If for example you go to Microsoft and get Vista service pk 2 will it be written in 38bit or 64bit?
My grand son used his cable connection with my 10 computer and loaded Vista Service pk 2 and some anti malware programs for me on a thumb drive. The programs would transfer ok but Vista said the service pk was 64bit and would not install it on the Vista machine.
 
IIRC Vista did not have a 64bit version did it?

Vista did have a 64bit version. Here is the link for the 32bit version of SP2. Labeled X86.

There was a 64 bit version of Vista, so if you are using the 32 bit Vista you'll need the 32 bit SP2 (x86). The service pack covers Vista and Server 2008:

Thanks so maybe he grabbed the wrong one then and it was not a copy issue

He said he was pretty shure he got the right one but who knows.

Vista came in both 32 bit and 64 bit versions. But the OEM copy of Vista the 32 and 64 bit version were sold separately while the retail boxed version comes with a 32 bit disk and a 64 bit disk.
