What can I do if I get the 0xc8000222 error in Windows 11?

1. Run the Windows Update troubleshooter

  1. Press the Windows key + I to open the Settings app, and navigate to System in the left panel followed by Troubleshoot from the right side.troubleshoot-menu windows 11 skype crashing
  2. Once you are inside the Troubleshoot menu, click on the Other trouble-shooters option.other-troubleshooters-option windows 11 skype crashing
  3. Now scroll down until you meet the Windows Update troubleshooter and click Run next to it.windows-update-run  the installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package 2203

When the troubleshooter has finished searching for errors, it will reveal the specific bug that has happened as well as instructions on how to fix it. It is critical that you follow the instructions given exactly as they are written. In case that did not solve the issue, we recommend trying Restoro that has more advanced capabilities than Windows built-in tools.

2. Perform an SFC scan

  1. Press the Windows + S key to open the Search bar, then type cmd, and right-click on the most relevant result to run it as an Administrator.cmd-search-admin gdi+windows error message on shutdown
  2. Type or paste in the following command and press Enter: sfc /scannow sfc-scan-windows-11 gdi+windows error message on shutdown

You only need to wait for the procedure to finish (which could take some time), then restart your computer to ensure that the modifications are applied. SFC will automatically detect and repair corrupted files and directories on your computer.

3. Use the CheckDisk tool

  1. Press the Windows key + S to open the search function, type in cmd, and right-click on the most relevant result to run it as administrator.cmd-search-admin kernel security check failure windows 11
  2. After the Command Prompt launches, type in the following command and press Enter: chkdsk C: /f /r /xchkdsk kernel security check failure windows 11

Another alternative is to use Check Disk to search for corrupt files, which is still another tool at your disposal. Because it is more thorough than an SFC scan, it takes longer to complete than an SFC scan. Once the process has been completed, restart your computer to finalize it.

4. Run DISM

  1. Press the Windows + S key to open the Search bar, then type cmd and right-click on the most relevant result to run it as an Administrator.cmd-search-admin kernel security check failure windows 11
  2. Type or paste in the following commands and press Enter after each: DISM /online /Cleanup-Image / ScanHealth DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealthdism-command  the installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package 2203

Relax and wait for the entire process to be done. You should keep in mind that the process could take up to ten minutes. Once you’ve done this, restart your computer to ensure that the changes are effective.

5. Perform a clean boot

  1. Press the Windows key + R to open a new Run box, then type or paste in msconfig and hit OK.msconfig  gdi+windows error message on shutdown
  2. Then navigate to the Boot tab and check the Safe boot option under Boot options.safe-boot-boot   gdi+windows error message on shutdown
  3. Now go to the tab that says General and make sure that Selective startup radio button is checked but uncheck Load startup items under it.general-startup-clean   gdi+windows error message on shutdown
  4. Select the Service tab and check the box Hide all Microsoft services then click Disable all to disable all the unnecessary services which might cause issues.disable-all-startup   gdi+windows error message on shutdown
  5. On the Startup tab, click Open Task Manager and disable all the startup items which are enabled.task-manager-startup   gdi+windows error message on shutdown

Following this, you may begin the rebooting procedure. Windows will take care of everything; all you have to do is sit back and wait for the procedure to be completed.

What does .Net do?

The Microsoft.NET Framework is the technology on which all other Microsoft technologies will be built in the future, and it is the foundation for all of them. .net  the installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package 2203

It is a significant technological change introduced by Microsoft in order to capture market share from Sun’s Java. Only VC++ and Visual Basic were available to Microsoft to compete with Java a few years ago, but Java was quickly gaining ground in the competition.

With the world growing increasingly reliant on the Internet and Java-related products becoming the preferred choice for web applications, thousands of programmers have switched from Visual C++ and Visual Basic to Java. In order to restore the market, Microsoft announced the.NET Framework.

Microsoft, on the other hand, has a wonderful track record of getting off to a late start and catching up rapidly. This holds true in the case of .NET as well. As a bonus, several of Microsoft’s most talented engineers were assigned to a top-secret project known as Next Generation Windows Services (NGWS).
