Q: Windows 10 Install Error Code: 80070005

Hello!
 
After downloading Windows 10 several (several) times, I continue to run into the same error code.  I have tried everything I've read: clean boots, removing $Windows.~BT & $Windows.~WS, Playing with /Windows/SoftwareDistribution, etc..  If it's on the web under 80070005, I've tried it.
 
Any assistance would be appreciated!

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,
There are a number of known installation problems for Win10 upgraders that don't correspond to publicly listed error codes. 
It would be helpful if we knew the Make/Model of the computer you have the failed WinX attempt on, as well as the Build year if you know that too.
 
The main issue is what version of Windows did you attempt to upgrade FROM?  Your post didn't say.  Since we are missing this information, we will need it to further diagnose your problem.  In the meantime, if your computer came with Win7/8/8.1 pre-loaded on it, you shouldn't have that problem, and most likely you'll simply need to download the FREE ISO file for WinX directly from Microsoft's website and install from there via cd/dvd or usb media. 
 
If your computer hardware was built prior to 2006, and it's an XP-era computer that was upgraded to Win7/8/8.1 you'll never be able to get the Win10 upgrade.  That's one of the reasons I'm asking you these questions.
 
Generally speaking, Microsoft has publicly stated in many online sources this week that if your hardware is capable of running Win7 SP1 or Win8.1, both the downloadeable upgrade to WinX and the clean install ISO file are guaranteed to work. 
 
If your computer was built in 2006 or after, the chances are good that you can solve your problems by doing a manual clean install with the ISO file downloaded media as described above.  If you have a modern computer, and that's defined as built in 2009 or after (Win7 released in 2009), you have a much better chance of it all working. 
 
Older computers also tend to have at least one of the following: (1) Windows registry corruption; (2) severe Malware-virus infection, and (3) failing or failed hard drive.  Any one or all 3 of these can cause your online upgrade attempt to fail.  Attempting to fix these yourself is a good idea before trying the upgrade again.  PLEASE ENSURE YOU BACKUP ANY AND ALL PERSONAL DATA FROM THAT COMPUTER TO EXTERNAL MEDIA PRIOR TO RE-ATTEMPTING THESE PROCEDURES OR RE-ATTEMPTING WINX UPGRADE AGAIN!!
 
Best of luck,
<<<BIGBEARJEDI>>>

Hi TheDude23112 Just to let you know that I'm currently looking into that issue. I'm talking with colleagues over at Sysnative to see what can be done about this error code, since a lot of users have it when trying to upgrade to Windows 10.So far, you tried to upgrade via the Windows Update (Get Windows 10 app), did you try using the Media Creation Tool?

I am having an issue installing Windows Updates (WU) all have Error Code: 80070005.

Nine updates installed after several tries, but there are about 50 updates waiting to be downloaded and installed.

I ran the SURT, but it kept spinning...all day, so I canceled it. Tried running it again, but it wouldn't let me run it again.

I ran the SFC Scan and have the SFC detail log attached. Appears a lot of files were repaired and some could not be repaired. The files that couldn't be repaired are mostly sample MS music, pictures, etc. Stuff I am not interested in.

Maybe one of my cleaners deleted same as a useless/unused file or maybe a virus corrupted some files? I didn't see anything in the SFC detail log pertaining to WU?

The CBS compressed zip log is 13.6MB, which is over the 8MB upload limit, so couldn't upload it?

On June 23, 2016, MSSE picked up a Rogue: JS/FakeCall.D labeled (Severe). It was quarantined by MSSE, I deleted it.

Malwarebytes this past week picked up and quarantined a few rootkits labeled as severe or a threat. I deleted those. Not sure if these items affected WU or not?

Would the Windows Update - Reset tutorial would work to fix my WU issue here? Seems like a uncomplicated fix?

So any help here would be appreciated, Thanks!

A:Windows Updates won't install, Error Code: 80070005

Hi Vista32,
Thats not good reading.
Most system security experts would advise a complete RE-install of any OS compromised by a Rootkit, but you, from your own admission, have had few.
Iam NOT a security expert but in this case I WOULD, if you can identify them, look them up at BleepingComputers they have an excellent catalogue of Rootkits and there impact/removal.
Just removing them does NOT allways guarentee a clean system.

Having said that SFC has done a pretty good job of repairing some of whats been infected/changed, but it is advised to run it 3x.
From what i can see there are certainly still some errors, in Windows media player, and there are likely to be others
SURT can take >>hours<< to run especially on a previously infected system, as it also makes repairs as it goes along

You can run the troublshooter, if you want.

doing the same song and dance from the last time i had this problem with a pair of patches a few months ago, just with a different update this time around. here's the last thread, pretty much all of it applies to my situation now except with windows update KB3033890: 10 recent Windows Updates giving "unknown error" 80070005

this time around the updater doesn't throw my laptop into a restart loop, instead "only" getting stuck at 35% when configuring updates, then reverting the changes, making my startup time a few minutes longer than usual.

as usual subinacl.exe didn't do anything to bypass this problem. for now i'm just going to hide this update.

Hello! I am trying to fix up my cousin's computer and boy was it mess. There were loads of malware that I had to fix and a lot of stuff to clean. This laptop seems fine now, but there appears to be traces of the malware that has been left behind. It also appears Windows Update has not been run of over 2 years. YEESH. Anyways, upon launching WU, it will scan and give the error code 80070426. I tried to solve this problem myself by looking it up and they all say to go into Services and enable. Software Licensing. They all say to make sure it is set to automatic, which it is, and to start the service it is shows up at stopped. This is where the problem is. When trying to start the service, it says:"Windows could not start the Software Licensing service on Local Computer. Error 0x80070005: Access is denied." So now I'm wondering what to do.

Hello. I am having the same issues with the Windows 10 upgrade as TheDude has previously reported.  In fact, last I checked the upgrade had made 30 unsuccessful attempts to upgrade.
 
I was thinking - and am a non-technically inclined senior citizen - that when I logon to my system I logon on using an @outlook.com address.  Could it be that my system is waiting for me to log on to a "local" account or something?
 
I tried the creation tool... clicked run and "poof," nothing. I even created a USB flash drive with the upgrade on it using our laptop computer.  But after the install began I was asked for the "product key;" wouldn't you know that the product key ended in AEOEM (or some such characters), but the upgrade told me it wasn't a valid product key.
 
So I contacted Dell... so much for paid support; worthless as teets on a boar hog.  They referred me to Microsoft, who, after keeping me on hold for some time, had me run MSCONFIG, go to the services tab, check hide all Microsoft services, and then hit apply.... Only problem? The MSCONFIG window said "not responding!"
 
The Microsoft tech said for $99 she'd be happy to elevate my tech support for one item for 30 days. I said no thanks, that was too much $$$ when they couldn't even guarantee that whatever they might do would correct the issue.  (Besides, it seems there are many folks encountering the same issues I am with the upgrade, so this can't be "just" my computer.)

I have been trying all day to install the windows 7 SP1 platform update (kb2670838). When I restart my computer to finalize the update, it will get to 98% then say "Failed configuring windows update. Reverting changes". Checking the windows update history tells me it failed due to error 80070005, which googling says it is a permissions error. The reason I don't just forget about the update is because some games require it to be installed.

Things I have tried:

Windows update troubleshooter, which claimed it fixed 80070005 but didn't really do anything

Turning windows firewall and antivirus off

Installing in a clean boot slate

Running subinacl with the instructions in this microsoft support page: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/968003

Manually resetting windows update components

Contemplating suicide

Scanning with Microsoft Safety Scanner, no files infected.

Also, I've been installing it manually from the microsoft website. When I try to use windows update, it hangs on 0% downloading, or most recently "Checking for Updates". I think this is related to the cause of 80070005.

It basically makes me not able to simply use the Windows 8.1 freely. It appears everywhere and anywhere.

Alright, well, I started installing Autodesk Maya (I work in it) and everything seemed to be fine until the installer got to the point where it was supposed to install .NET Framework 3.5 and guess what happend. It just gave some unlogical error about me not being connected to the internet. Then I checked the log files and whoala:




It obviously points out that the error is somewhat related to frameworks.

Then I tried to manually install it from "Turn Windows features on or off" and guess what happens after some time once I click on the .NET Framework check-box :)




Then I decided to do a Windows Update since it has 17 crucial updates that it needs to install, but guess what error message appeared here ASWELL :)



Note the error code in all 3 pictures is the same. This is very frustrating.

I tried disabling firewall, windows defender, and I'm pretty sure I'm logged in as an Administrator.

I have Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 on my desktop computer which has 3Gb of RAM and Windows Update continues to nag me that I need to upgrade to SP2.

I have tried to do so over and over again but every time it fails and I get the error message "ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED (0X80070005)".

Now from my research I gather this error message is telling me that I am trying to install SP2 without sufficient privilidges but I am actually logged in as an Administrator.

Things I have tried as suggested in forums and elsewhere in the internet:
1 I have "Re-armed" Vista - whatever that means. Still SP2 install failed.
2 I have disabled Windows Update, renamed the existing SOFTWAREDISTRIBUTION folder and created a new SOFTWAREDISTRIBUTION folder, re-enabled Windows Update and still SP2 install failed.
3 I have used subinacl.msi to run a batch file to reset permission settings just in case I was mistaken about my Administrator login but still SP2 install failed!!!.

I do not know what else to do.

Interestingly I cannot run Windows Media Player 11 either.

A:Error Code 80070005 and lost will to live

have you tried downloading SP2 to a folder then right clicking and running it with administrative privillages? or tried running windows update itself with admin privillages and then try installing SP2?

if that doesnt work and have still not got any closer to solving your problem, you might consider backing up just your files (no system settings or program files) and restoring the OS to factory settings.

after restoring, you could eliminate the possibility of anything going wrong again by doing the following:

disable automatic updates the first chance you get.

then install SP1 followed by SP2 Manually

then on to install other updates available through windows update (you could try running WU with admin privillages)

after that just install your programs i.e WMP11 plus any security software/s and there shouldnt be any problems.

Looks like this is fixed now. Unsure of what actually fixed it. I restarted my computer and it seems like it is installing some updates, so I waited and when windows starts again, I ran Windows Update and it asked me to install another update which I did but Windows came back and said update not needed. Just to be sure, Windows Update is working, I checked for updates again and this time, there are no more updates. So the original problem is mo more there and thus fixed.

Even if you didn't have any issue with Avast untill now that is not equivalent you don't have with it issue now.Remember sucurity software update your own data base about viruses -even more from time to time it also change own drivers.During updating any security software something wrong may happen.

Of course it may going on about really issue with permissions as well.In net there is fix to reset permissions with using subinacl but it is inappriopriate for Vista/Windows 7 and doing this it would really permissions violation in the system! - oryginal permissions shouldn't be changed.But there is way to diagnose issue with permissions and easy fix anly in particular places where really need.

Hi all,

I've been having a really difficult time getting IE 11 to install. I'm trying to install it to a virtual machine to test how well it works on our network but have been getting an 80070005 error from windows update and if I try and download the installer and run it manually I get "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

I've tried resetting permissions via the SubinACL program as detailed in these threads:

windows update error 80070005

Windows update Error 0x80070005 - Need a fix? Click here. - Microsoft Community

I've also tried Microsoft's own Fix-it tool for resetting the Windows update components but that actually came back saying it couldn't find any problems, also run sfc /scannow multiple times with no effect. As a last ditch effort I did a fresh install of windows to the VM, spent the whole day updating only to hit the same error when it gets to IE 11. All other updates installed fine and I can install other programs fine as well, it's literally just IE 11 that refuses to install. Currently running the System Update Readiness tool to see if that helps, will update when it's finished.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi,
I hope al the 80070005 sufferrers are still reading this thread.
If disabling virus scan does not solve the problem then try the following.
The problem does have to do with corrupted permissions in the registry.
Here are the steps to follow:
In Scanning process, we can use Permission Reset Tool in TC.
1. Please download the subinacl.msi file from the following link and save the installation patch onto the Desktop:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=e8ba3e56-d8fe-4a91-93cf-ed6985e3927b&displaylang=en#AffinityDownloads

2. Please go to the Desktop and double click the downloaded file.
3. Please select the C:\Windows\System32 folder as the Destination Folder during the installation. Later we will use this tool to reset the permission settings on the current machine.
4. Click the "Start" Button, in the "Start Search" bar, type: "notepad" (without quotes) and press Enter.
5. Copy the following commands and then paste them into the opened Notepad window:

@echo off

subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=administrators=f
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=administrators=f

I am not able to install these updates, maybe any other updates in general. After attempting the install the following install window says, "Windows Update encountered an unknown error." Next to it an error code 80070643. Microsoft provides a solution to the problem, by re-installing Microsoft NET. Framework. They also provide a link to the program NET. Framework cleanup tool that enables you to uninstall NET. Framework, and it's components.

I followed Microsoft's instructions to solve the issue, though I've been put at a standstill. I have used the NET. Framework Cleanup tool to uninstall NET. Framework and it's components (states that it uninstalls all versions, 1.1 SP1 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.5.) Then afterwards instructed to reinstall NET.
