When installing a Windows Update, you receive an Error Code 80073712.

According to, 80073712 is ERROR_SXS_COMPONENT_STORE_CORRUPT The component store is in an inconsistent state.

From KB947821 I downloaded & ran the tool for my version of Windows. It can take a while.

When it was finished, I checked C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.log. It found one error.

Doing a Bing search for part of the bad manifest, I was able to determine it was KB3150513. I manually downloaded the update from the Microsoft Update Catalog ( then installed it on the computer. No more error!

Side note:

I didn’t have to do this but may have to also reset the Windows Update Components (
