Your post is partially inaccurate. The updates for Photo Gallery and Movie Maker will not allow them to run on a Vista operating system, the other items install and run fine on Vista as I'm on a Vista machine as I type this.

The latest version of Windows Essentials won't run on Windows Vista or Windows XP.
If you're running Windows Vista, you'll need to install Windows Live Essentials 2011.

Don't know what to tell you; I downloaded the offline installer and everything updated to 2012 except, as I noted, Movie Maker and Photo Gallery. I did not get a "failed to install" report. And yes, it's really on a Vista computer.
