    Windows Update fails with an error code 80096002 in Windows 8

    One of my friend has installed Windows 8 enterprise version in his computer. We were upgrading the PC with latest updates for Windows 8; we got an error code 80096002. We tried various methods but we cannot get the operating system upgraded with the latest content. All we got was the same error over and over again. Can anyone tell why this problem is occurring in Windows 8 enterprise version and how do we get the system upgraded with latest upgrades?

    Windows 8 enterprise version is designed to be used on the computer for a short period of time only. I don’t think that it will have any updates since it will be expiring in few days anyways. I think you must be trying to upgrade the content for some other version of Windows 8 for enterprise version. If you are trying to download and install updates for different version of Windows 8 in enterprise version, you are bound to get such error. My suggestion is that now RTM version is out; you can purchase it and use it if you want to have an updated system. Also this Windows 8 RTM version can be upgraded into Windows 8 Pro after release of retail version.

    I think that this problem of updates in Windows 8 enterprise version is that this operating system must be failing to register the components. I think that you must run a patch that I have attached with this post. You will need to run this .bat file on your system as an administrator. It will reset all the major components responsible for updating Windows 8. It will also register the BITS file which will help you for upgrading of the Windows 8 components.
