Windows 7: Windows 7 x64 SP1 - Error 0x8007370b

Windows 7 x64 SP1 - Error 0x8007370b

Hi everyone

I've been having problems with installing both Visual Studio 2008 Express SP1 and Visual Studio 2010 Express (I've been trying to set up a project that uses npm, and one of the npm modules it uses is protagonist, which apparently needs a C++ compiler). The installers fail when installing Visual Studio itself, with an error message (attached).

Over the past several hours I've been browsing everywhere trying to find a solution, and as part of the search I've stumbled over these sevenforums threads:
Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate Update Error code 0x8007370b
Windows 7 Professional x64, trying to upgrade to SP1 Error 0x8007370b

Based on that and my CBS logs, it seems that I have some sort of registry corruption.
Now, I haven't reinstalled my Win 7 install for some time now, but consider myself a power user and have a working computer security knowledge so I'm pretty sure I don't have any (at least obvious) viruses or other malware. I'm running the standard MSE and the windows firewall.

My primary hard drive is a SSD, a Mushkin 120GB and so far I didn't see any signs of HDD corruption.

CHKDSK gives these results for the SSD (not sure how to hide a long paste in a "spoiler" tag):

SFC gives me this after a few seconds:

C:\Windows\system32>sfc /scannow

Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.


Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation.


I've tried CheckSUR as well, it installed one hotfix but didn't seem to solve anything.

I've attached the contents of my CBS directory, as well as my COMPONENTS registry key.

Thanks for any help; I'm about to give up.

Additionally, after the CheckSUR step (it seems), now when I try clicking on Check for Updates in Windows Update, it gives me an error: Windows cannot search for new updates, with the error code: 8007370B, the same one as before. That's the only error it shows.

One a side note, anyone know of a way to install at least the VC++ compiler (MsBuild.exe) without actually installing it (and failing)?

I need to have a look at your COMPONENTS registry hive

Please copy the C:\Windows\System32\config\COMPONENTS file (no extension) to your desktop and then compress it - upload the compressed file to your favoured fileshare site (preferably Dropbox or OneDrive) and post a link.

I've uploaded a file - sogaa.zip - to my OneDrive at Noel's OneDrive
Please download and save it to your desktop.
Right-click on the file and select Extract All, and save to the default destination (which should be a folder on the desktop)

Create a new System Restore point

Open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following commands.

REN C:\Windows\System32\config\COMPONENTS COMPONENTS.OLD1
COPY %userprofile%\desktop\sogaa\COMPONENTS C:\Windows\System32\config

If you get an error with either command, STOP THERE - do not reboot! - post for instructions.

Assuming both commands go OK, reboot, and run another CheckSUR scan - post the new CheckSUR.log file.

The run an SFC /SCANNOW and post the new (compressed) CBS.log file

Wow! Just rebooted, SFC works now.. 15% complete.. will edit post when it completes.

Thanks a lot! May I ask what did you do exactly? Thanks.

Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.

Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

Glad everything seems to be working again - good luck with it!
