WGA installation hangs RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings:

    I recently purchased a new Lenovo desktop that has Windows 7.  I have no problems with Windows 7, however, I'm running Windows XP mode and experiencing some problems.

    What happens is that, after using Windows Update to deploy updates, I get to the Windows Genuine Advantage update.  It installes and appears to complete the install.  The installation task hangs on "Running Processes After Install" and the progress bar sits at about 75% complete.

    Since this never completes, it always thinks it needs to install keeps coming back to "haunt" me.  I originally uninstalled XP mode and reinstalled it, but it appears to hang at the exact same spot!  I have let it run over night and it never moves passed this step of the install.

    I've ran the Diagnostic tool (www.microsoft.com/genuine/diag) and everything passed.  The WGA activex control installed and the site was even able to validate windows, but the update keeps failing.

    I don't think this is relavant to me problem, but I have attached the diagnostics report as requested in the stickies:

  • I was able to resolve the issue myself. 

    It appears that this hotfix requires internet connectivity.  My proxy server requires authentication.  Since XP mode was not joined to the domain, the proxy authentication couldn't happen seamlessly.  The updated didn't request me to authenticate, it just hung.

    Opening an IE window and authenticating didn't help.  I had to join the VM to the domain so authentication was seamless and let the install run.  I finished quickly and the problem is now gone.
