### This may help

Updates are not installed successfully from Windows Update, from Microsoft Update, or by using Automatic Updates after you repair a Windows XP installation

### Try this

by In reply to I've tried...

If you can't follow this try the batch File below.

Method 1: Register the Wups2.dll file in Windows
To register the Wups2.dll file in Windows, follow these steps:1. Stop the Automatic Updates service. To do this, follow these steps:a. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
b. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
net stop wuauserv

2. Register the Wups2.dll file. To do this, follow these steps:a. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
regsvr32 %windir%\system32\wups2.dll
Note For a computer that is running Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
regsvr32 %windir%\syswow64\wups2.dll
b. Click OK on each verification message that you receive.

3. Start the Automatic Updates service. To do this, type the following command at the command prompt, and then press ENTER:
net start wuauserv
4. Exit the command prompt. To do this type exit, and then press ENTER.

Copy the text between the == signs and paste it in notepad. Save the file to C as UD.bat
Then explore to the C: directory and right mouse click on it and select Open and click on OK when the dll is registered.
==================
C:
net stop wuauserv
goto ud

:UD
regsvr32 %windir%\system32\wups2.dll
goto ss

:SS
net start wuauserv
goto end

:END

### Well Done - Your A Star !

by In reply to Try this

Hi True Blue,
Like the originator of this thread, I had the same problem with Microsoft Updates not installing after a 'Repair Re-Install'. After finding your reply "Try This", I followed your instructions and eureka, the problem was solved - every update (90 odd of them) installed 100%. Well done & Thanks for your input & support !

I can't understand why Microsoft don't issue a FIX for this problem as it must be a common fault. I have searched their Knowledge Base for answers but no matter how I phrased the error I got NO results that that were applicable.

Thanks again and keep up the good work.
Bob
