Hi Vineet, I had a lot of errors hun. As seen in the scan health I ran there were 106 of them..oh my! It fixed 98 which was a wonderful thing and the 8 it did't fix I later fixed with it in a different scan using it. The DISM is an amazing feature that I really like having and need working. Fingers crossed someone here at this forum has an answer but my online search is still on. Computers are a constant work in progress. Hope you have a great day

Sir(s),
Now a whole thing is different! I was thinking DISM command was running successfully & telling some error in the results but it seems DISM Command stucks & does not run even! So even SURT can't do anything. The problem appeared with applying DISM Commands but it is all different. An all different system problem! Am i right ?

We should give her some credit ? How she is still firm about using DISM or the problem is appearing just because Microsoft's DISM can't run on Win 7 ? If the case is just that Microsoft's DISM can't run on win 7 it is not a problem at all ?

Now i am thinking she should check with DISM++ & tell what happens ?

Let me know.

Thanks & Regards. ...

Quick question, is there a way to remove DISM from my computer and reinstall it? Not sure if that would solve my problem but it may be worth a shot. I actually noticed the problem when I had the KB already installed on my computer but noticed it in my windows updates, I don't know why on earth it installed it again but it did and just like the first time it got stuck on install so I cancelled it. Thinking maybe it might have messed it up somehow.

@ ALL :
Posts are happening concurrently, They all should be integrated well before any conclusion!
1. Now you say some problem is with Windows Updates. Why to stick with DISM when it is not running. Work with SURT. It creates log files. In those log files it mentions problems with the windows updates. It was said that after installing SURT, those problematic Updates should be again installed manually in proper order & so on...
As said earlier, go thoroughly with that MS link.
2. Parallel to that try to find out / work out the other system problem.
3. You should try DISM++ as well.
4. You said DISM & SURT are same what is that ?? !!
5. You should also go through that EightForums link to understand the things better. As i am looking at your confidence, I think DISM works with win 7 partially & not in full as in win 8 or win 10. I am not sure.

Thanks & Regards. ...

Edit : Before i leave for today, i think i should again share those two links for easiness :

Hello Roy, My CBS log is great..no errors and in the C:\Windows\Servicing\Version\ there are 2 files..6.17601.23505 with amd64_64 installed and a x86_installed inside the folder the other folder is 6.1.7601.24383 with nothing in the folder.

Here is the final results of my CBS Log and the rest of it looks the same, it's all good.

Hello,

Never tried before, but if you had another Windows 7 64 bit computer, you could service the HDD from that computer. You would need to physically install your HDD in the second computer, and run the DISM command from there. Because the servicing is being carried out on another computer, you could service the HDD offline with something like:

Dism /Image: D:\offline /Cleanup-Image /Source:C:\windows, where D: is the drive letter that points to your unserviced HDD, and C: points to the main HDD of the second computer.

Hi ,
Not sure about that, since my options in windows 7 are limited with the DISM command and the only thing I was able to use was scan health. It is imperative I get it in a working state I feel so hopefully can find a resolution. I don't have access to another working computer at the moment to try unfortunately. It's really nice to get some feedback here though :)
