Issue :

A XP client keeps failing on 2 updates that are marked as missing , but no errors could be found in the SCCM client logs , neither in the Windows Update Agent.log. You only get this line in the log file :

Update (Site_308CBE75-86C9-4D9D-AC4E-410079CCF8A2/SUM_5bf6aa01-2591-4966-95a6-afa7b5b6ac68) Progress: Status = ciStateError, PercentComplete = 0, DownloadSize = 0, Result = 0x80040656

Solution :

The solution is explained in KB artible :

Method for Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows Server 2003

To resolve this issue, register the Softpub.dll, Wintrust.dll, Initpki.dll, and Mssip32.dll files. To register these files, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.

2. At the command prompt, type regsvr32 Softpub.dll /s, and then press ENTER.

3. At the command prompt, type regsvr32 Wintrust.dll /s, and then press ENTER.

4. At the command prompt, type regsvr32 Initpki.dll /s, and then press ENTER.

5. At the command prompt, type regsvr32 Mssip32.dll /s, and then press ENTER.


After you re-register the above dll’s , you perform a software update scan.From than the updates will install normally.


Hope it helps ,
