Error number 80073712

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by naraku4656, Jul 11, 2007.

  1. Alright well I have an issue as well. I have tried various other solutions
    and when I try this and search for C:\windows\winsxs\pending.xml it says the
    file is not found. I tried to perform the other steps to no results. I also
    used the windows error-checking option and this didn't help either. Basically
    I can't find a solution to this problem. I would perform a system restore
    however the date that this started happening is too far back so a system
    restore would do nothing. Am I basically Doomed?

  3. <repost date="2007-05-28">

    So, you tried a search something like this to find that tip?

    (0x80073712 OR 80073712 OR 14098) site:microsoft.com


    If guessing doesn't work perhaps it's time to try some diagnosis? <eg>

    Try installing it manually with verbose mode logging?

    What is the context of the code (or its aliases) in the install log(s)?

    I also did not have pending.xml and when trying to run WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe received the same 80073712 error message. I first had to run WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe /uninstall and then ran WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe /wuforce

    I tried the search for "pending.xml" as well and did not find it. However, I
    went ahead and downloaded and installed the the latest Windows Update version
    from the referenced site
    (http://download.windowsupdate.com/v7/windowsupdate/redist/standalone/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe) and then ran Windows Update and it worked

    IS there a solution to this problem?

    There is no solution to this MS error other than to reinstall Vista!

    advised that there "was no way to fix this error" sorry, go and get stuffed
    customer. We have your money now it is a problem belong you!!! God I love
    Microsoft!

    After a long search, some good inputs, here finally a procedure that worked
    After a long search, some good inputs, here finally a procedure that worked
    for me
    All credits to CogitoErgoSum on forums, hereunder his procedure with a
    slight modification

    I assume MS will deliver a patch sooner or later for this issue... however,
    fixed it with the help of MS Support

    DISCLAIMER: This solution fixed the problem for me, I cannot guarantee i
    will fix it for anybody else! Moreover, renaming system files might corrup
    your system!!

    The issue is that the WUA 3.0 (7.0.6000.374) upgrade is corrupted
    essentially the system reports the WUA to be 7.0.6000.374 but the files o
    the disk are still from the old version (you can check some of the DLLs lik
    wups.dll, wuaueng.dll etc... in the windows\system32) ... and you canno
    install the WUA 3.0 even manually

    delete the following file

    C:\windows\winsxs\pending.xml

    Since Windows security will not allow you to do this, hereunder the
    procedure to take ownership of the file

    run a command prompt with "Run as Administrator"
    Type in the following commands

    takeown /f C:\Windows\winsxs\pending.xm

    cacls C:\Windows\winsxs\pending.xml /G <YourUsername>:

    then delete the fil
    Reboot the machine, then manually install the WUA 3.0 downloadable fro
    here
    http://download.windowsupdate.com/v7/windowsupdate/redist/standalone/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.ex

    This should fix the Error 80073712 when the other solutions do not work

    BE AWARE that renaming C:\windows\winsxs\pending.xml might hav
    unrecoverable impacts on your Vista installatio

    FOUND A Solution :) 80073712 / WIndows Vista Update will no longer work
    Hi Guys,

    I just posted a fix that worked for me. Try it

    Re: Error number 80073712
    As a result of this comand:

    takeown /f C:\Windows\winsxs\pending.xml

    your user name will display which you can use in place <YourUsername> in
    this command (drop the < and >, one space after G and no space after
    <YourUsername>):

    cacls C:\Windows\winsxs\pending.xml /G <YourUsername>:F

    You can do the delete here too with this command:

    del C:\Windows\winsxs\pending.xml

    If the del command works (no errors displayed) you can go on and do the
    download of Windows Update. It worked for me!

    and also used the commands

    You can do the delete here too with this command:

    However, when trying to delete the file, I get the error...

    Access Denied.

    I do have full administrative privilages but no matter what I do, I cannot
    delete the file. I also tried to take ownership via the file properties but
    all that is greyed out for adding security or users.

    Any ideas how I can delete this file.

    Thanks

    I have not rebooted yet so cannot confirm if this fix works but at least the
    file is now deleted - thanks for your previous posting though.

    I was finally successful in removing the pending file. But when I tried to
    install the WUA, it said that it was already installed and would not let me
    do it. Also, the pending file is now missing in the sxw directory. I tried
    to re-add it but can't. Should I be worried? The original error msg no
    longer appears when I try to update, but a new one now appears (800B)100).
    But this time it allows me to hide the file that is trying to download and
    install. mYet, everytime I restart the computer there is a msg saying that
    there is an update waiting. Heaven help us!

    the WUA 3.0 installer itself is failing and triggering the same error code. I
    reported the problem via Control Panel\Problem Reports and Solutions. So far
    no solution received. Any clues

    By the way, this was a fresh re-install of Windows Vista I did last week
    after installing a new motherboard with different chipset (thus requiring the

    I did so while I was posting here. I got a late reply; technical support told
    me to stop the Windows Update service via some administrative command in the
    command prompt, then rename C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution to some dummy
    name, then restart Windows Update service via another similar administrative
    command. Then run an SFC command which detected several corrupted files but
    could not repair them, and a CBS log was generated which I compressed into a
    ZIP archive and sent back to technical support. Meanwhile I tried to run
    again the WUA 3.0 installer but again got the error 80073712. But then
    decided to run again Windows Update from the Control Panel, and this time it
    checked and detected several updates missing from my computer (that is, no
    more error 80073712). So perhaps WUA 3.0 was already installed in my machine.
    Now my worry is on those corrupt files reported by the CBS log generated by
    the SFC command.

    I contacted MS technical support. This is what they told me:

    ***

    Step 1: Rename the Windows Update Softwaredistribution folder
    ==========================================
    This problem may occur if the Windows Update, Software distribution folder
    has been corrupted. We can refer to the following steps to rename this
    folder. Please note that the folder will be re-created the next time we visit
    the Windows Update site.

    1. Close all the open windows.
    2. Click the "Start" Button, click "All programs", and click "Accessories".
    3. Right-click "Command Prompt", and click "Run as administrator".
    4. In "Administrator: Command Prompt" window, type in "net stop WuAuServ"
    (without the quotes) and press Enter.

    Note: Please look at the cmd window and make sure it says that it was
    successfully stopped before we try to rename the folder. However, if it
    failed, please let me know before performing any further steps and include
    any error messages you may have received when it failed.

    5. Click the "Start" Button, in the "Start Search" box, type in "%windir%"
    (without the quotes) and press Enter.
    6. In the opened folder, look for the folder named "SoftwareDistribution".
    7. Right-click on the folder, select "Rename" and type "SDold" (without the
    quotes) to rename this folder.
    8. Still in "Administrator: Command Prompt" window, type the command "net
    start WuAuServ" (without the quotes) in the opened window to restart the
    Windows Updates service.

    Note: Please look at the cmd window and make sure it says that it was
    successfully started. However, if it failed, please let me know before
    performing any further steps and include any error messages you may have
    received when it failed.

    Step 2: SFC
    ============
    Use the System File Checker (SFC) to scan system files for Vista
    =====================================================
    The System File Checker tool enable an administrator to scan all protected
    files to verify their versions. To do so, follow these steps:

    1. Click "Start", type "CMD" (without quotation marks) in the "Start Search"
    box. Right click on the "CMD.exe" file, choose "Run as Administrator"
    2. Copy and paste "SFC /Scannow" (without quotation marks) in the "Open"
    box, and click "OK".

    Note: There is a SPACE between "SFC" and "/Scannow", this command will take
    several minutes to complete and may require access to the Windows
    installation source files. If you are prompted to insert the CD, click
    "Continue" each time it prompts. In addition the process may stop at 99%. If
    this happens, please wait for some time and close it if it still stops at 99%.

    ***

    The SFC command above detected several corrupted files on my system but
    could not repair them, and a CBS log was generated which I compressed into a
    ZIP archive and sent back to them by email.
    They later told me on the same message to run Windows Update from the
    Control Panel. This time it checked and detected several updates missing from
    my computer (that is, no more error 80073712).

    Now my worry is on those corrupt files reported by the CBS log generated by
    the SFC command.

    Alright well I have an issue as well. I have tried various other solutions
    and when I try this and search for C:\windows\winsxs\pending.xml it says the
    file is not found. I tried to perform the other steps to no results. I also
    used the windows error-checking option and this didn't help either. Basically
    I can't find a solution to this problem. I would perform a system restore
    however the date that this started happening is too far back so a system
    restore would do nothing. Am I basically Doomed?

    So, you tried a search something like this to find that tip?

    (0x80073712 OR 80073712 OR 14098) site:microsoft.com


    If guessing doesn't work perhaps it's time to try some diagnosis? <eg>

    Try installing it manually with verbose mode logging?

    What is the context of the code (or its aliases) in the install log(s)?

    I tried the search for "pending.xml" as well and did not find it. However, I
    went ahead and downloaded and installed the the latest Windows Update version
    from the referenced site
    (http://download.windowsupdate.com/v7/windowsupdate/redist/standalone/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe) and then ran Windows Update and it worked.
