Windows OS Patch updates - DISM Error 0x800f081e RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm trying to install hotfix windows6.1-kb2936068-x64 W2k8 R2 Standard Server on a esx 5.5 vm.

    I downloaded the file windows6.1-kb2936068-x64 and used the expand -f* command to extract then ran the DISM command on the TEMP location the four files extracted to.

    It starts with processing as below.

    C:\Users\Administrator>DISM.exe /Online /Add-Package /PackagePath:C:\Temp\Patch1
    35-May2014\windows6.1-kb2936068-x64_2220393ceea2d6917a99a4647d9e28dcca4c8dbd.cab
    
    
    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 6.1.7600.16385
    
    Image Version: 6.1.7600.16385
    
    Processing 1 of 1 - Adding package Package_for_KB2936068~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~
    ~6.1.1.0
    
    
    Error: 0x800f081e
    
    The specified package is not applicable to this image.
    
    The DISM log file can be found at C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log

    I have even tried to install this with appropriate msu file. still it says : The update is not applicable to your computer.

    I have googled everything, tried chaning region ect. still fruitless.

    Anyone can help please?

    I my limited experience in using DISM, I have found that I have to image the technician computer where DISM is running. Sometimes the technician computer becomes corrupt after using DISM several times and a clean image resolves most error messages.
