I'm configuring a "Windows Embedded Standard 7" install image, for an embedded application. Because of storage limits, "Internet Explorer 8 Browser" is not installed in the image, but "Internet Explorer 8 Engine and Display" and "Internet Explorer 8 Foundation" are.
After a fresh installation of the image, everything is working perfect. I can run inetcpl.cpl and the "Internet Properties" window opens. If I run services.msc the "Services" window opens on the "Extended" tab, and I can see all the services with an description to the left.
However, after installing "Security Update for Internet Explorer 8 for Windows Embedded Standard 7 (KB2847204)", I can suddenly not open the "Internet Properties" window anymore, if I run inetcpl.cpl nothing happens. When I open the "Services" window, the "Extended" tab is completely empty and if I click on the "Standard" tab the following error message is shown:
Unable to download. Unable to open this Internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later
I can then uninstall KB2847204 and everything works perfect, like before.
So far I have tried to run the sfc /scannow command but that did not work.
As I'm not normally working on the Windows platform, I need advice on how to debug this problem..
Thanks in advance.
