    I've been getting this error too. What folder did you delete to make it work?

    I had the same issue and two different Microsoft techs worked several hours on my computer remotely trying to resolve it. Ultimately, after today's attempt by the tech to fix it, I did a clean reinstall of Windows Vista on my machine from my laptop's recovery disk (I was going to do a clean reinstall with Windows 8 anyway) and then ran the upgrade assistant. It finally worked and I'm downloading Windows 8 now.
