Windows Error Code 2147024894 BITS will not START RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am on Windows 8.1 & trying to install Windows 10 but it is failing on Error code 80246008.<o:p></o:p>

    I looked for a solution & found the 'Windows Update Error 80246008' page.<o:p></o:p>

    It says I should check that BITS is STARTED.<o:p></o:p>

    I then went into BITS - the 'Service Status' was = 'Stopped'.<o:p></o:p>

    I set 'Start type' = 'Automatic (Delayed Start)' & clicked START but it would not Start - I got error code 2147024894.<o:p></o:p>

    I ran the link on support.microsoft.com :- 'How do I reset Windows Update components?' & then tried to install updates again but got Error code 80246008 so tried to START BITS but again got error code 2147024894.

    My Internet Security is AVG.com - I do not want to stop it because my PC would be vulnerable.<o:p></o:p>

    Have you any suggestions how I can get BITS to START ??<o:p></o:p>

    I am not technical at all so will need simple clear instructions please !!! :-)<o:p></o:p>



    UPDATE - someone suggested I go into COMMAND PROMPT AS ADMINSTRATOR & type -

       net stop wuauserv

       net stop bits


       net start wuauserv

       net startp bits

    But when I typed 'net stop wuauserv' I got the error message 'ACESS DENIED'.

    So that did not work.

  • Hi there,

    do you the have following file in system32 - qmgr.dll?

    Try this:

    Net start bits
    sc config bits start= auto

    And do a restart.

    Afterwards try the following script as Administrator in CMD:

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    sfc /scannow
    findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >c:\windows\logs\cbs\sfcdetails.log
    net stop wuauserv
    del c:\windows\SoftwareDistribution /q /s
    net start wuauserv
    echo #### NTFS Transaction Manager Repair
    fsutil resource setautoreset true c:\ 
    echo #### Info:
    fsutil resource info C:
    echo MSI
    sc config msiserver start= demand
    Net stop msiserver
    MSIExec /unregister
    MSIExec /regserver
    regsvr32.exe /s %windir%\system32\msi.dll
    Net start msiserver
    sc config msiserver start= auto

    After it do 2 restarts and do it again.

    Good luck.
