Windows vista ultimate not updating

"N" editions of Windows Vista require third-party software (or a separate installation of Windows Media Player) to play audio CDs and other media formats such as MPEG-4.Two additional editions of Windows Vista have been released for use by developers of embedded devices.Additional features include support for Multilingual User Interface (MUI) packages, Bit Locker Drive Encryption, and UNIX application-support.Not available through retail or OEM channels, this edition will get distributed through Microsoft Software Assurance (SA).It includes all the features of Home Basic with the exception of parental controls and the Windows Vista Standard theme.This edition can join and participate in a Windows Server domain.

Windows Movie Maker is included as well, but without support for working with high-definition video.Similar to Windows XP Home Edition, Home Basic targets budget-conscious users not requiring advanced media support for home use.This edition lacks the Windows Aero graphical user interface with translucent glass effects; however, it does support desktop composition.The Commission concluded that Microsoft "broke European Union competition law by leveraging its near monopoly in the market for PC operating systems onto the markets for work group server operating systems and for media players." Microsoft reached an agreement with the Commission where it would release a court-compliant version, Windows XP Edition N, that does not include the company's Windows Media Player but instead encourages users to download and install their preferred media player.

Similarly, in December 2005, the Korean Fair Trade Commission ordered Microsoft to make available editions of Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 that do not contain Windows Media Player or Windows Messenger.

Most 32-bit programs can run natively, though applications that rely on device drivers will not run unless those device drivers have been written for 64-bit Windows.
