Re: UPDATE Error number: 0x80070424
Thanks Heaps Fermu,

Fixed. As per other posts, why is it you seem to be the only person that
knows how to fix?
Do you have more details on the nature of the problem? Cause?

Thanks
Richard

Because you are relying on the arcane web interface search.
Nobody knows why it chooses the order of presenting its results.

In fact, try adding Fermu's tip to your search criteria
and then filter on Answered Questions
and you will find that Patti MacLeod leads the parade:

- first hit
)


> Do you have more details on the nature of the problem? Cause?



If you use the WU troubleshooter and search for wuaueng
you can see MS give the same tip for code 0x800A01AE

If you search the MS Support site for your code
you can find

<title>You cannot turn on the Automatic Updates feature on a Windows XP Service Pack 2-based computer</title>
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/916261

(Live Search for
update 0x80070424 site:support.microsoft.com
)

3. Double-click the inf folder, right-click au, and then click Install.

</quote>

so it appears that you are using a simpler solution as a workaround
for what really could be a symptom of a more severe problem.


BTW that KB article might be at odds with a another common suggestion
of similar vintage which would replace all those modules that inf file
references:

(Alt-7 search for
0x80070424 "windowsupdateagent20-x86" MVP
)

I don't know but I suspect the KB article is a more current procedure
which should be used now. E.g. even if it regressed the modules that
you have now it would probably result in a functional update service;
then one of the first things it would do would be update itself
with the most current versions of those modules.
