Windows Update Fixit but it gives error when i try to istall.

You are trying to resolve the Windows Update error 0x8DDD0004 using a Microsoft Fixit utility. but an error occurs when you try to run the Fixit tool. If this is correct, which tool are you using? Possibles include

 

support.microsoft.com/mats/windows_update/

 

support.microsoft.com/kb/971058

 

Before continuing in this direction, check whether Service Pack 3 is installed. To do this, click Start, right-click My Computer, and click Properties. The installed service pack is reported on the General tab under System. If Service Pack 3 is not shown, download and install it.

 

www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24

 

Restart the computer twice after installation completes, then visit update.microsoft.com to see if the error still occurs.

yes i tried the link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/914224 before because i did it with microsoft forum.

I did step 1 but i didnt resolve the problem.So in case of failure i had to go on with step2 and step4 but i stopped because those steps are to difficult for me to run.So i see its not so easy to be helped because my knowlegde is rather low.

Renaming SoftwareDistribution Folder to OldSD

Nome duplicato o impossibile trovare file

The SoftwareDistribution Folder could not be renamed to OldSD because a folder by that name already exists. Either SoftwareDistribution had been renamed before running the batch file, or the batch file was run more than once.

 

Right-click Fix914224.bat and click Edit. Change the line

 

Ren %SystemRoot%SoftwareDistribution OldSD

 

to

 

RD /S /Q %SystemRoot%SoftwareDistribution

 

The change deletes the folder instead of renaming it. Also remove >NUL from the lines

 

Net Stop wuauserv>NUL

Net Stop BITS>NUL

Net Start wuauserv>NUL

Net Start BITS>NUL

 

Click File, Exit, and Yes to save the change. Double-click the file to run,

 

In your reply, please include any errors reported. I'm concerned about "Servizio aggiornamenti non avviato" ("Update service not started").
