Preferred Solution: CATALOG UPDATE MICROSOFT : How to download plugin add-on ActiveX ? (Windows Update Catalog)

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.)

Hi

I tried to download a file from catalog.update.microsoft.com and it shows an strange error when it asks to browse a location for download:
"The updates in your basket cannot be downloaded to the path you specified, because the path name is longer than allowed by Windows. Please select a new download path containing fewer characters."
It repeats the error and no matter what folder or location I select, even drive C.
This is the file I have added to download basket:
Windows Mobile 10 Production Bundle - OS 10.0.13111.218 update for 000-US based devices


Please advise me.

I?m using Internet Explorer 11 on 64-bit Windows 7 SP1.

I am trying to delete the ActiveX control called ?Microsoft Update Catalog?. 
Using Tools > Manage add-ons, I have succeeded in removing the control from
Downloaded controls.  But the control still remains listed in
All add-ons.  And its file, MicrosoftUpdateCatalogWebControl.dll, remains in C:\Windows\System32. 
If I try to delete the control through All add-ons >
More information, I find the Remove button is greyed out.

Can anyone explain what it happening and why I can?t delete/remove the control completely?

Do I have to unregister the control manually using Regsvr32 /u? 
If I did that, would it remove the reference to the control in All add-ons? 
And would I then be able to delete the DLL?

Trying to download KB3081444.  Only options offered are microsoft.com/downloads, which doesn't have it, and the Microsoft Update Catalog site.
I went there with Edge (I'm running Win 10) but it told me to use IE.  Once at the page, I keep getting told that "this web site wants to add the following add-on: "Microsoft Update Catalog" from "Microsoft Corporation." 
(Are there quotes because IE doesn't believe it's really Microsoft?  Or is it just being sarcastic?  Hard to tell sometimes. :-) )
Anyway, I always click "Install," but nothing happens.  F12 offers no help.  Any idea how a fully updated, licensed copy of Windows 10 Enterprise running the latest version of Internet Explorer (with no fancy security settings cranked
up) can't load an ActiveX control from Microsoft Corporation while trying to download updates from Microsoft's Update Catalog?
Thanks for any suggestions.

Hi, I would like to integrate all updates to install image. However, I must select all language of each updates on Windows Updates Catalog each by each. Any idea to download all updates with differance language as easier?

Hi,
I'm afraid that it is inevitable and you have to tick "Select all" for each update if you want to download all language of Updates. Why do you want to integrate all language updates into an image? if you need additional language user
interface, then you just need language pack added to your image.

I notice that some of the updates are for x86, some are for x64 and some are just Windows 7. If the architecture of the update is not specified then I am assuming that it is an update that should be applied for both architectures. Also my system happens to be x64 so I am not downloading any of the x86 updates. Would the x86 updates even apply to an x64 system or would that be problematic?

A:A question about the Microsoft Update Catalog x86, x64 and just 7?

Windows Update should only give you updates that you need.
Are the x86 updates for MS Office, and you have Office 32bit?
It might help if you post a screen print of the x86 updates you are not downloading/installing.

I was trying to download the latest driver for Realtek HD Audio and saw that the link to do so was a sticky so it must be a popular thing to do. I tried to download the driver in the catalog -- not sure why there are two that are described identically but are different sizes -- and it appeared it was gonna work until I clicked on view basket in order to download the selected driver. There I encounter an error each time I try.

I have used the Microsoft software update catalog before to manually apply updates. I'm pretty sure that I've never had any problem with any of the feature/functionality -- at least I don't remember ever having any. For some reason, while I can browse/search it and select updates to download resulting in the number shown in the catalog being updated,, whenever I click on view basket I get the error shown at the bottom of this post.

I'm running Win 10/IE 11 and have tried setting the site to "compatible" as well as enabling cookies and pop-ups explicitly for this site. Nothing has had any effect -- each time sameO sameO.

I've seen tons of posts with this same problem and most of the responses just seem to be shots in the dark -- some with the suggestions to do the above.

Is anybody familiar with this issue and what I need to do to resolve it?

How would this be possible?

If not, where can I leave feedback that filtering options for the search in Windows Update Catalog may get implemented?

Hello guys and Gals.... Got one that is a real brain twister, at least it is for me...

Please bare with me, a little history is appropriate.

On Sept 12, 2009 deleted the Dell partitions and reconfiguring the internal drive with a data partition. Moved My Docs folder to new Data partition (E:\). Updated Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware and Spybot S&D then ran scans with all three. Removed some adware cookies. Did a little more clean up and reconfiguring of stuff like Start/Programs menu and Bookmarks along with a few other minor things. Updated FF to v3.5.3. Installed AdBlocker Plus, Sourceforge Firefox Preloader and a couple of Windows Updates. Defragged both partitions, then created a new Full backup image with Acronis TI. Stored the image on my external USB HDD. Everything worked just great.

Then on Sept 20 (8 days later) I created an incremental image before trying out a utility called Sandboxie. Didn't work out, so I recovered to the incremental image.

My normal Windows Update routine goes like this. I have Windows Automatic Update turned OFF. I periodically check the Windows Update site to see if any new updates are out. If any new ones are released, I go to the Windows Catalog site, download the executable file, then install them, storing the executable files on my external HDD.

Now to the recently discovered problem and thank you for your patience.

The Microsoft Update Catalog is great for obtaining and manually installing Windows updates, but it requires the Internet Explorer browser be used because the site requires activeX.
If you're using another browser, such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, the site doesn't work.
Microsoft has decided to change that so the site can be accessed with all browsers.

I've a computer with Windows XP Pro, which is not connected to the internet. Now, I want to update it in order to be all up-to-date and secured again. So I don't mean by just downloading SP2, but by installing all security patches available ever since!
So I need to download everything first, burn it on CD, and then install the patches on my other computer. No problem. But the problem is: where can I download all those updates?! I've searched all over the net, and all I found was softwarepatch.com; it only contains english updates, and since I've a Dutch version of XP installed, those won't work. Simply changing the urls from xxx-ENU.exe to xxx-NLD.exe doesn't work either, different languages of the same patch seem to be hosted under a whole other url.
So I was wondering whether any of you guys have a list of links to Dutch Windows XP Professional updates, or an all-in-one package. Because other updates than the SP2 'Network installation' don't seem to be directly downloadable for the PC in the Dutch language, but using the windows-update page.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

I have been trying to troubleshoot a stop error, 0xA IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Which occurs frequently when trying to install windows.
I have been able to get past this several times (including tonight) by disabling most of the bios features until after install.

BTW, I have done a ton of other troubleshooting on this... I've swapped out every single piece of hardware in this computer.... (including the mobo, but it was an identical model)

One of the steps recomended by MS knowledgebase is to ensure that all hardware is on the Windows Catalog compatibility list. All of my hardware is on this list except my motherboard, whch is an Epox EP-8KRA2+. There are about 30 motherboards by Epox on this list... but not my exact model.

Does this windows catalog compatibility listing really matter that much? Is this just because they didn't pay M$ to approve this particular board? Is this likely a cause of my problem? Or should I continue my troubleshooting elsewhere?

Does anybody know for sure if this board is "windows compatible" or not?
thanks

Hello there. I am need of some real help and am really hoping that you can help me. I have a Dell Latitude D820, roughly 1 year old. While I was on the internet a few days ago, I inadvertently hit the ok box on a ?ActiveX update?. It was one of those boxes that no matter how many times I hit the cancel box, I couldn?t close the screen. In my continued efforts to close it, I accidentally accepted it. The next day, the sound on my computer as almost completely stopped working. The only sound it makes is a single beep tone when asking to save a file or minor items like that. If I try to open a music file in Windows Media Player, I get the error stating ?Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There might not be a sound device installed on your computer, it might be in use by another program, or it might not be functioning properly?. In the Device Manager under ?sound, video and game controllers?, it lists ?Audio Codecs, Legacy Audio Drivers, Legacy Video Capture Devices, Media Control Devices, Sigma Tel High Definition Audio CODEC, and Video Codecs?. In the properties for each, it shows all are working properly and Sigma Tel HD is enabled. Not thinking it was a potential virus, I called Dell thinking it was a software or driver problem.

Hi guys, I'm trying to create a Windows 7 image, make an answer file, and do an unattended installation. I put in the Windows 7 32 bit DVD, went to Sources, and copied Install.wim to my HDD. I then opened up the Windows System Image Manager and selected my Image, selected Home Premium, and it said it would create a catalog file. It worked on that for about a minute before giving me an error saying "Windows System Image Manager could not create a catalog file, for more assistance go to blahblahblahblahblah.microsoft.com". It created a log file which may or may not be useful which I have pasted below. I can't make any sense out of it but maybe someone else can I hope :/. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks ahead of time :).

Hello, I have to set up 4 windows 7 machines in our public library as card catalog computers. The card catalog is the only thing patrons need to have access to on these computers, as we have separate computers for them to access the internet. Once turned
on, we would like the computers to automatically pull up the catalog in full screen mode with no tabs, or bars visible. What is the best way to set these up like this? Thank you for your time!
