  3. Getting the 80070005 error when attempting windows update - vista ultimate -
    Office 2007

    I did a google search and some results said it was an access denied problem
    and suggested using SubInACL but none of them said if the error number or the
    program was for vista specifically, and SubInACL does not list vista as
    supported. I tried it anyway with no success. One site had a suggestion to
    change some things with Dcomcnfg but nothing there needed changing. I also
    tried to download two different manual install files for the windows update
    installer but both of them failed. I tried to download SP1 manually and
    install it and got the same error(80070005). I followed the link that SP1
    gave me from the error and tried the steps there but they didn't work. I
    tried to download a couple updates to help fix update problems(one released a
    day before SP1) but both said "The update does not apply to your system". I
    checked the windowsupdate.log and the last two KB's that appeared before the
    problem are KB946041 and KB905866. I tried to download and install them but
    got the same message as the other manual downloads. When you click on a
    manual download file it says "searching for updates". Do the manual install
    files still use windows updates to install? Kinda funny how a fix for windows
    update can't install because of the problem that it's trying to fix. Tried
    system restore and that didn’t work. Tried to reset the SoftwareDistribution
    folder and that didn’t work either.

    These couple lines appear hundreds of times in windowsupdate.log
    I could report the problem in an email but I figured i'd try here first.
    And I might have provided more usfule information on the problem.

    So... any more ideas?

  5. Thank you

    Thanks for the fast response but I guess theres no choice but to go with the
    support incident request.
    I don't want to re-install vista though. Maybe there might be a manual
    update I can get and install in the future. Or I could just keep manualy
    installing updates(for ones that do install).

    Also I'm viewing this discussion from the Microsoft discussion groups site
    and that link you posted brings me back to the same discussion and I've read
    all the other posts already.

    The first time I ran the .bat file for SubInACL.exe that I found at
    http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2006/09/04/739820.aspx
    , I think the majority of changes failed but I thought it might be normal,
    or the changes required administrator privileges. Instead of just
    double-clicking the .bat file I went to accessories in the start menu and
    right-clicked command prompt to run it as administrator. Then I ran the .bat
    file from the command prompt and most of the changes were successful. I did
    this in the administrator account too but I think running the .bat file from
    the command prompt as administrator is what did it. After a restart I no
    longer got the 80070005 error.

    It took a long time for windows update to finish searching for updates but
    when it was finished there were two updates that needed to be downloaded but
    when I tried to download them I got the error 80246008. I'm assuming this is
    unrelated but who knows. I checked a Microsoft article on this and it said
    to start the BITS service but when attempting to do that I get error 2: The
    system cannot find the file specified. I tried using bitsadmin but several
    commands end with error 0x80080005. The /util /repairservice command tells
    me I can't use it on the version of the operating system. I deleted the two
    qmgr files in the downloader folder too and used the regsvr32 command with
    several files. initpki.dll and msxml.dll told me the specified module was not
    found and qmgr.dll said it was loaded but the entry point DllRegisterServer
    was not found. I'm still searching for a solution to this problem.

    The solution for 80070005 that worked for me is in my previous post in the
    first paragraph.
    For the BITS problem, I found the solution at the following link:
    http://forums.techguy.org/windows-vista/638599-solved-windows-auto-update-background.html

    Replaced good registry data for the bits service for what was on my computer
    and after I restarted, the BITS service was working and Windows Update
    worked. I changed permissions for the registry entries just to be safe.
    Maybe both errors I had were both caused by permissions or at least the same
    problem. Not everyone has had this problem but it has happened several times
    so it must be something specific. Thought I might mention this computer has
    Norton (I think 2003 or something like that) and Microsoft Office Small
    business 2007.

    someone to answer. I did not do any of the reinstall links as listed
    because they say to uninstall any virus programs before doing it. I
    don't want to uninstall the virus program I have so I am not going to
    do this suggestion: Install/reinstall Windows Update Client


    If I get this error code, does that mean that my Windows Vista is not
    actually looking for updates and updating?

    Windows Update Error 80070005 on Vista Premium
    I am battling with the same error 80070005 and unrecoverable error if I try to re-install Windows Update. Has anyone had a satisfactory fix from Microsoft yet?

    Also note from the Windows Update log file it appears to be stuck on what some people are calling a stealth update to Windows Update itself:-

    SelfUpdate handler update required: Current version: 7.0.6000.374, required version: 7.0.6000.381

    Call me paranoid if you will but maybe this is why I can't find anyone that can fix it yet other than people suggesting re-install of Vista or suggesting fixes that used to work on older OS.

    Help Please.

    Please post back any response that you get that actually works to assist others who have

    Just a thought, one of the most common causes of this error code (access denied) is the
    Anti Virus and Anti Spyware software programs running on the computer.
    You can try turning them off and then try the updates again. Keep the firewall on though.

    Windows Update Error Code: 80070005 & 80070422 - .Net Framework 3.5 - Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2 (Orcas)
    So approx a months ago ( 9/20 ) I noticed that my system bogged down alot near midnight. I checked task manager and found a service Windows Module Installer was constantly running around this time period. One night I had disabled the service and forgotten to turn it back on.

    I just ran into this issue myself with error '80070422'. The issue is that the Wwindows Update is dependant on this service running (obvious reasons).

    Perhaps you have done the same. Go to service management console (Start -> Run -> Services.msc) and verify that the 'Windows Modules Installer' is enabled.

    Check for updates and hopefully this will resolve it for you as it did for me. This also resolved an issue with installing the Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2 (Orcas) with the following error messages.

    I am have also been getting this problem since 9th October 2007. I have
    contatced both Microsoft and Symantec (I am running Internet Security 2008).
    Both of the suggested fixes are below. As yet they have not worked for me -
    does anyone know the answer to the following questions please (both MS and
    Symantec have not replied to my further questions):

    1. The name and location of the Executable file name for Windows Update
    manager in Vista? Symantec suggested wupdmgr.exe, but a full search of my
    laptop has not loacated this file.

    2. When I try to rename c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution I do not have
    permission on my user account, even tho it has administrator access. I
    enabled the administrator account on my laptop, and this doesn't have
    permission either. Does anyone know how I can give either account the
    required acccess?

    Microsoft's Solution:
    Rename Software Distribution folder:

    1. Click on 'Start', choose 'Run', type in CMD and click on 'OK'.

    2. Type NET STOP WUAUSERV and press 'Enter'. (Leave this window open for
    later use)

    3. Open 'My Computer'.

    4. Find the folder c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution.

    5. Right mouse click on SoftwareDistribution and choose 'Rename', call the
    folder "SDold"

    6. Return to the black Window that opened in step 1 type NET START WUAUSERV
    and click 'Enter'.

    7. Close all the windows.

    Once we have performed the above steps, please access the Windows Update
    site and see, if the issue is resolved.

    Symantec's Solution

    please note that this issue could be caused if Norton Internet Security is
    blocking Internet connection for the Windows Update Manager. I suggest that
    you please set permissions for the Windows Update Manager to access the
    internet to resolve this issue. Please follow the steps provided below to
    permit Windows Update Manager for internet access:

    1. Open Norton Internet Security (NIS) 2008.
    2. Click on settings.
    3. Click on Personal firewall
    4. Click on Configure
    5. Click on Program control in the left pane of the Internet Security and
    Firewall Options Window
    6. Browse through the folder "C:\Windows\System32\" (Default path).
    7. Click on the application "wupdmgr.exe".
    8. Select OK.
    9. Once you finish adding wupdmgr.exe, I suggest that you set its Access
    status as "Allow".

    NOTE: If you are unable to find the executable file (wupdmgr.exe), then
    please contact Microsoft Technical Support department for further assistance
    in getting the actual "Name" and "Location" of the Executable file name for
    Windows Update manager.

    I believe the one that fixed the problem was the security upgrade KB941644
    since it is back on the list of suggested upgrades once the poll for upgrades
    is now working.

    I will NOT re-install this upgrade.

    Windows Update Error Code: 80070005
    Getting the 80070005 error when attempting windows update - vista ultimate -
    Office 2007

    I did a google search and some results said it was an access denied problem
    and suggested using SubInACL but none of them said if the error number or the
    program was for vista specifically, and SubInACL does not list vista as
    supported. I tried it anyway with no success. One site had a suggestion to
    change some things with Dcomcnfg but nothing there needed changing. I also
    tried to download two different manual install files for the windows update
    installer but both of them failed. I tried to download SP1 manually and
    install it and got the same error(80070005). I followed the link that SP1
    gave me from the error and tried the steps there but they didn't work. I
    tried to download a couple updates to help fix update problems(one released a
    day before SP1) but both said "The update does not apply to your system". I
    checked the windowsupdate.log and the last two KB's that appeared before the
    problem are KB946041 and KB905866. I tried to download and install them but
    got the same message as the other manual downloads. When you click on a
    manual download file it says "searching for updates". Do the manual install
    files still use windows updates to install? Kinda funny how a fix for windows
    update can't install because of the problem that it's trying to fix. Tried
    system restore and that didn???t work. Tried to reset the SoftwareDistribution
    folder and that didn???t work either.

    These couple lines appear hundreds of times in windowsupdate.log
    I could report the problem in an email but I figured i'd try here first.
    And I might have provided more usfule information on the problem.

    So... any more ideas?

    It took a long time for windows update to finish searching for updates but

    when I tried to download them I got the error 80246008. I'm assuming this is

    Replaced good registry data for the bits service for what was on my computer

    worked. I changed permissions for the registry entries just to be safe.
    Maybe both errors I had were both caused by permissions or at least the same

    Also note from the Windows Update log file it appears to be stuck on what some people are calling a stealth update to Windows Update itself:-

    SelfUpdate handler update required: Current version: 7.0.6000.374, required version: 7.0.6000.381

    Call me paranoid if you will but maybe this is why I can't find anyone that can fix it yet other than people suggesting re-install of Vista or suggesting fixes that used to work on older OS.

    Please post back any response that you get that actually works to assist others who have
    the same problem.

    Just a thought, one of the most common causes of this error code (access denied) is the
    Anti Virus and Anti Spyware software programs running on the computer.
    You can try turning them off and then try the updates again. Keep the firewall on though.

    Windows Update Error Code: 80070005 & 80070422 - .Net Framework 3.5 - Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2 (Orcas)
    So approx a months ago ( 9/20 ) I noticed that my system bogged down alot near midnight. I checked task manager and found a service Windows Module Installer was constantly running around this time period. One night I had disabled the service and forgotten to turn it back on.

    I just ran into this issue myself with error '80070422'. The issue is that the Wwindows Update is dependant on this service running (obvious reasons).

    Perhaps you have done the same. Go to service management console (Start -> Run -> Services.msc) and verify that the 'Windows Modules Installer' is enabled.

    Check for updates and hopefully this will resolve it for you as it did for me. This also resolved an issue with installing the Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2 (Orcas) with the following error messages.

    I am have also been getting this problem since 9th October 2007. I have
    contatced both Microsoft and Symantec (I am running Internet Security 2008).
    Both of the suggested fixes are below. As yet they have not worked for me -
    does anyone know the answer to the following questions please (both MS and
    Symantec have not replied to my further questions):

    1. The name and location of the Executable file name for Windows Update
    manager in Vista? Symantec suggested wupdmgr.exe, but a full search of my
    laptop has not loacated this file.

    2. When I try to rename c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution I do not have
    permission on my user account, even tho it has administrator access. I
    enabled the administrator account on my laptop, and this doesn't have
    permission either. Does anyone know how I can give either account the
    required acccess?

    Microsoft's Solution:
    Rename Software Distribution folder:

    1. Click on 'Start', choose 'Run', type in CMD and click on 'OK'.

    2. Type NET STOP WUAUSERV and press 'Enter'. (Leave this window open for
    later use)

    3. Open 'My Computer'.

    4. Find the folder c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution.

    5. Right mouse click on SoftwareDistribution and choose 'Rename', call the
    folder "SDold"

    6. Return to the black Window that opened in step 1 type NET START WUAUSERV
    and click 'Enter'.

    7. Close all the windows.

    Once we have performed the above steps, please access the Windows Update
    site and see, if the issue is resolved.

    Symantec's Solution

    please note that this issue could be caused if Norton Internet Security is
    blocking Internet connection for the Windows Update Manager. I suggest that
    you please set permissions for the Windows Update Manager to access the
    internet to resolve this issue. Please follow the steps provided below to
    permit Windows Update Manager for internet access:

    1. Open Norton Internet Security (NIS) 2008.
    2. Click on settings.
    3. Click on Personal firewall
    4. Click on Configure
    5. Click on Program control in the left pane of the Internet Security and
    Firewall Options Window
    6. Browse through the folder "C:\Windows\System32\" (Default path).
    7. Click on the application "wupdmgr.exe".
    8. Select OK.
    9. Once you finish adding wupdmgr.exe, I suggest that you set its Access
    status as "Allow".

    NOTE: If you are unable to find the executable file (wupdmgr.exe), then
    please contact Microsoft Technical Support department for further assistance
    in getting the actual "Name" and "Location" of the Executable file name for
    Windows Update manager.

    I believe the one that fixed the problem was the security upgrade KB941644
    since it is back on the list of suggested upgrades once the poll for upgrades
    is now working.

    I will NOT re-install this upgrade.

    Getting the 80070005 error when attempting windows update - vista ultimate -
    Office 2007

    I did a google search and some results said it was an access denied problem
    and suggested using SubInACL but none of them said if the error number or the
    program was for vista specifically, and SubInACL does not list vista as
    supported. I tried it anyway with no success. One site had a suggestion to
    change some things with Dcomcnfg but nothing there needed changing. I also
    tried to download two different manual install files for the windows update
    installer but both of them failed. I tried to download SP1 manually and
    install it and got the same error(80070005). I followed the link that SP1
    gave me from the error and tried the steps there but they didn't work. I
    tried to download a couple updates to help fix update problems(one released a
    day before SP1) but both said "The update does not apply to your system". I
    checked the windowsupdate.log and the last two KB's that appeared before the
    problem are KB946041 and KB905866. I tried to download and install them but
    got the same message as the other manual downloads. When you click on a
    manual download file it says "searching for updates". Do the manual install
    files still use windows updates to install? Kinda funny how a fix for windows
    update can't install because of the problem that it's trying to fix. Tried
    system restore and that didn???t work. Tried to reset the SoftwareDistribution
    folder and that didn???t work either.

    These couple lines appear hundreds of times in windowsupdate.log
    I could report the problem in an email but I figured i'd try here first.

    So... any more ideas?

    update I can get and install in the future. Or I could just keep manualy
    installing updates(for ones that do install).

    Also I'm viewing this discussion from the Microsoft discussion groups site
    and that link you posted brings me back to the same discussion and I've read
    all the other posts already.

    The first time I ran the .bat file for SubInACL.exe that I found at
    http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2006/09/04/739820.aspx
    , I think the majority of changes failed but I thought it might be normal,
    or the changes required administrator privileges. Instead of just
    double-clicking the .bat file I went to accessories in the start menu and
    right-clicked command prompt to run it as administrator. Then I ran the .bat
    file from the command prompt and most of the changes were successful. I did
    this in the administrator account too but I think running the .bat file from
    the command prompt as administrator is what did it. After a restart I no
    longer got the 80070005 error.

    It took a long time for windows update to finish searching for updates but
    when it was finished there were two updates that needed to be downloaded but
    when I tried to download them I got the error 80246008. I'm assuming this is
    unrelated but who knows. I checked a Microsoft article on this and it said
    to start the BITS service but when attempting to do that I get error 2: The
    system cannot find the file specified. I tried using bitsadmin but several
    commands end with error 0x80080005. The /util /repairservice command tells
    me I can't use it on the version of the operating system. I deleted the two
    qmgr files in the downloader folder too and used the regsvr32 command with
    several files. initpki.dll and msxml.dll told me the specified module was not
    found and qmgr.dll said it was loaded but the entry point DllRegisterServer
    was not found. I'm still searching for a solution to this problem.

    The solution for 80070005 that worked for me is in my previous post in the
    first paragraph.
    For the BITS problem, I found the solution at the following link:
    http://forums.techguy.org/windows-vista/638599-solved-windows-auto-update-background.html

    Replaced good registry data for the bits service for what was on my computer
    and after I restarted, the BITS service was working and Windows Update
    worked. I changed permissions for the registry entries just to be safe.
    Maybe both errors I had were both caused by permissions or at least the same
    problem. Not everyone has had this problem but it has happened several times
    so it must be something specific. Thought I might mention this computer has
    Norton (I think 2003 or something like that) and Microsoft Office Small
    business 2007.

    I had same problem and this is how you fix it without a request or a download:

    1. Disable Windows Update:

    (a) Start->all programs->accessories->run-> Type services.msc and press ok
    (b) Right click on "Windows Update"->Click on stop (Windows Update is now
    disabled)

    2. Rename Software Distribution folder
    a. Navigate to: C:/Windows/
    b. Find the folder named: “SoftwareDistributionâ€
    c. Rename that folder to something like “SoftwareDistribution.oldâ€
    d. Create a new folder called “SoftwareDistributionâ€
    3. Enable Windows Update
    a. Click on start
    b. Click on all programs
    c. Click on accessories
    d. Click on Run
    e. Type services.msc and press ok
    f. Right click on windows update
    g. Click on start


    If you are unable to find Software Distribution Folder, follow these
    steps before #2 above.
    1. From the explorer window press the Alt key to view the file menu.
    2. Click Tools
    3. Select Folder Options
    4. Select the View tab
    5. Select “Show hidden files and foldersâ€
    6. Remove the selection from “Hide protected operating system filesâ€
    7. Click OK
