    [Win7Pro x86] trying to install SP1 - error STATUS_SXS_ASSEMBLY_MISSING

    Hello,
    I've read some similiar threads on the forum but found no solution.
    I've run System Update Readiness Tool (2014), sfc.exe, SFCFix.exe (results are OK - attached logs).

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    There are some archive versions of setupapi.dev.log in c:\windows\inf.
    I'll attach them if needed.

    Re: [Win7 Prof. 32bit] installing SP1 - error STATUS_SXS_ASSEMBLY_MISSING

    Thanks. I need to see your components hive now. Please do the following.

    Retrieve Components Hive
    1. Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\Config and locate the COMPONENTS file.
    2. Please copy this file to your desktop.
    Note: If you receive an error that this file is in-use, simply reboot your computer and try again.
    3. Right-click on this file on your desktop and select Send To...Compressed (zipped) folder. This will create a file named COMPONENTS.ZIP on your desktop.
    4. The file will likely be too large to upload here so please upload to SendSpace and just provide the link here.

    Re: [Win7Pro x86] trying to install SP1 - error STATUS_SXS_ASSEMBLY_MISSING

    Thanks. Please start with the following.

    Step#1 - Run Windows Repairs
    Warning: this fix is specific to the user in this thread. No one else should follow these instructions as it may cause more harm than good. If you are after assistance, please start a thread of your own.
    1. Download Windows Repair (All-in-One) Portable to your desktop.
    2. Once the file is downloaded, right-click on the file on your desktop and choose Extract All...

    3. Keep the defaults and click the Extract button.
    4. A folder named tweaking.com_windows_repair_aio will be extracted to the desktop. Once the extraction is complete the folder will open.
    5. Inside this folder, there is a folder named Tweaking.com - Windows Repair. Open this folder as well.



    6. Double-click on Repair_Windows.exe to open. Note: Please make sure all of your programs are closed and anything you were working on is saved as we will be rebooting.
    7. When the program opens, click the Reboot to Safe Mode button at the bottom of the screen. Answer Yes to allow.
    8. Once rebooted into Safe Mode, open the program again. When the program opens, click the Repairs tab and click the Open Repairs button.
    9. A backup of your registry will be made. After a few moments you will have many options from which you can choose.
    10. Please click the Unselect All button and then click to enable only the following ones:


    05 - Repair WMI
    14 - Remove Temp Files
    15 - Repair Proxy Settings
    17 - Repair Windows Updates
    21 - Repair MSI (Windows Installer)



    11. Ensure the Restart check box is selected and click the Start Repairs button in the lower right of the screen. This may take some time to run so be patient.

    12. Once the fixes are complete you will be prompted to restart your machine. Answer Yes.

    Thanks. All mentioned scripts have been run, but SP1 fails with the same error (attached cbs.log).

    Re: [Win7Pro x86] trying to install SP1 - error STATUS_SXS_ASSEMBLY_MISSING

    Please do the following.

    Step#1 - FRST Fix
    NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on that particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system
    1. Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.
    Note: You need to run the 32-bit Version so please ensure you download that one.
    2. Download attached file and save it to the Desktop.
    Note. It's important that both files, FRST and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work (in this case...the desktop).
    3. Run FRST by Right-Clicking on the file and choosing Run as administrator.
    4. Press the Fix button just once and wait. If for some reason the tool needs a restart, please make sure you let the system restart normally. After that let the tool complete its run.
    5. When finished FRST will generate a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Please post the contents of it in your reply.

    Re: [Win7Pro x86] trying to install SP1 - error STATUS_SXS_ASSEMBLY_MISSING

    Thanks. I need to take a look at your Software Hive.

    Step#1 - Retrieve Software Hive
    Note: The Software have has confidential and sensitive information in it so please send me a PM with a link to the hive so it's not in the public form.
    • Please download the Freeware RegBak from here: Acelogix Software - Download products
      You will find it at the bottom of the page that the link brings you to.
    • Go ahead and install this program and accept all the defaults. After the last install screen the program should open.
    • Click the New Backup button. Accept the defaults and simply click Start.
    • When it says Finished successfully, click the Close button.
    • This will bring you back to the main screen of the program. You will see one entry in this list with the date that you did it. Right-click on this line-item and select Explore Backup...
    • This will bring you into the folder where the backup was made. You should see a Users folder and a Windows folder along with a couple other files. Double-click on the Windows folder to open it. Then open the System32 folder and then config folder. You should see around 6 files in here, one of which is named SOFTWARE.
    • Copy this file to your Desktop.
    • Now right click on this file on your desktop and select Send to > Compressed (zipped) folder.
    • Then please upload the zip file(s) to your favourite file sharing website (it will be too big to upload here). Examples of services to upload to are Dropbox or One Drive or SendSpace and then just PM me your link.
    • You can close any open windows you have as well as the RegBak program now.
