I am encountering this error on the Windows XP Update site. It occurs after the scanning of either Express or Custom Updates. I can find nothing on the Windows site relating to this error and Google shows a few foreign language replies. Does anyone have any idea how I can fix it?
One thing that I should add for anyone else following oldbeefer2's link there is an error in the instructions for getting to the SoftwareDistribution file. There needs to be a space between %windir% and SoftwareDistribution or the folder isn't found.
Lettervanman - yes it worked for me and my wife's (networked) computers. Updates are OK now.
oldbeefer2 - I was wondering why Google didn't work for me and then thinking back I believe that I tried MSN Search followed by Dogpile. Neither of them showed your link. Next time I'll try Google first.
