Failed to install fbl_impressive 10130 with error 0x80246013

I'm running Windows 10 Technical Preview on my Surface 2 Pro.

Today I got a new update available, build 10130. Sadly when trying to install it I an error message stating error 0x80246013. First I tried a reboot with no luck, then after some searching the web I found a solution that might work.

  1. Stop the services wuausrv, cryptSvc, bits and msiserver
  2. Rename the following folders:
  3. Start the services again.



Of course I chose to do this in PowerShell since it gives me a reusable code snippet that I can use the next time I or someone I know faces a similar problem.

Here is the code I wrote:

$ServiceList = 'wuauserv', 'cryptSvc','bits','msiserver'
$FolderList  = "$env:windirSoftwareDistribution", "$env:windirSystem32catroot2"

$ServiceList | Stop-Service -Force
$FolderList | Get-Item -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | ForEach-Object {
        Remove-Item -Path "$($_.FullName).old)" -Recurse -Force -ErrorAction Stop
        Rename-Item -Path $_.FullName -NewName "$($_.Name).old" -Force
If((Get-Service -Name $ServiceList).Status -ne 'Running')
    $ServiceList | Start-Service

I gave it a try, re-downloaded the update and this time it worked without throwing an error!
