[IMPORTANT] Install error - 0x80073701

Occasional Contributor

Hello, I'm currently on Windows 11 (Dev Channel, Windows Insider) and I have an error during the installation of the new update (10.0.22000.120). I followed steps on the twitter of Windows Insider but unfortunately it still don't work. I executed SFC, DISM and tried to reset the Windows Update component (but there's a message: Directory.Management.ressources.dll - The system cannot find the path specified.)


Here's the images of the messages (Windows Update component reset)

Yes i fixed my issue. Reset -> Cloud download -> keep files. Then it should update.


Does reset mean I will lose all my app's data and my downloaded stuff in D drive ??

Yes you'll lose your apps but not files
from the cloud which windows will be installed?
10 or 11??
Chill, it'll be a fresh version of your version of Windows 11.
I have installed ISO from uudump and my error went without losing data and files.
Ok, glad to hear that.
