Windows 7 - Error 800700C1

Asked By myriad36 on 25-Sep-07 09:44 AM
I am not sure why it is doing this, searched the web and saw a lot of people
have the problem, none have had success fixing it.  Can't update Windows
Vista!

Hi:

I found this information some in a forums. Take a look:


SUCCESS!

The offending file in question was SMIPI.dll

You can get it off of the vista install disk (just search for it I forget

the path) or another working system. It's under

C:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-servicingstack_31bf3856ad364e35_6.0.6000.16386_non
e_07289f4cca5f6990

yes that is a real folder name (jeesh).

You'll have to take ownership under properties>security>advanced to actually

copy over it. Once it's replaced windows update ran fine.

Had a bunch of other corrupted files that I haven't dealt with yet but this

was the cause. Suggest running sfc/scannow anyway as that might have fixed

something else.

Good Luck!

Thanks Jaun; however, I have a Dell, therefore, no install disc, just a
recover disk with no dll file.  Is there another place I can find this dll?

Thanks again.

Thanks, Jim.  Replaced existing DLL with the above, still no difference.  I
suspect the above mentioned solution to have been successful because of the
sfc/scannow command, but in my Windows, it says:

Maybe this might shed some light...

Hi Myriad - Try the following in order:

Procedure 1:

- First, you will need to install or re-install the updated KB927891.  See
here:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/advisory/927891.mspx and here
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=927891 for a complete fix.

- Then install the newly released 'standalone' version of Windows Update
Agent 3.0, v. 7.0.6000.374, for 32 bit machines which is available here:
http://download.windowsupdate.com/v7/windowsupdate/redist/standalone/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe

It may say "Install is not needed since Windows Update Agent is
already installed."  If so, then run the exe with the command line switch
/wuforce     , like this:

WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe /wuforce

to force the install.

Now reboot.  Now reboot again.  (Yes, twice.)

Now go back to Windows Update - what you just did should force a
re-installation of the lastest update to the Windows Update software.  Allow
this and then try your updates again.


If that doesn't fix the problem, then try

Procedure 2:


1.  Go to http://wiki.djlizard.net/Dial-a-fix  and download Dial-a-fix
v0.60.0.24 (2006-10-27)  Here's a direct download link:
http://djlizard.net.nyud.net:8080/software/Dial-a-fix-v0.60.0.24.zip  and a
secondary:  http://djlizard.net/software/Dial-a-fix-v0.60.0.24.zip  from
that page's download section, here:
http://wiki.djlizard.net/Dial-a-fix#Mirrors.2Fdownload_locations.2C_and_articles .

2.  Unzip it to a new folder at root with any name, e.g.
c:\Dial-a-fix-v0.60.0.24

3.  Now double click on Dial-a-fix.exe in that folder.

4.  Click on the following:
- Options/tooltips (just to get an idea of what it does in each
section.
- Both boxes under Prep
- The 'all' (top) box for Sections 2, 3 and 4 (which will automatically
be set when you check 3)
- In Section 3 click on 'Flush Software Distribution' and choose 'Yes'
to force the deletion of the folder.
- In Section 5, 'ActiveX controls/codecs', 'Programming
cores/runtimes', 'Explorer/IE/OE/shell/WMP', and 'Object linking libraries
(OLE)' only.
- Click 'Go' .  (Some of the re-registrations may take what seems like
a
long time for some .dll's - Don't be impatient.)

5.  Reboot.  Now Reboot Again.  (Yes, twice.)


Now try Windows Update again.  If it still doesn't work, then re-do
Procedure 2 in Safe mode (Section 2 will be greyed out.) and then try
Windows Update again.


See if that does the trick, and, again please post back with your
experience.
