I bought a new Alienware and they won't provide support for Windows Update (why should they, really). I go and try to run the IE 10 update like so:

enter image description here

And, it hangs a bit on the screen above. Then, it shows this error:

enter image description here

How can I install IE 10? I already tried installing it directly, but that doesn't work either?

Thanks for your help.

Before I suggest simply calling Microsoft free support, I suggest you run sfc /scannow lets make sure your system image is 100% stable. In the mean time please provide system configuration information IE10 is not supported on all system configurations. –  Ramhound May 11 '13 at 23:47
    
look for a file called IE10_main.log, open it and look for error messages. If you're unsure, upload the file. –  magicandre1981 May 12 '13 at 5:24
    
@Ramhound Good news, no integrity violations. Microsoft has free support? Where can I find that? –  user1477388 May 12 '13 at 10:50
    
@magicandre1981 I found the log file in C:\Windows and it has a warning 00:02.496: WARNING: Checking version for C:\Windows\System32\api-ms-win-downlevel-user32-l1-1-0.dll.

I had the exact same error. 6 hours later I'm finally able to install IE 10. It turns out there are some corrupt downloaded packages and IE 10 cannot install. pkgmgr.exe is a utility to manage these packages.

This is what you need to do. (not documented anywhere of course) Run a DOS COMMAND window (CMD) as admin and type the following commands:

pkgmgr /UP:Microsoft-Windows-IE-Hyphenation-Parent-Package-English~31bf3856ad364e35~~~10.2.9200.16437

pkgmgr /UP:Microsoft-Windows-IE-Spelling-Parent-Package-English~31bf3856ad364e35~~~10.2.9200.16437

And you're going to run this on any version you find lower than the one you're trying to install (from what I see "10.2.9200.16437") and that you find here C:\Windows\servicing\Packages. These are the files that are mainly causing the issue. For example:

pkgmgr /UP:pkgmgr /up:Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-Package-TopLevel~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~8.0.7601.17514

You would replace 8.0.7601.17514 with whatever file names you find on the packages folder I mentioned above.

Thanks for your answer, but sadly, I am not sure I understand "run this on any version you find lower than the one you're trying to install." Can't I just uninstall everything related to IE 10 and reinstall? Or, can I reinstall Windows 7 or upgrade to Windows 8 and would that fix it? Just looking for the easiest way out of this... :) –  user1477388 Jun 18 '13 at 12:14

Honestly, the easiest thing is to format the C: drive and just re-install Windows. Depending on the amount of software, settings, files and data that you have, it may not be the fastest way, however. I meant, look for files with this name "Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-Package-TopLevel~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~" in the folder in bold and run the pkgmgr command on those files. You need to remove any InternetExplorer packages older than the one you're trying to install. I'm still perplexed at why Microsoft did not include this in their installation logic. It's their own OS!!! –  Jose Ortiz Jun 18 '13 at 14:32
    
I am amazed that it's this hard to install IE 10, too! I just wish I understood what you meant so I could do it... I don't want to have to reinstall my OS and lose all my stuff. How many files would I have to run the command on? Just the two that you mentioned? Thanks for your help. –  user1477388 Jun 18 '13 at 15:06

In addition to running it on those two files, just go to c:\windows\Servicing\Packages, list files (command DIR) with this pattern: Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-Package-TopLevel~* and run the pkgmgr command on the files that you find that are less than version 10. The version is where you see the * on the file. What's happened is that Windows Update tried to install/update IE 8, 9 or 10 and got stuck and corrupted. –  Jose Ortiz Jun 18 '13 at 16:05
    
Thanks, Jose. I think I understand well enough to give it a shot now. –  user1477388 Jun 18 '13 at 16:31

I followed Jose Ortiz's instructions and successfully got rid of IE10 upgrade failure code 9c59, however, one correction to Jose's instructions, not only I had to pkgmgr /UP: on the lower versions of Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-Package-TopLevel~* in C:\Windows\servicing\Packages but also higher version 10 ones as well. then the IE10 upgrade becomes successful

also one side effect to share, once I uninstalled the the lower versions of Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-Package-TopLevel~, I was asked to restart the system, after that my IE9 dropped down to IE8. then I decided to remove the higher versions of Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-Package-TopLevel~ as well, try IE10 installation one more time then it's successful

Thanks for posting. The instructions were too difficult for me to follow... I don't want to have to go through each file and do all that. I am disappointed Microsoft hasn't fixed this yet. –  user1477388 Sep 6 '13 at 14:24

0x80092004 = CRYPT_E_NOT_FOUND.

//
// MessageId: CRYPT_E_NOT_FOUND
//
// MessageText:
//
// Cannot find object or property.
//
#define CRYPT_E_NOT_FOUND                _HRESULT_TYPEDEF_(0x80092004L)

To fix this, run the System Update Readiness Tool (KB947821):

https://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821/en-us

Reboot and try again to install the IE10.

also upload the checkSur.log from the CBS folder. –  magicandre1981 May 13 '13 at 4:00

ok, you already have some IE10 files on the HDD. If you have a second PC with Ie10 and Win7, copy the 2 damaged files into the servicing folder. technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee619779%28WS.10%29.aspx –  magicandre1981 May 14 '13 at 4:07

do you see some IE10 updates in Control panel->Program & Features? Try to remove them. You can also try to expand the IE10 installer (/x switch) copy the MSU files to \Windows\CheckSUR\packages and checksur again: blogs.technet.com/b/joscon/archive/2010/05/26/… –  magicandre1981 May 16 '13 at 4:32

try the second part of my last comment. Extract the MSU fiel from the IE10 setup with the /X switch, copy them to the path I mentioned and run checksur again. –  magicandre1981 May 18 '13 at 4:28

I spent over a day trying to resolve the Code 9C59 error I kept getting while trying to upgrade IE 9 to 10 on a Windows 7 system. Jose Ortiz's posting finally allowed me to fix the problem with the pkgmgr command. For the laptop on which I encountered the problem, the following commands fixed the problem allowing me to successfully complete the upgrade:

pkgmgr /UP:Microsoft-Windows-IE-Hyphenation-Parent-Package-English~31bf3856ad364e35~~~10.2.9200.16437

pkgmgr /UP:Microsoft-Windows-IE-Spelling-Parent-Package-English~31bf3856ad364e35~~~10.2.9200.16437

pkgmgr /UP:Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-Package-TopLevel~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~10.2.9200.16521

pkgmgr /UP:Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-Package-TopLevel~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~9.4.8112.16421

I tried many other suggestions I found elsewhere before finally being able to fix the problem with the solution I found here. I've posted all the error messages I found in log files, such as the CheckSUR.log and Windows System event log for those who may also have found issues reported with spelling and hyphenation files in the CheckSUR.log file after running the System Update Readiness Tool.

Thanks for your post. I am still just going to try to wait until they release something. As expensive as Windows 7 was, I shouldn't have to do this to get their shitty software to work! –  user1477388 Oct 28 '13 at 12:33

Here is the solution that finally worked for me: Install IE 11! Haha take that IE 10!
