Windows Vista OS files and registry information are protected by Windows Resource Protection (WRP) in Windows Vista. This means that only the OS installer service (named TrustedInstaller) has permission to modify/remove these files or registry keys unless you specifically take ownership of the files/keys and add additional user accounts to the access permission list.

As SFC cannot fix this issue, you can take the following suggestions to resolve this issue.

Suggestion 1: Install .NET Framework Version 3.5

Then, please test your issue again. If it still persists, please try to take suggestion 2.

Suggestion 2: In-place Upgrade Installation.
