I 'm trying to resolve an issue with WSUS installed on Server 2012.
I've deleted WSUS for reconfiguration, but it after installation it had the sam configuration so I decided to manually remove all WSUS junk from system using recomendations from this thread http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/ru-RU/winserverwsus/thread/f447e7d6-7007-4eb6-b38b-90f92525e092
After steps described in this artile I can't install WSUS because postInstallation tasks fail with:
2013-03-19 19:23:45 Value is C:\Program Files\Update Services 2013-03-19 19:23:45 Swtching DB to multi-user mode...... 2013-03-19 19:23:46 Finished setting multi-user mode 2013-03-19 19:23:46 Writing DB settings to registry... 2013-03-19 19:23:46 Marking PostInstall done for UpdateServices-WidDatabase in the registry... 2013-03-19 19:23:46 Configuring IIS... 2013-03-19 19:23:46 Start: ConfigureWebsite 2013-03-19 19:23:46 Configuring website on port 8530 2013-03-19 19:23:46 System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception (0x80004005): The system cannot find the file specified at System.Diagnostics.Process.StartWithShellExecuteEx(ProcessStartInfo startInfo) at System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(ProcessStartInfo startInfo) at Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration.UseCustomWebSite.ExecuteIisCustomAction(String arguments) at Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration.UseCustomWebSite.Install(Int32 portNumber) at Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration.UseCustomWebSite.InstallAndConfigure(IisConfiguration& iisConfiguration, Int32 newPortNumber) at Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration.PostInstall.ConfigureWebsite(Int32 portNumber) at Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration.PostInstall.Run() at Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration.PostInstall.Execute(String arguments)
I've already found this thread http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winserverwsus/thread/e1315264-c8f8-4d90-9892-330a04ac2753 but i don't have SCCM installed on this server.
Can anybody help with this problem?

Re-do the uninstallation instructions in the cited post, and then physically remove the WSUS Administration v-root from IIS.

Thank you for response.
I did it many times, and now WSUS Administration v-root is missing after WSUS installation. It's a magic.

I've resolved an issue with WSUS reinstallation.
I fixed it in this way:
1. At first I deleted all related roles such as: WSUS, WID, IIS; and all related features
2. I've deleted all WSUS and IIS related folders on Server (%windir%\system32\inetsrv; %systemdrive%\Program Files\Update Services; %systemdrive%\inetpub; %windir%\wid)
3. Copied "inetsrv" folder from another Server 2012
4. Used DISM to Enable needed features:
DISM /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:UpdateServices /All
5. When previous command finished I had WSUS installed and there were only one step to finish repairing
"C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools\WsusUtil.exe" postinstall content_dir=Your_WSUSContent_Folder_PATH
Yep! WSUS has just been repaired.
I just can't figure out why "Add roles and features" wizard and PowerShell "Enable-WindowsFeature" cmdlets didn't work.
