Windows Update Not Working after Internet Explorer 5 Upgrade


If you upgrade to Internet Explorer 5, and try to access the Windows Update Web site, you might receive the following error message:

You have an older version of Internet Explorer 5 and Internet Tools.
If you would like to download additional components from the Windows Update catalog,
you must first upgrade to the latest version.

There is a registry key, which doesn't seem to get updated with the correct information. To rectify this:

  1. Start the Registry Editor
  2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ Active Setup \ Installed Components \ {89820200-ECBD-11cf-8B85-00AA005B4383}
  3. The string value Version should be 5,00,2014,0216
  4. Close the registry editor, and restart Windows
