You receive error code “0x80073712” when you try to install a Windows Update and then the update does not install. The problem happens if the CBS or Component-Based Servicing manifest is corrupt. Whatever operating system you are using, the first thing to do is to try to fix it with the System File Checker utility or the SFC tool.

Click “Start,” “All Programs,” “Accessories” then right-click “Command Prompt” and then select “Run as administrator.” In the command prompt, type without quotes “sfc /scannow” then hit Enter. When it is finished, restart your computer then install the Windows Update again. See if it works.

For users with Windows 8.x or higher, if SFC did not fix the problem, in the command prompt type without quotes “DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth” then hit Enter. Restart the computer and install the Windows Update again. For users with Windows Vista and Windows 7, if SFC did not fix the problem, download the System Update Readiness tool from the following list according to your operating system:

After installing the System Update Readiness tool, restart your computer and install the Windows Update again.
