    The 641 error suggests that:The server cannot allocate NetBIOS resources needed to support the client. this is mainly due to the lack of drivers as you are trying to update the software or install it that may be require an internet connection and due to lack of drivers windows 8 may not be able to connect to internet.Thats why you are getting this error.

    Hi,
    Perhaps the new software that you are trying to install are not at all compatible with this version of Windows 8. So first of all when you are trying to install it check the CD or check the website from where you are downloading that, if at all it is compatible or not. Next in the configuration of that software, check if any extra device, any extra memory space or any extra file is needed or not. Sometimes this happens with the 3D software Maya. Although it is very well compatible with Windows, but still there comes a lot of problem during its installation due to unavailability of proper RAM speed and disk space. So before installing that software, you need to find out if all these conditions satisfy or not in your machine.

    Method 1: Perform a clean boot and then check if it helps.
    Method 2: Run Microsoft fix-it from the link and then check if it helps.
    Method 3: Follow the link and run Microsoft Fix-it and then check if it helps.
