    Cause

     

    Error 2147942432 indicates that a required resource is already in use by another process. This usually happens when an anti virus application is trying to scan the .cab file at the same time Shavlik Patch is trying to sign it.

     

    Resolution

     

    Add an antivirus exclusion for the content directory that Shavlik Patch stores update packages in. This is usually something like "C:\WSUS\UpdateServicesPackages" or "C:\WSUS\WsusContent\UpdateServicesPackages"
