UPDATE PROBLEM Error Code 8007007E.

i have windows 7 and I cannot install updates.  Error Code 8007007E.  The windows update troubleshooter does not work, nor does "System Restore"



Re: 8007007E = FileNotFoundException

The solution is in the error message "...FileNotFoundException" means there is a file missing, that is, one of the files your program depends on is not deployed.

Run SFC /Scannow to make sure there is no system corruption.


Run CheckSUR to verify there are no system packages that have become damaged.


A repair install is the usual solution of (Checksur.exe) doesn't work.

If the System Update Readiness Tool does not correct the problem, you'll need to repair Windows.

Note: It may take an hour or longer to detect and replace the incorrect data, please be patient. When it is finished, please restart the computer and run Windows Update again.

Try resetting the windows update components and check if you are able to install.

You can reset the windows update components by referring to the article:

How do I reset Windows Update components?


Restart afterwards and see if the updates download now
