    Try to reset Windows Components and uninstall again


    If still no help, try these steps:

    Boot into WinRE command prompt

    List the packages in a pending state:

    x:\windows\system32\dism.exe /image:<drive letter for windows directory> /Get-Packages >> <path to text file>

    Example: x:\windows\system32\dism.exe /image:c:\ /Get-Packages >> c:\temp\packages.txt

    Open the text file where you piped get-packages. If you see any install pending patches, run remove-package for each package name:

    dism.exe /image:<drive letter for windows directory> /remove-package /packagename:<package name>

    Example: x:\windows\system32\dism.exe /image:c:\ /remove-package /packagename:Package_for_KB4014329~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~
