"Upgrade Patch can not be Installed" 

Nov 10 2009 at 5:43 PM
I am receiving the following Error:
Unable to read settings file: This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms.

This is the hotfix I was directed to KB935434 -- I am running Vista Ultimate with 3.5 .NET framework (with security update). Every time I try to install this hotfix I get the following message: The upgrade patch cannot be installed by the Windows Installer service because the program to be upgraded may be missing or the upgrade patch may update a different version of the program. Verify that the program to be upgraded exists on your computer and that you have the correct upgrade patch.

Okay I have verified that I need this hotfix and that I am indeed running a .Net framework. Please direct!!
