Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by vtgrandpa, Jun 19, 2008.

  1. Hm, would you please share the file version of nwwks.dll on your
    system (Windows XP Professional or Home Edition? SP2 or SP3?)
    with us?

    I'd love to give them more info but the only info I get is:

    Installation Failure

    Error Code: 0x8007F06B
    Try to install the update again, or request help from one of the following

    It looks like that is the info that most of us are getting which is little
    to no help.

  5. In that case you should search for all files which contain that hex string
    (but without the 0x prefix) which were created or changed by the update.
    E.g. search all local drives for files which changed on the day you ran the
    update, then sort that list by Date Modified, then scroll to the minutes that
    the update was run, then drag likely looking files to an open Notepad window
    and do finds in them for 8007F06B. What is the *context* of the code
    in each diagnostic file that you find that way?

    Alternatively you could guess that the last half of the code is better
    documented by its decimal value:

    <cmd_output OS="XPsp2">
    E:\>set /a c = 0xF06B
    E:\>net helpmsg %c%
    61547 is not a valid Windows network message number.

    Perhaps net helpmsg 61547 does show something useful on your OS
    (whatever it is)? ; }

    Hmm... numbers like that look somewhat familiar...

    (Live Search for

    Setup has detected that the Service Pack version of this system
    is newer than the update you are applying. There is no need to
    install this update.

    So, if that's what the code means it could be good news... ; )

    I just tried a few times and I am having the same trouble. If so many of us
    are having the same problem with this update then the problem is with the
    update not with our systems. I am also running XP.

    The problem *does* seem to be with MS Update. I spoke with a Microsoft XP
    Research Dept. Engineer and he has seen four (4) instances of this error
    code (0x8007F06B) today alone. His associates also have seen this problem.
    They are working on a resolution.

  9. Okay, your system doesn't need KB899589 at all then. Seems to be
    a detection issue on the Windows Update sit|de.
