Re: Vista Update error message 80245003

Error message when you try to install updates by using the Windows
Update Web site: "0x80245003"
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/919749

After cleaning out the SoftwareDistribution folder, download the latest
version of the Windows Update Agent :

For 32 bit [x86] versions of Windows :
http://download.windowsupdate.com/v7...gent30-x86.exe

For 64 bit [x64] versions of Windows :
http://download.windowsupdate.com/v7...gent30-x64.exe

Save the download, do NOT run it.
When the download is complete, close the browser and any other open
programs.
Now install WindowsUpdateAgent30-xXX.exe [XX represents either x86 or x64]

Try Windows Update to see if the updates can be installed.

Access is denied.

I tried to fix the same error in the same way, and guess what... I got the
same message.
I think it a shame that Microsoft are not able to send out a fix for this.
Sorry I cant be of any help....(bit like Microsoft!)

Because you are using Vista, when you launch the Windows Command Prompt
window, you must right-click the icon for cmd.exe and "Run As..." an
Administrator.

System error 5 - Access is denied

This is a permission issue. If the net view command fails with a "System
error 5 has occurred. Access is denied." message, 1) make sure you are logged
on using an account that has permission to view the shares on the remote
computer.
2) Need to cache credential: logon the same username and password on both
computers or use net net use \\computername /user:username command.
3) Make sure the Netlogon service is running.

This was a response given in previous posts regarding the same error that
did work for me:
Rename the SoftwareDistribution folder (it will be recreated next time you
visit WU again)
You will lose your history but that's not important.

Click Start, Choose Run.
In the Run box, type services.msc.
Click OK.
Right-click the Automatic Updates service.
Click Stop.
Stopping the service will take a moment.

Rename the "SoftwareDistribution" folder:
a. Click Start, click Run, type %systemroot%, and then click OK.
b. Right-click the SoftwareDistribution folder, and then click Rename.
c. Type SoftwareDistribution.old, and then press ENTER to rename this folder.

Click Start. Choose Run.
In the Run box, type services.msc.
Click OK.
Right-click the Automatic Updates service.
Click Start.
Starting the service will take a moment.
Finally if you want to force a detection cycle in AU then close IE
Now click on Start and select Run
Type wuauclt.exe /detectnow in the Open box and click OK
Try the WU again

If you need to reinstall the ActiveX controls (because they may have become
corrupt):-

Follow this article -
The Windows Update Web site and the Microsoft Update Web site do not scan
for updates when
you repair a failed installation of Windows XP Service Pack 2 or of Windows
XP Service
Pack 1
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/916259

Note: WU Client 3.0 - Windows Update Agent
http://download.windowsupdate.com/v7...gent30-x86.exe

or for the 64 bit versio
http://download.windowsupdate.com/v7...gent30-x64.exe

More information about the new Windows Update Agent:
When you use Automatic Updates to scan for updates or to apply updates to
applications
that use Windows Installer, you experience issues that involve the
Svchost.exe process

Re: Vista Update error message 80245003

Hi Robin,
I am having trouble with what you posted. I think I need the "How to run a
computer for dummies" book. :)
Ok let me see if I am doing this right,
I followed what the workaround said in #1, I got to the page after I hit run
cmd. Now up in the left hand corner is that where you are telling me to right
click on the cmd.exe image? Or where do I find it? I tried R clicking on it
and theres nothing there about "Run As...".

I don't have a copy of Vista to check the exact key-strokes, but you need to
follow something like this sequence:

Click on Start
Click on Programs or All Programs, whatever it is called in Vista
Click on Accessories
You should now see "Command Prompt"
Right-click on "Command Prompt" and select "Run As" and choose to run as a
user with Administrator privileges.
