I have been been trying to figure this out for a long time now and have made no progress so I'm hoping someone can help.

 

I have an installer script to install a predefined set of Microsoft hotfixes on a new Windows 7 boxes.  When installing from a network mapped drive with"

 

"C:\Windows\system32\wusa.exe" "Z:\Documents\OS_Hotfixes\Win7-2008\32bit\Windows7SP1\Windows6.1-KB2559049-x86.msu"

 

I get an error: Installer encountered an error: 0x80070003 The system cannot find the path specified.

 

If I run the same hotfix from the local machine:

 

"C:\Windows\system32\wusa.exe" "C:\Share\HostDocuments\OS_Hotfixes\Win7-2008\32bit\Windows7SP1\Windows6.1-KB2559049-x86.msu"

 

The hotfix installs just fine with no unexpected errors.

 

All hotfixes act the same way so it's not this specific one.  I have also run sfc /scannow on the box with no success.

 

This is a Windows 7 SP1 32 bit host.

 

Any ideas?

 As I read the error, you're trying to access a Z: disk which is not connected.


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

Hummm, It's mapped and I'm looking at the files on it.  Could it be the way wusa is handing the mapped drive?

 I've never tried installing hotfixes that way.  Why not just use Windows Update?  Alternatively you could copy the files from the X: drive to your C: drive and then installing them that way.

 

Good luck.

The systems are isolated non-internet connected so WSUS isn't an option.  Copying to the local machine is an option and is the solution right now, but copying 1.5 GB of hotfixes over the network is a pain.  It would be better to put it a single location and run them from a mapped drive.

We use WPKG for all of our network updates... don't get any trouble at all.
