W 7 DISM Error 87

Hi Boggin
When SFC couldn't help fix errors, I ran DISM and got Error 87. Advice and help appreciated.

Unfortunately the dism cmds don't work on Win 7.

Download and run SFCFix to see if that can repair the system - it will produce its own log.

https://www.sysnative.com/forums/downloads/sfcfix/

If it reports it is unable to repair all then register on the www.sysnative.com forum and open a thread where you may be presented with a script to repair the corruption.

You will be required to post the sfc /scannow CBS log.

Windows has another tool you can download which may or not resolve and that is the System Update Readiness Tool (SURT).

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/windows-server/deployment/fix-windows-update-errors

Scroll down to the Win 7 section.

However, a final solution could be that you will need to back up your personal files and factory reset the machine.
