Windows 8 for x64-based Systems (KB2781197) FAILED

I can't install Update for Windows 8 for x64-based Systems (KB2781197). I keep getting "Failed 1 Update code 80070026".

Anyone having the same problem? I tried doing a clean boot (disabling all services at startup, using msconfig), but no luck so far.

Hi Muhammad,

I was chasing the link you sent me and I finally found the solution there. I had to run the following:
  • robocopy /copyall /mir /xj C:\$$PendingFiles D:\Temp\$$PendingFiles
  • rmdir /S /Q C:\$$PendingFiles
  • mklink /J C:\$$PendingFiles D:\Temp\$$PendingFiles
I suppose my issue was also related to my user profiles sitting at d:\users.

It finally installed the package.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
