Your post is unclear about what you are trying to do. Are you trying to install a version of Windows while you are in Windows?

If you are trying to update your version of Windows installer I suggest you do that through Windows Update.

Look in Control panel> add/remove programs. Verify the show updates box is checked. See if the update is already listed. If so, try removing it, rebooting and then installing it again.
