I am trying to install Microsoft Pinyin IME 2010 in Vista from the microsoft website.
I have installed this no problem on my other computer running XP today.

When I try to install on this Vista computer I get a message that says need to install Service Packs.
I have auto-update turned on, I thought the service packs were installed as they were released if auto-update is
turned on.

How do I know which SP I should install, the message only says "need current service pack" and doesn't give a number.
So my Vista version is Vista home premium v 6.0 Build 6000 and I am still getting automatic updates, and I thought (read on msoft website) that "Support for Windows Vista without any service packs ended on April 13, 2010".

Can anyone tell me how to figure out which SP I need to install?

Also if you go here http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows...Windows-updates
Then click on To check for Windows updates it should auto determine the Updates needed for YOUR computer.

More info and there's a how to tab on this page.
