Windows 8.1 Store Error 0x80072ee7 Fix?


The 0x80072EE7 error code may occur if the client computer cannot find the correct IP address when it tries to resolve a URL for the Windows Update Web site or for the Microsoft Update Web site. This error may occur if the Hosts file contains a static IP address.

To resolve this error, examine the Hosts file. (This file may also be named Hosts.sam.) Make sure that the file does not list any static IP entries for the Windows Update Web site or for the Microsoft Update Web site.

The Hosts file is located in the C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc folder. To view the Hosts file, you may have to associate the file with Notepad. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Right-click the Hosts file.
  2. Click Open With, and then select Notepad from the list of programs.
If the Hosts file contains a static IP address that is associated with Windows Update or with Microsoft Update, comment the entry by adding the # sign at the beginning of the entry. You can also delete the whole line and save changes to the Hosts file.

Note Programs, such as Web accelerators, DNS accelerators, DNS caching utilities, and Spyblockers, can add static IP entries for the Windows Update Web site or for the Microsoft Update Web site to your Hosts file. This scenario can cause Windows Update or Microsoft Update to fail.

Vista won`t update has 8024404 error


Try reboting your computer, if tha does not work, Go to Microsoft.com and contact customer service and tell them about your problem. Also, you can try to download Service Pack 2 or 3.
Before you do this, you may want to try to go to the Control Panel and click on the System and Security option and click on "Find and Fix Problems" and follow instructions, or click on the System and security and check the :Action Center" or "Windows Update."
Explore this page, you will probably find a solution for your problem. You can also try to "restore your computer" to an ealier time. The one you will find under the "Action Center.
I hope that this info will help you to resolve your problem.

    Microsoft updates


    Most of the time when updates cannot be installed, is because you have installed a file that is newer than the one provided by Microsoft, or you already have the "update" and Microsoft gives you the error.

    Essentially when your computer communicates with the Windows Update website. It uses TWO technologies called:
    Active X - to interact with the Microsoft site. The first time you visit the Update website, using your profile, you are asked if you will accept the Windows Update Control Package (the Active X control) onto your machine.
    SSL (Secure Socket Layer) - A method of data encryption used by Internet Explorer.
    Now this general error message 0x800A138F, that some folks get when they visit Windows Update, has been around for a while. BUT, when the MSBlast virus was unleashed Microsoft changed a few things at the main update website. One of them was to use Akamai for additional bandwidth and this connectivity is exclusively using HTTPS (SSL) for the downloading of the update catalogue. It is since then that we have seen an escalation in the number of 0x800A138F error messages!
    The following steps will help many of you... BUT
    What would be REALLY helpful to anyone trying to support you, is if you go to the "Windows Update Log" and look for any "Errors". This gives a clearer indication as to the exact nature of the problem. (The 0x800A138F error message is a "General" error THE real error number is in the log. A list of possible error messages is in a table at the bottom of this page.)
    The windows update log is in the following places:
    C:\Windows\Windows Update.log (Win XP & Win98/Me)
    C:\WINNT\Windows Update.log (Windows 2000)
    Just copy and paste the above in Windows Explorer to open the log file...
