Can't upgrade from RC1 to RC2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have downloaded RC2 using both the Download manager and directly from IE, matched the MD5 checksum and burned DVDs using both Nero and Achohol120. When I try to upgrade within Vista I get the error E:Sources\WDSCORE.dll not designed to run on windows or  "Windows cannot open the required file e:\Sources\Install.wim. The file may be corrupt or missing. Error code: 0x80070570.

    If I boot the DVD, update is disabled and all I can do is a clean install. I would prefer to not reinstall everything if possible. Any ideas on how to upgrade?

  • It sounds like you're trying to upgrade from an x86 version to a 64 bit version. The 64bit version uses a different executable that will not run in a 32bit environment.

    Either download the 32 bit version or boot from the 64bit DVD (which will lose your data).

  • I am having exactly the same problem, but I'm sure I downloaded the correct version. I'll download again to make sure.
