Vista update error 80073712 - No updates possible

Posted: 01-06-2008, 12:09 PM
Windows Vista Update does not work any more

I just found out that my system did not update since 29 november 2007, the
error code is 80073712
on 27 november Windows Defender has been updated KB915597
on 30 november I did try to install KB917607, but it did not install

I have removed the temporary internet explorer files,
There is no pending.xml file in the winSXS folder
these are the files in the windows\system32 directory that start with WU*.*

13-11-2007 07:54 549.720 wuapi.dll
13-11-2007 07:54 31.232 wuapp.exe
13-11-2007 07:54 53.080 wuauclt.exe
13-11-2007 07:54 1.712.984 wuaueng.dll
13-11-2007 07:54 1.524.224 wucltux.dll
02-11-2006 10:46 87.552 WUDFCoinstaller.dll
02-11-2006 10:46 143.360 WUDFHost.exe
02-11-2006 10:46 181.760 WUDFPlatform.dll
02-11-2006 10:46 55.296 WUDFSvc.dll
02-11-2006 10:46 309.760 WUDFx.dll
13-11-2007 07:54 80.896 wudriver.dll
13-11-2007 07:54 33.624 wups.dll
13-11-2007 07:54 43.352 wups2.dll
18-05-2007 00:44 135.680 wusa.exe
13-11-2007 07:54 163.000 wuwebv.dll

What might be remarkable is the file date WUSA.EXE
Can that be the problem?? And how to solve this??
Or do you have other suggestions

I have the same problem, and also no "pending.xml" file that I could delete
as suggested in the previous post about this problem.

Got the same update failure problems...
I found those files 'windows\system32 directory that start with WU*.*', but
I can't remove them...
Like most people do, I regret that I have installed Vista.

I have recently had the same problem. I can not download KB942615. I get an
error code of 80073712. Any advice from the gurus.

Guru sez: Please begin your own thread about /your/ problem. State your
