Windows xp updates fail to install
Hi,
I recently reformatted my computer and reinstall windows xp sp2 with the
original CD. None of the updates can be installed now. I dont get any error
messages or error code. On the Automatic updates window, it get the following
message: "Some updates could not be installed", and then "The following
updates were not installed:" but it is actually a list of all the updates.
Can you please tell me what's happening and how to resolve it?

Thanks

MS Update should take care of registering Wups2.dll if necessary, not annoy user with KB943144
What is the purpose of MU if it is unable, in 2007, to take care of this without disturbing the user? Should the user continue to pay for MS "products"? or should MS start paying the ones (the users) who are doing its work?

In addition:

- the correct link for the KB is "http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144", which will automatically get the KB in the user's language if he has so chosen (and get it in EN-US anyway if he hasn't)
- the KB943144 itself is sloppily written - one more proof that all this is recklessly (or not at all) "handled".

After my sig is what I just submitted on the KB943144 page.

Subject: MS updates fail to install after XP Repair

1) In Method 2 §3, one double-quote and one space are missing:
C:\WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe"/wuforce
2) No way is provided to check if Wups2.dll is already registered thus if I need to register it or not.
3) MU (http://update.microsoft.com) should take care of this without costing one single second or brain cell from the user. This whole KB item is a proff that MS completely scorns its users.

What's the purpose of a repair installation?

Blah, and it will redirect a user to an "automatically translated" article,
if the article isn't manually translated for the user's language. Those
"automatic translated" articles are more than once misunderstanding and by
translation any word, erronous. That's why I prefer the english version.
Those not capable of reading and understand any word in English are able
to swith the language of the MSKB article manually.

> - the KB943144 itself is sloppily written - one more proof that all this is recklessly (or not at all) "handled".


You've given MS feedback on that? Fine. Otherwise please stop complaining
here since it's pretty useless.

BTW: What did you ment to say?

Making life easier vs harder to MS customers
1) « What's the purpose of a repair installation? »

MU and Repair are both tools intended to make life easier, more comfortable, friendly - in short: more efficient. MS MVPs (and fans) should as well be something else than hurdles trying all the day to make life harder and more unpleasant - e.g. by implying that the existence of Repair would tend, while hyping MU as working, to at the same time prevent it from actually working.

2) « Blah,... »
Selecting to show that sort (and level) of education would stop anyone reasonable from reading you any further. Lucky you that I am not as reasonable.

3) « Those "automatic translated" articles are more than once... That's why I prefer the english version »
In facts most articles are correctly translated (in FR at least). Anyway the issue is not *your* opinions or findings (or lack of) or preferences but the ones *of Microsoft customers and visitors*. Polite and efficient behavior leads to ease their choices, without weighting in one side or another, while taking in account the situation and resources (e.g. the automatic switching language is a given).

4) I regret the time (a decade ago IIRC) when these MS public NGs were open, polite, friendly - hence much more efficient. I am surely not the only to have (mostly) left them years back now.

You're sure you've understand what a *repair installation* is?

Pardon? You've missed the context, that's why you missed the sense.

LOL, sure about, that you don't reflect your problems and attitudes
on others, are you?

Nope, and no, the world doesn't exist in French and English only.
But you're nitpicking only anyway, aren't you?

I agree. So why don't you just stop posting, learn posting and quoting
and let "the rest" of us trying to help other users instead of nitpicking
and trying to receive attention for your ego only?

Friendliness would make discussing possible
{When willing to post I discover that Ottmar Freudenberger made his post so that replies are lost in "microsoft.public.test" (any reasons to fear replies?); whence my posting as a reply to myself. Due to extended experience I know that this is politically organised hence will most probably get backed and further worsened by the hordes from Microsoft or elsewhere, e.g. by removing or moving my post(s) or falsifying the thread in any other way - as has already been done in the past. I post anyway... Too bad there is such amount of hostility, dishonesty, negativity; life could be so pleasant otherwise!}

--ooOOoo--

« You're sure you've understand what a *repair installation* is? »

It seems yourself don't understand it as well as the average people. Trying to show others' stupidity too often ends in demonstrating your own (popular wisdom). Please anyone reread me *as written* and *in context*.

« let "the rest" of us trying to help other users instead of nitpicking and trying to receive attention for your ego only »

Swapping roles that utterly isn't even funny.

All the rest of your post is full with hostility and lying instead of friendliness and good faith, backed with the same tricks (Swapping roles, defending the indefensible including the stupidest and biggest faults in MS galaxy, faking to understand others backwards, or to take them for idiots, etc) - thus essentially adding proofs to my conclusion (§4). When someone is that bad entrenched in hostile lies instead of friendly help, there is unfortunately no use in discussing any further - whatever other tricks he (or his friends) will most probably endlessly add hereafter (believing the numerous precedents).

LOL, know what "F'up2" is? Know what that means?

Do you *know* what a repair installation is? Can *YOU* read in context?

Listen, my love, your postings are *NOT* useful to anybody but yourself.
My love, this newsgroup is *NOT* established for netpicking and satisfying
the alter ego of a poster. Not mine, not yours. This is *NOT*
microsoft.public.merlin.whining nor microsoft.public.merlin.4e4 nor
microsoft.public.merlin.rules.the.world.even.he.is .no.mvp.but.wants.to.be.one
nor microsoft.public.merlin.teaches.the.world

So please do me and a lot of others a favour, and die. IOW: *PLONK*.

HTH & TIA,
Freu"F'up2"di

P.S. Your continues posting of questionable content in the past ("Compact
not usefull" and nonsens like that back last year in the OE newsgroup)
reflects what *YOU* understand under an "efficient" newsgroup. That's
*NOT* what anyone needs. Accept that please.

Readers, Refer to ORIGINALS - yet Beware falsified threads
Readers, don't be impressed with all these stupidities and calumniating insinuations (that will probably continue, under same name or not), please Refer to ORIGINALS instead - yet Beware falsified threads (that did happen in the past, with tacit or active but very clever and trained participation of MVPs).
