Windows 7: SP1 x64 Won't Upload...I have tried everything!

SP1 x64 Won't Upload...I have tried everything!

I have been trying different fixes for 3 days now and I still cannot get Windows 7 SP1 x64 to update on my machine. I have tried everything that I have seen on these forums to try and fix the issue but I still get this code when trying the install:

80073712

Is SP1 critical? Can I let it ride for a while and see if any new patches come out? I do not want to reload Windows as I have a ton of applications and programs that are native to work and I don't have time to reload everything.

Windows Update error 80073712

The System Update Readiness Tool for Windows can correct some conditions that cause Windows Update error 80073712 error. To learn more about this tool, go to What is the System Update Readiness Tool? on the Windows website.
If the System Update Readiness Tool does not correct the problem, you'll need to repair Windows. Repairing Windows won't damage your personal files or the programs that are installed on your computer.
Once you finish the repair, you'll need to rerun Windows Update to install any updates aren't included on the installation DVD. To repair Windows, follow these steps:
  1. Close all programs, and then restart your computer.
  2. Insert the Windows DVD into the computer's disk drive. Wait for Setup to start. If Setup doesn't start automatically, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, and then type Drive:\setup.exe in the search box, where Drive is the letter of your computer's DVD drive (for example, D:\setup.exe).
    2. In the Programs list, click Setup.exe.
  3. Click Install Now.
  4. Click Go online to obtain the latest updates for installation (recommended).
  5. If you're asked for it, type the Windows Product key.
  6. In the Which kind of installation do you want? window, click Upgrade.
  7. When the installation is complete, restart your computer, and then run Windows Update.

Error 80073712 occurs when the Windows component store is corrupt. The component store holds the files and information that's used to install updates. The System Update Readiness Tool checks and repairs corrupt files and registry data. Read the "More information" section of the Description of the System Update Readiness Tool article on the Microsoft Support website for details.
Error codes this applies to:
  • WindowsUpdate_80073712
  • 0x80073712

I've done all of the above also and still get the error...running sfc /scannow reveals a corrupt file but it cannot be repaired??

I need some help here, folks!

Haha, no problem!

I am stumped on this one! I'm not sure what to do but I can not re-load Windows at this point. I've even tried in-place install to repair Windows 7 and it still reported the corrupt file but would not repair.

I have done all of the following:

Disk Cleanup
Defrag
Hotfix from Microsoft (as recomended by the error details)
Renamed upload distribution file
Ran sp1 upload from stand alone file
Repair install from disc
sfc /scannow with disc

That's about it so far...

RocketFoot,
Please go to this link:What is the System Update Readiness Tool?

Download and run the System Update Readiness Tool.

Other than the sp1 update, is your Win 7 100% up-to-date?

Tried that just now...I also tried changing my start-up to test mode just incase any apps/programs were interfering. Still no go!
