I have Windows FLP running in a VM. I have installed SP3 and IE8 on it and cannot seem to get Microsoft/Windows Update to work. Does anyone know a fix for this issue?

Have you installed any updates from Windows/MS Update before?

Yes, I have. Even on legacy OSes like Windows XP which is what Windows FLP is based on. However Windows/Microsoft Update works fine on XP, but not on FLP.

What does it mean "it doesn't work"? Any error message? I seriously doubt it just says "0x WONT WORK LOL", you must be getting something. Please share the details.

Some googling reveals you should try installing the newest Windows Installer manually before attempting to access Windows Update.

You can try the POSready registry tweak, then install the latest IE8 cumulative update. It worked for me on XP and POSready 2009, but never tried on FLP. It should work normally
