Question Manual Windows update failed on newly install Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 Std. x86

Hi All,

I'm now experiencing a very hard to understand situation, this is happening on my newly reinstall Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 Standard on 32 bit platform.

I've installed SP2 and IE 8 manually and then initiate the Windows Update from the website but it always failed, see the following attached log.

Have a look in your event logs.

You should hopefully see some errors. What are they.

Hi Wullieb1,

Finally I've found the solution,

I managed to stop the WUAUSERV service and then delete the content of "C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\Download" the download is now working fine from now on.

Question Re: Manual Windows update failed on newly install Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 Std. x86

here's the command details:

Code:
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>net stop WUAUSERV
The Automatic Updates service is stopping.
The Automatic Updates service was stopped successfully.

Delete manually the content of C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\Download

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>net start WUAUSERV
The Automatic Updates service is starting.
The Automatic Updates service was started successfully.
Hope this can be a blessing thread for everyone in the Internet

Cheers.
