Windows Update error 80070422
12-Aug-07

I found that the service "Windows Modules Installer" had been stopped and disabled. I had never gone into my services and stopped it so I assume another program did. However, I do not see that listed in the dependencies for Windows Updates or visa versa? As soon as I turned it on, my updates came back on.

Windows Update (Error 80070422)
I have been unable to do any updates since I got my new computer with Vista
Basic. I continually get the 80070422 error. I have gone into
Administrative Tools and checked Properties under Windows Update. At first
Automatic (Delayed) was selected, and I changed that to Automatic. The
Service status was already on Started. However, I still cannot do any
updates and still get the above error message.

Check the Dependency Tab on either of the above Services - It appears
something is missing from the service (80070433 error). Try to determine
what is missing.

To register the Wuaueng.dll file, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click Run, type regsvr32 Wuaueng.dll, and then click OK.
2. When you receive the following message, click OK:
DllRegisterServer in Wuaueng.dll succeeded.

Hello there

First, sorry for my english, i'm french.

I've the same problem since a few days with my Vista Ultimate x64. All my
services are started, i restarted them, i tried to rename the
SoftwareDistribution folder, so WU creates a new one, but the problem is
still here...

I recently upgraded to the Home Basic Vista version and am experiencing

I checked my update log and found Error 1603 - Permissions
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/834484

I renamed my software distribution folder and retried updating with no
success. This is with the .NetFramework update. I used the cleaning tool to
remove it, reinstalled NetFramework 1.1 and the update manually. Still
windows update reappeared twice with the same update and both times
Successful was listed after I clicked install - It detected the update yet,
it showed again with the same update and today when I checked, that update is
no longer listed.

This may possibly what is happening if you've upgraded XP to Vista system as
I have. Update "detects" but it may take a couple of times for it to do so.

The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.
</cmd_output>


Look for some context in your logs to figure out *which* service cannot be started? ; }

In case Gistcheckin's guess for the OP was correct. You could also try using bitsadmin
(in a cmd window) to both check the status of your BITS service and optionally repair it.

Note that another service being disabled was identified as the problem cause
by another poster to this ancient thread.


Good luck

Dear all,

Go to Start. Type 'msconfig' > then go to 'services'. Be sure that all
Micorosoft services are checked in. Then press OK. Your problem will
disappear. I have fixed the problem so simply.
