Some customers reported that they got error 0x80080005 on their WSUS client. A simple fix is adding the following registry key:


Key = RegistrySizeLimit

Type = DWORD

Value = 4294967295


If the above solution can not resolve your failure, please send me the log files.

  • No need to edit registry. Give "Everyone" permission. When done. Remove "Everyone" permission. Worked for me.

  • Give permission to everyone? That is one lame answer.Describe the process Einstein!

  • mine is windows 7 64bits ... it takes only initial 6 digits in value for DWORD Type. It takes entire digit in Qword type... i tried both still no luck

  • Hi Sanju, you need to use decimal on the left, or you can type in ffffff for hexadecimal.

  • Sorry I mean decimal on the right or 8 f for hexadecimal.

  • Danma,
