clip_image002Upgrade stops responding (hangs) at 62% when you upgrade to Windows 7

This Fix it Solution automates setting a system variable to ignore the IphlpsvcMigPlugin.ddd plug-in on Windows Vista which enables the update to occur successfully from Windows Vista to Windows 7.

  • Is this safe to apply blanketly before an upgrade? I do not want to start the process to only find that it hangs.

    I am helping at an install fest on campus. I want things to go well.

    See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/975253/en-us which cleary states to *NOT* use the "resolution" until you'll find any hints related to a failing IphlpsvcMigPlugin in the setupact.log

  • Thanks for Info, I was struggling with this problem since last 2 days.

  • My computer will not rollback to Vista. It gives the option to rollback but if you click on it it just reboots the same as clicking on Windows 7. I have tried sevearl suggestions from many forums but none have worked. I can download your fix toa flash drive but not sure how I could apply it.

  • Tech told us it was memory compatibility issue.

  • Hi,

    I am running Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1.

    I am on a small home-based LAN, my internet connection going through a DSL router.

    My computer won't go for updates nor will it ping host names via command line interface, but my internet browser is working.

    From cmd:

    Can send/receive ping packets to IPs ofcomputers on LAN.

    Can send/receive ping packets to IP of default gateway/DNS server

    Can send/receive ping packets to external website IP.

    Can-NOT send/receive internal/external host NAMES.

    This leads me to believe it is a DNS problem.

    Now, a few Services won't run. Below are the services and the error messages I get from Services and from CMD..

    Automatic Update

    From Services:

    Could not start the Automatic Updates service on Local Computer.

    Error 0x8007277a: The requested service provider could not be loaded or initialised.

    From cmd:

    System error 10106 has occurred.

    The requested service provider could not be loaded or initialized.

    Background Intelligent Transfer System

    From Services:

    Windows could not start the Background Intelligent Transfer Service on Local Computer. FOr more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code -2147014790.

    From Event Viewer:

    The Background Intelligent Transfer Service service terminated with service-specific error 2147952506 (0x8007277A).

    From cmd:

    A service specific error occurred: 2147952506.

    IPSEC Services

    From Services:

    Could not start the IPSEC Services service on Local COmputer.

    Error 10106: The requested service provider could not be loaded or initialised.

    From cmd:

    System error 10106 has occurred.

    Net Logon

    From Services:

    Could not start the Net Logon service on Local Computer.

    Error 10106: The requested service provider could not be loaded or initialized.

    From cmd:

    System error 10106 has occurred.

    Also, I tried running System integrity Check and Repair 'SFC', but it won't run. :(

    Next, I tried installing Microsoft Fixit tool from the Microsoft website, it wouldn't install.

    Now, I would guess that these programs aren't running because of this basic DNS problem.

    I would very grateful if anyone helps resolve this problem. I want to install the latest updates for my OS.

    Thank you,

    Austin
