Windows 7: Update KB2726535(x64), Error 0x80070490

Hello tom982,

thanks for offering your help. It is an MSDN(AA)-license - dunno if that means OEM or retail- and I would be able to get a new license for free. So i am willing to trust you anyway. A MGADiag should not be needed, i suppose?

MSDNAA licences for Windows could be either MAK or Retail - but not OEM.
Please ensure that you have run Belarc Advisor to retrieve your Key(s) for safe-keeping just in case everything goes wrong!

If it's a MSDNAA license, then I think it's best if you do a repair install:

Repair Install

The hive that I would be editing will contain your product key, and it's best to keep that safe.

Good luck!

Don't forget to back up to external media first, in case things go wrong.
