KB2943357 is a .NET Framework 3.5.1 security fix.

".In Server,there id only one .net file. " -  I don't understand ... You say: "First at all, I install MSXML.XX , .NET file and then Silverlight." . I'd like to know what you are installing

"I cannot install the patch with .msu."  - can you install another update with .msu successfully? Or NO update with .msu extension works?

Ok, sorry, from your original post it sounded like its a single patch that fails.

1. Open an elevated command prompt and try to rename CBS.log:
ren %WinDir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log %WinDir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log.20161117

Open in new window

If it fails thats ok.

2. run
sfc /scannow

Open in new window


In case it shows any problem please attach %WinDir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log to your next message

3. run
chkdsk c: /f 

Open in new window

it will tell you it can't check the system volume. Press Y and restart
Let chkdsk finish during the boot

If all .msu WIndows Updates fail this is likely a problem with the component store. First step is to check with sfc /scannow and to make sure there is no NTFS problem, a chkdsk

Next step is: please download and run the System Update Readiness Tool for Windows Server 2008 R2  https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/details.aspx?id=14668

Its quite big and runs for a while.
Again, if possible, rename CBS.log before running it. Upload CBS.log here after  System Update Readiness Tool finishes.

The Winows update readiness tool was useless for me because the extension was .msu.

At last, by the reasons of 2147549183 "Catastrophic failure,i found the soulution.

It silved.
