Error 9C59 When Installing Internet Explorer 10

Much like quite a few other people on this forum, I have been having this issue for quite some time: whenever I try to install the latest version of Internet Explorer 10 via the Windows Update control-panel, it keeps giving me the above error message... and doing the same via the manual-installation file (IE10-Windows6.1-x64-en-us.exe) also gives me an error.

And before any Microsoft/'Community Star' users reply with the usual responses I've seen, yes, I've been through KB 2820688 ('Troubleshooting a failed installation of Internet Explorer 10'), including a clean boot and all that, and I'm not showing any other updates to be gotten through Windows Update, so I would like to think any prerequisites are installed. Also, the only antivirus I'm running is Microsoft Security Essentials, that is fully upgraded with definitions and all that. Also, my video card's a nVidea GeForce GTS450, which is not on the 'hybrid' list, and has the latest drivers as well.

Please help; this is starting to get really annoying.

Must admit this problem continues to occur and it is very frustrating. Microsoft should consider removing this important update or fix it so it gets automatically updated.

Just for reference, I was finally able to get past the completely unhelpful 9C59 error by uninstalling .NET 4.5.1 and an older .NET multi-targeting pack.

I had chased my tail with a lot of the other suggestions for hours with no success, but uninstalling those finally allowed IE10 to install.  Whether it was one or the other or the combination of the two, I have no idea.  I reinstalled .NET 4.5.1 afterward with no problems too.

I can confirm that just removing .net 4.5.1 was all that I required to get IE 11 installed. For a back story, my workstation was originally Win 7 Pro and had been upgraded to Win 7 Enterprise. After the upgrade it did mention it was repairing .net 4.5.1 so it must not have been repaired very well.

I'm not sure how that's supposed to help.

 

It would be a different way of installing IE10, perhaps one which would not require the missing modules.

 

And why is this thread marked as 'answered'? I'm still having this issue.


If you are the OP you can mark it Unanswered.   That's a benefit of opening a thread with your own details.   However, apparently if you don't respond to a suggestion after a week it may get marked Answered, presumably because the suggestion is seen as having merit and enabling it to be found and viewed by others more credibly as a result.

 

I'm about ready to just wipe out my computer and reinstall everything to see if that helps.


Unless you understand why those missing modules are missing and are needed, depending on what "reinstall everything" means (e.g. just using a manufacturer's recovery partition?) that may only just get you back in the same spot.   So, if you do that (e.g. as a test) you might want to capture a complete image of what you have now first.   ; }

 

 
Good luck

Interesting link,

I did a search and the link you provided did open to this page,

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/internet-explorer/download-ie

Another search result opened here,

http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/ie.aspx?q=internet+explorer

My personal favorite download site is here,

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/downloads/ie-10/worldwide-languages

But you do need to know which version to select,

Thanks for sharing your personal solution,

Cheers.

I agree. Several weeks ago I updated one of computers going from IE9 to IE10 with no problems. The update was then pushed my daughter's laptop and the install failed giving the Code 9C59 error. I tried all the advice to resolve the issue and install will not work. So, MS, please do not remind me that I have "1 important update" to install on that machine. Note - both machines are Dell, Windows 7 64 bit. I am very frustrated!!! Will try to remove IE altogether and use FireFox.

I had the same problem until I ditched trying to install IE 10 and went directly to IE 11.
I still have the same problem when trying to install IE11. Unbelievable that Microsoft cannot get this sorted out
