JSI Tip 3280. 'Failed to install catalog files' when applying Windows 2000 Service Pack 1?


When you install Service Pack 1, by using update.exe or sp1network.exe, you receive:

Service Pack Setup Error 
Failed to install catalog files 
OK
or the %SystemRoot%\Svcpack.log file may contain:
Service Pack started with following command line:
***
Copied file: c:\winnt\system32\spmsg.dll
***
Failed to install catalog files. 
***
If you have disallowed verification of catalog files, by setting option 10 of the Software Publishing State Key Values to TRUE, you need to set it to FALSE.

Open a CMD prompt and type setreg. This will return:

Software Publishing State Key Values (0x22a00):
   1) Trust the Test Root........................... FALSE
   2) Use expiration date on certificates........... TRUE
   3) Check the revocation list..................... FALSE
   4) Offline revocation server OK (Individual)..... FALSE
   5) Offline revocation server OK (Commercial)..... TRUE
   6) Java offline revocation server OK (Individual) FALSE
   7) Java offline revocation server OK (Commercial) TRUE
   8) Invalidate version 1 signed objects........... FALSE
   9) Check the revocation list on Time Stamp Signer FALSE
  10) Only trust items found in the Trust DB........ TRUE
Type setreg 10 FALSE to resolve the problem.

Install Service Pack 1.
