Problem

Running Windows Updates on XP and it has downloaded a bunch of updates but refuses to install them. It just whips through them all, announces they've all failed due to a problem on your computer, and offers to dump you into a useless "troubleshooter".

Diagnosis

There is a WindowsUpdate.log file in your %winnt% directory (usually C:\Windows). Look through that.

Solution for 0x80004002

Press Start, then Run.

Type in

REGSVR32 WUAPI.DLL
and hit enter, you'll get a little popup saying DllRegisterServer in WUAPI.DLL succeeded.

Repeat that step for these below..

REGSVR32 WUAUENG.DLL
REGSVR32 WUAUENG1.DLL
REGSVR32 ATL.DLL
REGSVR32 WUCLTUI.DLL
REGSVR32 WUPS.DLL
REGSVR32 WUPS2.DLL
REGSVR32 WUWEB.DLL

Then try Windows Update again.

This worked for me. Allegedly it will work for error 0x8024400D as well.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
