  • Windows Update with the 0x8024D001 error code

    Hi

    I installed Windows XP SP3 and I run Windows Update to update the system.

    Now, the Windows Update page is opened but the 0x8024D001 error code is displayed. How come? How do I fix this?

    Thanks

    Bye

    First couple of links suggest installing an alternative update agent

    Alternatively if you are using WSUS, try updating from Microsoft (or vice versa)

    You could also try clearing the update cache:

          I have noticed that, if I disable the automatic updates from the "Automatic Updates" window and, if, from an administrator command prompt, I write:

          Code:
          sc config wuauserv start= demand
          net start wuauserv
          the "Turn off" option not change in the "Automatic Updates" window, and the command:

          Code:
          wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow
          does not work.

          How come? How do I solve this using only the command line?

          Thanks

                  Sigh....Post #2 in this thread
                  (As Marcel (Dumber) and I go back a fair way, he uses my proper name, not my username. It is in my signature too)

                  In general, can I suggest that, rather than keeping posting the same (or very similar) questions, you actually read and follow the answers you are given, then post back reporting on the results and making sure you answer all the questions you are asked - they are to help us help you. Also, instead of creating several threads on the same topic (or so it appears) you group your related questions (in this case variations on Windows Update and WSUS) in one thread.

                    I had already examined the Tom's responses but, unfortunately, they do not work. How come?

                      TELLING us what you have tried would help as I, for one, do not have psychic powers.

                      What did not work - i.e. what exactly did you do and what exact errors did you get? (again no psychic powers so unable to tell you why not - although the possibility of PEBCAK or PICNIC errors is fairly high on the list)

                      Have you done any basic troubleshooting apart from posting the top error message?
                      This includes (but is not limited to):
                      Event logs
                      WSUS logs
                      IIS logs
                      Windows Update Log
                      Different update source
                      Different computers / OSes
                      New build OS if available

                      And when did the problem change from XP SP3 to Win7 - have you finally completed your OS build?
