  • Thanks, my system is Windows 7 Ultimate Edition 32bit. And the error code is 643.

  • Hi alfred,

    It's based on my experience that following options will raise the error which you mentioned:

    • Corrupt Windows Registry: Damage to your computer's registry could compromise your PC's stability and performance, including slow-downs, 643 Error and crashes..
    • Overloaded Windows System: Extraneous consumption of System resource like memory, CPU and hard drives can overload the Operating System and thus make your PC prone to  643 Error.

    I hope following link can help you: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_other-windows_update/error-643/93465ca2-98f1-4ab1-9b89-d122c001b8ac

    Have a good day,

  • I'm getting the same error - 643 when it tries to install the KB2525428 - update for Visual Studio Tools for Office.

    My system is Windows 7 64bit on an AMD based 6 Core PC.

    I'm using VS2010 to do Silverlight Development.  Also I have VS2012 installed (although SL dev doesn't work with that for some reason).

    TIA

  • I'm facing the same issue. Installation of Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime update fails with Code 643

  • I see the same issue.  I tried installing the update manually (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=20479), and got a more detailed error message: "A more recent version of this update is already installed."

  • Just for further reference (I realize it's an older thread, but it's still searchable!), the "permalink" for the download is go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=140384.  The other link unfortunately had to be retired, so please use the permalink above instead.

  • That link gave me: "We're sorry, but the page you requested could not be found. Please check your typing and try again, or use the search options on this page"

    In the end I uninstalled Tools for Office - wasn't using them, and after several days the update that wouldn't install, disappeared and stopped troubling me.
