Windows downloader fix for Vista

skkline1113
I have searched a fix for windows downloader . Many people have this problem . The fix on windows site is to download version 4.5 which says it is for all windows O.S. but when it is down loaded it gives error message that it is not for Vista. So... no solution. Microsoft could simply put a stand alone download on their site but have not!! Any help out there-? Will someone put download on this site?

Thanks

    That would be up to the site owners, anyway.

    What, may I ask, is a Windows Downloader? How about a link to the MS page? We can then figure out what you want, and what might be the problem.

    Oh, I see. Windows Installer.

    You want one for "Windows 6.0"

    <blockquote>For Windows Vista, Windows Vista Service Pack 1 and Windows Server 2008:
    x86 Platform: Windows6.0-KB942288-v2-x86.msu
    x64 Platform: Windows6.0-KB942288-v2-x64.msu
    IA64 Platform: Windows6.0-KB942288-v2-ia64.msu</blockquote>

    So, you either have 32-bit Windows (x86)
    or 64-bit Windows (x64)
