I'm running Windows 8.1 and I get the following error when I try to repair my system:

    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth /logpath:D:\Downloads\dismlog.txt

Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
Version: 6.3.9600.17031

Image Version: 6.3.9600.17031


Error: 14098

The component store has been corrupted.

The DISM log file can be found at D:\Downloads\dismlog.txt

The relevant portion of the log is:

2015-04-03 14:19:55, Info                  DISM   DISM Package Manager: PID=6660 TID=7088  Error in operation: (null) (CBS HRESULT=0x80073712) - CCbsConUIHandler::Error

There's a lot of information in the CBS log but I'm not sure what is relevant. Here is the CBS log.

A repair based on booting the USB image of Windows 8.1 downloaded from MS failed. Windows update failed. It seems like I should be able to fix the component store using the image, but I'm not sure how to go about doing this.

  • /scanhealth only scans, you need to run /RestoreHealth Apr 4, 2015 at 5:45
  • It returns the same error. Apr 5, 2015 at 17:42

It appears as though the syntax for PowerShell is the following:

Repair-WindowsImage -Online -RestoreHealth -Source G:\sources\install.wim:1

Note that I still get an error back about corruption, but this is what I was looking for. The iso download from Microsoft didn't have a wim file, but I did use a free program to convert install.esd to install.wim.
