BITS Error 2147942402 (0x80070002)

Win XP SP2

BITS set as "Automatic"

In event viewer: "The Background Intelligent Transfer Service service
terminated with service-specific error 2147942402 (0x80070002)."

From services.msc (trying to start BITS manually) the error is reported as
"service-specific error code -2147024894".

I've seen many other posts about various OTHER BITS error codes (and I
assume we all mean Background Intelligent Transfer Service) and have tried
some of the solutions for those different codes.

Thus far these have not worked:
-checked the log on tab in services.msc-this service is enabled for this
-used "rd /q /s "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application
-verified "Workstation" service is running
-following the advice of a poster, tried to find a download of BITS
but the file's not there anymore.

I also saw posts regarding BITS 2.0. I don't even know if that applies to
my situation, so I haven't tried that.

Thanks in advance for the help.

0x80070002 - -2147024894 - ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND
The System cannot find the file specified

You can download the BITS file from one of these links:-

Update package that includes Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) version
2.0 and WinHTTP 5.1 is available for Windows Server 2003, for Windows XP, and for
Windows 2000

Update for Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) 2.0 and WinHTTP 5.1

Thanks for the suggestion.

After doing more research, I downloaded the file and ran it, but, as I
suspected from what I read, that update won't install on my SP2 machine
since I have a "newer" version already.

Is there an unofficial uninstall of BITS that I should do first?

I'm seeing the same problem as you with the exact same error code. I haven't
been able to download updates from MSFT for about a week because I cannot get
the BITS service started.

So far, all the posted BITS updates in the knowledge base are supposedly for
an older version than my software. My qmgr.dll version number is

All the registry checks suggested in other threads are okay in my system, so
theoretically everything I need is setup correctly in the registry, yet the
silly BITS service won't start.

Try re-registering the Qmgr.dll and Qmgrprxy.dll BITS files.
1. Click Start, click Run, type regsvr32 qmgr.dll in the Open box, and then click OK.
2. Click OK.
3. Click Start, click Run, type regsvr32 qmgrprxy.dll in the Open box, and then click
4. Click OK.

Try WU again (you may need to reboot) first.

Also this was posted by "Paca" (but with a different error code).

"If your computer download an update, but there is not a error number check the view
installation history. you might get an error 80246008. If that is the case. you might
have an error 2147024891 after trying to the BIT

start/run: services.msc
double click on: Background Intelligent Transfer Service
change it to manual, and then click start ..if you get 2147024891 error..


Delete the two files in:

C:\Documents and

run the start in the Background Intelligent Transfer Service

and you will see the update windows running again :)"

Anymore on this issue? I still cannot start the service.
I RPC supposeed to be a local or network system setting.
Seems I changed either that service or RPC Locator from
network to local and then do not know how to set it back
due to a missing file name. And what are those passwords
about under networkk settings?
