Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

Your Windows XP install problem

Did you ever get this issue resolved with Microsoft. I've done this since I'm in MS Tech Net and its pretty easy, especially if you have a good copy on hand.

I suspect that you have reformated and installed from there.

Just wanted you to konw FixYa is not represented by so called experts like the one you had to deal with.

Sorry you had such a horrible experience.

Thanks for using FixYa anyway. You can contact me in reply to this if you so choose. We'd like to follow up on your experience.

Regards,
Worldvet

Microsoft updates do not install


You have not said which OS you are using so; from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144

When you try to install Windows updates from the Windows Update Web site, the Microsoft Update Web site, or by using Automatic Update, you receive a message that the update is not installed successfully. Additionally, the update is not displayed in the update history.

You may experience this issue in the following scenarios:

Scenario 1 You try to install updates after repair a Windows XP installation by using the Windows XP CD.
Scenario 2 You perform the following operations before you try to install Windows updates:

You perform a new installation of Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2).
You visit the Windows Update Web site, or the Microsoft Update Web site.
Note When you visit the update Web site, the latest version of Windows Update software will be installed in your computer.
You install Windows XP Service Pack (SP3) without a restart.
You try to install Windows updates after the install of Windows XP SP3.

Then cause ;

This issue occurs because the Wups2.dll file that is included in the latest version of Windows Update is not installed correctly.

For scenario 1, the registry entries that correspond to the Wups2.dll file are missing after the repair install of Windows XP. The release version of Windows XP does not contain the Windows Update software.

For scenario 2, the registry entries that correspond to Windows Update are changed back to the Windows XP SP2 version if you did not restart the computer before you install Windows XP SP3. The registry entries for the Wups2.dll file are changed to pointing to the Wups.dll file that is included in the release version of Windows XP SP2.
To resolve this problem, use one of the following methods;

Method 1: Download and install the Windows Update Agent,
For an x86-based computer; http://download.windowsupdate.com/WindowsUpdate/redist/standalone/7.4.7600.226/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe

For an x64-based computer http://download.windowsupdate.com/WindowsUpdate/redist/standalone/7.4.7600.226/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x64.exe

Method 2: Register the Wups2.dll file,

To have MS register the Wups2.dll file in Windows for you, go to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144#FixItForMeAlways.

If you prefer to fix this problem yourself,

To register the Wups2.dll file in Windows, follow these steps:

1. Stop the Automatic Updates service. To do this, follow these steps:
a. Open the Command Prompt window. To do this, click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
b. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
net stop wuauserv

2. Register the Wups2.dll file. To do this, follow these steps:

a. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
regsvr32 %windir%\system32\wups2.dll

Note For a computer that is running Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
regsvr32 %windir%\syswow64\wups2.dll

b. Click OK if you receive a verification message.

3. Start the Automatic Updates service. To do this, type the following command at the command prompt, and then press ENTER:
net start wuauserv

4. Exit the Command Prompt window. To do this, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

Windows installer is looking for the un.msi file in a windows folder that does not exist. Windows update keeps failing because it can not find this fill. So it keeps trying to install some update software...


Usually the installer files are found in your i386 folder, either in the c: drive or in the disk itself.
It is probably looking for an office msi file. Do you have Microsoft Office by chance? If so then try that disk and see where you get. Do you know what windows update is causing this problem? If you could note which update it was this may help you solve your problem quicker.
Hope this helps you.

I have .Net 1.1 framework and 2.0 .Net framework installed on my windows xp and now I caanot install .net framework 3.5


I remember wrestling with that myself a while back. Please see this post, and these links. this MS article, and the windows installer cleanup utility here.
Seems to me that with all the service packs and updates and so forth, somehow the installation got corrupted. I had to uninstall the lot and slowly, painstakingly rebuild from the ground up, downloading the installer for a .net version, installing, rebooting , then the service pack for that version, reboot, then the next, etc. in order until I built it back up. Turn off automatic updates while you do it. (Or you can try uninstalling it all and then going to windows update for the downloads, but install them one at a time and reboot before proceeding further. It finally worked. It was a pain. My heart goes out to you...
Good luck.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!
