  1. We are using WSUS and this error is occuring on a W2K3 Ent server.

    Symptoms:
    1. When I double click on update globe, it disappears, the install Express
    or Custom is not displayed, globe comes back.
    2. The following error in WindowsUpdate.log
    DtaStor FATAL: Failed to initialize datastore, error = 0xC80003F3
    DnldMgr FATAL: DM:CAgentDownloadManager::CheckAllCallDownloadStates:
    GetSession failed with 0xc80003f3.
    DtaStor FATAL: Failed to initialize datastore, error = 0xC80003F3

    DtaStor FATAL: Failed to initialize datastore, error = 0xC80003F3
    Report WARNING: Reporter failed to upload events with hr = c80003f3.
    3. The following error in the ReportingEvents.log:
    c80003f3 AutomaticUpdates Failure Software Synchronization Error: Agent
    failed detecting with reason: 0xc80003f3

    I've tried the following:
    regsvr32 MSXML3.dll /s
    net stop wuauserv
    cd /d %windir%\SoftwareDistribution
    rd /s /q DataStore
    net start wuauserv

    I've also tried stoping the WU service, deleting all the folders in the
    SoftwareDistribution folder, and then restarting th WU service.

    Can anyone help?

  2. OK. I fixed this problem and here is how I did it.

    1. First, I again performed the following:
    regsvr32 MSXML3.dll /s
    net stop wuauserv
    cd /d %windir%\SoftwareDistribution
    rd /s /q DataStore
    net start wuauserv

    2. This resulted in the following errors in WindowsUpdate.log:

    0x80240013
    0x8024400a
    0x80240017

    3. Next, I registered the following:

    regsvr32 softpub.dll
    regsvr32 initpki.dll
    regsvr32 mssip32.dll

    4. Then I recieved the following errors in WindowsUpdate.log:

    0x80070008
    0x80240017

    5. Finally, I performed the following:

    Stopped the Automatic Update service
    Renamed the SoftwareDistribution folder in C:\Windows to
    SoftwareDistribution.old
    Started the Automatic Update service.

    Hope this helps someone in the future.

    Superb! Great many thanx.

    After many hours of trying MS's many small "fix-apps" back and forth without getting any wiser....I finally found an errorcode in the log that led me to this saviour.

    Thank you.
