Xerox® Desktop Print Experience App Install Error 0x800f020b in Windows Update

The Xerox® Desktop Print Experience App provides the user the ability to select additional features when utilizing the V4 print architecture to print from the PC.   Xerox has recently enabled automatic installation and update of this app through Windows Update, starting with app version 5.0 (7.192.8).

When a customer creates a print queue using a V4 driver for a supported device, Windows Update will download and install the companion application automatically.  Furthermore, when Xerox releases new versions of the Xerox Desktop Print Experience App users will receive the new version through Windows Update.  

Currently a bug in Windows Update results in some Windows 10 users seeing an “Install error – 0x800f020b” each time Windows checks for updates (typically once a day).   Note that this error does not hinder printing, or any other Windows Update functions, but we recognize it can be an annoyance.   

This issue was raised with Microsoft and has been fixed in Windows 10 version 21H2 – released on November 16, 2021.  Microsoft intends to also include the fix in updates of versions 20H1, 20H2, 21H1, and Windows 11 sometime in the first quarter of 2022.  The Microsoft updates that resolve this issue should be automatically applied through the normal Windows Update process when they become available.
