Way 3: Check If a Prerequisite Update Is Missing

There is another thing you should do which is to check if a prerequisite update is missing. According to Microsoft, some updates need a prerequisite update before they can be applied to a system. Or else, Windows Update Standalone Installer not applicable will appear.

For instance, if the error message happens on Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2, you have to install the April 2014 update KB 2919355 as a prerequisite and one or more pre-requisite servicing updates (KB 2919442 and KB 3173424). 

To check whether you have installed these prerequisite updates, you can run the following PowerShell command: 

get-hotfix KB3173424,KB2919355,KB2919442
