"Installer encountered an error: 0x800401f0"

I've tried to install a Vista update patch (KB941649) downloaded from
Microsoft web site. I just double the file, but I only got an error message:

Installer encountered an error: 0x800401f0
CoInitialize has not been called.

Googling has not been helpful so far. Does anyone know a solution?
Thanks in advance.

Download and SAVE the CORRECT version of KB941649 from these links :

Vista 32 bit [x86]
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

Vista 64 bit [x64]
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

Save it to the Desktop
After the download completes close the browser and any other open programs

Install the update now and then reboot.
