The installer encountered an error 0x80070005

The error ” The installation program found an error: 0x80070005 ” occurs repeatedly with Windows 10 users and we receive various requests. For this reason, we would like to go into the Windows 10 update error 0x80070005 in more detail below.

The original error message when installing Windows updates looks like this:

The installer encountered an error 0x80070005

The exact error message is:

Usually the error does not occur if you have the Windows updates installed via the integrated Windows Update function. The problem always occurs when you download an MSU installation file from the cumulative Windows update and then install it. The files are often downloaded from the Microsoft Windows Update Catalog Server and then stored on a central network drive. And that’s exactly where the problem lies.

The reason for the error code  0x80070005 is the storage location of the Windows Update MSU file . Please do not try to install the update directly from a network share, but copy the MSU installation file to a local data medium. It is best to simply place the installation file on the desktop or in a folder on your C: partition.

If you then start the installation of the Windows update from this local data carrier, the error message 0x80070005 no longer appears and the update can be installed without any problems.
