    Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool (KB892130)

    Hi All

    This update is failing to install everytime i run it, and then it tells me
    to "check your update history" for details but it doesn't appear in there! I
    have been away on holiday for 2 weeks and need to get some updates down.

    Regards for any help

    Windows keeps asking for "Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool
    (KB892130)" when I check for updates.
    When I download it, the update installs, then when complete the message
    reads "installation failed".
    Any cures for this, or is it supposed to do this?

    The WGA diagnostic tool has been updated to correct this problem seen by some
    customers. Please download and execute it from:

    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012

    After running the tool, please return to Windows Update and try it again.

    I tried everything myself, then I found this post and I click on the update
    supplied here and now when I go back to windows update, it runs and says
    there is no critcal updatws.

    I guess I should have mentioned that I read this solution in other threads
    and tried it. The site just tells me that my Windows is genuine, not how to
    deal with the failed install.

    If I am confirmed "Genuine" do I need to worry about the install?

    Microsoft Solution provided by another User:

    If the WGA issue occurred when the Windows system has been activated, it was
    likely caused by one of
    the following factors:

    1. A security program running background prevents the validation tool from
    running properly.
    2. The WGA engine was not installed or running properly.

    We can take the following steps and see if the issue can be resolved.

    Step 1: Disable the security programs temporarily
    ==========================
    The following programs can prevent the validation tool from running
    properly. I suggest we disable
    them temporarily to test the issue:

    Norton Security programs
    Panda Antivirus programs
    Web Accelarator programs
    Anti-Spyware programs

    If any of the above programs cause the issue, please check if it can be
    re-configured to accept the
    WGA ActiveX control. Otherwise, please temporarily disabled to enable the
    WGA validation tool.
    However, please re-enable the application after we complete the
    troubleshooting steps.

    Step 2: Install the WGA engine manually
    ==========================
    The WGA engine may have been already installed but is not working properly.
    We can use the following
    steps to reinstall it. This will ensure the engine files be copied and
    registered properly.

    1. Download the ActiveX cab file from the following link and then save it to
    the Desktop.
    http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...eckControl.cab

    Open the downloaded cab file and we will find the following three files:

    GWFSPIDGen.dll
    LegitCheckControl.dll
    LegitCheckControl.inf

    2. Click "Start", click "Run", type: "%windir%\system32" (without
    quotations) and press Enter. Copy
    the GWFSPIDGen.dll and LegitCheckControl.dll files into the opened system32
    folder.

    3. Click "Start", click "Run", type: "REGSVR32 LegitCheckControl.dll"
    (without the quotations) and
    press Enter. We will see a popup message state this process succeeded.

    4. Click "Start", click "Run", type: "inf" (without quotations) and press
    Enter. Copy the
    LegitCheckControl.inf file into the opened inf folder.

    5. Right click on the copied LegitCheckControl.inf file in the inf folder,
    and then choose Install.
    The WGA engine will be installed automatically.

    After we finish the above steps, please restart the computer and try to
    validate the Windows again.

    RE: Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool (KB892130)

    Hi

    Well I have basically the same problem. After validating my copy of XP some
    months ago Update now tells me I need the latest WGA and downloads it but
    refuses to install it. So I followed your solution which seemed to work fine,
    (install successful)until I retried Update again and it demanded to update
    the WGA and then refused to install it (again).

    Since I can't update windows til it's installed I'm a little annoyed!

    Iv'e tried combinations of Shaun's solution and the various other tips I
    found in the forum, (disabling the plug in before I install manually etc.)

    Anyone got any other ideas? Or do I just accept defeat?

    Thanks Carey

    I tried this and it validates my copy fine, but update still wants to
    download and install the WGA that won't install and so I still can't get past
    Go to collect the latest updates.

    WGA Diagnostic Data (1.5.0514.0):

    Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe: Prompt
    Allow scripting of Internet Explorer Webbrowser control: Allowed
    Active scripting: Allowed
    Script ActiveX controls marked as safe for scripting: Allowed

    I seem to remember that when I initially ran the WGA some months ago I was
    warned that there was a problem with the way my OEM (Acer) had set up the
    laptop and while this was "ok at this point in time it may cause problems in
    the future".

    I guess we reached that point. The thing that p*sses me off is that I have a
    validated version of Windows I can't update and reinstalling won't solve the
    problem because on this machine they provide a Ghost image of the original
    disk. So I'd be back to square one.

    If I can't update the OS to patch the never ending stream of security
    problems I may have to look at moving to a different OS on this machine.

    I got this info from another post and it finally worked for me too!!!
    Thanks everyone......hjparker

    "I, like a lot of people with genuine copies of windows, have experienced

    problems with installing KB892130. I've been in and out of a lot of posts on

    the subject and tried various offered solutions which have (and have not)

    worked for some people. After numerous variations, the following has worked

    and I'm now able to run the update service as it was intended.

    Download psexec.exe from:-

    http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/PsExec.html

    and put the file in root directory (C:\)

    Download the WGA update executable from:-

    http://www.download.windowsupdate.co...82dcea49a0.exe

    and install in C:\temp.

    Rename the file in C:\temp to WGA.exe (original file toooooo long)

    At DOS command line type:-

    psexec -i -s c:\temp\WGA.exe

    The above tested and works - for me at least - Hope it works for others

    Many thanks for all the inputs that got me to this position - there are too

    many to mention by name - I just grateful to the newsgroups"

    Hi

    Yes this worked for me!

    I now get past the WGA update. Yippee!!

    And I can download all those updates I've missed.

    But now they don't install.

    So I guess I'll have to try re-registering all those dll's I've already
    re-registered in the hope that I find a way around this crap update system.

    The Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool (KB892130) update failed to
    install after downloading. The system froze, I was forced to progman out.
    Even after ending the update task in progman, when trying to log off I
    recieved a message that the install was still running. I gave it more time,
    but still had to cancel out to log off.

    Now my update history has a red X and yellow question mark that says the
    installation error is 0x800706BE.

    Solving this whole issue may not even be necessary, as I was simply trying
    to update XP before upgrading to Vista - can anybody speak to that?

    regarding windows update

    i contacted microsoft and they e-mailed me this i did it and it worked....and once your download fails click on why and then it will guide you on what to do
    From the problem description, I understand that Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool (KB892130) failed to be downloaded. If I have misunderstood your concern, feel free to let me know.

    I understand the inconvenience you have experienced. Please be assured that I will do my best to help you.

    Let's take the following steps to troubleshoot this issue and manually install the WGA Tool.



    Suggestion 1: Run the WGA diagnostic tool
    ================================
    1. Please open Internet Explorer and visit the following link to download the WGA Diagnostic Tool:



    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012



    2. Save the MGADiag.exe file to the Desktop, and then double click on the file to run the tool.



    After running the tool, please return to the Windows Update website and see if the issue is resolved.



    NOTE: Some third party programs can affect the Windows Update service. If you are running any third party applications such as Spyblocker, Internet or Web accelerators (programs designed to boost the speed of the Internet connection), security or anti-virus programs (Norton, McAfee, etc.), I recommend we temporarily disable or shut them down and then try accessing the Windows Update site later. Please be sure to enable them again when the update process has been completed.



    However, if the issue persists, we can refer to the next suggestion.



    Suggestion 2: Install the WGA engine manually
    ==================================
    1. Download the ActiveX cab file from the following link and then save it to the Desktop.

    LegitCheckControl.dll
    LegitCheckControl.inf



    2. Click "Start", click "Run", type: "%windir%\system32" (without quotations) and press "Enter". Copy the "LegitCheckControl.dll" files into the opened "system32" folder.



    3. Click "Start", click "Run", type: "REGSVR32 LegitCheckControl.dll" (without the quotations) and press "Enter". We will see a popup message stating this process succeeded.



    4. Click "Start", click "Run", type: "inf" (without quotations) and press "Enter". Copy the LegitCheckControl.inf file into the opened "inf" folder.



    5. Right click on the copied "LegitCheckControl.inf" file in the "inf" folder, and then choose "Install". The WGA engine will be installed automatically.
