RE: Update failed error code:8024402C

0x8024402c
WU_E_PT_WINHTTP_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED
Winhttp SendRequest/ReceiveResponse failed with 0x2ee7 error.
Either the proxy server or target server name can not be resolved.
Corresponding to ERROR_WINHTTP_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED.
Stop/Restart service or reboot the machine if you see this error frequently.

When searching for available updates on the Windows Update site, you
receive the
0x8024402C, 0x80240030 or 0x8024502d error
http://v5.windowsupdate.microsoft.co...cleid=26&ln=en

http://support.microsoft.com/?id=883821

(check if you have WuWebcontrolclass if youdo it must be enabled
c:\windows\Downloaded Program Files)

0x80072EE2
ERROR INTERNET TIME OUT

Check your firewall settings it may be blocking,
Turn off any web filters, ( popups etc.)
check for spyware, adware

look at:
You receive an "Error 0x80072EE2" or "Error 0x80072EFD" error message
when you try to use Windows Update
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;836941

http://www.updatexp.com/0x80072ee2.html

check your proxy setting if any.
proxycfg setting view
proxycfg -d deactivate
proxycfg -u copy setting from IE

RE: Update failed error code:8024402C

I tried doing everything that was outlined in this newsgroup and in the
knowledge base. None worked. However, the following did work for me:

In Internet Explorer type in the following url;
http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/catalog
From the left-hand sidebar choose Windows updates and install recommended
updates.

After installing the recommended updates, I rebooted and was able to use
Windows update again. I hope this works for others in the same situation as
well!

Another solution: for me under w2000/ no proxy/ Zone Alarm...

Another person noted that Svchost.exe was involved. So I enabled

\W...\System32\SvcHost.exe

thorough the Zone Alarm firewall as both client and server, and that soleved
it for me. Cheers

RE: Update failed error code:8024402C

I have not been able to update since december 2007, and have spent hours
trying everything to fix error code "8024402C," even trying to call customer
service for help (after spending a hour on hold, and hitting a million
buttons, I was told to call Toshiba. The only solution I found was to never
buy Microsoft again...My next computer will be a Mac.

Things change. ; } Notice that the original post for this thread
is over 4 years old. And in the number of months that are represented
by the post you are replying to the MUC site changed and new operating
systems were produced too. (Besides only implying your problem symptom
you haven't disclosed your OS which is always a helpful thing to do.)
