Did you reboot after installing the updates? Afterward, did you
confirm in the system properties that you're running SP2? Did you
check that "%SystemRoot%\System32\ucrtbase.dll" exists, plus a bunch
of "api-ms-win-crt-*.dll" DLLs in the same directory?

That is not true in general for Vista. It's particular to your
computer. Check the installer logs in your %TEMP% directory for
errors, which will typically be an HRESULT error code that starts with
0x8, such as 0x80070002.
