Hi,

Can't install mcvs 2015 and can't update after cloning hdd on windows VISTA home premium 64bit. It won't update.

mcvs 2015 partially installs with error. The last nvida display driver was may 2016 for vista. Do I really need to upgrade to windows 7 and pay for windows 7 OS again? It won't update either.  Thank you

If you want to upgrade to Windows 7 you will need Windows 7 product key.

You only need to install new driver if you are having issue with currently install driver.

If you are having issue with Windows updates run below programs one at time.

 

 

Download and run the Windows Update Troubleshooter.

When you upgrade to Windows 7 your personal files will not be touch but i advice you to make a backup of your personal files because sometimes upgrade process could fail and you will have trouble recovering your personal files.

Try below program to repair Windows Update.

https://www.microsof...ils.aspx?id=504

I didn't try the 2nd one. It seems there is a missing file lost when I cloned the hdd...but that is a guess.

You need to run x64-bit version of the System Update Readiness Tool.

Open the Command Prompt by clicking Start Menu --> All Programs --> Accessories, right-click on Command Prompt, and open it as an administrator.

Execute following command.

Sfc /Scannow

This command will try to repair any damage or missing Windows system files.

If Sfc command founds corrupted files but cannot repair them please upload the C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\Cbs.log to file sharing site and give us the download link.

I have seen this cbs file I think, but forgot how I did it. And it won't let me copy it or view it directly.

Here is the cmd which I ran before many times.

It was on a youtube video that I was following that let me view this CBS file, but I forget which one.

Please run the Sfc /Scannow command again and after its finish executing run below command.

Findstr  /c:"[SR]"  C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log  > %userprofile%\Desktop\CBS.txt

Above command will create CBS.txt file and stores it at Desktop please attached CBS.txt file to your next post.

Sorry I took so long to read your post. Ok from what I see is I need to buy windows 7 and then install it which will wipe everything out. Unless I grab sp1 or sp2 only from the file. Is that what their saying to just install sp1 or sp2 only?  Thx
