I'm trying to remotely manage a Hyper-V server from my desktop PC. Following these instructions, I've downloaded the Hyper-V Remote Management Update for Windows Vista for x64-based Systems (KB952627). When I attempt to install it, I get the error "This update does not apply to your system."

I'm running Windows Vista SP2, 64-bit.

Edit: I've also tried Update for Windows Vista Service Pack 2 Management Tools for Hyper-V for x64-based Systems (KB970203), to the same results.

Solved! I found this update: It worked.

I have no idea why that didn't occur to me. I've done it before. Must be the cold medication. – Chris Sep 30 '09 at 18:45
