A Windows Update Screen You Don’t Want To See

I saw this screen when provisioning an x64 Vista box at SATV today.  The failed update was Windows Powershell 1.0 for Vista x64, with an error code of 0x80004002.

This post on the TechNet forums suggest a problem with Windows Update DLL’s not being updated properly.

However, that update was the only failed one, and subsequently, I ran Windows Update again, and the update installed successfully.  So it was a transient error.  I’ve never seen that happen with Vista.

But everything was normal when I left the machine so I may never know what happened.  I didn’t take any action other than to let Windows Update re-detect and run again.
