Windows 10 Service Registration is Missing or Corrupt
I have Windows 10 Technical Preview Build 10049 and I have been trying to install updates but it keeps having the error 0x8024402c, so I ran the Windows Update troubleshooter, and it told me that the service registration is missing or corrupt. I can't
find a solution that applies to me since I have a tech preview of Windows 10., so it would be great if somebody could help me. Thanks!
