    I have two Itanium 2 systems running Windows 2003. After I set them up in the
    registry to connect to the WSUS server I run ClientDiag.exe and this is the
    output:

    WSUS Client Diagnostics Tool

    Checking Machine State
    Checking for admin rights to run tool . . . . . . . . . PASS
    Automatic Updates Service is running. . . . . . . . . . PASS
    Background Intelligent Transfer Service is not running. PASS

    GetFileVersion(szEngineDir,&susVersion) failed with hr=0x80070002

    The system cannot find the file specified.

    So I check the WindowsUpdate.log and the contents are:

    2007-06-26 14:49:41 964 174 Misc =========== Logging initialized (build:
    5.8.0.2694, tz: -0700) ===========

    2007-06-26 14:49:45 964 174 Setup wusetup has finished. Exit code is d00a.
    Reboot is NOT needed


    Is there a workaround for this? I tried resetting all the Security ID's and
    WSUS ID's but I dont think that was the issue.
