Windows 7: Windows 7 update failure

Windows 7 Professional x64
Windows 7 update failure

I installed all the updates that were released tonight, including the service pack upgrade. On installation of the service pack, there was an error that came up stating:

The program cannot start because sqmapi.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem

I have attached a screen shot of this.

I did try redoing the update and it failed once again.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This issue has been resolved: I left to go out to eat and somehow when I came back it was installed. My advice keep trying anyone else who encounters this problem.
