Hello all. I have Vista Home Premium SP 2 64 bit OS on my home desktop. I have never been able to download Microsoft.Net Framework. This has occurred for 2 years now since I've had my PC.
The most recent failed update download (today) I received the error message WindowsUpdate_0000066A after the attempted download process. All of my other updates download fine. I really need this one so I can update my Garmin maps. I've tried several download attempts without success. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you....Tom.

Try this:

  • Click Start, type services.msc in the Start Search box, right-click services.msc in the search results, and then click Run as administrator.
  • A new Window should open named "Services." In the Services (Local) pane, find either the Automatic Updates or the Windows Update entry, right click on it, and then click Stop from the pop-up menu.
  • Look in the C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution folder. Delete everything in it.
  • Go back to the Services window, right click the service you just stopped and select Start from the pop-up menu.
  • Reboot and run Windows Update again.

Andrew, thank you very much for your assistance. I did everything you advised for me to do and I still got the same error. It still showed it failed to successfully download Net Framework 4.
If anything else comes to mind, please let me know. Thank you again.....Tom.
