Windows 7: WU Reset/Reregister bat works for x64?

WU Reset/Reregister bat works for x64?


Had similar problems to the OP here this morning with my Win7(x86) laptop:
SP1 installation problems
(Couldn't get SP1 even to download - suspect it might have been some corruption b/c of high server load. Stalled at ~30% several times, ~92% once. Ended up canceling several times.)

Had already read this:
Troubleshoot problems installing a service pack for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2
And had done all the steps, including installing KB947821, to no avail.
Rebooting, clearing temp files, etc. No joy.
I assumed it was going to require some sort of clearing/resetting WU.

So, I followed Shawn's OPTION 2 here:
Windows Update - Reset

It was a bit scary, seeing all the stuff scroll by in the DOS window.

BUT........... it worked!!!!


Second (and real reason for posting):
Should I get to a similar point in the process on my x64 desktop, are the WU reset and reset/reregister bat files compatible with 64-bit, too????

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (64-bit)

Hello there.

Yes. the bat is completely compatible with 64-bits Windows :)

Do you have a problem downloading the SP1 update?

OEM Windows 7 Ult (x64) SP1

Hi, punskter:

Thanks for the quick reply.
Yes, I *did* have a problem downloading, and it was only with the SP1.
(Never had issues with WU or any other downloads, or with wireless network to HSI (cable) router or bandwidth.)

It was 08:00 AM local time here in US, and I suspect the first failed download may have been due to high server load. It was downhill from there. Never even got to the installation step.
I knew better than to keep trying and canceling, but...

Anyway, the reset/reregister bat worked like a charm and didn't wipe out my WU history.

Plan to take a break for a while before tackling the 64-bit desktop.
Perhaps it will proceed a bit more smoothly!

I see.

Hopefully the WU reset will help you getting the SP1. although you could download it from the microsoft website, too.

Keep us updated :)

OEM Windows 7 Ult (x64) SP1

All OK here - please mark this thread as solved.
Didn't need the Windows troubleshooter, the MS hotfix or the BAT file.

A bit hair-raising, to be sure, despite having backups of everything and having done SPs with XP and Vista many times.

Thanks for the help -- I'm sure I'll be back with other questions at some point.
