Windows 10 Pro

We accidentally installed 64bit Windows on a machine and ran into this issue. Installed 32 bit and Windows Update successfully checked and installed updates. I had not seen this posted anywhere else so I thought I'd leave this here.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

I know this is an old thread, but so am I.

I just finished an install of Win7 HP 64bit, and ran into the the same issue the with error code 8024402F when attempting to run WinUpdate. What worked for me was to first update Internet Explorer from version 8 (which was on the install CD/DVD) to version 11. It was a lengthy process (I thought the PC had hung up, because the progress bar wasn't moving for over 10 minutes), and once the update had finished downloading, I was prompted to reboot the PC. Not only did it update IE to version 11, it also updated some other portions of Win7, because after the reboot, WinUpdate worked fine without errors.
