Windows 7: Can't install updates using windows update or standalone update

05 Mar 2012   #11

Windows 7 Home Premuum 64bit

Was looking thru my event log and I noticed this.
Faulting application name: TrustedInstaller.exe, version: 6.1.7601.17514, time stamp: 0x4ce7989b
Faulting module name: wcp.dll, version: 6.1.7601.17592, time stamp: 0x4da00342

I went looking in winsxs folder and I found 2 different folders these file versions are in


the first one was created 12/30/2011 and the other was created 12/27/2011
it looks like a registry problem now, and the trusted installer is being pointed to the wrong folder.
since sfc doesn't seem to work is there another way to correct this entry?

I wouldn't worry too much about teh versioning - they are normal
You seem to have a variety of problems, stemming from failing RAM at some point - this means that anything written to the HD during that period is questionable. Your best option, and quickest recovery is almost certain to be a clean install, even if it is painful.

Think yourself lucky - I have to create 6 new VM's and update them (but at least I can do the updating in the pub )
Good luck with the reinstall.
