Install SP1 and SP2 then try the updates again. If you already have SP1 then install SP2:

SP1:
32 bit: Windows Vista Service Pack 1 Five Language Standalone (KB936330)
64 bit: Windows Vista Service Pack 1 Five Language Standalone for x64-based Systems (KB936330)


SP2:
32 bit: Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 and Windows Vista Service Pack 2 - Five Language Standalone (KB948465)
64 bit: Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 and Windows Vista Service Pack 2 - Five Language Standalone for x64-based systems (KB948465)
