    [Server2008SP2 x86] Error 0x80073712 component store is corrupt

    Hi,
    after an update (which I think has deleted some files) I can not add services and roles with server manager that returns the error in the topic.

    I have tried many solutions (I attach logs) that have not solved the problem.

    How can I resolve without reinstalling the operating system?

    OK, please do the following so I can gather more info.

    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.

    unfortunately, the file is not copied... it is always open by another program

    No worries. Please do the following.

    Retrieve Components Hive

    • 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.
    • 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 Dropbox 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 RegBack program now.

    That was helpful. Please do the following.

    Step#1 - SFCFix Script
    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.

    2. Download the file below, SFCFix.zip, and save this to your Desktop. Ensure that this file is named SFCFix.zip - do not rename it.
    3. Save any open documents and close all open windows.
    4. On your Desktop, you should see two files: SFCFix.exe and SFCFix.zip.
    5. Drag the file SFCFix.zip onto the file SFCFix.exe and release it.
    6. SFCFix will now process the script.
    7. Upon completion, a file should be created on your Desktop: SFCFix.txt.
    8. Copy (Ctrl+C) and Paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of this file into your next post for me to analyse please

    2. When it asks you if you wish to install, please answer yes. Note: It could take 15 minutes or more to run. Please don't cancel.
    3. You will get an Installation Complete screen when it's done running.
    4. Please attach the log from the following location. C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.log
