  • How to replace "apply downloaded update now" with "Check for Updates" in the menu help when the update fails because the downloaded update files are missing but the "Ready to install update" window keeps appearing?


    I have another type of problem with Firefox


    Window "Ready to Install" Firefox "Software Update" appeared. The folder "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\updates\0" contained the files update.mar, update.status and update.version. Each of the 3 files have been deleted. The next time that Firefox has been started, no update occurred because update files were missing. In the Menu bar, clicking Help showed in the menu drop-down that "apply downloaded update now" was always on the list. By clicking on "Apply downloaded update now" open "Software Update" window "Ready to install update", so that Firefox still considers that the update files exist, but they do not. In the window "Software Update", by clicking on "Restart Firefox" restart of Firefox, but once again it there's no update, and remains "apply downloaded update now" on the Help menu. How can "Apply downloaded update now" be replaced by "Check for Updates" so the update files can be downloaded?

  • Windows Update: failed. __Code 643 windows Update encountered an unknown error. _ * AND * __I cannot repair Windows 7 with the disc either. My guess is: these issues are related...? __

    I have THREE questions which PEUVENT all be linked togther... What do you think?

    [I am slot as Windows 7 Ultimate (free upgrade to Dell PC w/purchase) on a Dell 64 bit PC XPS435]
    I've upgraded from Vista about 3 weeks ago.

    #1 - Two weeks ago I had a problem with the installation of Nero/LiquidTV-TiVo to my PC... (this is also when the problem started).
    To get the "Nero" thing figured out, I took the advice of someone on the Forum/Blog of Nero. The person has provided a lenghty explanation how to uninstall LiquidTV completely by removing the registry files... I don't really know what I'm doing in the registry, but everything that I helped my problem of Nero, but I couldn't tell you WHAT I deleted OR if I have deleted any bad subfolders or whatnot!... the next time I started my PC is when the NEW NUMBER is right.

    #2 - On my next BOOT, Windows Update has found an IMPORTANT update:

    A security update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 2 for x 64 systems (KB954430)

    .. .and it fails every time, it tries to install saying this:

    Windows Update - failed

    Code 643 Windows Update encountered an unknown error.

    "Get help with this error" provides little or no help... but it says this:
     "WindowsUpdate_00000643" "WindowsUpdate_dt000"

    All the research I did, the problem seems to be with Microsoft .NET Framework... .and all the solutions I found talking about it, "UNINSTALL all THE .NET FRAMEWORK & REINSTALL" ... I tried and there is no .NET Frameworks listed in Add/Remove, and when I press on ' VIEW INSTALLED UPDATES'... " on my PC it says, "no updates are installed on this computer"... what the _____?

    #3 - Today, I thought I would just pop the WINDOWS 7 installation disc and do a repair/upgrade... It will not be upgraded.
    He cycles most of the way through, then he Has STOPPED and says this:

    The following problems prevent upgrade Windows. Cancel the upgrade, perform each task, (it lists only a SINGLE task), and then restart the upgrade to continue.

    • Windows needs to be restarted if necessary to system files can be changed before you continue.

      Does not help restart. He tried 3 times and he ends up doing the same thing.
      Is it possible I deleted something out of the register so far here and which is cause of all this?
      If so, is it possible to fix WITHOUT doing a new install of Windows 7?
      OR... anything can be a problem... Please HELP!

      (And please note: I am a first year student college with specialization in computer science... but I just started last semester, so I don't know what I should... yet. - though, I SHOULD have known better than to mess with the registry!) My bad).

      Thanks a lot for your time in advance, and I look forward to hear from you!  VikeMike4

  • BlackBerry 10 when the update fails, where are the temporary files?


    My phone was about 1 GB of available and did an automatic download of the 10.3.2. When I tried installing it says that I need an additional 480 megs. I tried to use the link to date, and it failed (with a msg saying that the update has been interrupted). Then, I deleted about 1 GB of data and tried again. Always has failed, but now I find myself with only 300 megs free.

    It seems that the update has eaten to the top of my storage somewhere, probably with temporary files, but I can't find them. Where can I look to see where these files are located so that they can be removed? Control of the storage of the device shows nothing out of the ordinary.


    They are not in an accessible area of the user. Indeed, given the penalty, I actually recommend that go you to an auto-loader in order to avoid any corruption that chess can be introduced. I hope that you already have a backup.

    Good luck!

  • Update of Lightroom 6.3 fails to "extract files".

    What to do about this: update with creative from 6.1 to 6.3 cloud fail repeatedly with "update failed - impossible to extract the downloaded files. Try to press... (U44M1i210) ». A new attempt of many time fails and quickly without web access, possibly due to a corrupted download that I can not get rid of without knowing what/where, etc. I looked for hours for a similar question and solution, none appeared.

    At this same time attempt, I put PS CC (2015) with creative without a hitch and other cloud worked / works as expected. So I think it's a problem of local file, but I don't know where the files are located.

    I am concerned about the uninstall to start over because if it continues to fail, I have uninstalled 6.1 yet I have an ongoing class to teach with that on the screen. I would far rather 6.1 for classes, than nothing.

    I need help expertise. Thanks in advance.

    Creative cloud costs $50 per month and Microsoft Office 365 costs $24 per month for their top plan which includes the largest value of Creative Cloud product (Office Premium Destop on 5 (not 2) machines, Office Web Apps on any machine, Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Lync and Skydrive Pro more a Public facing Internet site with your own domain name.)

    But in more more product for the money, Microsoft provides telephone support 24 hours a day for Office 365.  Everything for 24 $par month.
