Windows update keeps failing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    Currently I have a Windows 7 x64 image that we use for our machines. I am getting an error from windows update that installs KB4022719 (2017-06 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Win 7 x64). It appears to install fine but after rebooting the "Configuring Windows Updates" screen appears and then after while I see the message: "Failure to configure...reverting changes". I tried downloading the .msu file and installing using Wusa so that I could see the log file. Everything in the event  log says that the update installed successfully. But when I go into control panel and look at the installed updates it says that it failed and it's still listed in the list of updates to install. Does anyone know what I can do to get this patch to either install or remove it from the list of updates to install?

  • I have found this issue is with too many files in the system TEMP folder. Delete all the files and things start working again.

    I think there is a 65535 file limit as this is about the number I have found in the folder.

    Hope this helps..

  • To remove the Update from the list you need to select the Update and select "Hide this update".

    You ill no longer see the update in the list.

    They often don't help. My system is stuck without the Anniversary update and those people in the Microsoft Community don't help. I agree that the MSDN forums is the wrong place to get help with non-developer problems but Microsoft seems to have created a monster by designing Windows 10 to just work because when it does not work no one can fix it.

    That's superseded by the Creators Update.  Try that?

    Coincidentally here is a link I happen to have open right now...

    To update your windows just follow the steps given below:

    Go to Windows  Troubleshooter 
    Press “Windows + X” and run Control panel as Admin.
    Search for “troubleshooter”, and then click Troubleshooting.

    Also, you can try this too:

    Copy the following command

    Hope it will help.
