ThinkPad Configuration Update Stalls on R51e

I am trying to get the ThinkPad Configuration Update installed. Overall progress goes to 99%, then backtracks to 98%, then up to 99% again, and so forth.

 

I've tried this repeatedly in the course of several days.

 

I've tried it as a directly downloaded-and-installed process.

 

I've tried it as a deferred update installation.

 

Always the same results.

 

I've searched here. I've searched on Google. I've found no help.

 

Can you help, please?

 

Thanks.

RESOLVED: ThinkPad Configuration Update Stalls on R51e

I uninstalled Zone Alarm.

 

Tried the ThinkVantage update again.

 

And it worked on the first try! Smiley Happy

 

I also noted this on my blog.

 

Hopefully this information helps somebody else.

 

Thank you to everyone who read my post here at the Lenovo Community, even if you were unable to help!

 

Gratefully,

Mark

Re: RESOLVED: ThinkPad Configuration Update Stalls on R51e

Hello Mark, and welcome to the Forum!

 

Thanks for coming back and telling us how you resolved your issue. Glad to hear, as I love those classic R51's, and have a few in my own collection.Smiley Happy  I was one of those who read your original post. You didn't immediately mention you had a firewall. Those are indeed a common culprit in such situations. Once again, glad your R51e is still going strong!

Thank you, Anastasios!

 

Since you're familiar with the R51e, perhaps you can help me with my new problem:

 

Removing DVD Drive

 

Thanks,
