I have removed my [easyazon_link identifier=”1782176071″ locale=”US” tag=”wn0d5-20″] Hyper-V [/easyazon_link] feature from my [easyazon_link identifier=”0735697965″ locale=”US” tag=”wn0d5-20″] Windows 10 [/easyazon_link] box and at the same time I have lost my Remote Server Administration tools for Windows 10 that I am using to manage my [easyazon_link identifier=”178439307X” locale=”US” tag=”wn0d5-20″] Windows Server 2012 R2 [/easyazon_link] boxes.  I simply went to grab and download the installation file again for RSAT , tried to install it  and I got error message:

Windows Update Standalone Installer, Installer encountered an error: 0x80070422 ..”

Resolution is very simple:

  • Go to RUN and type services.msc
  • Once Services window  opens, scroll down and locate Windows Update
  • Make sure it is ENABLED and STARTED
  • Once the service is up and running, try reinstall the RSAT tool

Once the Windows Update service is back and running, you will be able to reinstall the RSAT for [easyazon_link identifier=”0735697965″ locale=”US” tag=”wn0d5-20″] Windows 10 [/easyazon_link] tools on your Windows machine.
