Ditto -- I run a student computer lab and about a third of my machines are
giving me this error. Please let me know if anyone finds a solution!

Thanks,
Amy

RE: Microsoft Update Fails

Somebody reported that this works.

1) Stop the Automatic Updates service;
2) Delete C:\WINNT\SoftwareDistribution folder;
3) Execute Microsoft Update (C:\WINNT\system32\rundll32.exe
C:\WINNT\system32\muweb.dll,LaunchMUSite).

It didn't for me however, I'm still looking. It seems it might be that wu
cannot write to some DB used during the update process.

Resolutions

That doesn't work for me either Monty. I have contacted MS Support,
hopefully they can provide an answer for us.

Just to follow up this only started happening after we tried to use MU rather
than WU site.

RE: Microsoft Update Fails

Hi!
To resolve this problem, stop the Automatic Updates service on the affected
client, delete %windir%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\Logs\edb.log and
restart the service.

Check first ig you have a similar log error:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: ESENT
Event Category: Logging/Recovery
Event ID: 413
Date: 5/12/2005
Time: 2:46:16 PM
User: N/A
Computer: [computername]
Description:
wuaueng.dll (1280) Unable to create the log. The drive may be read-only, out
of disk space, misconfigured, or corrupted. Error -1032.

RE: Microsoft Update Fails

Here is what (finally) worked for me for error 0xC80001FE (on W2k SP4):

Step 1. Clean your Temporary Internet Files and reboot your system.

Step 2. Stop the Automatic Update service (Start>Run; fill in: services.msc
>OK; In the application that opens rightclick on AutomaticUpdates and click

Stop - stopping may take a few secs)

Step 3. Now delete or rename the folder C:\WINNT\SoftwareDistribution

Step 4. Restart the AU service (see Step 2, but click Start instead of Stop)

Step 5. Reboot your system.

Step 6. Run Windowsupdate.

If it works for you, save the procedure, as the same error may happen again
later.

Also check if you have enough disk space.
