First grab the zip file off this page and apply the reg file it in to add the take owner ship to the right click menu in explorer.
http://www.tweaking.com/articles/pages/add_quottake_ownershipquot_to_right_click_menu_in_vista_amp_7,1.html

Once that is done go to C:\Windows\servicing\ and right click on Packages and click on take ownership. You will now be able to copy the files into that folder.

I have attached the missing files, extract the files out of the attached zip file and put them in the C:\Windows\servicing\Packages\ folder.

Then run the pre-scan again, put a check on the box to have it add the cat files back to the database. :cheesy:

(THIS REPAIR IS USER SPECIFIC IF YOU ARE HAVING ISSUES WITH MISSING CAT OR MUM FILES MAKE A POST IN COMPUTER HELP AND I WILL HUNT DOWN THOSE FILES FOR YOU) :cheesy:

Many thanks Julian

Your advised approach and files did the trick as far as the pre-scan "fail" is concerned - that is the pre-scan now completes without error.

However, I still get an error code 80073712 on a failed install of Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3146963) Download size: 1.0 MB

Any suggestions on where I can post this problem ?

That error code relates to a corrupt CBS manifest, but see what running Windows Repair a couple of times makes of it.

MS's solution for that error is to run a sfc /scannow and if that doesn't fix it, to run the System Update Readiness Tool (SURT).

If the sfc reports it is unable to repair some files then see if SFCFix.exe can do anything for you - at least it will tell you what the corruption relates to.

http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/sfcfix.html

Scroll down this article to select the appropriate SURT download if you still need it - it's a little over 500MB download so could take a little while and then it checks for updates which can seem to take for ever.

So, thanks Julian and Boggin for your suggestions.  Recounting my actions so far:

I couldn't install KB3146963 and got error code 80073712.

Web searches suggested the MS "solution", so I ran sfc /scannow and got 3 errors which I then web searched, and as a result I ran the Tweaking.com "pre-scan".  The pre-scan revealed the issues which I reported in my original post (15/4/16).  I implemented Julian's cat files and these "solved" the pre-scan issues.  But I still couldn't install KB3146963.

Subsequently I've run SURT three or four times and run the full set of Tweaking.com Repairs a couple of times.  But still, I can't install KB3146963.

I've just run SFCFix.exe and this has reported "CBS & SFC total detected corruption count:  2", but it couldn't automatically fix these faults.

I'm minded to follow the advice of the SFCFix.exe log and seek advice on sysnative.com.

Any better suggestions ?

That's okay about posting on the Sysnative forum.

You should be able to see what the CBS log file has with this elevated command -

findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log >"%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt

This will put an icon onto the desktop which when double clicked will open the log in Notepad.

Thank you Boggin.

Do you think I'll be able to make any sense of the CBS log ?

It may just be a repeat of what SFCFix has reported, but it does say more details can be found in the CBS log and may also be useful to the Sysnative guys.

Ah I see; I followed the sysnative 'guidance' for an initial post on this error code 80073712 and this requires submitting a copy of both the SFCFix and CBS logs which I did - see   https://www.sysnative.com/forums/windows-update/19596-error-code-80073712-failed-installs-of-kb3146963-windows-7-x64.html

Well that was fortunate :) and I see you have a reply for the uploader, but you could have .zipped the file and attached it that way.

I'll follow your progress through that URL.

I tried zipping and attaching it, but it just didn't seem to work - whether it was too big or not I don't know, but the uploader worked OK  :smiley:

I see how that works now - 125MB is quite a sizable file.

The cmd I suggested would have reduced that to what SFC could and couldn't fix which makes life easier, but your helper will have the headache of trawling through that lot now and perhaps he wanted the full CBS log.

Do you mean - how do you get to use the uploader ?  If so, please see Post#2 on https://www.sysnative.com/forums/windows-update/4736-windows-update-forum-posting-instructions.html

Not a problem.

So did you have to drag the SFCFixScript.txt onto the CBS log to upload it ?

Thought you may have had another reply by now though.

No, dragged the SFCFixScript.txt onto the SFCFix.exe.  I also hoped for a relatively quick reply, but patience....

Looking at one of the related threads at Sysnative, I noticed the helper was also asking for the SURT log.

You can find this at C:\Windows\Logs (or it may be included in the CBS folder - can't remember now) then double click on the Checksur one which should open in Notepad and uploading that will add info to your thread.
