Have you run system update from "Windows update"? It is possible that you have another update (required by the update you are trying to install) missing.

And do you have Service Pack 1 installed?

Oh, and this is also possible that you accidently have already installed this update 😉 - that would also cause this error.

I have service pack 1, I have tried all updates, they do not work.

It may not be needed but if you don't have it you are going to be seeing lots of messages like this when installing things:

If an update is already installed you will see this message:

 

[attachment=197446:Untitled.jpg]

 

And if the update is already installed you will see this Event in the Windows Setup log:

There is a 32 and a 64 bit version of the update so you have to install the one that matches the system:

If the update is the wrong architecture (32-64-bit) or prerequisites are not met you will see this message:

And if the update is the wrong architecture (32-64-bit) or prerequisites are not met you will see this in the Event in Windows Setup log:

The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates.

I see, thank you so much for the information guys! I fixed it by finding some hidden dll files in a windows folder and it stopped giving me the error. I also downloaded some prereq updates and I think that helped other areas in my PC too!
