    0x800736B1 -2147010895 Error_SXS_Cant_gen_Actctx

    This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. The referenced assembly is not installed on your system.

    Either the update server is not recognizing the existence of WinSxS due to a communication issue or WinSxS is not present or corrupted. The issue may be related to antivirus or security software.
    Please see if something at Windows 7 or Vista Updates Fail To Install helps you. Try disabling your anti-virus and see if it works.

    Also create a system restore point first and see if Fix WU Utility or some links there, help you.

    Or check out Microsoft Fix It to reset Windows Updates.

    Its going to be shot in the dark, but hope something helps!

    Thanks for this.

    I was experiencing Error Code 800736B3 from Windows Update on a fresh install of Windows 7 x32 and this info solved my problem.
