RE: KB898461 consistently fails to install
Hi All,

I don't know if your problem was solved but I didn't see anybody indicating
and hence am posting the solution here. I don't know why Microsoft doesn't
post such an easy solution and I really hope the guy who had to reinstall
would not have to do it.

Anyways, the problem is with some dlls which are not properly reigstered in
the registry.

Anyways, here is the fix. Hope this helps you all who has the problem and
you just don’t have to reinstall XP to fix some registry errors. The solution
works 100%.

**********************************************

To fix the .dll issue, you will need to re-register a couple of .dll files.
To do this, follow these easy steps:

Run the command prompt by clicking on the Start Menu and selecting Run. Type
"cmd" and hit Enter.

In the new window that came up, type each of the following commands, hitting
enter after each one:

REGSVR32 WUAPI.DLL
REGSVR32 WUAUENG1.DLL
REGSVR32 ATL.DLL
REGSVR32 WUPS2.DLL
REGSVR32 WUCLTUI.DLL
REGSVR32 WUPS.DLL
REGSVR32 WUWEB.DLL
REGSVR32 WUAUENG.DLL

Windows update should now behave normally.

**********************************************

RE: KB898461 consistently fails to install
Thank you for providing an EASY fix! It is nice to have someone to explain
things in a way in a way anyone can understand. Wish Microsoft would have
provided this easy answer.

RE: KB898461 consistently fails to install
Wolverine's simple and safe DLL solution worked perfectly for me. Neither
Lenovo nor IBM tech support could help me with this vexing problem, and I was
resigned to installing the updates manually. Kudos to W !!
