Cause: This can be caused by a problem with WMI.


Resolution: To resolve this issue follow the steps below:


1. Open a CMD prompt and navigate to the “C:\Windows\System32\Wbem” folder.


2. Run the following command:


for /f %s in (‘dir /b *.mof *.mfl’) do mofcomp %s
for /f %s in (‘dir /b /s *.dll’) do regsvr32 /s %s


3. Try installing the SP1 upgrade again.


Usually this is all it takes and you’re good to go.
