  • Hi,

    It seems the error code "0xc8000222" always means you have Windows Update issue when installing.

    Have you installed all WU successfully?

    If you cannot, please refer to this page to fix

    Or you can install this tool to fix first

    If you have fixed the Update issue and .NET 4 still fail to install. Please try these steps:

    1.) open "cmd"

     2.) type in command "net stop WuAuServ" (disable windows update)

     3.) Head over to Run ( Win+R ) and type in "%windir%" (this command line enable you to head over to your microsoft windows system folder)

    4.) Find the folder "SoftwareDistribution" and rename it as "SDold"

    5.) Then, go back the previous command prompt and also run the command line "net start WuAuServ"

    6.) At this point, try to install. NET Framework again.
