Windows 7: Strange behavior of Updates during recent installs

18 May 2015   #11

There's a persistent Error 7006 The ScRegSetValueExW call failed for FailureCommand with the following error: Access is denied. The error solution is given as running System Update Readiness Tool and Updates Troubleshooter. Doing both now. I ran Updates Troubleshooter at first when it looped on Check for Updates.

The error also seems to occur with concurrent AV issues with AVG or MSE. I have some MSE errors. I had Ninite install it. I'll try reinstalling it using Download AppRemover to Uninstall McAfee Antivirus, Avast, AVG and more suggested here: Malfunctioning Microsoft security essentials. - Microsoft Community

Lots of error 20's with various Updates failing.

Checking for UPdates says they're all installed.

This is actually a known problem - and has been around for a while, but does seem to have got worse lately. (it was a major talking-point in Win8 for a while, but I get the impression it's been fixed there now?)
The problem is I suspect to do with the way that the calculation of % completion is done.
As yet, I've seen no good explanation for it. and suspect that MS doesn't really want to mess around too much in Win 7.

Try adding this to UPDATE7\BIN\SOFT.REG

Quote:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

;CHECK BUT LET ME CHOOSE
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update]
"AUOptions"=dword:00000002

Appears to be a problem with a/v programs.

I haven't had an issue, but I am using Baidu.

Noel what exactly is suspected of miscalculating? Suggested Workaround? Set Updates to Download but Choose until topped off?

Thanks Si. I'll need to mount install.wim to regedit or rerun the slipstream to add that?

This install has slowed and I think its due to these troubles and fixes even though Admin log is clean now. I may reinstall with that reg fix to know for sure its not ISO updating issue.

Problem is I'm leaving OKC tmw for next stop FLL. So I would only have time for one reinstall which to be sure might need to be pristine unupdated ISO.

Posted this in MVP Yammer group in which it was suggested immediately after reinstall w/SP1 to install Enterprise Hotfix Rollup for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 Available Now - The Windows Server Essentials and Small Business Server Blog - Site Home - TechNet Blogs

There are also plans for Updates rollup recently announced at Ignite conference.

Sorry for the hiatus.
When re-installing, I always set to choose - generally, I prefer to avoid downloading anything that isn't going to be immediately installed (but it does depend on what sort of connection I have as well)

I tried that again yesterday, setting to choose Updates only. The first group installed and when I went back to Check for Updates it offered 72 which I selected and watched it stall at 0% Downloaded. Then I notice they are queued on the Shutdown button. Executed a Shutdown and all 72 installed - even though they had appeared not to be downloaded when I selected them!

Noel what do you know about that rollup? Is a rollup of hotfixes likely to smooth the way for rest of Updates, by installing it first?

I don't think the % displays accurately.
Did you look at Update History while it appeared stalled at 0% to see if they were processing ?

Not sure how Update history would reveal Updates which didn't even appear to be downloaded, then when selected stalled at 0%, until I notice they are queued on Shutdown button, already Downloaded and install at Shutdown?

It's repeated the same thing enough I'm convinced it is a major malfunction with Updates. But at the same time, I think that if one monitors the Shutdown button and uses it whenever it's flagged with yellow !, eventually all Important will be installed and then you'll have the chance to choose Optional - which sometimes has Drivers I want installed right away!
