[SOLVED] Vista 32bit SP2 will not install!

13116 Views 22 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  sens08
Hello there, I need some help here with my pc. I'm trying to update my Vista 32-bit Home Premium SP1 OS to Service Pack 2, but shortly after the install process begins (preparing dialogue) another dialogue appears
"Installation was not successful"
"No such interface supported"

I click on the details link and says: Error: E_NOINTERFACE(0x80004002)

I've been browsing the web and seems like there are others with the same problem, but haven't found no solution.

Here are some items about my system:
Dell Desktop PC Inspiron 518
Windows Vista Home Premium
Service Pack 1
32-bit operating system.

I hoping someone in here can help me and may suggest something useful, I like to have SP2 on my system so I can continue to recieve updates and get Explorer 9.

Thanks in advance, if there is something else you would like to know just ask me, and I'll be happy to find out.

Re: Vista 32bit SP2 will not install!

First run AV software. If you find malware, head over to the Security forum where they will help you.

If everything comes back clean, try disabling your antivirus and firewall during the installation because sometimes AV software will prevent the installation of a service pack.
Re: Vista 32bit SP2 will not install!

Thanks epshatto. Fortunately I do have Trend Micro Titanium running on my system and does a schedule run every day but everything seems be ok. I tried disabling my firewall and closed Windows Defender and Trend Micro but still the same error, from what I've been reading around it could be something in the registry maybe? It seems like this just one of those things its a simple fix but I have no clue what I could be though.
Re: Vista 32bit SP2 will not install!

A few more things to mention about my Desktop though I don't think it has much factor into the issues:

Hard Drive Size: 581 GB
Processor: Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2220 @ 2.40 GHz
Memory: 4.00 GB
Re: Vista 32bit SP2 will not install!

Description of the System Update Readiness Tool for Windows Vista, for Windows Server 2008, for Windows 7, and for Windows Server 2008 R2

Run the System Update Readiness Tool to see if you can find anything preventing an update.

You can also disable all non-Microsoft startup programs using the msconfig utility. Attempt to install SP2 with those programs disabled, and AV/firewall disabled.

Failing that attempt to manually download SP2 from the Microsoft Download Center:

Learn how to install Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (SP2)

Go to the bottom of the page and click "Manually installing SP2 using the Microsoft Download Center" for instructions.

Sometimes Windows Update is the problem.

Re: Vista 32bit SP2 will not install!

I have already downloaded SP1 and SP2 stand alone packages, though I didn't have to download SP1 but I did just in case. Still no avail. One more note what SRT (System Readiness tool) do I use x86 or x64, I do not see any 32-bit listed applications?
Re: Vista 32bit SP2 will not install!

So I ran the System Update Readiness Tool, disabled the AV, Firewall and all non-MS startup programs. Tried going through MS update and manually no luck. Starting to think I may need a new clean install, if so I'll do without it.
Re: Vista 32bit SP2 will not install!

This morning I tried to reinstall Vista again, but comes up you must uninstall Windows Power Shell, so I looked in my programs/updates in Control panel under installed updates but nothing showing, not even service pack 1 however there are a lot of hotfixes, security updates, and so on.
Re: Vista 32bit SP2 will not install!

You cannot upgrade a Windows-based operating system when you have Windows PowerShell 1.0 installed
This will explain the uninstall and why the Power Shell prevents update installations.
Re: Vista 32bit SP2 will not install!

Sorry if I wasn't clear in my above post, I wanted to know how to remove Windows PowerShell without it being listed in my installed updates list such as my case.
Re: Vista 32bit SP2 will not install!

OK, let's try the opposite. Go to Download details: Windows PowerShell 1.0 English-Language Installation Package for Windows XP (KB926139)
and see if the download works. If so, let Windows Update update it.
Re: Vista 32bit SP2 will not install!

Actaully it downloads as Powershell 2.0 and in the programs and Features under installed updates as Windows Management Framework Core (KB968930).
Re: Vista 32bit SP2 will not install!

Download a clean copy of SP2 and see what happens. Let it overwrite what you have.
Re: Vista 32bit SP2 will not install!

Still says no interface detected. I hate vista.
Re: Vista 32bit SP2 will not install!

I did, created the register.bat file tried again and same error message, also I downloaded the Windows Update Agent and installed it and still no luck. I tried to installed a standalone Service 1 pack and says its already been updated. Starting to run out of options now.
Re: Vista 32bit SP2 will not install!

Even though Trend Micro comes up negative, please use our analysis at:
and follow the instructions. It would be a shame if you did a complete reformat and it turned out that malware was the problem.
