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

I am having problem installing .NET Framework 4.0 in my wife’s notebook.

After digging Google, I came across the solution:

Download .NET Framework 4 Standalone Installer, before installing .NET Framework 4.0, perform below steps:

  1. Run command prompt as Administrator
  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. Install .NET Framework

Finally, I’m able to install .NET Framework ~~~
