If Windows Vista Update fails with error 80245003

Maby you have this problem: You try to update your Windows Vista RC1 / RC2 desktop and you get the error that you cannot update with error 80245003

Then you can try this what i found on the net:

Rename the SoftwareDistribution folder (it will be recreated next time you visit
WU again)
You will lose your history but that’s not important.
Click Start, Choose Run.
In the Run box, type services.msc.
Click OK.
Right-click the Automatic Updates service.
Click Stop.
Stopping the service will take a moment.
Rename the “SoftwareDistribution” folder:
a. Click Start, click Run, type %systemroot%, and then click OK.
b. Right-click the SoftwareDistribution folder, and then click Rename.
c. Type SoftwareDistribution.old, and then press ENTER to rename this folder.

Click Start. Choose Run.
In the Run box, type services.msc.
Click OK.
Right-click the Automatic Updates service.
Click Start.
Starting the service will take a moment.

This worked for me.
