    Ok I'm having a few issues with Windows Update on Vista Ultimate x64. I
    didn't have any of these issues with 32 bit.

    First is Windows Dreamscene. For some reason, even after installing
    correctly the first time, it's still showing up in my available downloads
    list and never fails each time I try.

    Second is the language packs. The majority installed correctly but for some
    reason Danish, Dutch, Greek, Hebrew, Japanese, Norwegian, and Serbian
    (Latin) are failing every time I try.

    Third, every time I click on the More Information link, for example,
    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=81071 (this is the link for supposedly
    more information on the Japanese Language Pack) my web browser redirects to
    the Vista information homepage...

    Any information on any of these issues, especially the update ones, would be
    great. Thanks!

  2. I'd suggest asking over on the Windows Update newsgroup. I haven't heard or
    seen anything that indicates any sort of widespread 64-bit issue with 64-bit
    Vista and updates. I certainly haven't seen any of the issues you're
    describing. My suspicion is that it's a more general WU problem as opposed
    to a 64-bit issue. The newsgroup is: microsoft.public.windowsupdate.

    Ok. I didn't know there was a Windows Update newsgroup... MS certainly
    hasn't made this the easiest site to navigate. Thanks.

  4. First rule - WHATEVER it is, there's probably a newsgroup for it. At least
    as far as I've been able to tell. ;)

    It's why most of us use the NNTP interface and not the web one.
