Windows Cannot Installed Required Files

Q: Windows Cannot Installed Required Files

Whenever I try to install Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit I get this error: Windows cannot install required files. The file may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code: 0x80070570 I know my memory isn't bad because I've run memtest for a few hours already. So how do I fix this problem? I have installed WIndows 7 on my computer before with this same exact installation cd.

Preferred Solution: Windows Cannot Installed Required Files

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

1. I was configuring Outlook 2003 to receive/send my gmail.
2. I was having problems so I was recommened to visit the Windows Update site to check updates that I may be missing.
3. In the middle of windows checking for updates I was told that it had an error completing the scan.
4. Since then, my computer is EXTREMLY slow to start.
5. When I go to Microsoft to check for updates it tells me:

To do this firstly click on the “Start” button then “Run” and enter the following command into the “Run” dialog box

regsvr32 wuapi.dll

You should then receive a message to say it was successful. The above process then needs to be done for each of the following commands:-

regsvr32 wups.dll

regsvr32 wuaueng.dll

Hello,

Is there a list of hotfixes that are required to be installed prior to installing SP1?

I am trying to slipstream SP1 into an installation DVD for Windows 7. It works fine, however, after I installed my newly created DVD, I found an update that said "You must install this patch before you install SP1. If you have already installed SP1, please uninstall it, reinstall this patch, then reinstall SP1." Obviously I want to integrate that patch before I slipstream SP1.

Is there a list of patches that need to be applied before SP1 is applied?

Thanks,

hi there, this question may of been asked elsewhere. What files and folders does Windows need to run? That doesn't include Microsoft Works/Office, just THE basic things that are needed for Windows to actually 'be alive'.

A:Required Windows Files

Not to avoid answering your question, which at first seems a rather simple one to answer but turns out to be somewhat complex, but why are you asking this question? And there are different interpretations about what it would mean for Windows to "be alive," since it could be alive, but not DO anything.

I bought a new SSD and want to do a clean install on it, however am having problems during the install process and receive the following message:

Windows 8 cannot install required files. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code: 0x8007025d
The install images was downloaded from the Microsoft website and I have tried using a USB thumb drive and DVD install disc and both receive the same error. I have used the DVD disc when I originally installed Windows 8 Pro on the same desktop but on an IDE harddrive and believe the disc should still work (i.e. no scratches on it).

Here's how I prepared to install:

1. Unplugged all harddrives except for brand new SSD (Crucial M4 128 GB SSD)
2. Changed bios settings to AHCI (before was on IDE) (using Asus P5k-V motherboard)

I'm not sure what's going on if the harddrive is corrupt, the bios settings need to be tweaked, the drive is incompatible with my motherboard or something else.

Any help would be much appreciated as I don't want to go back to using the IDE drive to boot windows but rather use the new SSD.

TIA

I also tried plugging the SSD into another SATA port. When I tried installing Windows 7 on the same SSD, I got a similar error as well during the install, which spits out the error around the 10% progress mark

Im installing from a bootable USB and i've already tried using a different 4gb usb, a different vista iso file, different programs to make my usb bootable and different partition configurations.

Attached is what disk management looks like. Win 7 is installed in C:
Thanks for you help guys

A:Windows cannot copy files required for installation. Error 0x80070070

Where did you get Vista? Check the HASH against official HASH.

Perhaps you can borrow an external DVD drive to try install.

I'm assuming you don't have a DVD drive or you wouldn't have gone to all the effort to try different USB writing methods. The one which always works for me is UltraISO trial version: Open ISO on file tab, Write Disk Image on Bootable Tab, Format, Write. Then boot under USB or HD's.

If this fails, I'd reset the BIOS CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

If this is a PC do you have another HD to try install upon? If so unplug Win7 and wipe the target HD first. Then after install plug back in Win7, boot preferred first in BIOS, then boot the other using BIOS Boot Menu.

If UEFI follow these special steps for Install, otherwise enable Legacy BIOS or Compatibility Support Module to proceed with normal install.)

Then boot into Windows 7 installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed OS version here. Your installer is questionable so if it fails after one more attempt, try another ISO burned with tool in link, then try flash stick method.

I have noticed this issue today.  When I was moving some files from my phone to my laptop, it displayed the message "calculating the time required to copy the files," loaded more time than it should have, and then did the transfer. This has never happened before.  It normally just jumps right into the file transfer process without that delay.  Does it have something to do with the amount of files in a folder or something else, because I just dd a transfer of two zipped files and they did not display that message.  Can someone explain why my computer displayed this message?
 
Windows 7 (64-bit)

A:annoying "calculating the time required to copy the files message" on windows 7

Yes - you are correct, it is the quantity of files. As far as I know, it will do this for one little text file as well, but since the time taken for the calculation is so short, the message doesn't have the time to show.
 
Obviously, since the time taken for calculation depends on the amount of data, there comes some critical level when the time is long enough for the message to show. You get the same thing when moving files between drives inside the computer. Internally, on my own computer, it seems to be about 250Mb.

A few days ago I installed a windows update (they install automatically) and when I turned my computer back on all my files were gone! It looks like all my settings were reset to when I first got the computer except all of my programs are still there. At first I thought the windows updated did this, but I did some searching online and read that it was probably a virus, and I didn't believe it, but now I know I have some type of virus because whenever I type in a web address in my browser it redirects to some other websites.
 
Luckily it didn't actually delete my files, when I go to c:\users\lapaul (myusername) my files are still all there, but for some reason when I go to the documents folder or pictures folder, no files are there. It seems like when windows is loading it is loading into the public user profile, or some other user profile that's not mine and that is why my files are there.
 
So anyways, I don't know what happened, but there is a button on my laptop where I just press it and it resets my computer to how it was the first day I got it. So I am going to just do that, but I want to backup my files first.
 
So my question is, how do I copy my files to an external hard drive while making sure none of the files are infected and that they don't infect my external hard drive? I just bought a brand new 1TB external hard drive and I haven't even opened it yet, and I don't want to get it infected the first time I use it.

A:Installed a windows update now all my files are gone!

I suspect that your profile was corrupt.  If your profile was corrupt then windows logs onto a temp profile.  You can see this in your Users folder there will be a Temp directory.
 
This can be fixed.
 
Try this tutorial on how to fix a corrupt profile:

I was trying to download & install a new antivirus and found out it could not be installed because windows can not be updated. It states that the files required to use windows update are no longer registered or installed on my computer. I have no idea how or when this happened. My updates have always been set to automatic. My os is xp with service pack 3. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

A:windows update files are no longer installed

What particular AV gave you this message?

Hi,

I have purchased an old Dell Inspiron 510 m. I have got HP PSC 1210 all in one printer. When ever i put HP printer installation CD in the PC, after few minutes it ask me to put original Microsoft Windows XP CD which came with the laptop to complete the installation.

As i have purchased an old laptop, the seller didn't had the original windows XP CD which came with the laptop.

This is what it says exactly-

Windows File Protection

Windows Files must be installed for your installation to proceed

Insert your Windows XP Professional CD-Rom Now.

There are three choices- Retry, More Information. Cancel

I have also used 2 methods suggested by Microsoft but that didnt worked. Here are the solutions prescribed by Microsoft-

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324654

Please help as without printer installation, my work is getting affected.

A:Windows Files must be installed for your installation to proceed

I believe the only way around is to get a Windows XP CD - Home or Professional - depending on what you have installed. It doesn't have to be the one that came with the laptop though so if you have a friend you can borrow one from it should work fine.

Hi Guys,

I apologise if I have placed this in the wrong thread.

I've had Windows 7 for three weeks now (as a student, Microsoft gave me access to the MSDN Academic Alliance which had Windows 7 available to download).

So far so good overall, however I was going to install a game but it required me to install DirectX and so I installed it and rebooted and now Windows 7 has reverted back to it's original state, just as if I'd have re-installed Windows 7. All programmes gone.

The weird thing is that I can still see most of the files for my programmes, but all executable files have been deleted and nothing appears in 'All Programs'.

I am running Windows 7 Professional (64-Bit) if this helps.

Any help is greatly appreciated.


Kind regards,

David

I've never seen anything like that. Was System Restore somehow invoked?

See "help and support". You may be able to use a later restore point.

So I followed the guides and was able to install Windows 7 UEFI. GPT partitions verified once I booted into Windows.

I have an issue where I can boot into Windows 7 if I leave the Windows 7 USB stick in, but if I remove it, it boots up with Windows Loading Files and then just hangs, does nothing.

What do I need to do to fix this?

Thanks

I have been trying to do a clean install of windows 7 and I am now getting this message. I have probably done a clean install using the exact same disk 5 times before. I've tried formatting the hard drive and re partitioning. This is a custom build.

The thing that is interesting to me is that I then tried to do a clean install using a vista disk that I have, and I get a similar message.

However I am able to install Xp pro just fine. I've also tried switching out memory as well.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A couple threads mention adjusting RAID settings in the BIOS but I see nothing regarding RAID in my bios.

Hi everyone

I've built a brand new PC and decided that I would like to install windows 7 64 bit on my SSD, I got a disk+key from my university before christmas so that'd i'd be ready once i'd built it.

I built the PC yesterday and realised that I'd left my external DVD drive at my university accommodation, I'm at my parents house for christmas break so that's a few weeks left. I can't really wait that long so I used my parents laptop (which I'm posting from now) to turn the disk into an .iso and use the microsoft USB utility to make a USB stick that i could install from.

However when I tried the install gets to 'installing features' and gives 'windows cannot install required files' error code 0x80070570 I looked the code up on google which sent me to a lot of threads here, so far I've tried:

Taking all but 1 stick of ram out and the graphics card.
Reseting the bios to default
Installing again without rebooting after error.
using cmd to select the right partition

Nothing has worked, please help me I'm losing my mind

Hi,

Just to clarify, are you having trouble getting the ISO onto the USB drive? Im not sure whether that is your issue, or the installation from the USB. What size is the USB drive?

Can you have a look at this tutorial?

This is what is happening. A friend gave me his DELL Inspririon 531 2007 Desktop. It has a pirated copy of 7 ultimate x64 (which I am not sure if this supports 64 bit). Prior to looking into how old the machine was, I was able to install 8.1 64 bit. But it wouldn't allow me to install any drivers from the DELL site. Said that the machine wasn't compatible. So, I tried with Windows 7 32 bit and I am getting this error. I have deleted all partitions, but now, I do not have that option when I choose Custom-advanced. There is no Delete option.

A few times I got the error at 5% other times at over 60%. What can I do to get this to install? It is a legit DVD of windows. Why would it have allowed 8.1 to successfully install now it is doing this? What files are missing? I have tried both deleting the partitions and not deleting. Same result.

A:Clean install error Windows cannot install required files.

Install the correct version of windows that`s on the COA, either buy a new installer from Newegg or call Dell for Recovery CD`s.

The dvd you are trying to use is corrupted and no good.

I have an old laptop. It's not really old, it's about 2 years old. I have not used it for about a year. I was going to get it up to speed and give it to my sister. It's last Windows Update was DEcember 2004. It does have SP2 installed.

I booted it up, and went to do a Windows Update to get the thing up to speed. When I ran Windows Update, and selected EXPRESS, it bombed on an error that said something like:

The files needed for Windows Update are not installed or regestered on this PC. Would you like to download and install these files now? I select YES, the thing downloads and installs, then I try the WinUpdate again, and the process starts again, into a loop of installing and registering the missing files.

I exited and ran the Microsoft Genuine XP Active X deal. I thought that might be the problem. That Active X part ran, and the copy of XP was ceritfied as valid (it came with the laptop).

So, no matter what I do, I get the same error everytime I run WinUpdate.

Has anyone seen this before?

(It's a WinBook XP laptop, P4, WinXP SP2)

THANKS

I recently installed Windows 8.1 on a new drive but can no longer easily access my files on another drive that had those files under Windows 7. Many programs crash whenever they try to write to those drivers and so on, when I try to open a folder it prompts me to hit the Continue button using admin privileges.

How can I fix this?

e: I found a solution I think here: After Upgrading, all my programs require Admin Privileges? [Solved] - Access Data - Windows 8

I'm going through it now and will report my findings.

​Hi,
​I see you have already run several tools. when you ran FRST it produced another log called addition.txt that you can find in the same location you have FRST. Can you post that log. We will also get another tool to use.

​Usually Iam only on line once or twice per day so you may not get a response back from me until the following day.

​Download TDSSKiller (exe or zip version) and save it to your desktop.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/tdsskiller/
    Doubleclick on TDSSKiller.exe to run the application, then on Start Scan.
    Accept the EULA and KSN statement to continue the install
    Click the SCAN button to start.
    If an infected file is detected, the default action will be Cure, click on Continue.
    If a suspicious file is detected, the default action will be Skip, click on Continue.
