How to fix wstorvsc.inf so I can install my service pack?
Posted on 2012-03-20
I'm trying to install the service pack 1 onto a Windows 7 Ultimate x64 computer. In the CBS.log it shows it failing with:

I solved previous errors (have been trying to get the damn thing to work for a bit now!) by finding the associated hotfix and uninstalling it - however this time (with wstorvsc.inf) there appears to have been no update since the original windows installation.
Anybody know how to please the installer so we can keep going? I've tried comparing the wstorvsc.inf to file listed above it that are not a problem but I cannot see a place where it should be residing and isn't.
Telling me to do an in-place upgrade is not an answer. I'm wanting to know how to deal with this specific error.
