I cannot manually update MSE...I receive error warning 0x8007000d. I have tried rebooting numerous times and checking the firewall but I need advice from someone more knowledgable than myself. Thank You
Are you using a legal version of Windows? I believe that 0x800700d refers to a licensing issue (or rather an invalid one).
If you are using a licensed copy, please say and I will try to help further.
Tell me if this does any help, if not I will edit my post as I think of more ways to solve this.
Have u tried an in place install? If not, look here.
