getting Removeservice error 0xc800042d in WUA RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    I am getting error 0xc800042d while doing an offline scan / update of a windows vista ( also in xp machine ). 

    This error is related to store data limit and tried to rename softwaredistribution folder and doing an update once again. Still it doesnt vanish. 

    Is there any other reason WUA would throw the same error ? Also tried re-registring the wua dlls but to no avail.

    The same issue happens in windows xp sp3 also.

    Any pointers would be helpful. ( BTW I have tried all the solutions like fix it and all which are available through web search ) 

    thanks & regards
