Update for Windows Vista (KB942763) returns error 80070643

Update pertains to revised Daylight Savings Time laws in many countries.
Error solution directs to switch Office Source Engine (OSE) to Automatic
(Delayed Start) in Microsoft Management Console. Do not have any Microsoft
Office products installed. Have tried updating several times to no avail.
Tried manually downloading from MS web site to no avail. All other updates
install no problems. System adjusted to new time change dates just fine in
beginning of November. Systems says will adjust second Sunday in March as
per Energy Policy Act of 2005. Other forum and newsgroup discussions refer
to Windows Live Toolbar which is not installed. Please advise.

I got the exact same error.

Manually updating doesn't work either.

FWIW, same problem here with Win VISTA Ultimate.

Quite a bit of chatter on the net about this.

MS has been very quiet. Maybe they will have a fix!?

Wow, so many people with the same issue.

Where is the Microsoft Rep when you need one?


Same problem, Vista Home Premium and Comodo firewall. The microsoft article
on error code 80070643 (which I get) says the solution is to restart OSE.exe,
which is supposed to be listed under your services. It apparently doesn't
exist on my computer.

I have the same problem, also tried several times & downloaded manually -
however, I do have Office Home & Student 2007 installed. I tried the
directions in the help file, but still no luck.

It would seem that this update also causes issues with certain applications under Windows XP. The update did not appear to have any errors as it installed automatically while I was away from work. However when I attempted to run CorelDraw version 9 (Compatibility mode Windows 98) it came up with an error "SmartHeap Library:. MEM_BAD_POINTER" and would not load the program. I know it was working perfectly prior to the update. I was able to get it to run by clicking OK about 30 times until it started but that is not acceptable. When I saw this thread I decided to uninstall KB942763 since it was the only System update and the rest were just misc security patches that had no bearing. When I restarted after uninstalling I had absolutely no problem opening Corel. Maybe this will shed some light on what other problems this patch may have caused.

I have Vista Home Edition, with Comodo Firewall 3 and Spywareterminator
Resident protection. I have the same problem too. I tried to install
manually too with no success. I have Microsoft Office 2002 XP and their
telling me about Microsoft Office 2003... I don't understand. Waiting for
the Microsoft team to correct their error here as soon as they can. For now,
I've masked this update in Windows Update.

I think that Microsoft is doing a bad work with this. How can it be that so
many people have the same problem with an important update (that's what they
claim).
I have a laptop with windows vista premium installed. I change the office
modifications, I tried to download it manually unsuccessfully and I search
the net for answers unsuccessfully.
I think that only someone from the company itself can solve this problem.

Re: Update for Windows Vista (KB942763) returns error 80070643

Hi,
I have the same problem as everyone here with this update. Not only
cannot I not update KB942763 but everytime now when I turn on my
computer the automatic update feature keeps trying to download and
install the update and now my update window in the control panel is
filling up with failed messages and still showing that I need to
downoad and install an update. This is very annoying. I've been
working with Microsoft support regarding this problem but to no
avail. You would think that M$ would have some clue! Also, since
this update is for Daylight Savings and since my clock/date shows the
next daylight savings begins March 9th that this update wouldn't be
necessary in the first place. M$ still hasn't answered that point so
I can't tell you here.

It is a general advice that it can help if all AV/Firewall/Antispyware etc
are disabled, and progs running in the background, after disconnecting from
the net, of course.
Enable before connecting back onto the net.
