Error Code: 0x8024002D
means - a full-file patch failed because the source was required

If you were downloading a patch, repair Office install and try the patch again or try
installing the patch with the Office CD in the installation drive.

I hope all my time spent will help others on this. It is fairly ridiculous to me but maybe others aren't in a similar situation.

I had the same problems installing this update. After much riggamaroll searching everywhere it turns out this Update as mentioned is for Microsoft Works8. Having a new machine like most of you I assumed I had Works8 installed.

I don't! It's Works 8.5.
This update is not needed and can be successfully just ignored or hidden.

To find your version:(in vista anyway)
1) Click Start > All Programs > and then PC Help & Tools > Click Recovery Manager.

The recovery manager welcome screen opens.

2) Click Next.
3) On the Software Program re-installation screen select Yes, and then click Next.
4) On the Welcome screen, click Next.
5) Look for the Microsoft Works program and check if there is any version number next to it.

If it 8.5 as mine was your done. Just ignore or hide the Update.

Now you'd think the update would recognize this but hey it's Microsoft. It ain't ever easy.

Best of Luck...

Yes. Start a new thread, post if this is Vista 32 or 64 bit, which
Service Packs have been installed, and what update is throwing the error
code.
Then someone may assist you.

Re: Error code_8024002D for Windows Update

Hello,

To reply to an email I got with no return address...

hey i do have windows vista home premium but I cannot find PC help and
tools, can u help me pls.

Thank you


The instructions I listed were given to me by an HP Tech for a HP computer.

I am not sure how to find anything on your computer as you didn't list a brand name. Maybe someone can reply further to what you are asking or...

I'd also try Craigslist Discussion boards under "Computer" for the easiest maybe fastest Q & A session. I really like these message boards but beware there are some funny people (NOT) answering your questions sometimes. Get a few answers and go from there.

I think in general from the replies I got at the time most people had the higher version of Microsoft Works and didn't need this update. I just chose to hide it as I was sure but I think you could hide it too and not have any future worries. I can only think if you had the correct version the update would go through.

Best of luck...
