Tip of the Day: CBS Servicing States Chart – Refresher


Ever find yourself lost in the CBS log? It’s likely that if you’ve opened the CBS.log in Windows\Logs, you have. Don’t know what the value in the registry means? Now you can!

Here are the definitions of ApplicableState and CurrentState.  In a CBS log, they will be in decimal, but they will show up as hex in the registry.

Cached state location:  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing\ApplicabilityEvaluationCache\<package name>

Package location:  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing\Packages\<package name>
