Hi,

Just finished a repair install of XP to get my newly cloned HD. I understand that there is an issue regarding Auto Updates not working after a repair install so I did what I thought was the required fix for this issue. It didn't work. There's 2 updates that won't install, and keep reminding me everyday.

1. Microsoft Windows Installer 3.1
2. " " Genuine Advantage Validation Tool (KB892130)

My Update History shows this; "Windows IE7 dynamic installer (KB904942)" was installed on 12/29/07. Is this the same as the Installer 3.1?

Thanx for your help!

What did you try that you thought was required to fix the issue?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Did you have Internet Explorer 7 installed when you performed the repair? If so, this may cause problems with Internet Explorer (from this article: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=917964 )

If that's the case, then uninstall Internet Explorer from the Control Panel....Add/Remove programs applet and see if IE6 works properly for you.

Did you use a SP2 disk for the repair install? If not you should reinstall SP2.

Then, do the following:

Open Notepad and copy and paste the following command lines into the Notepad window:

regsvr32 /s wuapi.dll
regsvr32 /s wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32 /s wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 /s wucltui.dll
regsvr32 /s wups2.dll
regsvr32 /s wups.dll
regsvr32 /s wuweb.dll

Save the file to your desktop using a .bat extension, and then double-click the icon of the .bat file to run it. A command window will open, run the commands, and then close.

Budapest,

I used a slipstreamed CD containing WinXP ver 2002 integrated with SP2.

The 2 updates mentioned in my original post try to install themselves everytime I shut down but they don't. No other updates have come through.

I'm running the batch fix right now. What happens when this command is running? I get this one line regenerating itself at a high rate. "C:\Doc.. & Set..\Randy\Desktop>Regsvr32 /s wuapi.dll". I named the file, "regsvr32.bat". How long does this take? Its been running for about 2 hrs now, and I'm going to leave it run overnight.

It should run very quickly. I think the problem may be that you named the file regsvr32, which is the name of a Windows command. Try naming it something else and run it again.

Hey Budapest,

Thanks so much! The batch file fix did it! I changed the name and it ran perfectly and now I have all my updates.
