[Error number: 0x8DDD0009]

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by Sr. Bocadillo, May 15, 2007.

  1. Today, when I try to update my
    Windows XP Pro with sp2 (5.1 Build 2600)
    it takes around 15 minutes of hammering my CPU
    then I get [Error number: 0x8DDD0009]

    The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are
    trying to view. Take the following steps to try solving the problem:
    a.. Refresh the page.
    b.. In Internet Explorer, delete your Temporary Internet Files by going to
    the Tools menu and clicking Internet Options.
    c.. Close and then re-open Internet Explorer.

    I've tried all that, it's a circle.

    anybody help me out here or is this a temporary Ms problem?

  2. For a fix to this problem, please do BOTH of the following:

    1. For 32-bit systems, download and save to hard disk, and then install:
    <http://download.windowsupdate.com/v7/windowsupdate/redist/standalone/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe>

    2. (not for Vista) Download and install update KB927891 version 3:
    <http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927891>

    If the first of these produces an error message about "Update agent already
    installed", then execute the installer again manually, with parameter
    /wuforce as in:

    WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe /wuforce

    After the fixes have been installed, doing a Microsoft Update or Automatic
    Update might still take some time (though not as much as before) and
    processor and disk usage, but it should not lock out user-level interaction
    with the system and applications, so it should not be such an inconvenience.

    By the way, do you have Office 2003 installed on the problem PC?

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU
    Been trying for a week to fix the custom windows update error 0x8DDD0009.
    We have Windows XP Pro sp2 with all patches and after installing Office 2003
    I could no longer
    do manual updates. Your fix below worked after I had tried dozens of other
    fixes on the web!

  4. Glad to hear it.

    As a matter of interest in pinning down the cause of this problem, would you
    mind posting a follow-up to tell us the size of the file:

    C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\DataStore.edb

    Thank you, you fix worked flawlessly for me.

    One question though, if you don't mind. How did you figure this out?

  11. ....

    It is there. My guess is that you aren't downloading enough headers
    at a time often enough to pick it up. This is a fairly active newsgroup
    so unless you check frequently some old messages could be missed
    by OE's default of Get 300 headers at a time.

    E.g. notice the difference in Xref: number between your first reply and this one:

    <previous msgid=" ">
    Date: Wed, 16 May 2007 17:57:02 +0100
    Xref: TK2MSFTNGP01.phx.gbl microsoft.public.windowsupdate:236019
    </previous>

    <this>
    Date: Fri, 25 May 2007 20:38:56 +0100
    Xref: TK2MSFTNGP01.phx.gbl microsoft.public.windowsupdate:236945
    </this>


    BTW you can click on the above msgid if you want to see it. ; )
