If when you run the built-in Windows 11/10 DISM tool, you receive error message codes like 87, 112, 11, 50, 3, 87,1726, 1392, 1393, 1910, etc, then these general troubleshooting suggestions may help you fix the problem. The error code may be accompanied by a message :
- If the accompanying message is – The restore health option is not recognized in this context, or An error occurred while processing the command, it could indicate that the DISM command you uses is not supported by the operating system version.
- If the accompanying message is – The add-package option is unknown, it could indicate that the option you use is not supported by the operating system version.
If a Windows image becomes unserviceable, you can use the Deployment Imaging and Servicing Management (DISM) tool to update the files and correct the problem. In the case of system inconsistencies and corruptions, corrupted Windows Update files, etc., you can run the DISM tool by using the Cleanup-Image functionality along with the available switches.
But if the effort fails, you may need to find out why this happened. Such errors are usually faced when you use the
/restorehealth parameter – but could appear when you use other parameters as well.
