Windows Live Essentials – Installation Error WaitForCatalog or 0x800c0006

Here is an oldie but a goodie …
If you are receiving the error below it is because Microsoft has removed support and the download files the installer is looking for from the internet. You maybe also looking for Windows Live Writer, this is found in the same install package.

Installation Error: WaitForCatalog or 0x800c0006

The FIX:

Click on the link below to download a copy of the full installer package (its 131MB) to install on your PC. This works for Windows 10 as well. The download is virus free – so no risks!

DXC Technology acquires Microsoft Partner Sable37

4th April 2018

Today I can announce that global company DXC Technology has acquired Sable37 to boost it’s position as one of Microsoft’s leading global partners for Dynamics 365.

At the same time, DXC Technology has purchased UK-headquartered Microsoft partner, eBECS.

Beginning this month, both Sable37 and eBECS will be combined with DXC’s Eclipse practice as part of an effort to enhance the integrator’s standing in the industry and add scale to its digital transformation strategy.

For Sable37 managing director, Martin Wildsmith, the combination of the company with DXC Eclipse will position the business to offer greater service, innovation and opportunity for customers, partners and employees.

As we transform, I look forward to building upon our joint legacy of performance; bringing together the best of both companies under DXC Eclipse, Wildsmith said.

This is an exciting time. More information will follow in the coming weeks and months.
