Problems with validation and install of KB2454826 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Trying to install  KB2454826

    This asks for Validation.  I try to run this, but I see nothing.  Try alternate validation, get message that validation method is no longer valid.

    On validation diagnostic here I get:

     Validation Code: 0
    Cached Online Validation Code: 0x0

    ...

    Is Admin: Yes
    TestCab: 0x0
    LegitcheckControl ActiveX: N/A, hr = 0x80070002
    Signed By: N/A, hr = 0x80070002
    Product Name: Windows 7 Professional
    Architecture: 0x00000009
    Build lab: 7601.win7sp1_gdr.120503-2030
    TTS Error:
    Validation Diagnostic:
    Resolution Status: N/A

    This has been a real time waster for me.  Congratulatoins, Microsoft, for coming up with barriers to a successful

    customer experience.

  • Make sure you are using Internet Explorer, then visit Update for Windows 7 (KB2454826) and attempt the validation check.

  • As Carey says, the probability is that you simply need to use 32-bit Internet Explorer for the download.

    If that fails, please post a full MGADiag report.

    To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool
    (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
     Once saved, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
     To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.
      - **in your own thread**, please

    Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!
