<cmd_output>
F:\>set /a c = 0x20
32
F:\>net helpmsg 32

The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

</cmd_output>


Look in the logs and find out *what* file "is being used by another process"?

Don't be surprised if you don't get a clear message about that,
even if you enable verbose logging. In that case you could run ProcMon
to supplement the log messages and allow you to infer the problem file
and from there discover which other process was using it (e.g. using
Process Explorer).

An alternative would be to just stop unnecessary processes (especially
interfering apps associated with security) and hope that that incidentally
prevents whatever is causing the problem symptom. An easy way to do
that (in part) is boot in safe mode.


Good luck

Re: WindowsUpdate_80070020 WindowsUpdate_dt000

I got the same error, so I turned off all the security to my computer
(firewall and antivirus anti-etc...) before downloading the update again and
it worked. Just turn everything back on again as soon as the
download/installation is complete... I tried to update in "safe mode with
networking", but it did not work for me...

another process" error message when you try to download an update from Windows Update or
