error 0x80073712 AGAIN

Q: error 0x80073712 AGAIN

OK, I'm pretty *** right now!

I bought my laptop brand new in September with Vista preinstalled. I tried to update the system but I couldn't because apparently Microsoft *** up Vista so bad that they didn't even bother testing it properly before the release date to see if it works at all. As we all know, Microsoft is in a monopol market position so it can treat its customers in whatever *** way it wants to.

Ok, enough of the vent.

I spent 1 week tring to figure out how I can update Vista because I kept getting error 0x80073712 all the time. It turned out that the problem was that when Microsoft released Vista, some of the system files were corrupt, and that prevented me from updating. What's more, I was also informed that I could only resolve this issue by reinstalling Vista from CD which I did not have, because I got it preinstalled on my laptop! So, there is no way I can ever get any updates?!?? Naturally, the information that I found on the Microsoft support page was a piece of **.

(The "Windows Features" dialog box is empty in Windows Vista, or you receive an error message that includes the following code when you try to use Windows Update: "0x80073712")

Nevertheless, I still did a system scan, and it didn't produce any results, just as I expected.
After one week of struggling to find a way out of the ** microsoft kindly dumped on me, I found a tweak on another forum, which finally worked!! I had gone through like 10 different solutions before but to no avail. At last, I was able to install updates!! Yay!
But guess what! About 5 days ago, a new update agent v.7.2.6001.788 was released, and I cannot install it because I KEEP GETTING ERROR 0x80073712 AGAIN!! What's more, I again can't install any updates at all!!. WHAT THE H*ELL!! I'm so sick and tired of this!! Why do i have to put up with all this **? I already spent 1 week figuring this one out, and I could download updates for almost 3 months.... It's their fault that they had the guts to release Vista with corrupt system files not mine!!

I need a solution that actually works this time, please!

Preferred Solution: error 0x80073712 AGAIN

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.)

Anyone had this before?


Yes, I have seen it before. It is not exactly uncommon. In all previous cases that I have dealt with, it has always been in error. Looking over the CBS.log file showed that SFC did in fact scan very few, or no, files. Often the CBS.log actually showed an error which SFC did not graphically report. In my experience, there are certain errors which SFC cannot recover from. In these cases, it stops part way with a 'Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation' error message. When it finishes too fast, despite claiming success, it often has had one of these fatal errors anyway, if I remember correctly.

Now, I could take the CBS.log, and see what seems to be going on, but if you ask me, it isn't worth it unless you have a problem. If your computer has a problem, which is why you ran SFC, then I shall take a look, but if all seems well, then you risk more by fiddling.

A:Error code 0x80073712

Hello Paul!

Thanks for letting me know about that error

Error code 0x80073712 maps to ERROR_SXS_COMPONENT_STORE_CORRUPT. This error is one of the few which can cause SFC to fail. These two are definitely linked.

As you have seen, SFC is not robust enough to deal with corruptions when its store copy is also corrupt. It can deal with problems when it has a clean store, but a corruption elsewhere, but when its store is damaged, it fails.

Therefore, we need a second tool downloaded from the internet with its own store built into the download to identify problems in the store. I also intend to take a copy of the CBS.log, just to diagnose what exactly is corrupted, how badly is is corrupted, how to fix it if it is possible to fix, or whether it does not actually need to be fixed (I doubt this scenario). At the moment, I am just diagnosing what is wrong, and what needs to be done.

Please download this independant tool (the System Update Readiness Tool) from here: Description of the System Update Readiness Tool for Windows Vista, for Windows Server 2008, for Windows 7, and for Windows Server 2008 R2 and install it.

Once it has installed, please copy the C:\Windows\Logs\CBS folder (the whole folder, please) to your Desktop, right click on it > Send to > Compressed (zipped) folder, create a new thread in this forum: http://www.sevenforums.com/windows-updates-activation/ (It is better to keep something like this in its own thread, and leave this thread for simple on...

Good afternoon! From what I've seen in a Whole Lot of Googling, this forum seems to have the most targeted, successful support for the kind of issue I'm seeing.

I've been running Win7 Home Premium for a few years, and every single Windows Update has run successfully (with a snag now and then) except SP1, which returns error 0x80073712 every time.

I've disabled SpyBot S&D and AVG Free, but MS Security Essentials is still running.

I ran SURT (Windows6.1-KB947821-v34-x64), which completed.
(And I discovered I've been attempting to resolve the issue with SURT since September 2012, v22!)

Ran SFC scan as Admin:

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.
Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

Collected CBS.zip from C:\Windows\Logs

Attempted update again.

New error code: 80070002. Followed WinHelp to stop Windows Update service, deleted temporary update files, restarted update service, checked again for updates.

Attempted update again. Found 1 critical (SP1) and 2 optional. Didn't note what they were.

Cancelled install during Win Live Essentials 2011 update. Restarted SP1-only update.

80073712 returned.

Re-collected CBS.zip from C:\Windows\Logs

(I tried to attach CBS.zip, but at ~30MB, it's well over the 8MB limit. Any particular logs you could use instead?

I've come across a Windows 7 Professional SP1 x86 system which attempts to install

KB3108664 daily, and fails daily with error 0x80073712. It has been doing this for weeks and weeks.

Please note: All other Windows updates both before and since are updating successfully. Only KB3108664 is failing.

What I have tried already:

sfc /scannow - cleanSystem Update Readiness ToolWindows 7 Update Troubleshooter - several times
All run successfully.

But KB3108664, and only KB3108664, continues to fail every time with error 0x80073712, both when run through Windows Update, and also when downloaded and installed manually.

I looked at LOGS\CheckSUR.log, and something is definitely wrong with this update. But I do not know how to interpret what I am looking at or what to do next.

If you need any further info, please let me know.

Thanks in advance for your help.

First of all, please forgive my real clumsy English - I hope it's at least understandable.

I have difficulties with the last MS patch (July 9), the KB 2844286 (something with .NET Framework 3.5.1) doesn't install. I tried first to delete the accompanying Files KB 2832414, 283946 and 2840631 and then a re-updating, but again for the KB 2844286 fails with the

error 0x80073712 (error_sys_component_store_corrupt)

The checksur.log shows several errors (cbs.zip)

sfc /scannow shows one error with wimgapi.dll (hashmismatch) which cannot repaired, because source file is also corrupted (sfcdetails.txt).

lossless repairing with the Win repair system isn't possible, because user-, program- and windows-folders are not in the same partition.

In other threads, I saw very profund and competent answers, so I hope someone can help me too!

Appreciating your help very much!

64-bit Windows usually has a COMPONENTS hive of 38-60MB - and yours is only 28MB
Opening the file in a Hex editor, it's obvious that something has totally corrupted it - it appears to be an extract from a CBS.log file!

Unless you have a System Restore point that's from before the problem started, then I'm afraid that your only options are either a repair install or a clean install.

You have almost 200 missing files according to the CheckSUR report - but none, according to the SFC report.
This indicates some major mismatch between the registry and the file system.

I've tried installing the latest updates, Vista SP1, and even the WU client update. I get the same error every time. What is the cause of this? Is there a fix aside from using HP Recovery?

A:Windows Updates continuously failing. (0x80073712)

Did you install these important updates before trying to install SP1?

I'm running Windows 7 Pro on my Dell laptop. This laptop has been in storage and hasn't been turned on in a year. Originally, all I wanted to do was use iTunes. The problem:
It made me update it in order to use it, but I got an error.
I un-installed it and tried downloading a fresh copy and I get the following error:
After some Googling, I read that not having the latest Windows .NET framework might be the problem. Sounded reasonable so I fired up Windows Update but that gave me an error and wouldn't start checking for updates.
I managed to get it to check for updates, but now when it starts the process, I get the following:
I Googled the error code "8007007E" and tried a few things to try and fix it.
I downloaded the windowsupdatediagnostic.diagcab, found on Microsoft's site, here:http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/troubleshoot-problems-installing-updates#1TC=windows-7
I tried resetting the Windows Update reset tool, using "MicrosoftFixit50202", found here:http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9665683
I download the system readiness tool, found here:https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=3132
I tried a clean boot.
I tried renaming the Windows Update Softwaredistribution folder.
None of this worked.
I ran the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe) and the results said I had bad files, but I don't know how to fix them. It generated a CBS log, which is too large for me to post (10MB) , so I've uploaded to dropbox,... Read more

I had a very bizarre problem today. I downloaded about 50 .mpg files and put them into a folder on my desktop. I opened one of them, and it worked fine, but after that every time I even opened the folder that the files were in, only half of the thumbnails would appear and then it would tell me that I had a Visual C++ Runtime Error, from explorer.exe aborting. At the same time as this, windows would pop up a little message saying that my virtual memory was low. Later, it popped up a message saying that my Media Player needed to be reinstalled and that my Norton Antivirus needed to be reinstalled. Then it disabled my Norton Firewall and my Norton Antivirus. Lastly, I started getting error messages telling me that my soundcard needed to be configured to handle voice files, by enabling hardware acceleration. The only problem with that was that Windows would not let me access the advanced sound settings!

I am running Windows XP (all patches up to date), 256 MB Ram, 75 Gig HD - so I figured the "low" virtual memory had to be an error. I tried tripling the virual memory to 1GB and also tried letting Windows automatically set the virtual memory size, but neither of these fixed the problem. My immediate thought was that it was a virus or trojan, but Norton VirusScan, Swat-It Trojan Scanner, and System Suite VirusScan all failed to detect anything, and all of them have their definitions up to date.

I ran a Google search to see what other things I should try and none of the... Read more

Ive just bought some new memory (TWIN2X4096-8500C5C G), the new memory doesnt seem to work unless I only add one stick, and even with that I get blue screen errors.

So from reading a few pages on teh internet I put my old memory back in, and ran windows driver verifier. Upon restarting I got and keep getting teh following BSOD.

IO SYSTEM VERIFICATION ERROR in wmiacpi.sys (WDM driver error 20e)

[wmiacpi.sys+152f at B7C5C52F]

A:Blue Screen IO Error. Verification Error In Wmiacpi.sys (WMD Driver Error 20e)

If the system ran fine...before you added RAM...then you need to see if the new RAM (by itself)...works.The new RAM may not be compatible with your old RAM, in which case the system will run fine with one or the other...but not both.The Driver Verifier tool is tricky to use, I would disregard that effort...for the moment.Remove your old RAM...put the new RAM in...see if the system works properly.FWIW: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/153175/blue-screen-io-error-verification-error-in-wmiacpisys-wmd-driver-error-20e/Louis

Are you sure of the spelling of the 2nd file name? If so, Google doesn't give any results for it - which is suspicious.The first file name ( wmiacpi.sys ) is a Windows file that's used to help manage the ACPI settings in your system. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/filedb/wmiacpi.sys-7763.htmlA BSOD error will usually point to the file that the error occured in, but this may not be the source of the error. Here's a link on how to find more info about the BSOD message: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/top...tml#entry409491Once you locate the .dmp files for the event, you can use this link to generate an analysis of the dump for us to have a look at ( http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=35246 )

Hello there. I have been redirected here by jamanji, whom has been most helpful by the way.
My PC crashed a little over a week ago.
Rather than retype everything, I would like to give you the link to my post.
I am not 'Tech' per se, but I would like to try and resolve my problem myself,
To make a long story short... I had error 0xc000000f. I have 2 threads on the subject, but the first thread was useless.( I think)
I read gregrocker's tutorial.
I made a Kaspersky Disc. I have a Pop Up from Kaspersky.
saying if I continue...........

Here are the links.

confused by what type of disc to use

Error 0xc000000f

If you read this...Thank you for your time.

A:Burnt out from error error error! Time to go back to Paper.

Ok mate one thing straight up the Kaspersky only requires a CD you can use a DVD but seriously a waste of useable space. Have been using Kaspersky security and tis rescue disk for years now so just the CD mate.

Just follow the prompts when you run the disk. It will boot (of course) but will not need Windows to do anything.

There are other options -

Bootable AntiVirus Rescue CD for Windows: Free Download any are good and again do not require Wndows to run.

If you can get it going then I would try this

Hey guys, having trouble getting XP to Update, well it did Update MSRT and failed on Flash as usual because I removed Flash.  The only thing I can think of that I changed was my Router settings to more aggressive, but it has not affected Windows 7?
This is the ms document on it: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/883820
I tried all the stuff they say there but none works.  I have SP3.
I am also being sent to this site, which don't look like it should.

I have reasons to believe that you have a file infector onboard.
Please visit this website - http://virusscan.jotti.org
Submit the file for a comprehensive scan & then post the results back here.


If it's virut, you need to wipe the machine immediately. Do not connect this machine to another one for you will infect that one too

Ok so my first problem was what I thought the sasser worm. I researched it online and I can't find any traces of it anywhere now. I ran a few spyware checkers and stuff and I think I may have messed with some registries.

Now I cannot access the internet and heaps of things are stuffing up. I disconnected my internet and upon startup get this.

A "Data Execution Prevention" window that closes "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services".

I press OK and that goes away. I found some suggestions online but none of them seem to work. That's my first problem.

My computer runs fine until I connect my internet. It runs alright for a minute or two before I get this error.

The instruction at "0x00401000" referenced memory at "0x00401000". The memory could not be "written". Which has recently been appearing at the same time as AVG saying a threat has been detected at "C:\WINDOWS\drivers\atimixx8.sys"

After this has come up I can press OK to terminate the stop error, or cancel to debug. Either one does nothing but stops my internet from working, and the internet on other computers in my house (we are all on a network). When I try to heal/move to vault/delete the AVG threat, it says I don't have permission.

I've thought about just formatting, but I have seen people who say that even with a format, the problem still persists.

Please help!

Just got a new computer and am trying to install my Philips Mini HiFi sytem. Contacted their support centre and they don't know what to do! The stereo system simply plugs into a usb port and plays your audio through their system. The only difference between the system it worked on a few days ago and now is that I am running Windows Professional x64.

The problem:

three things to install:

1. the Philips drivers. Philips support got me to download their drivers for Win XP.

When I install this the error rec'd is: "Install 2.15 setup. While installing drivers Plug and Play error detected. Please reboot and try again". I reboot and try again, same thing.

2. The program "Sound Agent" to run the show. When I install the Sound Agent program, the error rec'd is: "VDI32.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close".

3. MusicMatch to channel the audio through to it. (Seems ok but tells me it's out of date - no biggie I can deal with that).

In Device Manager there is "Unknown Device" listed under System Devices shown to be not installed (the yellow exlamation mark through it). When I try to Update Driver it says, "Cannot Install this hardware. The hardware was not installed because the Wizard cannot find the necessary software".

Finally, whenever I reboot I get the error message: "The QVE bus driver is not detected. Reinstall the Qsound Virtual Audio Devices Bus Enumerator driver".

Hello all,

I have a problem with Windows Update agent on Windows 7 SP1 enterprise.
We are using Configuration Manager 1606 and Windows 7 SP1 and about 140 computers works without any problem.
On the other 10 computers I got the following error message in the windowsupdate.log:
WARNING: SyncUpdates failure, error = 0x8024400D, soap client error = 7, soap error code = 300, HTTP status code = 200
WARNING: SOAP Fault: 0x00012c
WARNING:     faultstring:Fault occurred
WARNING:     ErrorCode:InvalidParameters(7)

I've tried several actions although none does any help. Here is the list of actions:
- upgrade windows update agent to the latest version
- windows update agent reset by this instructions https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/971058/how-do-i-reset-windows-update-components
- empty Temporary Internet files
- check the rules and blocked traffic on windows firewall and physical firewall between server and workstation vlan
- sfc /scannow

It looks like significant Windows 7 error, although reinstalling is not my option.

Thanks for any help!
