Error 0x800401F0 guide: how to fix


  1. Update the OS. To fix the problem, Microsoft released the update KB2985461. Check if this update is installed on the PC.
  2. Re-registration of Windows installer. Press Win + R and enter two commands:
    • msiexec /unreg
    • msiexec /regserver
  3. Check the rights of the network folder. This is important in case the failure occurs when the software is installed and updated remotely. There should be no restrictions on the rights to the network folder in the NetworkService and System. Also, you need to install the required application in the administrative mode, specifying Adminpath – this often eliminates the error 0x800401F0.
