  • Server 2008 x64 - Unable to install Microsoft Update

    Server 2008 x64 with SP2 installed. Trying to install Microsoft Update to get updates for Exchange. As soon as I go to Windows Update, click on "Find out more" under the "Get updates for other Microsoft products." I get the following error:

    Microsoft Update could not be installed on your computer

    Make sure that you log on as an administrator or as a member of the Administrators group, and then try again.

    More troubleshooting options

    If your computer is connected to a network and the problem persists, contact your system administrator to see if your Microsoft Update settings are managed using group policy.
    If your computer is not connected to a network, or if your system administrator has not disabled Microsoft Update, check if the Windows Update service is disabled or stopped. To see how to start a service, search Help and Support on your computer.

    Note: If you experience problems with installing Microsoft Update, you can continue to get updates for your computer by going to Windows Update in Control Panel.

    [Error number: 0x800A01AE]

    Looked up the error and came across this but it doesn't apply to 2008:

    Anyone else run across this? Way to install it manually or anything?
