Here is the scenario. SQL server was uninstalled from the server not realizing that WSUS was in use there. I thought MSDE version was the one being used but apparently it was SQL server. I am trying to reinstall WSUS server but continue to get Failed to install PSFSIP Error 0x80004005: Unspecified error.

I can't seem to find what is the cause of this issue. Anyone know of a fix. I've uninstalled all the .NET stuff and re-installed it.

What is PSFSIP anyway? Any help would be appreciated.

I've pasted the log in below.

I also tried to unregister the psfsip dll

1. regsvr32 /u psfsip.dll
2. rename psfsip.dll in %windir%\system32 to OLD-psfsip.dll
3. Try to re-install.

didn't work.

Given this situation, I'd guess that your WSUS is all confused.

I'd start by :
[a] Uninstalling WSUS including the database (you can keep the content).
[b] Ensuring your SQL Server installation is fully uninstalled.
[c] Double check that there are no vestiges of any WSUS or SQL Server installation left on the machine.
[d] Run the MSI Cleanup Tool and a Registry Cleaner (or manually search for the WSUS and SQL Server keys in the HKLM hive).
[e] Triple check that there are no vestigates of any WSUS or SQL Server installation left on the machine.
[f] Reboot the system.
[g] Reinstall WSUS from scratch.

The two known (suspected?) causes of this error are:
[a] The file is registered, but doesn't exist in the location WSUS expects to find it.
[b] The file is registered, but is the wrong version.

In either case, unregistering and renaming the file should resolve the issue; unfortunately, most of the people who have encountered this issue, have never posted back with any commentary on the success/failure of this issue.

Hopefully you uninstalled all of the =application= software that uses .NET, or uninstalling the underlying .NET Framework might have just complicated the problem.

It's the "Crypto SIP" provider for signing and verifying *.PSF files (Patch Storage Files).

Re: Failed to install PSFSIP Error 0x80004005: Unspecified error

Thanks for the help Lawrence but noting i've done has worked. I am in the process of a new server build and reload of WSUS. I tried cleaning the registy and just about everything else i could think of or find on other
articles have had no luck. Just didn't want to spend anymore time with it.

thanks again.

Re: Failed to install PSFSIP Error 0x80004005: Unspecified error

Ok, i finally opened a call on this with M$. it ended up being a .NET framework issue and I was able to get a .net 2 framework cleaner tool from the tech. It was called simply cleanup_tool.exe. Google search it and you'll find it.

She ran it about 3 times and then we rebooted and reinstalled. If it fails again go to start and run. type in microsoft.net and it will open a folder. delete the the v2 .net stuff from the framework folder and try
again .net installs again. Eventually WSUS did install after some cleanup of the .net stuff.

I hope this will help other people resolve some issues with .net and WSUS playing together.

Re: Failed to install PSFSIP Error 0x80004005: Unspecified error

Thanks for the postback Mike!

This is, interestingly enough, the =first= feedback in over two years we've ever received in this group concerning actual resolution of the PSFSIP error other than the unregister/rename solutions previously presented (which have never, to my knowledge, been confirmed as a functional solution).

I've pocketed the .NET Framework cleanup tool in my bag of tricks.

I created an account here just to post that this utility fixed my problem as well. I spent a good 5 hours on this so far, searching the web and trying every possible solution I could find. This one did it. Many thanks!

Re: Failed to install PSFSIP Error 0x80004005: Unspecified error

This is the issue related to the .Net Framework which is causing the issue with the same. You need to use the .Net Framework Cleaner that will remove the problem related to the framework. Just try to run the cleanup_tool.ex and you will get it working. You can get this cleanup_tool.ex download from the Google Search. I hope this will work for you.
