error code 80240016
When I log in I get a pop up that says "Windows can't check for updates". I
click on this and it shows 1 update that needs installed. I click it to
install but it immediately says "failed to install - other updates are
installing, try later" and I get the error code 80240016. This happens every
time I try to install it. I have tried all the help/support tasks but havent
found a solution yet.

Please state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; Vista SP2) when
posting to this newsgroup.

Which update is failing to install (e.g., KB955519) and throws the 80240016
error?

0x80240016 = WU_E_INSTALL_NOT_ALLOWED

Have you tried?...

Error message when you try to install updates from the Windows Update Web
site or from the Microsoft Update Web site: "0x80240016":

Any ideas?

1. Always start your own thread.

2. See if this helps:

0x80240016 is "attempt to install while another install is going on or
reboot is pending"

You might try runing the following commands and rebooting. (Start a command
prompt as administrator)

REG DELETE "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Contr ol\Session
Manager" /v PendingFileRenameOperations /f
REG DELETE
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Cur rentVersion\WindowsUpdate\
Auto Update\RebootRequired" /f
REG DELETE
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Cur rentVersion\WindowsUpdate\
Auto Update" /v RebootRequired /f
REG DELETE
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\Upd ateExeVolatile" /f

This should remove most pending install information.

Stick around: This could be an "interesting" Patch Tuesday & aftermath.
