Ok I've searched the site and found several "fixes" but none of them worked for me.
I have had several installs fail with the 8007652 code Unknown error. Last night I decided to try to install all of my updates manually and bypass the Microsoft Windows Updater. I managed to install all but 2 updates...
Security Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 2 ( KB954430 )
Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 2 ( KB973688 )
Each time I try to install them with Windows Update I get the following message...
Code 652 Windows Update encountered an unknown error.
When I try to install them manually I get the following message...
Error opening installation log file. Verify that the specified log file location exists and is writable.
These are the 2 files I have downloaded from Microsoft and tried to install...
I know this is a common problem and, like I said before, the "fixes" don't work for me. They do NOT show up in the "Installed Updates". I've even tried to run them from the CMD inside windows with the same "log error"
Anyone have any ideas that will work with this? Can I just hide these updates and forget about them?
