    WSUS Install Failure on Win2k3 Std. (PSFSIP failed to install)

    I am trying to install WSUS on a Windows 2003 Server with all the critical updates applied, all pre-required installed and SQL Server 2003 installed. The installation is failing at the time of installing PSFSIP. I am also not able to find any information of this PSFSIP on google as well. By using a domain admin account I am installing it, this box is normally not a DC but a member server. Check the below log for the same:

    Success ASP.Net is installed successfully
    Error Failed to open MSI package:
    C:\WSUSSetup\ENU\SUS\WUSSetup.msi (Error 0x80070003: The system cannot find the path specified.)
    Error Failed to determine if locale is English. Assuming non-english ... (Error 0x80070003: The system cannot find the path specified.)
    Success MSXML2 is already installed on this machine
    Success Initializing MWUS installation
    Success Installing PSFSIP
    Success VerInstallFile return code: 65536
    Error Failed to install PSFSIP (Error 0x80004005: Unspecified error)
    Error InstallPSFSIP failed (Error 0x80004005: Unspecified error)
    Error Installation of PSFSIP failed (Error 0x80004005: Unspecified error)
    Error PerformInstall failed (Error 0x80004005: Unspecified error)
    Success Rolling back Installation

    Can anyone tell me how to get rid of this issue? Thanks.

    Re: WSUS Install Failure on Win2k3 Std. (PSFSIP failed to install)

    You can do one thing, zip and send me the below things in email:

    -contents of %program files%\update services\logs directory
    -%windir%\setupapi.log

    Also, I dont think that a separate log is created in %windir% for PSFSIP because it is a part of the WSUS install, but you may want to sort the contents of %windir% by date and check if there is a log with the same timestamp like your failed WSUS installation.

    try this:
    1. regsvr32 /u psfsip.dll
    2. rename psfsip.dll in %windir%\system32 to OLD-psfsip.dll
    3. try to install again
