Re: Error Code: 0x80246008

I found by accident that AU did not work, manually I found the same error as
OP. I tried to activate BITS but no go. I did follow the procedure on art.
883822 (rereg those dll's - ok,ok) but after that BITS would not wake up
either. Errorcode -2147024894. In the system log it states: 2147942402
(0x80070002). Any ideas?

Please, read the related part with BITS in this article, and see if this
helps.

Re: Error Code: 0x80246008

Try manually downloading the BITS package and install it.
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en
Update for Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) 2.0 and WinHTTP 5.1
(KB842773)
If appropriate reboot and then try and start BITS.

Re: Error Code: 0x80246008

In another thread (2147942402 (0x80070002)) I found the solution to get BITS
active. The problem has obviously something to do with the removal of Norton
AVirus awhile ago. I post the solution here. All credits go to David_C.
Thanks again.

Hello all,

If deleting the ..\downloader folder has not solved your problem try
this. It should do the trick.

1. Open a new text document on your desktop.
-right click on desktop
-point to new
-point to text document

2. Copy and paste the following entries into the text document.

regsvr32 oleaut32.dll
regsvr32 jscript.dll
regsvr32 vbscript.dll
regsvr32 msxml.dll
regsvr32 softpub.dll
regsvr32 wintrust.dll
regsvr32 initpki.dll
regsvr32 cryptdlg.dll

3. Save this file as a batch file.
-click on save as
-open the drop down box at the bottom to read save as file type: all
files
-name of file: BITS_fix.bat (the .bat is creating a batch file)

4. Run the BITS_fix.bat (double-click)

5. Now start BITS service. Should start fine and allow all updates.

Explanation: (I think this is what's happening)
-Removing an anti-virus program removes or corrupts initpki.dll.

Hopes this works for any frustrated users out there.

Regards, Bert W
