Windows 7: Security Update for Windows could not be installed

Security Update for Windows could not be installed

Been ignoring this box for a while now and I'll try one more attempt at a fix before wiping and reinstalling. It started when for the 1st time ever, Windows started installing updates w/o my initiating same. I looked up the error, saw several folks afflicted, followed MS advice on technet and support forums and after several efforts just gave up as i didn't have the time.

These are the last 4 entries in the Windows setup log

Windows update "Security Update for Windows (KB2871997)" could not be installed because of error 2147942487 "The parameter is incorrect." (Command line: ""C:\Windows\system32\wusa.exe" "C:\Users\JackN\Desktop\Windows6.1-KB2871997-v2-x64.msu" ")

Windows update could not be installed because of error 2149842967 "" (Command line: ""C:\Windows\system32\wusa.exe" "R:\Download\Microsoft\SystemReadinessTool\Windows6.1-KB947821-v33-x86.msu" ")

Windows update could not be installed because of error 2147943623 "The operation was canceled by the user." (Command line: ""C:\Windows\system32\wusa.exe" "R:\Download\Microsoft\SystemReadinessTool\Windows6.1-KB947821-v33-x64.msu" ")

Windows update could not be installed because of error 2147944018 "Another installation is already in progress. Complete that installation before proceeding with this install." (Command line: ""C:\Windows\system32\wusa.exe" "R:\Download\Microsoft\SystemReadinessTool\Windows6.1-KB947821-v33-x64.msu" ")

And last ditch ideas before I dedicate a weekend to rebuilding this OS / system. It serves as file server on a SOHO network.

I know this may sound pretty simple; but Im not sure if you have tried it or not; have you tried rebooting this server and then trying to install the updates? Sometimes it only takes something as simple as rebooting to refresh everything and enables windows to close out any processes that are open that arent needed so you can hopefully try and run those update(s) again. If you try that and that does nothing; its possible you may have a corrupt windows update folder in which case you might be able to try a system repair off the windows disc if you have one somewhere and that may help. If you try both things and still get nowhere with it; post back and we can go from there.

Matts:

This isn't a true "server" in that it manages apps and licenses and is up 24/7. It's a simple "file server" for a SOHO (small office / home office) meaning that the users of the 4 office boxes keep all their files on it for the business and the home folks backup their stuff there. It runs Win 7 64 pro not a server OS. It's used as a CAD Workstation during the day and at night I been known to blast a few aliens / bad guys / monsters.

I have tried:

-Installing the update manually
-Installing from Safe Mode
-System Repair from Backup
-Windows Repair fro USB / DVD
-In place upgarde
-Run SFC SCan Now
-Reset Windows Update Componnets
-Chkdsk completes with no indication of problems

-scannow worked the first time I did it ..... now says Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation


Greg

I have tried the System Update Readiness Too ... it's mentioned in the last 3 error messages in 1st post

sfc /scannow created a 187 KB file that mostly says its moving things and ignoring directories with multiple owners but after rebooting it went to 1,162 KB.

The System Readiness Tool created a 65KB file w/ the following summary:

This is all I can add at this point as I'm on my lappie

Jack, I asked an Updates expert to look at this.

I'd have cbs and other requested logs ready from Windows Update Posting Instructions - Windows 7 Help Forums

Of course if you have less than a perfect install to begin with, you can enjoy Win7 perfect performance for the first time by following closely the steps for Clean Reinstall Windows 7

If we strip the summary down to the remaining errors, we get...

Code:
Found 190 errors
Fixed 165 errors
CSI Manifest Missing Total count: 2
CSI Corrupt Component Keyform Total count: 1
CSI Corrupt Identity Total count: 2
CSI C Mark Deployment Missing Total count: 20
I need to see the whole CheckSUR log file please, as well as the SFC data (you didn't mention if it found errors and fixed them?) - and also the actual COMPONENTS hive, as it appears to have been corrupted.
The fact that there were 5 corrupted Keyforms and a couple of corrupt Identities could indicate that there are problems with the machine's RAM.


I need to have a look at your COMPONENTS registry hive

Please copy the C:\Windows\System32\config\COMPONENTS file (no extension) to your desktop and then compress it - upload the compressed file to your favoured fileshare site (preferably Dropbox or OneDrive) and post a link.


Please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data

If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

Yes, as indicated in the first post, this was my last attempt to potentially avoid this step. Taking this box down essentially put me outta business until it's back up as no one has access to their files.

-The files are already up on one drive from when I tried to get help from MS. I just added the components file which is where I suspect the problem is and the CBS folder
https://onedrive.live.com/?cid=a95c5...A81FD1C5D5!105

-RAM passes 12 hour runs on MemTest 86+

- I did see that there is a new version on the Update Readiness Tool since I had the problem.... the files on the one drive site are from version 33.... ran v34 and it completed. It completed and ran after which I ran Windows Update. Pror to this, it gave an error after about a minute..... it;'s now been searching for about 10 minutes so I will report back when done.

- OK Ran the Update tool a 2nd time just to make sure and after rebooting got a popup to update Defender. Took quite a while but it finally finished. Ran Windows Update again and got the familiar 80070246 error after quite a while.

- Next Tried the MS FixIt tool KB971058 .... It completed saying that It did not detect any problems.

- Found this which again reinforces the "feeling" that it's the components file ... this apparently required manual editing of the components file.
[SOLVED] Windows Update nor working (Error code 80070246) - Sysnative Forums

I also looked at a solution using AIK but users who tried it got nowhere so didn't bother

Hope this is enough....

On a side note .... I have a vague recollection of trying this already and not being able to get anywhere .... I installed Windows via UEFI USB method, is an in place upgrade a potential solution using the original DVD ?

Much thx for your assistance.

(I don't know how well that will survive HTML... - better than I expected, but it's still much worse than it looks.)

I'm going to have to dive in with a hex editor and try and remove/repair all the problematic entries, and then see where we get to.

It may take a while - because there will probably be a lot that the scanner I used isn't showing.

I'll try and get back to you tomorrow with a new version for testing.

Much thx.... the thing that gets me is that I never let Windows do anything automatically. I prefer that I install updates manually and if Windows update says I need 17, I generally do them in smaller groups and always after backing up registry before hand.

This time I was running AutoCAD most of the day.... went to shut down and Windows on it's own decided to install updates. Apparently this update did this to a lot of people as their support forums were clogged with people who all had the same problem with the same update (KB287119970
