Microsoft Windows Installer 3.1 will not install

Keep trying to install updates and above installer 3.1 will not install. Auto
update is turned on. Yesterday there were several updates not installed.
Today, I just get the one message about the MS Win installer 3.1. The shield
remains in the taskbar advising me that updates are ready to be installed,
but I keep getting the same response. Any thoughts on this??

Re: Microsoft Windows Installer 3.1 will not install

We need some more information -

On the WU Website, select your history of updates - now click on failed update (red mark)
and see if there is an error code.
If there is an error code, write it down and post back or in the alternative, do a search
for the error code.

Also - how to view the Update log in Windows:-

Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type: %windir%\windowsupdate.log
and then click OK.

Scroll down towards the bottom for the latest entries to locate the error code(s)
associated with the latest failed attempt to download/install. If appropriate copy and
paste the error codes into this thread so someone may be able to assist you. On the other
hand, you may be able to find the error code and other suggestions by searching the
Newsgroup.

Also check Windows folder for file called KB******.log (****** = number of update ie
KB896688) and post the contents of the failed update.
This may provide further clues as to why the update failed.

How to read the Windowsupdate.log file:

You cannot install updates that you download from the Windows Update Web site on a Windows
XP-based computer

Re: Microsoft Windows Installer 3.1 will not install

1. First install the newly released 'standalone' version of Windows Update
Agent 3.0, v7.0.6000.374
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/932494

2. Now (re)install this (updated) fix:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927891

NB: Windows Update/Automatic Updates started offering 927891 on 22 May-07.
If "Update for Windows XP (KB927891)" is listed in Add/Remove Programs (make
sure Show Updates box is checked), it's already installed. cf.
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sec...ry/927891.mspx

3. Reboot.

Re: Microsoft Windows Installer 3.1 will not install

Try the following:-

Click Start, select run and type the following (pressing okay after each one):-

net.exe stop wuauserv

regsvr32 wuapi.dll
regsvr32 wups.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 wucltui.dll
regsvr32 MSXML3.dll

net.exe start wuauserv

Try WU again.

If that fails - try manual download

Windows Installer 3.1 Redistributable (v2)
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en

If that doesn't help - reinstall the ActiveX controls (because they may have become
corrupt):-

Follow this article -
The Windows Update Web site and the Microsoft Update Web site do not scan for updates when
you repair a failed installation of Windows XP Service Pack 2 or of Windows XP Service
Pack 1
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/916259

This articles still mentions the old WU client so see below for the new WU Client 3.0

Note the new WU Client 3.0 - Windows Update Agent:
http://download.windowsupdate.com/v7...gent30-x86.exe

or for the 64 bit version
http://download.windowsupdate.com/v7...gent30-x64.exe

Re: Microsoft Windows Installer 3.1 will not install

I checked which version I had of the MSI, and it was 3.1.4000.4039. I have
tried every suggestion that was given, except to reinstall the ActiveX
compents, which I don't know how to do. At last check, I have 74 security and
other updates to install, but they fail to install every time. Here is latest
entries from windowsupdate.log

It looks to me like some updates are not required now, but others are still
failing.
I also sent a message to Microsoft about the problem, don't know how long
they have to respond.
I had to reinstall windows a couple months ago and used the CD that came
with the computer, so that version was probably from 2001 or 2002. It looks
like the updates have been failing since then. The BITS has been set to
automatic and is started.

Re: Microsoft Windows Installer 3.1 will not install

Thread history:
http://groups.google.com/group/micro...d3cd13e462dd40

Your problem now isn't installing MS Windows Installer 3.1 and Windows
Update Agent version is current.

Have you tried TauArian's recommendation?...

<QP>
[1.] Click Start, select run and type the following (pressing okay after
each one):-

net.exe stop wuauserv

regsvr32 wuapi.dll
regsvr32 wups.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 wucltui.dll
regsvr32 MSXML3.dll

net.exe start wuauserv

[2.] Try WU again.
</QP>

If still no joy, open a free Support Incident. Customers in the U.S. and
Canada can receive technical support from Microsoft Product Support Services
at 1-866-PCSAFETY. There is no-charge for support calls that are associated
with security updates. When you call, clearly state that your problem is
related to a Security Update and cite the update's KB number (e.g.,
KB931678).

In other countries, see http://support.microsoft.com/security > "No-Charge
Support...for virus and other security-related" issues in right-hand menu
for localized contact information.

RE: Microsoft Windows Installer 3.1 will not install



DustDevil_007, I suggest running Dial-a-fix to repair Windows Update. It
does miracles.

Hi
Dustdevil isn't the only one with this problem - I have two pc's doing exactly the same thing with exactly the same results.
I also have tried everything mentioned here and would dearly love a solution.
Autoupdates fail every time. If i download and install each individual patch manually it works. (But who wants to do 72 patches manually...).

Autoupdate appears to download the patches correctly and verifies them as well. However it refuses to install whatever it downloads and says the files all have 0 bytes size. The files it downloads are on the HDD and can be manually installed, but then that's missing the point...

I've also tried reregistering the wu*.dll's, but (altho I've checked that the files are actually there and where they're supposed to be) it says I don't have the module I want to reregister...

Suggestions?

Thanks in advance
Sledge
