported, or a driver which won't
upgrade properly.

If your problem is the first, you need to remove that language.

If your problem is the second, I believe the standalone installer will
still run, although I'm not entirely certain.

Give it a shot and see?

There are MILLIONS of Vista users, not every single one will get the
notice that it is available on the very first day, or even the very
first week. Give it time, it WILL come thru. Yes you can download it
directly from MS and install it yourself, it will work just fine. On
that page it says some people may not get notified until mid April or
so.

I ran into the same problem attempting to update my son's computer running
Vista. A resolution was offered in Windows Vista General Forum. I followed
that person's advice, and it worked like a charm.

Check out MowGreen's direction to follow Microsoft's
revelations/recommendations in the link he provided. Make certain all your
drivers are up to date, and everything that's important to you on your hard
drive is backed up. Take the time to make an image of your hard drive, just
in case. Then try what "e" suggests.

Here is his quote:

Here is a link for the stand alone:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/w.../bb738089.aspx
I read somewhere that it will be available on Windows Update in a week. I
can't find the article. Sorry!

I have Vista Home Premium sp1 on my box that was downloded and installed
(sp1,not Vista Home Premium) by automatic update, I"m not sure when but if I
check the properties it shows sp1 on the properties page. I have automatic
updates set to download and install.

If it shows SP1, then it is installed. You're all set.
