We are having an issue installing the desktop experience on a terminal server.  We consistantly get this error: "update desktopexperience of package desktopexperience failed to be turned on status 0x80071a90".
We have done the following:
1. Installed all windows updates
2. Uninstalled antivirus
3. Ran the system file check (sfc /scannow), and it did not find any errors

I am out of options.

I have another terminal server that I installed this same feature and it installed just fine.

Can I install this manually?  I REALLY need this feature

Never mind, I figured it out!

Had to perform a clean boot (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/331796) to get it to work.

Please refund my points.

Hope this helps someone else out!
