The Windows update error code 643 in Windows 7 Operating System could be resolved by the two methods. 

The first one is to fix the MSI software update registration corruption issues. 

For this you have to first confirm whether the product is affected or not. 

Then you have to re-create software update cache registry details and should delete the remaining software update references. 

If the problem is not solved then, you are advised to repair the .NET Framework using the .NET Framework Cleanup Tool.

Hi Dear,

Thanks that you have shared your problem with us here.

This error code 643 Related to .NET Framework.

Dear .NET Framework is very huge platform and it cannot be updated so easily.

It has a great mass containing files to be updated which requires more time to be connected with internet.

On the other hand if you have not installed .NET Framework then kindly first install its latest version then it will automatically be updated every time you connect to internet.

Purely this is .NET Framework 643 Error.

Kindly act as above mentioned, you will be satisfied.

Thanks

Hello, this error is seen if you don't install updates frequently and also if your computer .Net framework is not updated which also installed in the windows updates file. So to avoid such errors please keep your PC updated and install all the recommended updates. If you install all of them and still getting this problem please check your internet connection is in good working condition then backup your important data and then update it again.
