SP1 Release Candidate failed to install with error code "80073701"

Hey all,

I am interested in testing out the Windows 7 Release Candidate, my Windows Update detected it as a important update, I tried to install it through Windows Update twice, always failing with the error code "80073701". I have no idea why this is happening, and I haven't changed any important system settings.

Thanks for the help !
