Ran SFC /Scannow, it completed with a message that "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violation".
Downloaded and tried installing the System Update Readiness tool but it failed to install.
Stopped Windows Update service and renamed Software Distribution folder, tried again but no good.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi just logged into the forum and hope someone can help. I have tried to install this update six times today (07/05/12) after it was flagged as an important update this morning. Looking at my update history it also failed to instal on the 18th October last year but it has not bothered me since and i have not noticed it until now. Of the seven attempts I had the following error codes from earliest to latest : 800B0100, 80246007, 80010108, 8024200D, 8024200D, 8024200D, 8024200D. I have followed advice from MS running KB947821 and FIX IT also disabled my Norton 360 firewalls and auto protect but to no avail. If anyone can help please bear in mind I am not a techie so will need to be told what to do fully. I have read advice on editting the registry but I do not go there! There be dragons!! Also I do not have a DVD with Windows 7 as it was not supplied with my PC and I don't want to restore my computer and lose all my installed software. Any help would be much appreciated. Should I just hide the update and ignore it or will that come back and bite me? Thanks in anticipation.

Hi

I have several updates(currently 3 but it was 5 last time I tried) that fail.
They seem to download alright, but on installation the progress bar takes a few leaps
to the end, and it's all fails. I stopped updating for a week or so, and today, I was able
to successfully apply 14 out of the 17 updates that were available. So now it's just these
3 for some reason.

Those are:

Important updates
Update for Windows 7 for x64-based System(KB3040272)
Update for Windows 7 for x64-based System(KB3065979)
Optional
Update for Windows 7 for x64-based System(KB3064209)


Here's the info:
OS is Windows 7 Home premium(64bit)
The error code I am given is: 8024200D
I have downloaded and run the SURT tool.
I have also several times run the sfc /scannow cmd.
I repeatedly tried to update at every stage, with no luck.
The CBS.zip is attached.

Running the automatic troubleshooter from the microsoft site reports the following
as a Windows update error and says it couldn't fix it:

InformationalError Report
RootCause: RC_DataStore
ErrorCode: 0x800F081F

As you can see, the error code there is a different one than the one I get directly from
the failed Windows update.

Any help/suggestions much appreciated.

A:Some updates won't install Error Code: 8024200D

I searched for the updates in question online, and downloaded and installed them manually. I then checked for new updates(after a reboot), and windows update successfully downloaded and installed all by itself. It seems my troubles are a thing of yesterday. Hooray! Still though, I don't get why this happened in the first place ... oh well.

I have checked the Microsoft help page, multiple other people seem to have the same or a similar problem. Some of them have had success in solving it, but their solutions do not work for me. The service pack downloads fine, but fails when installing, giving me the error code 8024200D (which I have looked up, and the answers there did not help.) I have run the system update readiness tool, which did not find anything out of the ordinary, and I have also done the SFC scan, which also did not find anything out of the ordinary.

I have some suspicions that it might be because I have Windows N Ultimate edition, but I am not sure. The screenshot is from viewing the details of the failed update on the "view update history" screen in Windows Update. It doesn't really say anything that I have not already said. I am completely puzzled here.

I guess I COULD make a backup and install regular Windows 7 to fix the issue (even if it isn't compatibility, a clean install might fix it), but I would like to avoid that if possible. Thank you in advance, and if you need any more information to help me, don't be afraid to ask.

Hi Joss and welcome to Sevenforums!

I looked at your files and it seems that your update is failing possibly because of a missing system file "usbcir.sys"

usbcir.sys is a driver connected to Infrared eHome. I would try updating or installing this driver and then see if your problem is fixed.

Also, the 8024200D error could indicate that the Update wasn't completely downloaded or installed. If the driver is not the problem, redownload the update and try to update. I would try this after a reboot, just to be thorough.

Hello all!

This is my first post to this forum and, I must say, after perusing a few posts I'm excited to post my question. It looks like this is a great community.

I recently reformatted my computer due to intermittent crashes during resource intensive application sessions. The crashes have continued with decreased frequency (and make me suspect my PSU). However, my computer crashed during one of the first lengthy rounds of update installations after the reformat and I suspect that crash may have damaged a Windows Update installation. Since then I have always had an "updates available" prompt and the update fails each time it tries to run.

I think I have narrowed it down to a single update that is not correctly installing. I think this poster was encountering the same issue, but it seemed wise to follow the forum recommendation not not try solutions posted for others.

Per the forum guidelines here are the details of my problem:

1) Used SURT and got the attached SURT results.
2) Ran SFC and got the attached results.
3) Windows Update returns error code 80246007 for file KB2836502 (see attached).
4) The compressed CBS log folder was too larger to attach to the post. You can get it here.

Any and all help is much appreciated!!

Hi there,

I am having problems with my Vista 64 bit OS. it has service pack 1 installed and I had to wipe the hard drive on New Years eve so I was starting from scratch.

I shut it down on the 1st of Jan with automatic updates and when I came back to it the next morning it was still configuring updates.

I shut it down eventually and restarted it from a restore point and went about finding the problem in the updates. The error is 8024200D with the code of kb905866.

Install this update for Windows Mail to revise the definition files that are used to detect e-mail messages that should be considered junk e-mail or that may contain phishing content. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer.




I googled it and I got some suggestions for the error but it didn't correspond with the code for e.g.. Kb905866 Failed, Error Code 80070490 In Vista Update .

That code usually means that updates were not completed. With this any any updates, do not let them install automatically. Install a few at a time manually.
In this situation, download a few at a time, excluding the problem update. I would set that update to hide (not install) as it may cause you further problems.

Excuses me for having to ask you guys here for help as i have run out of option with the errors that I am now getting on my Windows 8 PC.
Being a noob at this, I have sort of run out of options and now i believe it best for me to ask this forum for help.
About 2 months ago I noticed 2 issues with my systems that is now becoming very annoying to me.
Firstly with my Internet Explore I am getting missing images with the error ?Internet Explorer can not display the page being the first. ( Also Google Chrome is missing the images as well to some web site, with regards to adds mainly )
I have tried a few options that where suggested on the internet that I have been researching but nothing has helped.
The second error I am getting is with the updates. Updates are failing to install.
I get the error Code 8024200D Windows say it ran into aproblem. I can?t seem to proceed any further!
Just wondering, as this has just recently happened.
Are these 2 issues related?
My PC is a HP Compaq 8000 Elite series and it original comewith Windows 7 already installed.
I have paid for an upgrade to Windows 8 more than a year agoand I have never had any issue what?s so ever until now. Is this a simple fix, or is it a sign to something more serious.

I have been unable to install Windows updates since mid-December, and now have some 11 outstanding.

My machine is a 5 year old Acer Aspire M3910 64 bit Intel Core i3 CPU 540 @3.07GHz with 8GB RAM running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1.

I have downloaded and installed the System Update Readiness Tool from the Microsoft site. However the CBS.zip file generated from the CBS file produced by running this tool is some 12 MB in size and falls foul of the 8MB limit imposed by the forum, and I cannot attach it. How do I get over this?

I have also run SFC /SCANNOW, but it identified no issues.

Help to resolve this updating error would be very much appreciated.

Thank you in advance!

See my CBS logs in attachment (divided into 3 files due to big size )

Good Afternoon,

I am also having problems installing updates with the error code 80070308.

I have spent this afternoon reading the other posts and following the Windows Update Posting Instructions thread so hopefully I've gathered has much info as I can.

I downloaded and ran the System Update Readiness Tool. Once the installation was complete I tried to reinstall the updates. This resulted in the successful installation of: Hotfix for Windows (KB947821) but the failed installation of the other 9 updates as before.

Attachment 325390

And I received the following error code.

Attachment 325391

I then carried out the sfc/scannow which all came back OK.

Attachment 325392

I have saved the logs as a zip file but its too big for me to upload (12.5MB)? Any suggestions?

I hope I have not missed anything out. But please bear with me if I have.

Any help/advice would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Since 10/07/2014 I am having serious problems with 9 updates in Windows Update.
I just took a look at some other topics in this forum section and it seems I am not the only one having these problems.

I've already tried several things i've found on the internet, but nothing really nothing worked out for me.
I've tried the hotfix, didn't work out; i've tried multiple CMD commands, didn't work out; i've tried to rename the catroot2 folder, didn't work out either...

Is this problem common? Because most of the updates are important; so i'd like them to be installed and they keep on failing every day since then.

If I need to post or upload something, please tell me, because i'm not a computer expert ;-)

Thanks in advantage,

Please open an elevated Command Prompt, and run the following command,

REG LOAD HKLM\COMPONENTS C:\Windows\System32\config\COMPONENTS

post the results.


Here are some instructions to make life easier

1) To open an Elevated Command Prompt Window (the ECP window), click on Start, All Programs, Accessories – then right-click on Command Prompt, and select Run as Administrator. Accept the UAC prompt.
2) To run the commands easier, highlight the block of commands, and right-click on the highlight – select Copy. In the CP Window, click on the black/white icon at top left – select Paste. The commands will run but may not complete the last command, so hit the Enter Key once.
3) To copy the results... click on the Black/White icon in the top left, and select Edit... 'Select All', and hit the Enter key - then use Ctrl+V or r-click+Paste to paste it into your response.

As an update, when I run the system readiness tool, it asks if I want to install hotfix for windows KB947821, I do and it stays it installed successfully but when I reboot and run the readiness tool again, it wants to install the same thing again.

Hoping you guys could help me out with my SP1 install, as I get error 8024200D when I run it through Windows Update. I have gone through the usual stuff, like the sfc /scannow command (no issues), and the System Update Readiness Tool (also fine).

I tried installing manually, but then I get a different error (0x8007002). I was going to start going through the threads here to see what worked, but someone said that each case is likely to be different, so post a thread. So that's what I'm doing. The CBS zip is kinda large, I think it has logs from all of the install attempts, but I didn't want to screw anything up so I left it alone.

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate N. Let me know if you need anything else.

Hello,

I built a new computer over the weekend and installed a legitimate copy of Windows 7 Home Premium x64. After activating, I've been running through the updates and hit a few snags along the way. I was able to Google my way to solutions for the first couple error codes, but this last one is eluding me.

KB2619339 and KB2698365 both generate a Code 8024200D when I try to install them through Windows Update, either individually or together. All other updates are installed.

I have attempted the following:

1. Running the System Update Readiness Tool.
2. Running sfc /scannow (no problems found).
3. Running the automated troubleshooter ("Fix problems with Windows Update").
4. Manually installing each patch from the KB articles directly. When I do this, I get an error stating "The update is not applicable to your computer".
5. Disabling all startup items and services (except Windows Update) in msconfig.
6. Manually running each step here to reset the Windows Update components.

Any assistance you might be able to provide would be deeply appreciated.

A:Error 8024200D when attempting to install KB2619339, KB2698365

That error message is usually solved by installing the updates from the standalone downloads - there are no obvious problems in either your CheckSUR or CBS logs.
However, you say that you've already tried that, and it returned as 'not applicable'.
This can be for a couple of resons.
1) you downloaded the 32-bit version, while you needed the 64-bit version
2) the update is actually installed already - but WU thinks it isn't
3) The update has been superceded by another one.

Is RDS-based applications crash in Windows 7 SP1 or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 installed?
If so, then this probably supercedes KB2698365

I haven't found any updates for KB2619339 (yet) - but have you got media center disabled/uninstalled?

I have been trying to update windows 7 for a few days now and i have been getting the same error message over and over again. I only have 1 important update left and like 10 optional updates. The important update is KB295664, and most of the optional ones are similar. I tried to repair network frame and nothing

A:Windows Failed to update,Error code 80070643

Please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data

If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

Please also post the C:\Windows\windowsudpate.log file

I have recently updated my preloaded window 8 to 8.1. However, after the update it does not accept my old window 8 key and requires me to activate again using a product key. Here is the error code: 0xC004C003
My DELL XPS came with a preloaded copy of window 8 and yes it has a window 8 sticker at the back
and was fully activated before I updated to windows  8.1.  And as far as I know, system which comes with preloaded window 8 has its product key injected to the motherboard and 8.1 is a free update for window 8 users.
So why the update does not accept my window 8 key and ask me for a new key ? I know my window 8 key cannot be used for any other system because the key is injected in the motherboard and I don't even know the key myself.
So what can I do now for my Window to be activated again ?
More frustration is that I can't get back to windows 8.
I tried to reset to the factory image by using DELL backup & Recovery software built in the system.
However, after resetting to the factory image it does not accept embedded product key.
