  • Unable to download and install patches through windows update in windows 2000, Error number: 0x800C0002?

    The correct cause for this is that Extended Support expired for Windows 2000 on July 13, 2010, more than a year prior to the creation of this thread, and there are no more updates available for Windows 2000.

    0x800C0002 is an Invalid_URL error and it's being caused because the Windows 2000 client is attempting to access a non-existent AU/WU site.

    Prior to June, 2012, it's possible that this could have been a manifestation of an older AU client and resolved by downloading and installing the current WUAgent (v7.4); however, since the entire WU infrastructure was updated to the WUAgent v7.6 in June, 2012, and obtaining that WUAgent update requires a system to be running a supported operating system ... today it is flat-out impossible to obtain patches for a Windows 2000 system unless you're using a downlevel/unpatched WSUS v3 or WSUS v2 system that can accept connection requests from a downlevel WUAgent.

    What version of Internet Explorer do you have installed on this Windows 2000 machine?
