Windows 7 error code 0x80070422 during Zune installation error solution

windows error code 0x80070422Recently I was trying to install Microsoft Zune on my windows 7 PC to connect with my new Windows Phone 7 mobile phone in order to synchronise data of the phone with my computer. But I was not able to install the software after repeatedly trying the same for about three to four times.

Microsoft Zune just like Apple iTunes is a software application which is mandatory if you are using a Microsoft Windows Phone 7 OS mobile phone. This software helps you backup the data on your phone such as pictures, contacts, music, videos etc. And if you want to add data on the phone then also it can be done only with the Zune application.

I searched on the internet for an hour or so and tried many tricks but was unable to do so. So finally based on the tweaks suggested on the internet by various forums I came to the solution. So here’s how to get rid of the error code 0x80070422 and install the application successfully.

  1. Go to Start >> Run or press Win+R.
  2. Type services.msc and press enter
  3. Now a widow will pop-up. On the right hand side you will see a column name, under that select Windows Update.
  4. Right Click on Windows Update and select Properties.
  5. Under the general tab you will an option Startup Type. Click the drop-down menu and select Manual or Automatic and click Apply.
  6. And below it you will see service status. If it says “stopped: then click on the start button below it. And then click OK
  7. Now in Services.msc window find Background Intelligent Transfer Service. Right Click on it and select properties.
  8. Under the general tab you will an option Startup Type. Click the drop-down menu and select Manual or Automatic and click Apply.
  9. And below it you will see service status. If it says “stopped: then click on the start button below it. And then click OK.

Now try to re-install the Microsoft Zune application or any other application you were not able to install due the error code 0x80070422 in windows 7.

If you are using a pirated copy of the Microsoft windows 7 operating system then make sure that you are not connected to the internet. And after the installation of the application revert back to all the changes you did in the Services.Msc.
