Re: Error message 0x8024000E

The geek translation for this is "the SUS agent is attempting to parse an update's XML blob and has encountered data that is invalid".

Did you see this Error on-screen at Windows Update, or in your Windows Update log file?
Is this a home-based pc , or, is it in a company-based network? If in a company setting, see your system administrator.

What item(s) did you select for update?

Use Windows' Wordpad to open this log:
C:\Windows\Windows Update.log

Look at bottom of file. Post back here, any Error notations. and if not, still copy & paste (here) the section for "fail" date.

Re: Error message 0x8024000E

I have got the same problem when trying to use Microsoft Update instead of
Windows update (after many attempts Windows Update finally works but the
instructions I found were not complete. It was said to close IE but a full
restart proved to be necessary).
Note. I must say I have Windows update problems now on nearly every computer
I use. Clearly it is not robust software.
Here is the part of the file showing the failure:

Re: Error message 0x8024000E

Hello,
I got no answer but finally could solve the problem myself. How is difficult
to say but surely it was not related to proxy's as many messages seemed to
indicate. I first installed IE7 outside of Windows update. Then I got a
request to add the Windows Update site to my friendly sites which I accepted.
Using Windows Update was not better (a lot a updates but no one installed)
without any error code but inspection of windows update log file revealed
another error code (that I don't remember) for which I found an article in
the Knowledge Base. It was related to registration of dll files related that
I had to do in a command prompt window.
The conclusion of the story: it is often necessary to go deeply in log files
to compensate for a lack of clear error messages. I must say that without
these posts I would not have had the idea. Thank you.
