System Update Readiness Tool: Fix Failed Update Installation in Windows 7 and Vista
Microsoft has released a new tool “System Update Readiness Tool”, which allows you to fix the failed update installation in Windows Vista, Windows 7, Server 2008 & Server 2008 R2.
System resources, such as file data, registry data, and even in-memory data, can develop inconsistencies during the lifetime of the operating system. These inconsistencies might be caused by various hardware failures or might be caused by software issues.
In some cases, these inconsistencies can affect the Windows servicing store, and they can cause software updates not to work. The System Update Readiness Tool tries to resolve these inconsistencies.
Although this tool is available via Windows Update, you can also download it manually by following the links given below.
