0x8007043B and Automatic Updates Error 1083: The executable program that this service is configured

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by Christopher Pankhurst, Mar 11, 2006.

  1. Hi,
    I cannot use windows update. I have narrowed it down to the fact that
    Automatic Updates service does not want to start. It gives the error: "Error
    1083: The executable program that this service is configured to run in does
    not implement the service.". I have done a bit of googling, and found a few
    suggestions, none of which have worked for my XP SP2 computer.

    first I reinstalled SP2
    then

    C:\Documents and Settings\chris>Regsvr32 %windir%\system32\qmgr.dll

    C:\Documents and Settings\chris>regsvr32 %windir%\system32\qmgrprxy.dll

    C:\Documents and Settings\chris>regsvr32 wuaueng.dll

    I have also done a cursory comparison the registry against a different XP
    SP2 computer which has no problem and could not find a different so far as
    "Automatic Updates" was concerned.

    I have also checked that key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows
    NT\Current Version\SvcHost, value netsvcs includes BITS and wuauserv - it
    does.

    Could somebody please help me out here?

    Thanks,
    Chris Pankhurst

  2. Have you run Services.msc and looked closely at the services?

    Start button > select RUN> type in SERVICES.MSC

    The following services are needed by the processes at Windows Update. In services management console ( services.msc) they must NOT be *Disabled* in the Startup type.
    They need to show a startup type of Manual or Automatic.
    Here are the services & their Startup types:

    Background Intelligent Transfer Service(BITS) Manual
    Cryptographic Services Automatic
    Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Automatic
    System Restore Service Automatic

    Now then, look at the entry for Automatic Updates. Does it shows Started in the Status column? If not, click on "Start" the service link.

  3. Thanks for the attempt but that was not the problem. The other services you
    mentioned were already started. In my attempts earlier I tried to start
    Automatic updates directly. If it had been disabled then I would have
    noticed it at that time.

  4. When searching for available updates on the Update site, you see the 0x8007043B error
    http://update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/showarticle.aspx?articleid=19&ln=en&IsMu=False

    or


    "Checking for updates, depending on your speed this process may take several minutes"
    Try registering the following:

    Click Start, select Run and type (pressing enter after each one and wait for the success message):

    net.exe stop wuauserv
    Press Ok

    Repeat for the following:
    regsvr32 wuapi.dll
    regsvr32 wups.dll
    regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
    regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll
    regsvr32 wuweb.dll
    regsvr32 jscript.dll
    regsvr32 wucltui.dll
    regsvr32 msxml3.dll
    regsvr32 softpub.dll
    regsvr32 atl.dll

    net.exe start wuauserv

    I have done all that CHristopher has done, except in my registry - value
    netsvcs does NOT include BITS and wuauserv - they are NOT in there, and I
    cannot add them because there is no "value data" option to add.

    Where or how do I add them?
