MBSA 2.2 cannot find cab files on Windows 7 locally

February 15, 2012 at 10:04:42
Specs: Windows 7
I have installed all the MBSA 2.2 cab files in the %SystemDrive%\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\MBSA\Cache location on Windows 7 and when I scan the local computer, MBSA gives me no cab files found error. I have no issues on Vista, Window Servers, & XP only Windows 7.

You may have put the cab files in the wrong place. On Windows 7 you may have to put them in a different place compared to other versions of Windows. Read the support articles on Microsoft's website.

The files are not in the wrong place. I am having the same issue on Win7 as well. Even if I specify the location of the cabfile for the mbsacli using /catalog or /cabpath, it still cannot load the cab file.

The usual recommendation to read in the faq why I can't run mbsa on Windows 2000 with Service Pack 3 does not resolve the issue either.
