DESCRIPTION


Error 0x80244019 translates to SUS_E_PT_HTTP_STATUS_NOT_FOUND – Http status 404 – object not found.


CAUSE


If you have URLScan installed on WSUS Server, then it might block *.exe downloads for WUA. Check URLScan logs under C:\WINNT\system32\inetsrv\urlscan.


WORKAROUND


If URLScan Tool is installed and set to block all *.exe files, then, the client computers (WUA) will not be able to download any of the patches or updates.


In order to correct this problem, you need to edit urlscan.ini to allow *.exe requests, and then restart Internet Information Services (IIS) or restart the WSUS server itself.


Edit the following in the urlscan.ini:

[Allow Extensions]
.exe


And remove “.exe” from
[Deny Extensions]


[Allow Verbs]
GET
HEAD
POST
OPTIONS
