    Server 2008R2 fails to update any Cumulative Monthly Updates

    Hi there! I believe I have the exact same problem as this previous thread:


    Problems applying 2018-05 on Server 2008 R2 SP1



    I see the file link that was posted in that thread in question is still live, but I'm brand new here and a little worried about deploying this on my production server " no questions asked ".


    Could you perhaps show me how to find the necessary missing component(s) and show me how to create my own valid update .cab ? ( after, of course, verifying my sanity ).

    I have plenty of healthy neighboring 2008R2 servers to pull it from.


    The relevant error from my CBS.LOG follows:

    Thank you! This server hasn't been able to install any of the cumulative updates going back for many months now, and I've tried the usual technet update fixes.


    My wild guess is that whatever package is supposed to contain this missing exe fails to get cleaned out / reindexed / and re-downloaded by the usual fixes, making me suspect there's another index file that the mainstream fixed don't mention or perhaps it's been merged into winsxs and the OS simply trusts it to be correct ( even if it clearly isn't ).


    Anyway, thank you in advance for any assistance! Even good links.


    PJ

    p.s. I understand you guys may prefer to follow process and have me submit the usual results of SFC, etc. Please let me know if that's a must.

    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 a file sharing service and just provide the link here.
