Does anybody know this error?

It seems to be a general error code.... but it's a really annoying error.

That's just it, it's just a general I'm not gonna let you do that error. Do the update logs give you any clue?

Nope. that's the problem.
it's an annoying thing, I have to update an old Win7 embedded standard, the customer thinks it's an easy way to update....

"No, it's not THAT easy." :rolleyes:
I started again but now with all updates Win7 Embedded can get.
I'm curious what will happen when I get to those updates they want.

there is a script and windows patch for that. but being embedded might not work or allow to change, windows 7 update server is down could be also the reason. the wont support it. so good luck, i would concentrate up updating to 8.1 or 10.

well, as I said, it's not a "private machine", it's a machine from a customer.

So I have to do those updates and I have to solve it. I can't just update to another OS.
