Windows 7 Pro SP1 x86: KB3108664 failure with error 0x80073712 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've come across a Windows 7 Professional SP1 x86 system which attempts to install KB3108664 daily, and fails daily with error 0x80073712. It has been doing this for weeks and weeks.

    Please note: All other Windows updates both before and since are updating successfully. Only KB3108664 is failing.

    What I have tried already:

    All run successfully.

    But KB3108664, and only KB3108664, continues to fail every time with error 0x80073712, both when run through Windows Update, and also when downloaded and installed manually.

    I looked at LOGS\CheckSUR.log, and something is definitely wrong with this update. But I do not know how to interpret what I am looking at or what to do next.

    If you need any further info, please let me know.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

  • Hi,

    How did you install Windows 7 service pack 1, Windows Update or install manually? If one of two failed, you could try another method to see what the result is.

    If every steps cannot fix this issue, I suggest you perform an in-place upgrade to repair the corrupted files:

    This guided walk-through provides steps to fix problems when installing updates.  Here are some commonly seen error codes: 0x80073712, 0x800705B4, 0x80004005, 0x8024402F, 0x80070002, 0x80070643, 0x80070003, 0x8024200B, 0x80070422, 0x80070020.   These steps should help with all errors and not just the ones listed.

    Error Code 0x80073712 occurs in Windows Update or Microsoft Update

    If you have already performed the emergency repair process and the computer still does not operate normally, you may want to do a repair/in-place upgrade of the existing installation.
