Download Vista to Windows 7 Upgrades-Stuck-at-62% Automatic Fix

Available from Microsoft

Microsoft has made available for download an automatic fix designed to resolve failed upgrades from Windows Vista to Windows 7 in scenarios in which the process gets stuck at 64% indefinitely. With Windows 7 having hit the shelves on October 22nd, 2009, eligible users running Vista proceeded to upgrade to their recently acquired copies of Windows 7. And, while the general rule is that the jump from Vista to Windows 7 is nothing short of a smooth transition, some users found that the upgrade process stopped responding at 62%. In such cases, the operating system also creates a file labeled system_drive:\$WINDOWS.~BT\Sources\Panther\setupact.log. The specific log entries contained by this file are exemplified in KB975253.

“This problem occurs because the Iphlpsvc service stops responding during the upgrade. Other services may also cause a problem in which the upgrade process stops responding at 62%,” Microsoft explained. Microsoft does not have an update ready to resolve the issue. However, the software giant is by no means letting users hang out to dry. It has already offered a workaround that can be deployed manually, but, at the same time, it has also built an automatic fix that can be deployed effortlessly by Windows 7 customers affected by this specific issue.

This will help amyone still having problems as well as people that just now or later deciding to upgrade. The largest benefit will be for those who bought new systems with Vista preinstalled with or without the free upgrade to 7 option.

The only problem with that is not all people have the option or experience to perform a clean install where they would likely end up buying a separate full disk OEM if not retail in order to see Vista simply replaced. On the other hand for those who custom build their own cases they soon have to learn how to do things like partitioning and formatting drives as well as simply running the Windows installer there.

Others won't even go as far as performing an upgrade or clean install but simply go out and buy a new system with 7 already on it. But for those who time and energy invested into one system their only option may be an upgrade in order to preserve what they have now. Each to their own there.
