Im in the process of updating an old PC I have as a back up for bits and bobs.

It currently running Vista and I downloaded the Service Pack 2 for it last night. I want to up date the Outlook and when I downloaded the exe file for Windows Live Essentials, however it's asking me to first to get Windows Platform Update.

It provides me with a link that just times out eventually.

Has anyone got another link to the Windows Platform Update.

Cheers

Here is a page with a working link (i've tested it).....

*link removed*

Your windows has to be Validated before you can download.

Just tried that download.

It says the update does not apply to my system.

And my Windows was validated.

Wrong link sorry....

64 bit (x64) http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyId=a8a98227-6acf-4a92-9766-9237f4af9675&displaylang=en

32 bit (x86) http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyId=c00f9a3a-6aef-446c-af8f-01ba008b6474&displaylang=en

edit: I should have asked this first, but, do you know if your running Vista: 64bit (x64) or 32bit (x86) ?

If you don't know, the way to find out is to press the "windows" key + Pause break at the same time and your system properties will pop up.

It will say either "32bit" or "64 bit operating sytem" In the info on the window that pops.

edit2: x64 link added

It's 32 bit that I'm running.

I tried the second link you provided, and it's still saying to me the update does not apply to my system. :)

Edit: I think I have found what update I need. KB971644
