Windows 7: IE9 IE10 IE11 Update Error 9C59 & Kernel-EventTracing/Admin EventID 2

IE9 IE10 IE11 Update Error 9C59 & Kernel-EventTracing/Admin EventID 2


I believe you are on the right track when saying to marvinnash33 that the Error 9c59 problem is a missing WinSXS IE9 assembly.
Cannot update to IE10 (or 11) Code 9C59
I tried to uninstall IE9 and return to the default IE8 included with Windows 7. Cleaning out temp files lost the original IE9 Install folders, so I used a MS-FIXIT utility named MicrosoftFixit.ProgramInstallUninstall.MATSKB.Run.EXE

That MS-FIXIT fails on the IE9 uninstall with the SAME errors reported in the DISM Log and IE##_MAIN Log as found with the IE update/install failure.

DISM.Log error

2014-04-17 23:21:54, Info DISM DISM Package Manager: PID=4976 Error in operation: (null) (CBS HRESULT=0x800736b3) - CCbsConUIHandler::Error <-------BAM!!!!!! ERROR 0x800736b3 = "The referenced assembly is not installed on your system."
2014-04-17 23:21:54, Error DISM DISM Package Manager: PID=4976 Failed finalizing changes. - CDISMPackageManager::Internal_Finalize(hr:0x800736b3)
2014-04-17 23:21:54, Error DISM DISM Package Manager: PID=4976 Failed processing package changes - CDISMPackageManager::ProcessChanges(hr:0x800736b3)

The DISM Package Manager chokes on ERROR 0x800736b3, then kicks it back as failed to TrustedInstaller which reports the following:

clipped from IE ##_Main.Log
01:40.761: INFO: Installing with the extracted package. C:\Windows\TEMP\IE11900.tmp\
01:40.776: INFO: Launched package installation: C:\Windows\SysNative\dism.exe /online /add-package /packagepath:C:\Windows\TEMP\IE11900.tmp\ /quiet /norestart <--- TrustedInstaller just passed the CAB/Package processing to DISM via Command Line
02:24.145: INFO: Process exit code 0x000036B3 (14003) [The referenced assembly is not installed on your system. ] <---DISM just puked the extracted Package after one minute of processing: DISM ERROR 0x800736b3 and IE ##_Main 0x000036B3 (14003) both have the same description
02:24.301: ERROR: Neutral package installation failed (exit code = 0x000036b3 (14003)).
02:24.379: INFO: No reboot logic message NrApiInstallDone(7), lParam=0x00009c59 returned 0x00000000. <<-- TrustedInstaller (Windows Update) flubs the call for failure/exit code by reporting the message from the following line where NrApiInstallDone passes lParam=0x00009c59

It appears as if InPlace Upgrade is the Microsoft-endorsed, half-ass solution to the bogus 9c59 error when a REAL fix would be a MS-FIXIT that scans/fixes WinSXS IE Packages that DISM needs to properly finalize the Package install rather than passing a buried ERROR 0x800736b3 so TrustedInstaller reports the misleading 9c59.

I originally bought the Upgrade Installation DVD to go from WinXP to Windows 7 x32 SP1, then to Windows 7 x64 SP1. That Upgrade Installation DVD chokes on Windows 7 x64 SP1 when attempting an Inplace Upgrade, saying my current version already exceeds the (Inplace) Upgrade. Full re-install from scratch of Windows 7 and EVERYTHING ELSE is one-helluva-lotta work for the sake of a corrupt, missing, or BUGGED IE9 Package in WinSXS.

Even the Inplace is overboard for what this problem appears to be, but DAMNED if I can figure out how to put up an event trace session on the IE Install or the FIXIT IE9 Uninstall that finds out which WinSXS Package(s) the DISM needs to modify for finalize of the IE Browser change.

I'm also working on an EVENT ID 2 error where description is: Session "" failed to start with the following error: 0xC0000022
The upshot here seems to be a failed start on an event trace session named (null "") by User LOCAL SERVICE for the Process ID that Task Manager shows for Services BFE, DPS, and MpsSvc [Base Filtering Engine, Diagnostic Policy Service, and Windows Firewall]. I'm leaning toward thinking that one of the Startup Event Trace Sessions in Performance & Reliability is gets STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED 0xC0000022 because Trace Provider Service(s) logged on as User=LOCAL SERVICE are seeking to write Log files in C:\PerfLogs\Admin for Data Collector Set-> Startup Event Trace Session(s). LOCAL SERVICE isn't listed in Groups/Users having Security Permissions under Properties for Event Trace Session(s). Is that enough to make the Session fail?

The IE 9/10/11 Install "9c59 failure " and the "EventID 2 Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-EventTracing/Admin" are long-standing bitch-n-flame topics in the Microsoft Forums. Would be a nice feather in the cap for this Forum to find a REAL solution. BTW, you and Black Viper are given credit in solving MANY errors/warnings/SFC/SUR that I've had on this rugged, old truck I have for a PC (Intel Quad 6600 on an EVGA 680 SLI mb, 250GB & 3TB WD-MyBook, NVIDIA Geforce 640, 6GB ram. Had 8GB ram.... you would not BELIEVE the CRAp introduced through BSOD's and disk data corruption from an intermitantly bad 2GB ram chip.
