Vista 32Bit Update Listing ID's forever

Vista 32Bit Update Listing ID's forever

Postby jukkis83 » 12.07.2017, 08:34


I got a "fresh" Vista 32Bit system with no SP1 or SP2. I installed them manually and downloaded new updates via WSUS 9.2.2. When I tried updating the machine I get to the part where it says "listing ids of missing updates". I let the computer run for over a day and it is still listing the ID's. Am I doing something wrong?

The computer is very slow dual core 1.6GHz laptop which takes about a week to update manually :(

The svchost service is running and consuming the other cpu core while the other core is idling. I tried disabling the windows update services which fixes this, but then I cannot do any updates even with WSUS.

Any help would be welcome. Thanks.

Try installing these updates before running wsusou:
It's based on a list I created a while ago. Then reboot and retry.

Also you might try this:
:arrow: ... .6-x86.exe
I know, that the package is for Windows 7 SP1, but it works flawlessly on Vista, too.

Don't forget to configure Windows Update to "Never search for updates"
