Trouble with Windows updates - Error code 0x800f081f when trying to enable a .NET Framework RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I'm running Windows Developer Preview, and so far it's going great except for one issue I've been having with applications that rely on .net framework. Windows requests that changes be made and that it needs to connect to Windows update to make these changes, but cannot and comes up with error code  0x800f081f. I've also notice some of the Windows updates fail downloading.

    DFI LanParty 790FX M2RS

    Geforce 9800GTX+

  • Hi Andre,

    A few questions:

    1. Is Windows Update working for you? For e.g. can you install other updates.

    2. Are you joined to a corporate domain where updates are managed by your domain administrator using Windows Server Update Services (WSUS)?

    3. Do you happen to be behind a proxy server that requires authentication?


    Thank you.
