Hi there,
from yesterday afternoon, we are experiencing a problem on AppVeyor that we are not able to build due to an error in 'C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\lib\KB2919355\tools\ChocolateyInstall.ps1'

The build URL which it fails is as follows:

The detailed build is as follows:

    Update for community: previous version of php package helped, e.g. cinst php --version 7.0.9 instead of - cinst php.

    I've seen this occasionally in Chocolatey/Boxstarter if the Windows Update Service is disabled. The first KB that was in the dependencies (kb2919442) tried to install but failed probably due to the wusa.exe (Windows Update) service not running. Does the older version require the same update?

    Better still cinst -y php -i which ignores the dependencies and allows you to download the latest version.

    This is getting annoying..
    Although ignore dependencies works in some versions of the php package, it brings another issue for the latest one (, which added another dependency - chocolatey-core.extension. If we install with -i, we will be missing chocolatey-core.extension, so the installation will fail with

    OK, we've found what was causing php package installation to fail - disabled Windows update service.

    Working way to install php Chocolatey package with dependencies:

    - ps: Set-Service wuauserv -StartupType Manual
    - cinst -y php
