Windows 7: Getting an error code 80073712 while trying to install KB2799494

Getting an error code 80073712 while trying to install KB2799494

Hi there,

New to the forum and not an expert of computer at all.
One of the latest windows upgrade KB2799494 has failed to be installed. Error code 80073712. I'm using windows 7 Ultimate x32.
Several things I've already tried (by Googling):
System Update Readiness Tool, according to the logfile CheckSUR.log there're no errors.
ran the fix it tool (several different versions)from Microsoft, didn't do anything.
SFC check showed everything's fine. (but it finished really fast, like about 10 sec)
download the update and tried to install it manually, but no luck.
clean boot, windows troubleshooter, also no luck.

Other updates have been installed successfully but only this one, and this never happened before. Hope someone could maybe help.

The error code is often caused by a faulty driver set - which also causes other errors.

We need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool
(download and save to desktop - )
Once saved, run the tool.
Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.

Your installation of Office 2007 is counterfeit - based on a Blocked Volume License Key.

The errors I was expecting to see there aren't present - so you'll have to first try a System Restore back to before the update was attempted.
see You receive error code "0x80073712" or the "Windows Features" dialog box is empty when you try to install updates or components in Windows 7 or in Windows Vista

Assuming it completes OK, reboot again, then do a Clean boot, and do a manual Check for Updates, and try the install again.

thanks for the information.
About the restore, pity I don't have any restore point before the first attempt of trying to install the upgrade.
Any other thing I could try?

(How did I know that was going to be the response?? :/ )

Have a look in the Installed Updates listing - see if it's managed to get that far. If it has, see if it will uninstall.
I really don't currently have a clue how to address this problem, since CheckSUR gives me no clues.

I'll have another look through the CBS logs and see if I get any inspiration from them.

Ooops - forgot that you never posted the logs - please upload the CBS.log file after running another SFC scan.

man you must be some sort of prophet :-P just joking, you must have already met a lot of similiar situations.
Checked the upgrades listing, it's not there. should I post the CBS logfile? if yes, should I run something first like SFC check, because things are pretty a mess in my computer right now, have tried a lot of things.....
