Unable to install.NET Framework - Error message 0xc8000222

December 2016



Issue


I am trying to install the .NET Framework without success. The following error message is displayed:
"0xc8000222".

Solution


This problem may occur if the temporary folder of Windows Update has been corrupted.
We can refer to the following steps to rename this folder:
1. Open a command prompt and type: net stop wuauserv
2. Click Start, click Run, type: %windir% and press Enter.
3. In the opened folder, rename the SoftwareDistribution folder to SDold.
4. Open a command prompt and type: net stop wuauserv
Try to install .NET Framework again.

Thanks to oussamodas for this tip.
