We are using WSUS and this error is occuring on a W2K3 Ent server.

Symptoms:
1. When I double click on update globe, it disappears, the install Express
or Custom is not displayed, globe comes back.
2. The following error in WindowsUpdate.log
DtaStor FATAL: Failed to initialize datastore, error = 0xC80003F3
DnldMgr FATAL: DM:CAgentDownloadManager::CheckAllCallDownloadStates:
GetSession failed with 0xc80003f3.
DtaStor FATAL: Failed to initialize datastore, error = 0xC80003F3
Report WARNING: Reporter failed to upload events with hr = c80003f3.
DtaStor FATAL: Failed to initialize datastore, error = 0xC80003F3
Report WARNING: Reporter failed to upload events with hr = c80003f3.
3. The following error in the ReportingEvents.log:
c80003f3 AutomaticUpdates Failure Software Synchronization Error: Agent
failed detecting with reason: 0xc80003f3

I've tried the following:
regsvr32 MSXML3.dll /s
net stop wuauserv
cd /d %windir%\SoftwareDistribution
rd /s /q DataStore
net start wuauserv

I've also tried stoping the WU service, deleting all the folders in the
SoftwareDistribution folder, and then restarting th WU service.

Can anyone help?

OK. I fixed this problem and here is how I did it.

1. First, I again performed the following:
regsvr32 MSXML3.dll /s
net stop wuauserv
cd /d %windir%\SoftwareDistribution
rd /s /q DataStore
net start wuauserv

2. This resulted in the following errors in WindowsUpdate.log:

0x80240013
0x8024400a
0x80240017

3. Next, I registered the following:

regsvr32 softpub.dll
regsvr32 initpki.dll
regsvr32 mssip32.dll

4. Then I recieved the following errors in WindowsUpdate.log:

0x80070008
0x80240017

5. Finally, I performed the following:

Stopped the Automatic Update service
Renamed the SoftwareDistribution folder in C:\Windows to
SoftwareDistribution.old
Started the Automatic Update service.

Hope this helps someone in the future.

Superb! Great many thanx.

After many hours of trying MS's many small "fix-apps" back and forth without getting any wiser....I finally found an errorcode in the log that led me to this saviour.

Thank you.
