I have a windows 7 64 bit computer that is failing to install the update kb2918614. It has installed all the other updates.

Every time it tries to install, it fails with the error code 8024200d - it tries again every time I restart the computer.

I have tried renaming the C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\ to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution.old and installing again, but the same thing happens.

I have also tried running the "Windows Update System readiness tool", but that didn't work either.

Can anybody help me please?

The error 8024200d means WU_E_UH_NEEDANOTHERDOWNLOAD (The update handler did not install the update because it needs to be downloaded again.)

Download and install the Update with the help of the MSU file from the downloadcenter, instead of using Windows Update.
