I imported Windows Internet Explorer 9 into WSUS using the Microsoft Update Catalog web page. I then approved the updates. All the Windows 7 machines installed the update correctly. The Windows Vista machines did not. When checking the WSUS Console, those machines have reported that the update is Not Applicable.

When I run Windows Update from a client machine, IE9 is not offered.

I am not sure what to do to make the Vista machines see the update as "Needed"

Does Vista have SP2? Have you checked to see if it already has IE9? –  GregD Oct 7 '11 at 14:41
    
Do the Vista machines have Service Pack 2 installed? I don't think IE9 is avalible for Vanilla Vista, SP1, or older Windows Versions. –  tombull89 Oct 7 '11 at 14:42
    
Yes they all have SP2. I should have mentioned that earlier. –  Jordan Cobb Oct 7 '11 at 15:04

I would make sure that Windows Vista x64 is at Service Pack 2 because you can't install IE9 on less. Also, it's possible that Vista already has IE 9...have you checked that?

The file %WinDir%\WindowsUpdate.log can also offer some clues.
