"The update is not applicable to your computer" error when you install update 2853587 in Windows 7 SP1 with AD LDS.

Symptoms
This issue only occurs if you first install AD LDS OOB on a computer that is running Windows 7 RTM and then install service pack 1 for Windows 7. In this situation, when you try to install update 2853587 the update cannot be applied, and you receive the error message.

Cause:
This issue occurs because update 2853587 is parented on the RTM version of the Microsoft-Windows-DirectoryServices-ADAM-Package-Client package that only presents when AD LDS OOB is installed. However, after SP1 is applied, the version of the package is increased. Therefore, update 2853587 cannot be applied.

  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1, when used with:
    • Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter

P6: 4ce7c6b2
P7: c0000005
P8: 000000000001e48f
P9:
P10:

Cause:
This issue occurs because Windows Process Activation Service (WAS) does not clear a shutdown timer when WAS service is stopping. Then, a callback object is executed before the timer expires. Therefore, the access violation occurs.

Symptoms:

You receive broken messages in the Ftp command output logs on a computer that is running Windows.

Symptoms:
On a computer that is running Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista, or Windows Server 2008, the Ftp.exe utility creates broken messages in the output logs. When this issue occurs, applications that monitor the Ftp output messages may not work correctly.

This issue occurs under certain conditions. For example, this issue may occur when you apply some Ftp commands to a target location that does not exist. This issue may also occur if the language locale is not set correctly in the Ftp.exe utility.

For example, on a computer whose language locale is English, you use the lcd Ftp command to change the working directory to the C:\aaaaa directory:
ftp> lcd C:\aaaaa
If the C:\aaaaa directory does not exist, the expected output message is as follows:
Code:
\aaaaa: File not found
However, you receive an output message that resembles the following:
Code:
\aaaaa: F
Note The appearance of the broken message may vary, depending on the language locale in your computer.

Windows 7 Professional SP1 - x64 [Non-UEFI Boot]
 
 

This is rather a Fix-It solution than a hotfix provided by Microsoft using a .vbs script. Could be useful for those that have istalled from DVD/ISO media Windows 7 SP1.

I remember seeing those errors in the events viewer, not caring too much has it said "Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected" (thought there was no hurry).

It has fixed three errors in event IDs on my actual machine and i have used the Workaround.vbs script instead of the ready Fix-It solution, which the first have displayed the errors fixed.

Event ID 10 is logged in the Application log after you install Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

Symptoms:
After you install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1) using integrated media, you may see the following WMI error is logged in the application log after every reboot:


Log Name - Application

Source - WMI

EventID - 10

Level - Error

User - N/A

OpCode - Info

Task Cat - None

Keywords - Classic

Details - Event filter with query "SELECT * FROM __InstanceModificationEvent WITHIN 60 WHERE TargetInstance ISA "Win32_Processor" AND TargetInstance.LoadPercentage > 99" could not be reactivated in namespace "//./root/CIMV2" because of error 0x80041003. Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected.

Cause:
This originated in the Windows 7 SP1 DVD/ISO creation process. There was an issue in the creation process that caused a WMI registration to remain in the DVD/ISO. Since the registration is designed to work only during the DVD/ISO creation process, it fails to run on a live system and causes these events. These events are not indicative of any issue in the system and can be safely ignored. If however you want to prevent these events from getting generated and want to remove this specific WMI registration manually, please follow the steps mentioned in this article for running the workaround script.

More Information:
This particular Event ID 10 error message listed above can be safely ignored, this is not indicative of a problem with the Service Pack or with the operating system.
