Windows Vista Update Error Code 80072EE2
Posted on 2009-07-01
I have an HP tx2117cl tablet PC with Windows Vista Ultimate, SP-1, 32-bit installed. It came with Vista Home Premium and I upgraded it. The hard drive failed and it was replaced and everything was restored from HP tech support. I immediately upgraded it to Vista Ultimate. I have never been able to update the machine via control panel\Windows Update. I can download and install updates without a problem though.
I tried disabling the firewall, resetting IE, adding Microsoft's update sites as trusted sites, etc. I even went to the extreme of conducting a clean install of Vista Ultimate, and installed and downloaded and installed all recent hardware drivers, and I still get the 80072EE2 error. I have other simial Vista laptops, but they do not have update problems. What gives?
