  1. DISM and SFC not working.


    Hey, everybody. I can't run DISM or SFC on my computer.

    When I run Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth, it says this:

    Code: Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool Version: 10.0.16299.15 Image Version: 10.0.16299.64 Error: 216 This version of %1 is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information and then contact the software publisher. The DISM log file can be found at C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log[/quote] When I run sfc /scannow, it says this.

    Code: Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service.[/quote] I looked online and I couldn't find any solution on how to fix this. Can you please tell me how to fix this?

    Please don't tell me to reformat my computer, buy a new computer, perform a clean boot, refresh my computer, or anything that causes me to lose any of my data.

    I also attached my dism.log file.

    :)

    How to get damn DISM to work?

    Thx guys, I'll compress this data into a blog post. For all the so called guides I've read, not a single one mentioned it has to be WIM file (some listed even ESD which clearly doesn't work) or that certain ISO images don't work with DISM.

    After I've done DISM thingie, SFC also managed to repair stuff. Which is what I've needed here.

    Can't get SFC and DISM to work anymore on Win10

    Ok, can someone help me out because this crap is starting to piss me off. There was once a time when you could simply run SFC and DISM to check Windows files integrity and if there were any problems found with the local files, Windows repaired it automatically. The reason why I want to run this is because I'm getting stupendously huge amount of errors and warnings in Event Viewer, but I don't want to run refresh because it'll mess up tons of apps.

    Commands I used:
    sfc /scannow
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Fast forward few years and we now have glorious Windows 10. Trying to run the same tools, they find errors but stubbornly refuse to fix ANYTHING. What's the god damn point of it then?

    Sfc finds issues but can't repair them and DISM constantly bitches how it can't find the source. All this used to work directly in Windows 7, but in Win 10, nothing. This was one of the best features to get OS back in good state and they go and ruin it. Because Microsoft!

    I've checked this thread:
    https://social.technet.microsoft.co...sfc-failed-to-repair?forum=win10itprohardware

    Nothing worked. And they keep mentioning install.wim where my Windows image downloaded from Microsoft itself! only carries install.esd which I can't seem to use with anything.

    I've also tried this tool:
    CodePlex Archive

    Which again wants .wim file and refuses to work with esd.

    DISM and SFC not working.

    How to get damn DISM to work?

    you need to run DISM first before running SFC
    SFC query's the local component stores to make repairs
    DISM is targeted for rebuilding the component stores and a offline image the 'live' section is still handled by SFC in some cases
    except on windows 8.1 and up because they changed it
    but only for certain files and only if x part of the store is corrupt
    so yea pretty confusing eh
