Windows update error 80070246
Hi folks,

I seem to be getting this fairly rare and as-yet undiagnosed error while
trying to update Vista Home Premium. The update in question is "Cumulative
Security Update for Internet Explorer 7 in Windows Vista (KB942615)", and
has been unable to install for some time now.

Each attempt also results in this error in my event logs:

Windows Servicing failed to complete the process of setting package KB942615
(Security Update) into Default(Default) state

I have attached the details of this error.

I am also having a possibly related issue when I try to enable "Tablet PC
Optional Components", namely that the install fails. I haven't tried any
other optional components at this time, FWIW. In this case, though, the
failure is silent in the user interface. My reason for suspecting that the
failure is related is due to similar errors appearing in my event log. These
"Servicing" errors seem to occur for many (or possibly all) installed
updates and windows components each time I try to enable Tablet PC Optional
Components. I count rougly 197 "servicing" errors added to the event log per
"Windows Feature" attempt.

I would be happy to enumerate the servicing errors that occur when enabling
Tablet PC Optional Components in more detail if it is necessary, though
perhaps there would be a better venue for such an issue if it is unrelated
to WU.

I would appreciate any assistance or additional troubleshooting suggestions,
or even a suggestion as to a better forum to raise this topic.

Attached is the relevant WindowsUpdate.log section mentioning this error for
my attempts to install KB942615. There is also mention of this error in
C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log, which I noticed being mentioned as another
place to look for WU logs relating to mysterious errors elsewhere on the
internets. I have attached a single relevant "session" that displays this
error. There are more mentions in CBS.log, but they are verbose and very
similar to the one I have attached. Please let me know if these additional
errors in CBS.log would be useful.

I also saw somewhere (possibly in an archive of one of these groups) that
there are some XML files in C:\Windows\winsxs that might be useful -- let me
know which ones and I will dig them up.

Regards,
Sam

Does Vista show a valid message for: net helpmsg 582

I'm not sure why this article is calling that a "STOP Error"?

<title>Stop error when you try to download updates from Windows Update on

It doesn't look exactly like your case but perhaps it will give you some more
ideas. Otherwise what I would do is run ProcMon while as much verbose
logging was going on as possible for the update. E.g. then you can see the
writes of each log record and how they correlate with other registry and file
accesses being made by the update.



To give this more visibility to other Vista users (e.g. for comparing logs)
I am cross-posting this to Vista Perf & Maint.


Good luck

Yep (the same general description as was displayed in some of the logs):
C:\Users\Sam Schinke>net helpmsg 582

An illegal character was encountered. For a multi-byte character set this
includ
es a lead byte without a succeeding trail byte. For the Unicode character
set th
is includes the characters 0xFFFF and 0xFFFE.

I'm puzzled that that wouldn't have shown up in any of my searches. I guess
I was searching without the "0x" prefix. Is there someone over at the
microsoft search side of things that ought to be made aware of misses of
this sort, or would such a tight matching requirement be intentional to
avoid false-positives?

Anyways, good searching. I'll work through the steps there and report back.

It looks fairly similar -- the impression I get, anyways, is of some XML
being corrupted. I think I had read that post (or a syndication of same),
which is what resulted in my suggesting some files in winsxs.

That sounds like a plan. I had tried filemon, not being quite up-to-date
about various sysinternals tool changes, and had poor results. A quick run
at ProcMon already shows better results, so I'll run with that if the KB
article doesn't get me up and running. I'm hoping I will be able to apply
the instructions in the above KB article to other corrupted winsxs XML files
if necessary.

Would it be worth enabling extended logging while I'm at it, or are we
beyond anything that would show in WindowsUpdate.log?

Fair enough.

Cheers.

Ok, this and ProcessExplorer have moved me past that particular error.

It turned out one of the .manifest files in C:\Windows\winsxs\Manifests was
corrupted. Given the repetitive nature of these files, it was fairly easy to
re-write the corrupted section (assuming it didn't also involve dropping
large pieces of the file). It may also have been possible to restore the
file using the method listed in the KB article.

So now I am getting the following error: 80073712

I'm out of time and energy to work on this tonight, so this is just a status
update. I'll assemble appropriate logs and do some more research another
time.

Preliminary search results:

This KB article didn't turn out to be applicable.

The error is 0x80073712, which translates to HResult 14098 -- The component
store has been corrupted.

I will see if ProcMon can lead me to a culprit again in this case. Who
knows, maybe I'll get a different error number again.

Further steps tried based on earlier posts in this group reporting this
error code:

Checked for C:\Windows\winsxs\pending.xml
The file did not exist.

Attempted to re-install WindowsUpdateAgent from
http://download.windowsupdate.com/v7...gent30-x86.exe
The install failed, even with the /wuforce parameter (which the installer
doesn't claim to support).

Ran sfc /scannow
Results in "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable
to fix some of them." CBS.log shows 16 files in winsxs that were corrupt and
unable to be repaired.

Using the steps from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/942968 I am going to
try to restore those files manually.

I've replaced a few files, but have hit a wall with the same manifest that
was corrupt earlier. There are multiple versions of it, and sfc's logging in
CBS.log just indicates that the manifest is corrupt with no indication
_which_ manifest is corrupt. There is only one accessible via the AIK, and
it did not solve the problem.

So I'm off to perform an in-place upgrade I guess.

Regards,
Sam

That could be a good example of where ProcMon can allow you to infer
a complete path for a file a log refers to. E.g. find the message in the log,
see if there is a timestamp associated with it, find its length, look in ProcMon
for a WRITE to the log which most closely matches those attributes,
look for trace records before that WRITE which is probably associated with
that message. Usually you can then infer a complete path for a referenced
file.

Indeed. It didn't matter which file it was in my case -- I had no "known
good" copy of two versions, and the good copy I did have (on the Install
DVD) didn't solve the problem.

Also of interest, I found the following article, which is applicable in
cases where sfc /scannow finds problems in %windir%\winsxs but is unable to
repair them:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833

I found the instructions there much more helpful (and specific) as to
permissions issues than http://support.microsoft.com/kb/942968/en-us

Combining the two gives repeatable instructions for restoring individual
files from the installation media.

IMO, the above two articles (and possibly
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931712) could use some cross-linking.

Does anyone have a technique for extracting "known good" winsxs content (if
any) from .msu files? I think if this had occured to me, I might have been
able to repair my initial WU problems without resorting to an in-place
upgrade.

Doing a quick search, according to
http://bink.nu/news/archive/2007/04.aspx?PageIndex=11, "extract -F:*
<filename> <destination>" will extract content from .msu files, and a
repetition will extract the content from the .cab files inside the .msu.
Testing this on the .msu for KBKB938194 I find plenty of .manifest, .cat,
and .mum files. So I guess my one remaining question would be how to tell
which update provided any additional (unrestorable, according to sfc) winsxs
information/modifications.

A tool to automate this, potentially as part of sfc.exe would be a great
boost to Vista's long-term stability.

FWIW, though, I can't personally blame Vista for the troubles in my case --
I appear to be having some reliability issues with an on-board RAID5
controller. I wouldn't expect these files to be at significant risk of
corruption in normal circumstances.

Regards,
Sam

Or at least both could mention the Event log as another source of clues? ; )

I was wondering that when reading the first article and then pleased to find
that speculation confirmed by the second one (at least for that other code)...

And I did a "quick search" which found this advice (after describing
how an attempt at using such an automated tool had failed):

http://cc.msnscache.com/cache.aspx?q...71&FORM=CVRE15

(Live Search for
winsxs extract site:blogs.msdn.com
- cached copy
- I was actually thinking that something more specific would pop up
from Aaron Stebner's Weblog but I didn't find it with a superficial look
)
