More Information

This update releases a new version of the cmitrust.dll file that is stored in the %windir%\system32\AdvancedInstallers directory. For Windows 8.1 and Windows 8 client operating systems, this file is present to keep versioning consistent between the version in the \AdvancedInstallers directory and the version that is held in the component store %windir%\winsxs. In Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 2008 R2 SP1, in addition to keeping versioning consistent, this version of the binary also contains a fix to update installation failure on RODCs. 

This issue also occurs in Windows 8.1 and Windows 8-based operating systems. You can install the following servicing stack updates to resolve the issue:
