Windows Update hellllp


Recommended Posts

Ever since I have gone SP1a and have redirected my progfiles dir to the d: drive I am no longer able to DL, Windows Updates off the MS site. I receive an error of 80070052 looking this up on the help does not resolve my problem.

Also, the automatic updates service fails to start with an error.

It's really winding me up atm

any help appreciated.

Do a KB or Google search for the error number. My guess? Switching progfiles to D:\ is the culprit. Default for windows update is C:\Program Files\Windows Update.

Maybe put that directory back whence it came?

ok, so ive put the files back and am now getting the problem with the update now button not working. I have tried all what MS say on their site and still no joy.

It does mention that microsoft are still researching this problem.

I suppose for now I'll just have to get the files off the hotfixes thread.

BTW, it all works hunky dory on a vmware session with the same build but all files back to the c drive.

Me's thinking it could be a dodgy registry setting somewhere
