Vista Business update problem error code 80070426 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows update does no longer work since 23-06-2008.

     

    It gives me an error message 80070426

    It seems te be related with the fact that the software licensing service is not running.

    I have tried to manually start it and get an error message

    0x80070005 Access Denied (in dutch)

    It does not allow me to reactivate my official version of Vista Business.

     

    I have also tried to install Vista SP1, but at the end of step 3 (more then 2 hours) it indicates that the installation was not successfull, and everything is removed.

     

    I have included the result of the WGA diagnostics

  • Hello TonM,

     

    In your Diagnostic Report it shows the error code "Online Validation Code: 0x80070426". This means that the Software Licensing Service has stopped. Vista uses this service to check itself and confirm it is Genuine. When the service is stopped, Vista is unable to confirm it's own Genuine status and may show Genuine or Non-Genuine. The fact that the Service has stopped is also, most likely, the cause of  other issues you may be experiencing (such as not having access to the Control Panel).

     

      Please try the first set of steps and if it does not resolve the issue, move on to the next set.

     

      The first set of steps are how to set the Software Licensing Service to start at each Vista Start-up.

     

    1. Click on the Start button and in the Start Search box type in:  services.msc

    2. Press the Enter key on your keyboard.

    3. The Services window should now open.

    4. Scroll down to Software Licensing, then right-click on it and select Properties.

    5. Under the General tab, click on the Stop button.

    6. Set the Startup Type to Automatic, then click Apply.

    7. Next, under Service Status, click on the Start button.

    8. Last, restart your computer.   

     

      The second set of steps are the Manual steps to Force Start the Software Licensing Service. Once you type the net start slsvc command and hit Enter, if you receive any error, then, for some reason, Vista is not processing the command correctly and the issue is larger than just a Software Licensing problem. In which case, I would suggest contacting Vista support at http://support.microsoft.com
     

     

    If you have access to the Start button:

    1) Click the Start button

    2) Type: cmd in the Start Search field

    3) At the top the Start window, you will see cmd.exe

    4) Right Click cmd.exe and select Run as Administrator

    5) Type: net start slsvc

     

    If you do not have access to the Start button:

    1) Click the option that launches an Internet Browser

    2) A Browser will open, type: %windir%\system32 into the address field

    3) Find the file cmd.exe

    4) Right Click on the cmd.exe and select Run as Administrator

    5) Type: net start slsvc

  • Dear Darin Smith,

     

    As you can see at the beginning of my message I have already tried the starting of the software licensing service manually. I have also indicated the error number and message that I received when trying to start the software licensing service.

     

    I did it again on your instructions with net start slsvc and get an error message (Translated from dutch)

    "Cannot start the software licensing service"

    System failure

    System failure 5

    Access denied

     

    I have been forwarded to this message thread after investigating all potential causes for my problem.

     

    I hope you are able to give me a new clue.
