    error code 80070641

    Hi everyone

    First time posting to this forum, hope someone out there can help me.

    I've 12 important updates that I've tried installing but keeps failing and gives an error code 80070641.

    I've tried the Fix-it tool in windows with no luck, also ran sfc /scannow which informs me that I have corrupt files that it could not fix.

    I have also checked windows installer is set to automatic and is started.

    Any ideas folks???

    Welcome
    This may work
    Set your updater to advise but not install.
    Now install a few at a time.
    When you find the one that causes the problem, let us know, maybe it is not essential and you could avoid installing it. Be sure to boot if told so after each install.

    Hi richc64

    Thanks for your advice. I changed my updater to "check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them" and then tried one update at a time and they all failed giving the same error code for each one "80070641" below I've listed the updates in question, just in case that might help.
    Or maybe I didn't follow your advise correctly??? Not that computer I T savvy.
    Really grateful for your help and advice.

    Re: error code 80070641

    Sorry to hear that
    Post the CBS log as suggested by, Tom

    While we wait for his return, try these suggestions

    How do I reset Windows Update components?
    Description of the System Update Readiness Tool for Windows Vista, for Windows Server 2008, for Windows 7, and for Windows Server 2008 R2
    Cannot Update Windows using Windows Update

    Try these, one should get you working, again.

    Hi Bill,

    Yes, that's the one! Good job. Before we move on to a fix, I would like to double check these files with the results from the SFC scan. Can you please go to this tutorial:

    System Files - SFC Command

    Near the top of the page, you will see a yellow "Tip" box with two sets of instructions in it. Could you follow step 2 only please? This will generate a file, sfcdetails.txt, which I would like you to post the contents of for us to have a look at.

    Tom

    Re: error code 80070641

    Hi Richard

    Thanks again for your help and advice, I tried the first and second fixes you advised and rebooted after each one before attempting to update but unfortunately with the same result......failed.

    I only have a mobile dongle for internet access so downloading is very slowwwww and it got pretty late by the time I'd completed your first two suggestions. I will attempt the third fix shortly.

    But I'm going to respond to Tom's request first.

    Kind regards

    Re: error code 80070641

    Hi Tom

    Thanks for your advice but unfortunately I was unable to complete the task, I downloaded the 7-zip file and that's where things started to go wrong. It wasn't the same as the one in the screenshot....instead of a Compatibility tab my one had a Share tab. So I looked at how to change this and was taken into the registry, I followed the steps and the very last one again on mine wasn't the same as the screenshot so I backed out before I made matters worse!! The instructions were to make changes in the registry, something I know nothing about, especially when the (layers) file wasn't there. Sorry

    Is there any other way to get the info you require?

    Kind regards
