W2K Downloads updates but the update Installation not installed/Fa
I lost a hard drive with the OS on it, so I had to reinstall W2K Pro. I
installed the SP4 Pack before running update to save time.

When I run Update, it recognizes the updates, downloads them but then
reports the installation failed without any error message.

I was able to identify several updates that were needed like installer 3.1.
I was able to locate it on the Microsoft site, download and install it
manually. But then when I run Update again, it moves to the next Update,
downloads it and the install fails.

Can anyone help with a fix?

I am using v6 of the Update Program.

Thanks
Dave

Try registering wups2.dll from a Command Prompt, Dave.
Start > Run > type in

cmd.exe
Click OK or press Enter

At the prompt, type in these commands pressing Enter after each one

net stop wuauserv
regsvr32 wups2.dll
exit

Restart the system and see if the updates install now.

Thanks for the response. Other things were not working quite right, so I
reinstalled windows 2000.

All is well

Re: W2K Downloads updates but the update Installation not installe
You're welcome, Dave. Did you install SP4 again prior to attempting to
update ?

Re: W2K Downloads updates but the update Installation not installe
Yes I did install SP4 before running an update.. I did not install the Roll
up in the second install until I was sure the Update would work.

During the first install of 2000, I did SP4 then the Rollup then I tried the
update and it failed. I am assuming that I had a corrupted install the first
time.

There was no antivirus software monitoring the system either time ?
BTW, thanks for sticking with this thread, Dave.

Re: W2K Downloads updates but the update Installation not installe
There was no other software loaded in both cases. I ran fdisk, formatted the
drive and ran w2k winnt.exe from the i386 folder.

Anytime I can help someone else it's a good thing :-)

Re: W2K Downloads updates but the update Installation not installe
Thanks for the info, Dave. Let's *hope* that anyone who does a clean
reinstallation of Win2K sees this and avoids the same issue by
installing SP4, then the updates, and then the Rollup.

Have a Hoppy Hallidaze <w>
