Updating windows receive an 646 error
Having a hard time finding any info on the internet about this error code I should add that windows will download the updates no problem.Its when it starts to install them, that I receive this error.Press Windows Key X on the keyboard and then select “Command Prompt (Admin)” from the menu. Stop the BITS, Cryptographic, MSI Installer and the Windows Update Services.To do this, type the following commands at a command prompt. •net stop wuauserv •net stop crypt Svc •net stop bits •net stop msiserver 3.Now rename the Software Distribution and Catroot2 folder. Now, let’s restart the BITS, Cryptographic, MSI Installer and the Windows Update Services.
I've tried the MS "fixit" both normal and aggressive modes - no joy. I realize this thread is from April 2016, but wondering if anyone has any suggestions, please ? Start with KB949104 and KB3102810 to see if there's a Vista version -- if they don't help, install the Vista versions of other KBs mentioned in there if you don't have them already. It IS something which MS did (or failed to do) for/to paying customers of older Windows versions.
I realize this thread is from April 2016, but wondering if anyone has any suggestions, please ? I set Vista to automatically download updates (but allow me to decide when to install). Whether they reduced priority of their update servers for the older Windows versions, did something to the those versions themselves on end-users' computers thru earlier Windows updates, or both, we can be sure that MS did SOMETHING.
It is in their own interest to have done so, and that is enough evidence for ME. That, coupled with FUDD (Fear, Uncertainly, Deception, and Doubt) tactics by MS about what might happen to our computers if we stay with what we have and do nothing, is intended by MS to nudge users to spend more of our hard-earned good money on either Windows 10 and/or on new PCs already containing 10.
In response to Hector2016 I found that too, but I checked and I cant find any certificate issue on the server. If you receive error “0x80096005”, the error occurs because the URL cache on the destination computer does not contain an up to date certificate revocation list (CRL) for the timestamp countersignature that is used to sign the update.
I am looking at the Certification store on the local computer and I don't see any expired certs that would be causing this. For error "0x80096005": If you receive error “0x80096005”, follow these steps to resolve the issue: Download and install signtool command-line tool from Windows SDK under following links: the Windows SDK Command Prompt as the same account that is used to install the Microsoft . Run following signtool command on the Windows SDK Command Prompt.
