0x80040705 occurs when Windows Update continuously fails to search for updates and can’t install them. The other things responsible for this error are Windows Registry, Windows Filesystem, Virus, Corrupted files, Adware, Misconfiguration, Internet access, Windows update service, and the path of the installation is not found. This is due to the DirectX software. Some of the DX files cannot be overwritten, and this arises the error.

The steps to fix the error are:

  • Check the firewall

Click on Start and open the control panel. Open the network connection and Right-click on internet connection. Go to the properties and click on security, then disable the firewall.

  • Uninstall the previous DirectX application and reinstall the updated application.
