go to %WINDOWS%|SoftwareDistribution\Download and delete everything.
then re-run windows update and re-download the patch.

Go to COMPUTER
Double click C:
Open the folder WINDOWS
Search for the folder SOFTWARDISTRIBUTION and open it.
Look for the folder DOWNLOAD and open.
Delete ALL the content. (Keep the folder DOWNLOAD)
Reboot

Nobody even bothered to check whether the code was decimal or hex...

<cmd_output OS="XPsp3">
E:\>net helpmsg 652
652 is not a valid Windows network message number.

E:\>set /a c = 0x652
1618

E:\>net helpmsg %c%

Another installation is already in progress. Complete that installation before proceeding with this install.

</cmd_output>

the reason you get that 652 error message is you got version 3 already you need to remove it 1st then install the new version 4 it will work
