Solving: Failed to install .NET Framework 4.0 with Error Code HRESULT: 0xc8000222

I am having problem installing .NET Framework 4.0 in my new notebook. Without any descriptive error message (this is what Microsoft always does!), there is no choice but to find the solution come out by non-microsoft guys.

Here come the solution:

Before installing .NET Framework 4.0,

  1. open cmd
  2. type in command "net stop WuAuServ" (disable windows update)
  3. Go to Run (you can do this by pressing Win + R) and type in "%windir%" (this command let you go to your windows system folder)
  4. Find the folder "SoftwareDistribution" and rename it as "SDold"
  5. Then, go back your previous command prompt and run the command "net start WuAuServ"
  6. Now, try to install .NET Framework again

  9. i have been trying to install micro-soft .net framework 4 ,during the installation it stops installing and shows the error HRESULt:oxc8000222 .i have tried your instruction, i entered the command net stop WuAuServ ,it returns Access is denied ,but am the administrator of my pc. please help me.Waiting for your reply

  10. Clarence, you have to open Command Prompt using Run as Administrator.
    Type ‘cmd’ into the Start menu and then right-click the only option and ‘Run as Administrator.’

    Good Luck,

  11. I follow the steps.. but when i am renaming the SoftwareDistribution it says that “The Action can’t be completed because the folder or file in it is open in another program.”
    But i didn’t open the folder and surely that WuAuServ stops successfully. I tried to stop again the service and it says it’s already stops. What should i do?
