Windows update could not be installed because of error 2149842967 (KB958559-x86.msu)

VishalThakkar asked on
Hello
I am trying to install Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP mode on my toshiba laptop. The PC h/w compatibility tool says that my PC does support h/w assisted virtualization support (i.e. BIOS and processor support virtualization extentions).

I have installed the Windows XP Mode.

I am trying to install Windows Virtual PC on my Windows 7 Enterprise Edition 32bit RTM tablet and it fails with below:
Windows update could not be installed because of error 2149842967 "" (Command line: ""C:\WINDOWS\system32\wusa.exe" "C:\Users\vishalt\Downloads\Windows6.1-KB958559-x86.msu" ")

I tried many suggested options like 
a) reboots - didn't work
b) netstop wuauserv, bits, rename the softwaredistributionfolder, netstart these services (both) and try full windows update - windows update started but I still couldn't install the KB958559
c) try from cmdprompt in a UAC elevated cmd window.

I was wondering if there is something else that needs to be done to install this KB package.

Thanks in advance

...The link to Windows Module Insaller and registry size limit couldn't be attempted as the links on those threads don't seem to work.

I know. You'll see I've asked a Moderator to post a valid link to that thread.

Have you seen http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/w7itproappcompat/thread/61e16760-a500-481e-a90c-9b933f0fced8 ?

I'll keep you posted if I hear anything new.

Why are all of these marked as answered, when the original post made it clear the problem was still unresolved?    This is the third or fourth thread regarding this particular issue, without successful resolution.
