Windows Update 0x800A138F Error code

Asked By 200 points N/A Posted on -

Hi Everyone,

I currently installed an application in my office laptop. It is one of the tools we are using in order for us to process an order. Now, I noticed that my navigation and processing as a whole is a little bit slow. I do navigate other tools, but I can say, the other tools function on a normal phase, based on my laptop’s usual performance.

My office mates informed me that the tool would be best usable, meaning the tool will stop being sluggish, once I install the latest updates for Windows.

So, that’s what I did and another problem came into the picture. I am receiving this error, 0x800A138F, and the update would not finish.

Please help. My laptop’s operating system is Windows 2000 Professional SP3.

I will patiently wait for your comments and suggestions.

Some solutions that you can try:

  • Go on start menu –> run command and type regsvr32 iuctl.dll /u and press enter.
  • Now with the find tool, search for the following libraries: iuengine.dll iuctl.dll
  • Once you have found these files, delete them.
  • Now restart Windows and retry the Windows Update.

Check your browser language:

  • Go on the Tools menu, Internet Options and in the window that opens, click “Languages”.
  • Verify that is the same as the Windows update you use (English).
  • If it’s different, change it.
