Error Code 80242006 is caused because if the update is high priority update, Automatic Updates will not be able to install the update automatically or manually too, causing the Automatic Updates to keep prompting again and again for you to install the failed updates. Download the update in question from Microsoft and install it manually, however see error code 80070641 below first.

Error Code 80070641 seems to be a Windows Installer issue. Upgrade it from here: http://www.microsoft...;displaylang=en

Error Code 8024200d would appear to be a download problem in that an update cannot install because it needs more data from Microsoft's website before it will install. The error is caused because said data cannot download. Either that or you're trying to install an update that requires other updates to be installed first so I would suggest you're trying to install Vista Service Pack 1 or Service Pack 2. SP2 needs SP1 first, you can't stick it on a non-Sp1 machine.

Hi

Your quick response appreciated. H/ever I am not quite sure if I am understanding the para referring to Error Code 8024200D correctly.
Upon acquiring PC SP1 was preinstalled and I recently thought I had updated it to SP2. Did a check today and it shows up as SP1 on my PC.
Did a check on the failed /successful updates and within that list, attached file shows that SP2 was installed.

I also took it upon my self to do a services.msc check and Windows Installer is shown as being set as auotmatic type.

At this junction would like to inform you that my technical knowledge is somewhat limited so pls bear with me (patience requested).

Upon carriying out instructions received the following
quote
Windows installer service could not be accessed. This can occur if the installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support Personel for assistance

Reading the info stated regarding Error Coed 80242006, indicated exactly what has been happening to me.

Currently in limbo land in that nothing tried has succeeded thus far.

Are you able to offer anything further.

Thanks
Stern
