  • Hi N_V_P,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    Let's see the error message as below:

    >>Applying execute package: Windows81_x64, action: Install, path: C:\ProgramData\Package Cache\3ACBF3890FC9C8A6F3D2155ECF106028E5F55164\packages\Patch\x64\Windows8.1-KB2999226-x64.msu

    >>Error 0x80240017: Failed to configure per-machine MSU package.

    The above indicates that your OS failed to install the required update Windows8.1-KB2999226-x64.msu, you can install it by extracting that update to a folder, and execute the specific cmdlet.

    Please take a look at the following link:

    Solution of Soman Dubey:

    1. Find the Windows8.1-KB2999226-x64.msu from the folder C:\ProgramData\Package Cache\3ACBF3890FC9C8A6F3D2155ECF106028E5F55164\packages\Patch\x64

    2. Create a folder XXXX in that and execute following commands from Admin command prompt

    3. wusa.exe Windows8.1-KB2999226-x64.msu /extract:XXXX

    4. DISM.exe /Online /Add-Package /PackagePath:XXXX\Windows8.1-KB2999226-x64.cab

    5. vc_redist.x64.exe /repair (Also you could repair all the VC++ Redistributables from Control Panel)

    If any problem persists, please feel free to tell me, I will help you for further analyze.
