Windows 7 Update

We have been upgrading our business machines to Windows 7  64bit (clean install).   Done about 18 so far and I am now working on a laptop.   Followed same procedure as other machines.  I have tried to do the update and it comes back with error codes 8E5E0408 and error code 80244019,    I have tried to do them manually and it tries until the status bar gets about 1/3 thru and then it stops and says installation failed.   No other error message.
I have stopped and started BITS, and Windows Update.   One post I found a tool to check windows updates and it did say it fixed a registry entry, but it still will not install updates for Windows 7 (64) Security Updates.    I can manually install the couple of .net updates that were listed.   And yes, I have done restarts after the things I have tried.

Ideas appreciated

which update is failing? bypass the failing one.

Do you have SP1 installed? if not download SP1 install that first.

For the first error, it is recommended to do a re-install of the operating system

Did you check in Services that Windows Update service and Remote Call Procedure service are on?

Reset Windows Update

Reinstall Windows Update Agent (different links for different Win 7 systems (32bit and 64bit))

http://download.windowsupdate.com/WindowsUpdate/redist/standalone/7.1.6001.65/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe

http://download.windowsupdate.com/WindowsUpdate/redist/standalone/7.1.6001.65/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x64.exe 

Run the Windows Update Readiness tool:
http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=20858 for X64

Run SFC /SCANNOW from a Command Prompt

Run a System Restore to a date before the problem started.

Run a Repair Install.  A Repair Install should not affect personal data or installed programs. but it never hurts to backup first.

VERY VERY helpful for the reinstall.    That seems to have done the trick.     It will now do the updates, but I still have to do them manually for some crazy reason.   Gives an error code 80244019,   It will do a few, but always seems to get "stuck" on the last 20-30 after these new installs of Windows 7.    I have googled the error and tried the things mentioned, but still get the error.   Virus scans...none.   Stopped and restarted services.        Oh, well.....at least I can now at least get them done.

Did you try the steps mentioned such as Reset Windows Update, Reinstall Windows Update Agent and Run the Windows Update Readiness tool?
0
 
bankwestAuthor Commented:
Yes to the reset.....   I have not reinstalled the Windows Update Agent as all 18 machines that we have upgraded to windows 7 have had the SAME issue with updates.   They are all on Version 7.6.7600.256.    But I did miss doing the Windows Readiness Tool.  I will do that today and post back what happens.

Is a Server involved?  I do not see it mentioned in a quick scan of your posts.  If a server is involved, this reference should help.  "Run wsusutil reset on your WSUS server and wait for all download activity to complete."

You may also find this reference describing BITS of interest

As I upgrade to Windows 7, I was doing all updates thru Control Panel - Windows Updates.  

For going forward, I was going to rely on WSUS for updates.

Is that my problem???   Guess I thought I could do this manually to get machines current and then let WSUS take over.

I will review your information.   Thanks
