Solution For 0x8007010b Error Code

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Today, I was trying to update the windows installed on my PC. I downloaded it, and when I installed one of the service packs, this 0x8007010b error code starts appearing on the screen. I never received this error before so, I canceled the process and again tried to download it but faced the same error again. Is there any method to fix this error manually?

This 0x8007010b error indicates that some file is missing in your recent update. This error is quite dangerous as compared to others because first, you must remove this error completely before downloading the update. You can use these steps to fix this error manually-

  • Click on the ‘Start’ button.

Solution For 0x8007010b Error Code


If you receive error code “0x8007010b” when you try to install a Windows Update, try resetting the Windows Update Components. You can do this in two ways: do the resetting manually or download a script from Microsoft that will automate the resetting of the components. The easiest is to download the script. Go to Microsoft Script Center Repository and download “Reset-WindowsUpdate.ps1”.

The script will totally reset the Windows Update client settings. The script has been tested on Windows 7, Windows 8.x, Windows 10, and Windows Server 2012 R2. It will configure the services and registry keys related to Windows Update for default settings as well as clean up files related to Windows Update in addition to BITS related data.

Due to some limitations of the cmdlets available in PowerShell, the script calls several legacy utilities like wusa.exe, sc.exe, netsh.exe, and others.
