The PC is not connected to the network: This error code may be caused when a user attempts to perform troubleshooting over the Internet without being connected to the network. In this case, Windows determines that the conditions for initiating this repair are not met, so this error code is issued. To fix this, simply connect to the network before running the utility.
Time, date, or time zone does not match: It turns out that this particular problem can also occur when the time and date do not match. Many Windows utilities refuse to start when the system time and date do not match the server values. If this scenario applies, you can solve the problem by changing the time, date, and time zone of your PC to the correct values.
The utility is stored on the mapped drive: If you have downloaded the troubleshooting utility from the official channel and are trying to run it from the mapped drive, this problem may occur due to a Windows limitation that prohibits running MS signed executable files that are not stored locally. In this case, you can solve the problem by copying the utility to a local disk and running it again.
