Windows 8.1 Preview download Error Code: 0x8020002e

To get Windows 8.1 Preview on my computer I have already downloaded its update from the preview.windows.com site and then restarted my pc and when I tried to open Windows Store app, the download of the Windows 8.1 Preview began. But at around half way through the download, I got an error about something with an error code 0x8020002e. I am using Windows 8 on my computer that I have upgraded from Windows 7 and all windows updates are already installed. Can anyone tell me how to solve this problem? Thanks

Re: Windows 8.1 Preview download Error Code: 0x8020002e

It is really strange because I am getting the same error message after about 10 minutes of download. All I am getting is that Windows 8.1 could not be downloaded with the same error code. I dont know why it is hapening with my pc. In any case, I am going to use the build 9385 and after some days I will use the 9431 .iso of Windows 8.

I was using a Windows 8 UK version of my pc and was getting the same error code while downloading this iso file. But later on, after reading from so many websites, I was able to solve this problem and have installed the update properly. I just changed the language to English US on my computer and also changed my Region to US and disabled the DNS client and then the update started to download properly.

Well, it seems that this problem was caused due to their server issues that might have been busy with lots of people downloading the update at the same time. So, I didnt have to change the region on my pc to download this update. I just waited for some couple of days and then began to download this update again and it successfully completed the download on my pc.
