Windows Update Issue Registering Files

  RobCharles1981 23:13 09 Jul 2009

Hi All

There was an a certain update not installing correctly and the yellow balloon asking me to install this update and when I tell it to install it failed.

I tried doing this so to the Windows Update Website still the same scenario occurred.

I tried Using the Windows Update Repair Tool No Joy.

I tried the SFC /Scannow idea still the same issue.

I also had a look at the Dial A Fix tool but that seems to have messed up Windows Update.

I can get the Windows Update Program to load no problem but I get an Information screen saying .

"Files Required To Use Windows Update are no longer registered or installed on your computer To Continue:

1. Register or Install The Files For Me Now (Recommended)

2. Let Me Read About More Steps that might be required to Solve The Problem

I go with Option One But I get this:

The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view. The options provided below might help you solve the problem.

Any Ideas Please Folks!

I would establish first if you really need the update, does it apply.... if it does

there is a known issue with NOD32 software

This from another forum.

If you find that Windows Update refuses to install most patches, you can register its missing DLLs yourself. This can be accomplished by manually entering seven commands (shown in Step 2, below) at a command prompt. If you need to run the fix on multiple machines, it's easiest to use a batch file, as Steps 1 through 5 explain:

Step 1. Open Notepad (or any text editor).

Step 2. Copy and paste the following command lines into the Notepad window (the /s switch runs the commands silently, freeing you from having to press Enter after each line):

regsvr32 /s wuapi.dll
regsvr32 /s wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32 /s wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 /s wucltui.dll
regsvr32 /s wups2.dll
regsvr32 /s wups.dll
regsvr32 /s wuweb.dll

Step 3. Save the file to your desktop, using a .bat or .cmd extension.

Step 4. Double-click the icon of the .bat or .cmd file.

Step 5. A command window will open, run the commands, and then close.

The next time you visit the Windows Update site, you should not have any problem installing the latest patches.
Never tried it so not sure if it works or not.

For those of you like myself that this didnt work for

I found an admin had removed messed with the update agent so although I was registering all of the required files nothing worked. My WSUS server would not send out the updates (116) that the machine needed so after searching I found this

This worked a treat
Use the Stand alone installer to install the Update Agent.
click here

If when you run this you get an message telling you its already installed then do the following.

Start > Run and type WindowsUpdateAgent20-x86.exe /wuforce

all is now well on this guys machine

Or how about last good configuration in safe mode.

I was having an idea on about removing the Windows Update Agent but I couldn't figure out how to do that.

I've just carried out a repair install of XP Still the same problem I've installed the Windows Update Update Suggestion what you said.

Ile see how this goes now.
