Re: WinXP SP2 Repaired, Windows Update Sees updates, fails to inst
I had the same problem : the destruction of destruction of the
SoftwareDistribution directory did not solve it. But the execution of your
registration batch did it alone. Very good shot !!!

Open a Command Prompt, at the prompt type in the following, pressing
Enter after each command

net stop wuauserv
regsvr32 wups2.dll
net start wuauserv
exit

No need to register *ALL* those files:

Re: fix "updates fail" "update failure" after hd reformat replacement
The dll "did the trick", D. Pavot. Thanks, as I have no idea how to create a
batch file, but can follow directions on entering commands a the "C:" prompt.

Re: WinXP SP2 Repaired, Windows Update Sees updates, fails to inst
I did a google search after Windows Update failed and ended up here. The
three lines below got me going again. Windows Update has been stuck for the
last two months until I found this.

THANKS!

Re: WinXP SP2 Repaired, Windows Update Sees updates, fails to inst
Thanks MowGreen, your suggestion of the 3 command line commands was exactly
what my machine required. May I ask what this command is actually doing in
regards to the dll file?

Thanks again!

Re: WinXP SP2 Repaired, Windows Update Sees updates, fails to inst
The command registers the .dll. Seems there's an old reference in the
registry that is retained through a Repair installation and registering
it points to the proper file [CLSID] and path.

Re: WinXP SP2 Repaired, Windows Update Sees updates, fails to inst
These 4 lines worked for me too, thanks !
net stop wuauserv
regsvr32 wups2.dll
net start wuauserv
exit

In my case, astonishingly, I'd only freshly installed Windows (probably SP1
or earlier), installed SP2 from a disk, and run Windows Update to get XP SP3
and high priority updates ! No other software was ever installed on this PC !
I got the error "Some updates were not installed" and "The following updates
were not installed" (all the high priority updates were listed underneath).

For the record, here's what steps led me to the problem:
Installed Win XP (probably SP1 or earlier)
Set up a couple of users
Installed XP Service Pack 2 from a cover disk on a magazine (not knowing SP3
existed)
Ran Windows Update, which downloaded and installed XP Service Pack 3
Ran Windows Update, which downloaded but failed to install any of the 34
high priority updates.
After this stage, shutting down using "Install updates and turn off" led to
the computer switching off before update 1 of 34 had completed.
Repeated use of "Microsoft Update" gave the same problems.
Saw this thread, typed the following four lines at the command prompt:
net stop wuauserv
regsvr32 wups2.dll
net start wuauserv
exit
Ran Microsoft Update, and every thing was fine again ! Thanks :-)
