Windows Update Stuck Pending

I’m not sure if these operations would cause any other problems (and if it safe to do so.), but at least I can install features now. And these are what I’ve done.

It’s important to backup before doing these.

Basically, I’m cleaning CBS update pending records.

  1. Open regedit, find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component
    Based Servicing
    . You will see PackagesPending, right click it, open Permission. Click on Advanced, change owner to Administrator (or any other users you are using). Close Advanced Window. Give that user Full
    Control
     in Permission Window. And delete PackagesPending.
  2. Repeat 1. to Reboot
    Pending
  3. Open X:\Windows\WinSxS in explorer, you will see pending.xml. In its Properties, repeat 1. And delete pending.xml.
  4. Reboot and everything looks well now.

And, don’t forget backup registry and files you deleted.

Internet Explorer Install Failing Even Though Prerequisites Are Installed

Check the IE11_main.log file in C:\Windows. Find which prerequisites the installer is not seeing. Will usually be a time out issue with the WMI Query. Can possibly see one or both of the following errors:

Setup exit code: 0x00009C47 (40007) – Required updates failed to download.

WMI query for Hotfixes timed out. Query string: ‘Select HotFixID from Win32_QuickFixEngineering WHERE HotFixID=”KB2729094″‘  Error: 0x00040004 (262148).

 

  1. Open a powershell window for each prerequisite
  2. Run the following loop command changing the KB number for each prerequisite
    1. While($true){
      Get-WmiObject -Query ‘Select HotFixID from Win32_QuickFixEngineering WHERE HotFixID=”KB2729094″‘}
