Error code 0x80073712 usually indicates a file or component missing or corrupted during the installation process. Here are some additional troubleshooting steps you can try: 1.Run the System File Checker (SFC) and Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tools to repair any corrupted system files. Open Command Prompt as an administrator and type the following commands: Into your command prompt run: -sfc /scannow - dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth 2. Check if there are any pending updates in Windows Update. Sometimes, an update may get stuck, and installing the pending updates can fix the issue. 3. Check if any third-party software or antivirus is blocking the installation process. Disable any third-party software temporarily and try installing the update again. 4. Create a new user account and try installing the update from that account. 5. If none of the above methods work, you may need to perform a clean installation of Windows 11. However, make sure to backup your important files and data before performing a clean install.

Hi @towniee 

Restoring the computer to its initial state - this should fix this error, of course, I do not propose a clean installation, only restore .
