Windows Vista Update – Error 8024D00F

A few weeks ago, I had a problem while updating a brand new Dell laptop with Windows Vista on it. Anyway, while I was updating Windows Vista through Windows Vista Update, I got the following error:

Windows Vista Update failed with Error 8024D00F

Here is a solution for this problem:

    • Click on Start
    • Go to Programs -> Accessories
    • Right click on Command Prompt and choose “Run as Administrator”


Then type the following and press enter:

reg delete HKLM\Components /v AdvancedInstallersNeedResolving

After this, reboot your computer. Windows Vista Update will now work fine!
