Windows 7: Failure Configuring Windows Updates Message While PC is Restarting

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1 (primary partition) & Windows XP Pro 32-bit SP3 (on the same HDD)
 
 

No version of NET Framework was listed in Programs and Features after the repair install even though the registry said v2.0, v3.0, and v3.5 were installed, and v3.5.1 was showing in Turn Windows Features on or off. Then after doing exactly what you did after reading exactly the same things you mentioned in those logs that are generated when NET Framework fails to install (newer version already installed, 4.7.1, and so on), then NET Framework 4.7.1 was listed in Programs and Features. I decided to do the repair thing too to be safe after double-clicking that .msi thingo in the Installer folder.

The application I use daily that requires NET Framework 4.6.1 and didn't work after the repair install now works again after applying Kin's fix for NET Framework 4.7.1.

I should apologize, Kin. I realize you already asked before I made my previous post if NET Framework 4.7.1 was listed in Programs and Features. I didn't even look at the screenshot I posted before that, which I referred to in my reply about it, thinking that screenshot was an answer to your question. I thought I had opened Turn Windows Features on/off while I was in Programs and Features and took that screenshot then, but I had opened Turn Windows Features on/off while Installed Updates was displayed, and took that screenshot then. So I had the idea in my head that the screenshot showed something besides what it does.

And I'm sorry about marking this thread solved after accepting advice to do a repair install and writing something about suggesting others start threads where they may get help specifically dealing with their affected computer systems. I didn't mean to shut anyone out or end this discussion prematurely. It seems to me to be normal to use advice and solutions that worked for someone else--that's what I just did a bunch of including Kin's fix for NET Framework--but I kept reading all over the place at Seven Forums where it says not to apply solutions provided for someone else's computer to your computer, to start your own thread and get advice for your specific computer. Which I also understand the logic of.

Anyway, I was trying so hard not to do something wrong that I did something that didn't make proper sense. Sorry about that. Thank you all for sticking around and helping me fix the same issue on my computer after the repair install that Kin had with NET Framework after the repair install on his computer.

Hi Efdy,

IF I understand correctly, you basically did what I did for .NET framework (4.7.1) and your problem has been solved !!

If so, that's great !

I also noticed the problem of .NET because a couple applications didn't work after the repair install and had to do what I did.

Yes, that's right. I saw the same exact words and numbers in the NET Framework setup logs (or whatever they're called) that you quoted in post #55, and I did the same exact things you did about it. Which seems to have given me the same results. Thank you again for helping me that way, Kin.

Yeah, that was a relief for me. Hopefully that fix you figured out will prove to have been sufficient.

And for anyone who came to the end of this thread first looking for clues to a possible solution for the March/April Security Monthly Quality Rollup updates problem that may not involve a repair install (in-place upgrade) of Windows 7, in post #55 of this thread Kin elaborates on the following quote from his post.
