I'm working on a Windows 7 Home Premium system (64-bit) with Service Pack 1 installed. Windows update is trying to install an update for KB2667402, but it's failing with error 8024200D.

A quick search turns up suggestions to run sfc /scannow (as administrator). I did that and it reports 'Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations'.

What's the trick to get this installed?

Found this thread. Sure enough, an update for KB2667402 was already installed. I uninstalled that and the new update installed without a problem. System is now up to date with no pending installs.

Do you mean update for KB2667402 was already installed? instead of uninstalled ? – Nifle Aug 27 '12 at 1:52
@Nifle Indeed. I would not have been offended if you had just edited to correct that. – Mark Johnson Aug 27 '12 at 22:16
Was lazy, that would have meant I would have to read the linked article, as my edit would have changed the meaning of your post considerably. – Nifle Aug 28 '12 at 6:26
