      Hi Abbas, this sounds like you’re using a mandatory profile. Are you using an administrative account on that machine? Have you followed all the steps exactly as in the article?

    pretty jacked up that this is what’s required to install this… Microsoft hasn’t fixed this yet?

    Spot on – thank you – worked for me too.
    My error code was ‘0x8024402C’ and Windows 10 ‘1909’, but this still did the trick – you may want to update your title since I don’t think this issue is restricted to specific versions of Win 10.
    Thanks again.

  50. Matt says:

    Still working with 20H2, thank you very much. I had error 0x80240438. Any idea why disabling WSUS allows this to install?

    • Nik says:

      I presume that if WSUS is used, you are not allowed to download any update, feature update, nor apply security or critical patch from sources other than WSUS.

    Nope — I stand corrected. Worked great. Turns out you actually have to close regedit before restarting windows update service.
