    • (August 27, 2013) Microsoft has released an update to KB947821. This update is designed to fix errors that occur when you use Windows Update, install and run the System Update Readiness Tool. The tool scans for inconsistencies on your computer and fixes them as its being installed.
    • Important: Although it typically takes less than 15 minutes to run the scan, it might take much longer on some computers. Even if the progress bar seems to stop, the scan is still running, so don't cancel the process. You can use the System Update Readiness Tool on computers that are running Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Vista.
