Quick Post: Windows Update Error 80073712

March 17, 2017 Leave a comment

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

According to https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/947821, 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 (http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Search.aspx?q=KB3150513) 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 (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/971058)

Quick Post: Windows Update Error 13EC

February 11, 2016 Leave a comment

I know another Windows Update post. I’m just going through a backlog of stuff that I never published & just want to get it up here.

A while back I wrote about a very similar error when installing the .NET 4.0 Framework (KB982671). https://patrickhoban.wordpress.com/2010/09/29

When installing the .NET 4.5.2 Framework (KB2901907) you receive an error code 13EC.

1 13EC

If you try to install it manually you get an error that says, “An error was encountered. Unspecified error.”

2 13EC

If you watch the free space while installing the update you will see it drop down next to nothing.

3 13EC

I tried to free up some space by doing normal disk clean up (i.e. delete temp files, old profiles, etc.), shrank the WinSXS folder (dism /online /cleanup-image /spsuperseded). It got a little further but still no dice. Luckily it was a VDI so I could just “give” it more hard drive space.

4 13EC

I ran the update again & this time it worked.

5 13EC

As referenced in https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42642, this update requires 4.5GB of free space for both x86 & x64.

When checking for Windows Updates it fails with an error code 80244010.

From what I can tell it’s an intermittent connectivity issue (or firewall block, etc.). I had to click Try again a few times but then it worked.

To resolve the issue run a check disk. Be sure to select Automatically fix file system errors & Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors then click Start.

Windows Update Error Code 80243004

When running Windows Update it may fail with error code 80243004.

Error80243004

After that happens you will notice that if you expand the system tray there is a lot of white space.

SystemTray

To “resolve” the issue right click the Taskbar & click Properties. In the Notification area frame click Customize. Put a check by Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar & click OK. Now all the white space will be expanded in the system tray. Hover over all the white space & it will go away. Now run Windows Update again.
