Can't install KB943729 Client Side Extensions Vista SP1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    My colleague installed a new Vista SP1 machine (I know SP1 is not supported anymore, long story but I cannot upgrade to SP2 because of the software running on this client). He is 100% sure he installed CSE. After that he did a sysprep and made a image by BESR.

    Now the client is shipped to my location. GPO and GPP won't work. I see many problems normally caused by not installing CSE. So I checked the Windows Update list and KB943729 is not listed. When I try to run the CSE msu file it will do a search for updates and fails on message: The update does not apply to your system

    I checked the machine: It is Windows Vista Business SP1 x86. The msu file is also for Vista SP1 x86. I used the same file last months for another machine where another colleague forgot to install the CSE. It is very strange why I cannot install the CSE. There are no strange events logged. I don't know how to solve this.

    Anyone who can help me?

  • I found the solution: There are two NICs installed on the Vista client used for different networks. My colleague accidently configured also two gateways. I found out after the route print command. :-). So i deleted the second gateway.

    It's solved now.

  • Update:

    In the GUI I couldn't find the kb installed of CSE but trough command systeminfo I saw the kb of CSE installed. Now it seems I have dns errors. The machine did registered dynamic DNS records. It also joined the domain succesfully. But when I ping the DC from the client by hostname if failes. Ping to IP of the DC succeeds. Ping to hostname of the client from the DC succeeds too. Ipconfig /displaydns is a emtpy table. So I disjoined the client of the domain. Removed the computerobject and rejoined to the domain succesfull again. Now I can ping to hostname from client to DC and vice versa. But still the gpupdate /force results in a error telling me there are network problems or dfs client is not working or something like that.

    A colleague of mine remembered these kind of problems. In the past they installed hotfix kb971060. So I installed this patch. After a reboot I even cannot ping the hostname of the DC. SO i disjoined and rejoined the domain again. Now I cannot join the domain anymore! I do get a credentials popup to join the computer tot the domain but after a long wait I get a message: "The following error occured attempting to join the domain "domainname". The network path cannot be found". In the background I have constant ping from DC to the client. There is always a good respond, never a timeout or later respond.
