Windows 7: An update to improve the stability and reliability of 7

21 Oct 2009   #11

Windows 7 RC 7100 32bit/64bit

I have noticed that this particular update fails only on 7600 builds that have used the activator crack or something similar.

(e.g. replacing tokens.dat and pkeyconfig files and validating windows with 7100 keys)

Therefore , I strongly suggest to the users running 7600 to buy the so much appreciated product.Buy it, even if it was the only legal software you ever bought, cause this time, it's totally worth it.

Correct me if I'm wrong

Vista, Windows 7

Well I've got legit copies, no hacks or file changes and as I said I had success on one computer.

May have to wait for SP1 down the road?

not sure if it's going to be any help.


You may encounter temporary connection-related errors when you use Windows Update or Microsoft Update to install updates

I remember having this issue with Vista once, I just cannot remember how I got it fixed. Might be by cleaning the update cache.. don't really remember so I might be wrong.

Windows 7 32 bit
Here is a fix for this problem

Solution: My wife had this same problem with 27 updates that failed with error code 80071A90 . It turns out that it is all about your internet connection. It has to be an Ethernet connection and not a WIFI connection. This is because WIFI in many situations does a reset during the download and that causes errors during the update download. Temporarily changing to an Ethernet connection solved the problem along with only doing a few (sometimes just one) updates at a time and not all 27 updates at once.
