How to Fix Media Feature Pack Error 0x80070490

When you use Optional Windows Features to install the Media Feature Pack Feature-on-demand component on Windows N or the KN Edition, the error 0x80070490 may appear.

The error 0x80070490 denotes “Element not found” which indicates a problem in the COMPONENTS registry hive or missing files in the components store.

When you use DISM to install the package, the same error (decimal: 1168 hex: 0x80070490) appears.

DISM /Online /Add-Capability /CapabilityName:Media.MediaFeaturePack~~~~

Which outputs:

Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
Version: 10.0.22621.1

Image Version: 10.0.22621.2283
Error: 1168
Element not found.

The DISM log file can be found at C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log


To resolve the issue, remove the Media Feature Pack package and then reinstall it. To do so, open an admin Command Prompt and run:

dism /online /remove-capability /capabilityname:Media.MediaFeaturePack~~~~

Reboot Windows.

After restarting Windows, use Windows Features in Settings to reinstall Media Feature Pack. Alternatively, run the following command.

dism /online /add-capability /capabilityname:Media.MediaFeaturePack~~~~

That should resolve the issue.
