Error 0x80070057 when SQL Server communicates to a web server using stored procedure in Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012

Symptoms

Assume that you create a Transact-SQL batch that contains sp_OACreate stored procedure in Microsoft SQL Server. The Transact-SQL batch uses Microsoft XML Core Services (MSXML) to communicate to a web server. You execute the Transact-SQL batch. In this situation, the Transact-SQL batch fails, and you receive the error message that resembles the following:

0x80070057 -2147024809 One or more arguments are invalid.
0x80070057 The parameter is incorrect. Send failed POST.

Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 file information notes

Important Windows 8 hotfixes and Windows Server 2008 R2 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, hotfixes on the Hotfix Request page are listed under both operating systems. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows 8/Windows Server 2012" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to. The MANIFEST files (.manifest) and the MUM files (.mum) that are installed for each environment are listed separately in the "Additional file information for Windows 8 and for Windows Server 2012" section. MUM, MANIFEST, and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are very important to maintain the state of the updated components. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
