Re: BITS Error 2147942402 (0x80070002)
I have the same issue, same error code and neither the folder--delete method
nor the running of the .bat file [which all succeedde] has remedied.
this is windows 2000 pro sp4 ie6.3 on a dell optiplex, factory-installed os.
last successful update was about a year ago. I am helping a client and
feeling really intimidated by this one. I checked the setup info on BITS and
it all looks good - all of the required services that bits is dependent on
are verified and started.
active x is clean.
I am stumped
