Updates :: Windows Update Kb2919355 Causes Component Store Corruption
Sep 15, 2014
I've been having problems with my laptop recently. I actually care less when it comes to updates since it's automatic, but I noticed that it refuses to install any drivers (which means I cannot access any USB drives or install programs that requites drivers) or updates, after searching for solutions on the internet, I found out in a website that said kb2919355 causes component store corruption that is irreparable, which is the update that I have already installed. I've tried repairing with DISM but it all fails, probably because the update causes the component store to corrupt when StartComponentCleanup is triggered.
I want this to be fixed but my restore point is already deleted since it's probably too old (which is weird that I'm having this problem since the update has been installed for months). I don't want to reinstall my Windows either, so what now?
I have been unable to instal updates for a while but unfortunately I put off looking into it and it has been far too long that I dont have a restore point to try.
The computer works completely fine otherwise so I would prefer to find a solution that doesn't involve reinstalling windows.
I think the problem is that the component store has been corrupted, I have tried Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth from Admin command prompt but it says Error 14098 The component store has been corrupted.
I will attach the dism.log
My spec if needed; AMD FX-8320, Radeon R9 270X 2GB , 16GB DDR3, ASRock 970 Extreme3, Windows 8.1
I have tried updating my Windows 8.1 Pro (64-bit, upgraded from Windows 8 Pro) with the new "Update 1" (KB2919355) but it always fails with ERROR code 8007005 (or 80073712).
What I have tried do to fix:
Run WindowsUpdateDiagnostic (that e.g. removes files from C:WindowsSoftwareDistributionDownload and cleans Windows update history metadata info)DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /ScanhealthDISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /RestorehealthDISM.EXE /online /cleanup-image /startcomponentcleanup
After all of this, still the update (KB2919355) fails
There must be something that Microsoft needs to fix, there are xxxxxxxxxxxx amount of similar complains and reports out there...
I have an Asus GAC computer with Windows 8 OEM version. When I go to Windows store I see the 8.1 upgrade notification. When I click on it I get a message asking me to do all the upadates. When I do all the updates, the Store notification disappears.
I have to uninstall some updates to have the notification back on the Windows store but still asking me to do all the available updates.
My Windows 8 version is fully activated 'ASUS OEM)
I'm running Windows 8 at the moment and I am trying to get 8.1 installed.
I go into the Windows Store......and I get no option at all to download and install 8.1. Windows updates are on, not sure if that even matters though. Windows Store is just not giving me any option to install it, or even tell me that its available to download.
Now, I'm in the UK, but as I understood it, Microsoft's release of 8.1 was global. I have also done several reboots of the PC, no change.
I have (also according to Windows Control Panel > Installed Updates) successfully installed KB2919355 on 13th Apr 2014. So to me, the KB2919355 is in place (and various KB installations after that, too) <- I do get all the Windows System updates (including security updates) BUT not Windows Store application updates.
So the problem is the "Windows Store failed to sync machine licenses. Result code 0x80070490" which pops into Windows Event log on daily basis.
TEMPORARILY fix: running Windows update troubleshooter fixes the problem (it stops and restarts BITS and Cryptographic services) and after a while I get a notification to the Windows Store Tile that there are new updates (if any). BUT after rebooting Windows the problem (Windows Store failed to sync machine licenses. Result code 0x80070490) always re-appears in the Event logs.
Here is the report of successful Windows update troubleshooter.
1) running DISM does not work (see below)
2) Going to Store settings and "Sync licenses" does not work
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth -> [==========================100.0%==========================] The restore operation failed. Either the repair source was not found or the comp onent store cannot be repaired. Error: 0x800f081f DISM failed. No operation was performed. For more information, review the log file. The DISM log file can be found at C:WINDOWSLogsDISMdism.log
I have had this Windows 8 64 bit laptop for 6 weeks now and I wish I had never bought it. Recently I have found that I am unable to update apps in Store or even to download new apps. I have read the responses from other members to previous requests on this subject and I have applied the 'fixes' they recommend but the problem is still there.
I have a system I built with Windows 8.0 64-bit. I have a legitimate product key, 8.0 discs and an 8.1 with update disc from 53564-murphy78-s-Windows-8-1-Server-2012r2-with-Update-MSDN-iso-files
I do NOT want to update through the Windows Store.
I was under the assumption that I would run the update disc, enter my product key and it would update my 8.0 to 8.1 automatically. Pop in my legit product key and it said it was for "another edition of windows" and to "try another key."
How can I update through the 8.1 with update disc I just burned?
i have recently installed windows 8.1 on a new extended partition while keeping my windows 8 in previous partition. do i need to install the store windows 8.1 update ? as shown in another thread this looks like it has the update
I've tried for several days after several reboots, etc. I am running a Dell OEM version of Windows 8 on an Optiplex. It just sits at "Downloading" and when I hover over it it says "0% complete". Apparently I can't use the ISO because I need a key which the OEM version does not have. how I can get this thing to update?
I thought Windows Search would be only the indexer function. So I went to Control Panel, Add remove programs, Install or Remove Windows components/resources (I have portuguese windows) And I removed Windows Search
But now I can't use any search feature (example: on explorer, on w8 start menu). So I tried to install again selecting "Windows Search" on windows components, but after click OK, nothing happens!
I have a fairly new PC running Windows 8 and I can't seem to upgrade to Windows 8.1--There are a bunch of issues-
1. Can't connect to the Windows Store--tried everything here save the refresh, which I do NOT want to do. 2. Downloaded the 8.1 ISO and burned it to a disc--get the error message that 8.1 could not be installed--0x101-0x20017 error--tried installing with a clean boot, turned off antivirus suite, etc 3.sfc /scannow does not work.
So currently I'd like to forget about the store for the moment and continue updating from the downloaded ISO. I really do not wish to restore the computer and I have a lot of software I'd need to reinstall and this would take a long time.
Attempted to update to 8.1 yesterday and the store just won't open. Every time I click on the Store tile it doesn't get past the green introductory screen before just disappearing (crashing).. Have restarted several times and used the link-through on the Windows 8.1 site. Also, I have since discovered that all apps won't open either (such as news and sports).
I am able to login to my computer using my Microsoft account but if I try logging into the Windows Store, installing any new apps or updating any of them I get random error codes that I have Googled and they don't lead to anything. I thought it might be related to security software (I use Norton Internet Security) so I tried disabling it and it didn't do anything. I have no viruses or any other kind of malware so why this is happening. I have updated my laptop to Windows 8.1 if that makes any difference.
I have Windows 8.1 RTM installed on my computer. Some days ago, Microsoft released the GA updates for the system. Windows update downloaded them, but they failed to install... I've downloaded the updates manually and applied them in the correct order... But no luck, the updates fail to install...
My son has an MSI Laptop running Windows 8.1. Following a recent Windows update (he cannot be more specific) he is no longer able to use his Admin (the only one) account. He sees the mouse pointer but the rest of the screen is black. Ctrl-Alt-Del does bring up a panel offering the usual options to shut down, reboot, Task Manager, etc. - but when I select Task Manager with the intention of seeing what processes are running,the dialogue does appear, but before it is properly displayed it vanishes.
Meanwhile the HDD light is burning constantly. If I simply leave the machine for 30 minutes or so, then the HDD activity subsides but there is still a blank screen. Moving the mouse pointer to the top or bottom right hand side of the screen has no effect.
Unfortunately we did not have the wits to set restore points Interestingly the other account (not administrator) is working without problem.
