Original Title: How Do I Install IE9? [Windows Update Error 80092004]
I'm trying to install IE9. This fails every time in Windows Update with the error "Code 80092004."
I've worked through ALL the steps in "Troubleshoot problems when you cannot install Internet Explorer 9" (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2409098). I've also downloaded and installed the System Update Readiness Tool (as recommended by the Windows Update "Get help with this error" dialogue).
Finally, I've used the Microsoft Fix It automatic troubleshooter for problems with Windows Update. It tells me it finds a problem and fixes it, but IE9 still won't install.
Under Windows Components, IE9 is shown as installed (despite the running browser being IE8). If I deselect this check box next to the item, it uninstalls IE8 (leaving the system with no browser). Re-selecting it installs IE8 (not 9).
This is a relatively fresh machine install, with all Windows Update components installed (nothing pending to install).
My problem looks similar to this one:
Note that one has no answers, only some suggestions to try everything I've already tried.
Oddly, installing Safari and Firefox "just works" - zero user pain, no troubleshooters required. Is this a sign? :)
