  • Can you reproduce the issue?

    try running from the command line:

    cscript.exe ztiwindowsupdate.wsf /debug:true /debugcapture

    that should show the line number where the program crashed.

    Additionally, you might check the WindowsUpdate.log file to see if it reported any errors.

  • Hi everybody,

    I'm getting this message time to time and I don't know why. I have the ZTIWindowsUpdate.log who says:

    <![LOG[Ready to Opt-In to Microsoft Update: WUA Version: 7.6.7601.18804]LOG]!><time="15:35:07.000+000" date="04-14-2015" component="ZTIWindowsUpdate" context="" type="1" thread="" file="ZTIWindowsUpdate">
    <![LOG[ZTI ERROR - Unhandled error returned by ZTIWindowsUpdate: ActiveX component can't create object (429)]LOG]!><time="15:35:37.000+000" date="04-14-2015" component="ZTIWindowsUpdate" context="" type="3" thread="" file="ZTIWindowsUpdate">
    <![LOG[Event 41002 sent: ZTI ERROR - Unhandled error returned by ZTIWindowsUpdate: ActiveX component can't create object (429)]LOG]!><time="15:35:38.000+000" date="04-14-2015" component="ZTIWindowsUpdate" context="" type="1" thread="" file="ZTIWindowsUpdate">

    Do we have an explanation for this issue? Or, do you know how to fix that?

  • As I mention in my last post, open an elevated cmd.exe window, and try running the script manually with the following command:

    cscript.exe \\server\deploymentshare$\scripts\ztiwindowsupdate.wsf /debug:true /debugcapture

    and capture the error output in the reply.

    Otherwise there is nothing to do.

  • I am receiving this error, however, when I go and rerun that script, it runs fine with no errors.  I re-imaged the PC again, ran the script in debug mode like you requested and this is what I am getting:

    Pretty much the same error.
