Update KB929777

When I try to install the update I received the following message: Windows
Update error code 8000FFFF.
My OS is Windows Vista.
Any suggestion?

RE: Update KB929777

I have the exact same problem with the same parameters. Have been trying to
install since 2/2/07 and it never works.

No, but I have the exact problem. The computer is 2 days old. It's
frustrating at best...

Re: Update KB929777

I did search for a solution from MSN website. It says we might need to remove
some ram in order to install the update. However, after I removed 2G ram from
my computer, it said I don't need the update anymore. It is pretty stupid!!
So what now?

Re: Update KB929777

I did the same, but downloaded the udpate first.
I ran the update with 2GBs and it still failed.
This software company's a failure...to put out "fixes" without testing them.

Try installing 929777 with 3GB of RAM installed (not 2GB, not 4GB). Another
user has reported success at that size.

Robin,


Does this mean that the user actually has to open up the box
and remove chip(s)? Couldn't they do it via boot loader?

From an ealier post on the same topic:

<extract>

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms791501.aspx

(Live Search for
vista boot loader maxmem
)

Based on an idea found after remembering a similar issue with IE
(ref. KB303399 - You Cannot Finish Installing or Upgrading Internet Explorer)

I was actually thinking that perhaps a BIOS change might be possible
which also would be preferable to fiddling with chips. I didn't bother trying
to research that idea further after finding this /MAXMEM idea.

Re: Update KB929777

Hi.
I've got a Dell laptop with 4 GB RAM and got the same problem with this
KB929777.
I did not need to do any HW-changes to fix this.
This is what I did:

1) Manually uninstall the KB929777
Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> View installed updates (in the
left pane)

Find the KB929777, right click and uninstall

The computer now needs to reboot.

After reboot, go to the Microsoft web site and manually download/install
KB929777.

The update then installed as it should have done in the first place.

Bob.

Re: Update KB929777

I got the same error message but fixed by Bob's email. Details are follows:
1. I built the computer myself with 2GB of RAM. Vista Premium i32 nstalled
fine and running OK with auto-updates working.
2. In the meantime I updated to 4GB of Ram although only 3.3 is use by Vista .
3. In Nov 2007 I got this failure in Auto-update although when I looked at
hotfix this file appeared to have updated in Oct. So no clue why it was
trying to install again but failure is not good in my books.
4. As per some "google" suggesstion I tried to take out 2GB of RAM and tried
to run the autoupdate but now it say it does not need it (just like the first
post here).
5. Then got Bob's suggestion. So while still 4GB installed: (i) I made sure
that I had the file for the update downloaded on my desktop from Microsoft
download; (ii) set a restore point to roll back in case of problem; (iii)
uninstalled the hotfix by install/remove programs; (iv) restarted the
computer; and (v) installed the update from my desktop. It has now installed
and works fine.

Bottom line: there is no need to open your computer (as I did and was not
successful). Simply follow the steps and it works fine.

Cheers!
