RE: Cannot Install Package Update re: KB898461

Simon,
My issue was resolved by the post from Herr_Mord but perhaps yours will be
helpful to someone else. Thanks ...

Re: Cannot Install Package Update re: KB898461

After trying for hours with no luck despite trying every solution posted here and all over the internet I was finally able to discover the solution.

Uninstall KB898461 from the add/remove programs.

Not sure when it got there or why it wasn't doing its job, but removing it seemed to fix everything.

Re: Cannot Install Package Update re: KB898461

Hi, I can't install that patch either, for weeks now. I've tried everything in this thread, but it still won't help.

When I try to download the patch file and install it directly, it claims to have been installed successfully, but the patch is the only one that keeps showing up in the auto updater. There it fails and produces this log:

[KB898461.log]
5.547: ================================================================================
5.547: 2011/04/02 12:11:52.015 (local)

5.578: Setup cannot update your Windows XP files because the language
installed on your system is different from the update language.
5.578: Update.exe extended error code = 0xf001


Any more Ideas?

Re: Cannot Install Package Update re: KB898461

I only joined to post what finally worked for me.

Got rid of viruses/malware.
Tried several other suggestions that didn't work.

1. Ran QFECHECK.EXE to verify Windows patches/updates had installed correctly.
See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/282784

2. Deleted the C:\WINDOWS\$hf_mig$\KB898461 folder.
See http://support.microsoft.com/default...en-us%3B914229

3. Downloaded and installed the KB898461 update successfully!

4. Went to Windows Update and it's downloading updates now.

I also stopped Norton AV, but not sure if that matters.
Good luck!
