Windows Update Error 80070659 – Server 2012 RDS host


Windows Server 2012 R2

Roles installed

  • File and Storage Services
  • IIS
  • Print Services
  • Remote Desktop Services


I was trying to install a bunch of pending Security Updates to a Windows Server 2012 RDS Host, Windows patches were successful but when trying to install the Microsoft Office patches i received a failure code 80070659


You will find the following registry keys set to 1 changing them to 0 allowed me to install the patches successfully

  • HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Install\DisableMSI
  • HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Install\DisablePatch
