Error with MikTeX

Dear all, since I reinstalled MikTeX 2.9 (due to the RC2 problem with
1.6), I've been having the following error while updating/installing
packages:

MiKTeX Problem Report
Message: Windows API error 87: The parameter is incorrect.

I'm stuck with this problem. Changing repositories does nothing. Does
anybody know how to solve it?

Regards.

Re: Error with MikTeX

Problem solved. PDFLatex doesn't die after a problematic run due to an
uninstalled package. It was blocking some files which, I guess, needed
to be modified by the Package Manager. After killing PDFLatex
installation run smoothly.

This was an undocumented error as far as I know. I hope this message
will be stored in Google's indexes for all eternity, making
troubleshooting a simpler task. ;)

Regards.
