Microsoft released the cumulative update KB3110329 to Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, and Windows Vista users two weeks ago, as a part of this year’s first patch Tuesday. KB3110329 is a security update, which means that it eliminates some vulnerabilities of the system, and improves the overall stability. But, even though it improved system’s security, it also caused a lot of trouble to users who obtained it.

Cumulative Update KB3110329 Reported Problems

One of the most common issues of cumulative updates is the problem with installing, and it seems that it also hit the KB3110329. Namely, a lot of users are complaining on Microsoft’s forums, as Bogdan Popa from Softpedia first pointed out, that they’re not even able to download and install the update.

“I have been unable to install windows update kb3110329 received 1/12/16.  Any ideas?”

“Windows 7 update kb3110329 fails with code 800705b4, I have tried 8 or 10 times, even downloadig and it still fails. Help”

Luckily, users managed to find the solution for this problem by themselves. All you need to do, to fix this issue, is to run the WUReset script. We already told you about this useful tool, so if you’re also facing the problem with obtaining the cumulative update KB3110329, check out this article, to find out how to run the WUReset script on your computer.

The oinstallation problem is the main issue that Windows 7 users faced, but those who still use Windows Vista have different problems. Users are complaining on Microsoft Community forums that the update KB3110329 causes the problem with sound in Windows Vista, upon its installation.

” The sound was not working after installing windows update KB3110329 in Window Vista. For the time being, I can only exclude this update. Please let me know if there is a solution. Thanks.”

At the moment, there’s no confirmed fix for this issue, but you can try some of the fixes from our article about sound issues in Windows 10, maybe they’ll work on Windows Vista, as well.

Late cumulative updates appear to be troublesome, as users also had a lot of problems with the KB3124262 update. So, Microsoft definitely should focus on fixing these issues, because cumulative updates are released on the regular basis, and if every update brings problems with itself, the using experience of Windows 10 could be seriously damaged.

  • better buy a Mac. Windows always has issues and because Microsoft refuses to support their users, then why be a user of MSN products? terrible shame that MSN makes so many billions on a product that FAILS.

  • I can confirm that running the WUReset script does NOT fix the issue with KB3110329 failing to install on Windows 7. I still get the following error trying to install it:

    “Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x80073712: Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3110329).”
