Windows Update Error 8024400E

Hello,
Starting yesterday I am getting a "Windows can't check for updates" message.
When I try to run Windows Update I get error code 8024400E. I am running
Windows Vista without SP1 (I am one of the lucky winners that has a driver
that needs to be updated before SP1 will show up). Any assistance will be
greatly appreciated! Here are some of the log errors.

Re: Windows Update Error 8024400E

Thanks for the tip! I had actually found this article and tried everything,
however this did not resolve the issue. I did notice in the list at the
bottom the item that applies to my issue. Any other suggestions?

Re: Windows Update Error 8024400E

> WARNING: PTError: 0x8024400e

PT- Synchronizes updates information to the local datastore
The local datastore is DataStore.edb. It is possible that it's become
corrupted due to it's being scanned by antivirus software while it is in
use [locked] or, a 3rd party firewall is blocking the synchronization.

*** Which firewall is being used ? ***

If the native Vista firewall is being used, suggest you rename
DataStore.edb to see if that resolves the issue.
You can run the commands below from an Elevated Command Prompt or,
save the commands to a .bat file and run the .bat file.

To open an Elevated Command prompt

1. Click the Start button.
2. In the Search box, type command prompt.
3. In the list of results, right-click Command Prompt, and then click
Run as administrator. Administrator permission required If you are
prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the
password or provide confirmation.

At the prompt, type in the following commands exactly as written,
pressing Enter after *each* one

net stop wuauserv
net stop bits
cd %windir%\softwaredistribution
cd datastore
ren datastore.edb datastore.old
net start bits
net start wuauserv
exit

Or, to creat a .bat file -
1. Click the Start button, and then type notepad in the Start Search box.
2. Click Notepad from the Programs list.
3. Copy and then paste the following commands into Notepad:

net stop wuauserv
net stop bits
cd %windir%\softwaredistribution
cd datastore
ren datastore.edb datastore.old
net start bits
net start wuauserv

4. Save the Notepad file on the Desktop as rename.bat. To do this,
follow these steps:
a. In Notepad, click File, click Save As, and then type rename.bat.
b. In the Save in list, click Desktop.
c. In the Save as type list, click All Files, and then click Save.
5. On the Desktop, right-click the rename.bat file, and then click Run
as administrator.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation,
type the password, or click Continue.

Restart the system and see if it can update now.

Re: Windows Update Error 8024400E

Thank you very much for the tip. I am not running the Windows Firewall (I am
on a domain and it is not available due to Group Policy) or any other
firewall, although we are running Symantec AV CE. Would you still recommend
the course of action you list below? If so I will give it a try.

Re: Windows Update Error 8024400E

I ended up deciding to go ahead and try this ... unfortunately it did not
work. I discovered that it cleared my Windows Update history, which I did
not want it to do, so I am going to restore the file since it didn't resolve
the issue. Any other ideas?

Re: Windows Update Error 8024400E

Have you consulted the Admin [if there is one] about this issue ?

Renaming DataStore.edb deletes the History shown on the Microsoft Update
sites [Window/Microsoft Update] in XP/Win2K/WS2K3 . In Vista, it deletes
the entries in the 'Windows Update History' list.

You can rename it first and see if the issue is resolved.
If no joy, then delete the newly created DataStore.edb [after stopping
the BITS and Windows Update services] and rename the previous
DataStore.ebd [from DataStore.old back to .edb] to retain the Windows
Update History list.


If you rename DataStore.edb and the issue is still occurring than it's
definitely related to the firewall/AV.

If you rename the DataStore.edb and the issue goes away for awhile but
*reoccurs*, then suggest you or the Admin reconfigure the AV to not scan
the locations of the workstation[s] listed here:

Virus scanning recommendations for computers that are running Windows
Server 2003, Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows Vista
