It's been a while since I've seen a Vista machine in the field, and I am now reminded of all the reasons why everybody hated this OS. I have about 30 failed updates with error codes ranging from cryptic to indecipherable/apparently meaningless. Googling these codes brings me to strange websites in China.

How to troubleshoot many failed updates?

upload the folder C:\Windows\logs\CBS ad the file C:\Windows\Windowsupdate.log –  magicandre1981 Jul 26 '13 at 4:08
    
Have you found the requested log files? –  magicandre1981 Jul 27 '13 at 18:42
    
Haven't been back onsite yet. The computer belongs to a client of mine. I was looking for some general tips on how to go about getting these to install. I will upload when I can. –  Scandalist Jul 27 '13 at 20:24
    
you can answer this generally. Without logs everything is pure speculation. –  magicandre1981 Jul 28 '13 at 7:29
