Hello everyone, since I purchased my laptop three years ago, I had been using Windows 7. A few months back, I recently received an upgrade to Windows 10 at zero-cost, and hence I decided to use it. When I tried downloading it, this error code 0x800700b randomly popped up. What should I do next?

Error code 0x800700b is caused if the system files get damaged, and the reason for this damage can be an incomplete installation or uninstallation of any software. There are quite a number of solutions to fix 0x800700b.

Method 1: Reset transaction log of the Windows file system.

  • Go to Start and search for “cmd.”
  • Right-click on the cmd icon and click on “Run as administrator.”
  • Type whatever you see in the picture below as it is, and press Enter.
  • Before trying to install anything again, you must reboot your computer again.

Method 2: Fix it using System file checker (SFC):

  • Again, open the Command prompt (black window) with admin rights and type the command that you see in the picture below as it is. The scan will take some time to get completed, and you can then close the Command Prompt screen.

If you are in the process of downloading the upgrade for Windows 10, check first if your computer is compatible with the new operating system. You need to check the system requirements and verify that your hardware is compatible.

To install Windows 10, your computer should have 1 GHz or faster processor, 1 GB RAM for 32-bit and 2 GB RAM for 64-bit, 16 GB free space for 32-bit and 32 GB free space for 64-bit, Microsoft DirectX 9-compatible video card with WDDM 1.0 driver, 800 x 600 minimum screen resolution, and internet connection for updates.

On the other hand, if you receive that error when starting a program after upgrading to Windows 10, you need to uninstall and reinstall all affected programs. This is a common problem with programs after upgrading particularly with Microsoft Windows 8. You also need to check if your existing programs are compatible with Microsoft Windows 10.
