Quick Post: Windows Update Error 13EC

February 11, 2016 Leave a comment

I know another Windows Update post. I’m just going through a backlog of stuff that I never published & just want to get it up here.

A while back I wrote about a very similar error when installing the .NET 4.0 Framework (KB982671). https://patrickhoban.wordpress.com/2010/09/29

When installing the .NET 4.5.2 Framework (KB2901907) you receive an error code 13EC.

1 13EC

If you try to install it manually you get an error that says, “An error was encountered. Unspecified error.”

2 13EC

If you watch the free space while installing the update you will see it drop down next to nothing.

3 13EC

I tried to free up some space by doing normal disk clean up (i.e. delete temp files, old profiles, etc.), shrank the WinSXS folder (dism /online /cleanup-image /spsuperseded). It got a little further but still no dice. Luckily it was a VDI so I could just “give” it more hard drive space.

4 13EC

I ran the update again & this time it worked.

5 13EC

As referenced in https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42642, this update requires 4.5GB of free space for both x86 & x64.

When checking for Windows Updates it fails with an error code 80244010.

From what I can tell it’s an intermittent connectivity issue (or firewall block, etc.). I had to click Try again a few times but then it worked.

To resolve the issue run a check disk. Be sure to select Automatically fix file system errors & Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors then click Start.

Error Saving MSP File in OCT

March 19, 2015 Leave a comment

When saving an MSP file in the Office 2013 OCT you receive an error that says, “Unhandled exception: NodeType get property called for OXmlNode with null interface”

oct_msp_error

This can happen if you have updated the Admin folder of you distribution point & are modifying an existing MSP file.

Run OCT again. Instead of opening the existing MSP create a new one. Then click File Import.

oct_import

Browse to your existing MSP file & click Open. Now make any necessary changes & click File>Save As & name it accordingly.

Exchange is So Sensitive

After demoting a Domain Controller you get an error every 5 minutes on your Exchange Server that says, “SACL Watcher servicelet found that the SeSecurityPrivilege privilege is removed from account SID.”

SACL_Error

Restart the Microsoft Exchange Active Directory Topology service (MSExchangeADTopology). Keep in mind this will also restart several other services that are disruptive to users so try to do this after hours.

As a side note to find which object the SID belongs to run LDP.exe & use the SID Lookup tool.

You’re not connected to the internet

The first time you or your users run OneNote 2013 they may get a dialog box that says, “You’re not connected to the internet. Your notebook will be created on this computer and will not sync to the cloud or to your phone.”

youre_not_connected

Unfortunately there is no Group Policy setting in the Office 2013 Administrative Templates to suppress this message. However it can be suppressed by using a Group Policy Preference to push a registry setting. The key if HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\onenote. The value type is REG_DWORD & the name is FirstBootStatus. Set the Value data to 0x1000101 or 16777473 in binary. Be sure to put a check by “Run in logged-on user’s security context” & type a description.
