You would think MS would resolve this problem with MS Updates

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by CaliforniaDreamer, Feb 9, 2007.

  1. Like many others here posting their issues with MS Updates I too have many
    problems with MS Updates. Windows updates works fine but as soon as you
    upgrade to MS Updates you can never get it to work consistently. you would
    think that with all the posts going on in here with others having the same
    issues that Microsoft would have posted fixes and updates for this. But if
    you can't update how are you going to get that update? Well here is my
    problem. Like I said as soon as I upgrade to MS Updates I have problems. I
    get many different error codes. the favorite one is 0x8DDD0009. I found that
    if you remove the Windows Installer 3.1, reboot and reload the Windows
    Installer 3.1 that sometimes it will work but then other times it will not.
    I'm going to browse this NG for past posts but if anyone recognizes this
    error code and has a solution to post please do so. Thanks to all.

    None of that work?

    I suggest doing the following - perhaps in safe mode if it gives you trouble
    in normal mode (do normal first) - and seeing if it fixes whatever problem
    you have...

    I'm going to give you a response that should cover most bases. It is not
    mine - but it may do the trick for you...
    (It covers a lot of bases.)

    Reboot your computer and have nothing open before you start the steps....
    Just log in and follow them, then when it has you rebooting - first thing
    you should try is visiting and seeing
    what happens (in Internet Explorer.) Please come back and report!

    MS is aware of the problems some (but certainly not all) encounter when
    using Microsoft Update as the default. Until it's fixed, change your
    default back to Windows Update, and get updates of MS Office via Office

    Go to Microsoft Update > Click on Change Settings in left pane > Scroll to
    bottom of page > To Stop Using Microsoft Update > Disable Microsoft Update
    software and let me use Windows Update only (check).

  4. Shenan,

    I wrote that your hard work was NOT helpful because you did not
    provide a notion, at least, of what you are doing in Register 32. Let's
    say you are the brightest light at Microsoft but we still need to know
    what we are doing on OUR machines and the next step if it fails!.

    Thank you.

  5. <snipped original message - use Google Groups!>

    First off... This is a VOLUNTEER newsgroup.
    I am not affiliated with Microsoft.
    I do not work for them or have any obligations to them or anyone I answer
    beyond my desire to assist.

    Second - I noted quite clearly the post was *not* mine - but one that I
    located and reposted - I even gave proper credit to the original author.

    Third - while I do not mind HELPING others - I would expect that one would
    not follow advice they do not attempt to understand. What that means to me
    is that the one reading it *should* take the time to see what the advice I
    am giving them does and *if* it has been given before and *if* it helped
    others in the past, etc. I assume those posting here have some incentive to
    learn - or why ask the question? They could just pay someone else to fix it
    for them.

    Fourth - my first suggestion was a link to the proper search string -
    utilizing Google Groups and the OPs own words - that would show them MANY
    posts similar to theirs - some with solutions.

    Fifth - I'll throw you a pointer to assist you on your own research on the

    Usage: regsvr32 [/u] [/s] [/n] [/i[:cmdline]] dllname

    /u - Unregister server
    /s - Silent; display no message boxes
    /i - Call DllInstall passing it an optional [cmdline]; when used with /u
    calls dll uninstall
    /n - do not call DllRegisterServer; this option must be used with /i"...81&as_maxd=9&as_maxm=2&as_maxy=2007&safe=off&

    Each one of those regsrvr32 lines re-registers a DLL that should already be
    registered (but may have become unregistered for many reasons) on your
    system. The script also stops the Automatic Updates services and
    renames/removes directories associated with it - so it will be recreated
    when the script starts the service(s) again. That way if there was any
    corruption in its directory structure - it will not be there when done.

    Otherwise - is a fine place to start and research up
    on what the DLLs listed do.
    Maybe here?

    Last - Seeing that you still utilize the Web Interface for these
    newsgroups... might I suggest using a better, feature-filled application
    such as a true newsreader? Even using Outlook Express would make it easier
    for you to search/utilize these newsgroups than the much-agreed upon poor
    Web Interface...

  6. Hi Bill,
    I am well aware of how these NG's work and that all information given is to
    be used or taken with "no guarantees". Like Shenan wrote this is a volunteer
    NG and any posts by others offering their assistance should be used at the
    poster's own discrection. What Shenen provided is very useful and much
    appreciated. I did google the codes and pretty much came up with the same
    feedback. So Shenen I do thank you. If you are not aware or do not have the
    experience or knowledge to know what you are asking and what others are
    suggesting then I suggest you use MS Support and pay for the support call.
    That way it is guaranteed and they will work with you until the issues or
    problems are resolved.
    thanjks to all for their comments and suggestions and thanks to PA Bear to
    posting how to go back to Windows Updates. I've always wondered how I could
    do that if needed.

    YW, CD.

    In case anybody missed it:

    To make Windows Update your default after using Microsoft Update: Go to
    Microsoft Update > Click on Change Settings in left pane > Scroll to bottom
    of page > To Stop Using Microsoft Update > Disable Microsoft Update software
    and let me use Windows Update only (check).

    Not a solution, but an alternative. If you go to and use their
    updating software, you can download the windows updates just fine.
