Re: Error 80070005 / service wuauserv

This error message may occur if you have insufficient permissions to the Windows
Update registry keys. The WindowsUpdate.log file will also read errors
0x80070005 and 0x80080005.

Don't know which permissions?
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate
(kb836926) seems to be okay.

Re: Error 80070005 / service wuauserv

Hi,



Please check to make sure that the wuauserv service is added to the Svchost
registry key.



Add WUAUSERV and BITS to the SvcHost process

1. Click Start.

2. Choose Run.

3. In the Run box, type REGEDIT.

4. Click OK.

The Registry Editor opens.

*WARNING*

Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may
require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee
that problems resulting from the incorrect use of Registry Editor can be
solved. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

5. Navigate to the following
key:HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\SvcHost.

6. Double-click to open the netsvcs key.

7. Under Value Data .

8. Add BITS and WUAUSERV to the list of services.

9. Exit the registry.

10. Click OK.

11. Restart the system.



This issue may occur if you don't have the correct permissions set on the
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT hive in the registry.



1. Click Start > Run

2. Enter regedit into the Run field and click OK

3. Right-Click on the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT item and select Permissions

4. Please write down the items listed under Group or user name

5. Make sure that the Full Control check box under Allow is checked for the
Administrators group.

6. If the only group listed is everyone, make sure Full Control under Allow
is checked

7. Uncheck any boxes that are currently checked in the Deny column

8. Click OK

9. Register the following DLLs

wuapi.dll

wuaueng1.dll

wuaueng.dll

wucltui.dll

10. Restart the Automatic Updates service by running the following commands

net stop wuauserv

net start wuauserv

11. Restart the BITS service by running the following commands

net stop bits

net start bits

Thank you

Eric

Re: Error 80070005 / service wuauserv

Thanks, but it doesn't work:

> Add WUAUSERV and BITS to the SvcHost process

WUAUSERV and BITS already had been in the list

> Right-Click on the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT item and select Permissions

Permissions for Administrators already had been set to full control (no
'deny" set)

> 9. Register the following DLLs

I registered wuapi.dll, wuaueng1.dll and wucltui.dll

Registering wuaueng.dll doesn't work (error code 80004005)!

I can't stop or start wuauserv (error 5, access denied)

Any further hints? Thanks in advance,
Rainer

Re: Error 80070005 / service wuauserv

Click START, select RUN
Type: REGSVR32 C:\WINDOWS\system32\atl.dll


(assuming Windows is on your C drive) - can't hurt.
