RE: Windows Update for Vista error 8024402C

Hi Alexandra,

Same problem. No fix found. I am also getting some driver problems with USB
based disks. It looks like it tries to connect to WU, fails and hence won't
load the driver. Very frustrating.
Good luck.
Cheers,
Brian

RE: Windows Update for Vista error 8024402C

I think I ll wait until I come back to the Office tuesday, I think there is a
GOP problem I ll ask the admin to put my laptop out of it.

I tried to load any update from the Windows Update Catalog and it doesn't
work actually for Windows Vista. I think Microsoft and all the third party
are ready for the 1st of February 2007 and not before.

I have a the soundcard not working well too

Cheers
Alexandre

RE: Windows Update for Vista error 8024402C

After 5 weeks intermittantly troubleshooting the Windows Update 8024402C
error I finally fixed it. I noticed in the Windows Update log that the
computer was trying to get its update from httP://sussrv and not
http://update .microsoft.com. Also noticed that on the Windows Update window
it said You receive updates: Provided by your system administrator, which was
not the case.

I remebered that this problem did not occur until I joined the domain so I
started to look at the GPO's more closely than I did before. In Active
directory Users and Computers>Right click on Domain>Properties>Group Policy
Tab> there was a default domain policy.

I opened the default domain policy up and selected Computer
Configuration>Administrative Templates>Windows Components>Windows
Update>Specify Intranet Microsoft Update Service Location was set to enabled
and in the windows was the setting http://sussrv. I set the policy to Not
configured and updated the domain security policy and restarted my computer.
I then was able to perform the Windows Update with no issues and the You
Receive Updates section had changed.

I first had ruled out any DNS issues by running an NSLOOKUP against
update.microsoft.com, proxy or firewall setting issues. Bottom line is to
look at the Windows Update log and see why it cannot receive updates.
