    Question [7SP1 x64] KB4041681 fails to install

    Hi all

    I'm experiencing difficulties with applying one Windows 7 update. I think it's related to the same solved issue I was experiencing in this thread ([Win7SP1 x64] Can't install Security monthly Quality Rollup KB4034664 - 80073712) as it's another security update issue.

    So, diagnostic results gathered so far;
    Code:
    SFCFix version 3.0.0.0 by niemiro.
    Start time: 2017-10-31 09:28:30.522
    Microsoft Windows 7 Service Pack 1 - amd64
    Not using a script file.
    
    
    AutoAnalysis::
    SUMMARY: No corruptions were detected.
    AutoAnalysis:: directive completed successfully.
    
    
    Successfully processed all directives.
    SFCFix version 3.0.0.0 by niemiro has completed.
    Currently storing 6 datablocks.
    Finish time: 2017-10-31 09:30:21.039
    ----------------------EOF-----------------------
    Once again, any help will be very much appreciated!

    Re: Win7 SP1 x64 - KB4041681 fails to install

    Hello and welcome,

    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. Note: If you find that you need to reboot and are unable to because this is a server then try Option#2 below.
    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.



    Option#2 (only if you are unable to follow the previous instructions)


    • 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 COMPONENTS.
    • Copy the COMPONENTS file to your Desktop. If the COMPONENTS file does not exist, please fetch it instead from C:\Windows\System32\config\COMPONENTS.
    • Now right-click on the COMPONENTS file that is on your desktop and select Send to > Compressed (zipped) folder.
    • Then please upload the zip file (COMPONENTS.zip) to your favourite file sharing website (it will be too big to upload here). Examples of services to upload to are Filedropper or One Drive or SendSpace and then just provide the link in your reply.
    • You can close any open windows you have as well as the RegBak program now.

    Hi Peter

    Thanks for replying!

    I've not used Sendspace before but I've uploaded and the link should be: Download COMPONENTS.zip from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way

    Check Windows Update again and report the result.
    If it fails, run sfc /scannow again and attach the zipped cbs.log to your next reply.

    Re: Win7 SP1 x64 - KB4041681 fails to install

    Follow the instructions below to run a scan with the System Update Readiness Tool (SURT) and provide a log.

    1. Download SURT for your system. (Windows 7 SP1 x64)
    2. Once downloaded, execute the installer, and go through the installation (this process can take around 15-20 minutes).
    3. On completion, a log will be created in C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.log.
    4. Attach this log in your next reply.


    Alternatively, if these instructions are unclear for you, you can follow the tutorial below.

    Restart the machine.
    Run Windows Update again.
    Take a screenshot of the error message you get. Read this on how to take a screenshot.
    Upload the image file to a file-sharing site and post the download link.

    Click on the Start button and in the search box, type Command Prompt
    When you see Command Prompt on the list, right-click on it and select Run as administrator.
    When command prompt opens, copy and paste the following command into it, and press enter.

    Code:
    copy %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log "%userprofile%\Desktop\cbs.txt"
    [*]This will create a file, cbs.txt on your Desktop. Please attach this to your next post.
