Windows 10 Official/Production: Cumulative Update 10240.17113 (Threshold 1, non-Insider)

Question: Windows 10 Official/Production: Cumulative Update 10240.17113 (Threshold 1, non-Insider)

In a surprise move (to me at least), Microsoft has issued a Cumulative Update to holdouts who turned down the November 2015 Update or those who were unable to Update due to technical issues. This Update offers a whole package of fixes and improvements. Microsoft pushes out batch of cumulative updates for Windows 10 | Windows Central Issues? Bugs? Solutions? For all things Build 10240.17113 of Windows 10. Discuss it here. Basic tip

You absolutely should back up these things just in case, but you shouldn’t need to use that back up. Keep My Files requires a certain amount of free space on your device. As such, it may be unavailable to you if your device is stuffed with a lot of files.

Preferred Solution: Windows 10 Official/Production: Cumulative Update 10240.17113 (Threshold 1, non-Insider)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have tried updating a desktop and a Surface Pro 4.... Desktop has updated but I cant install any extensions in Edge, I see it says there was a problem , try reinstalling the extension, did that and still no joy, rebooted, still no luck.
Surface Pro 4 is stuck on spinning gear with a blank black background for last 45 minutes, any advice?
EDIT: Possible fix for no extensions in Edge.....Go to Start>Settings>System & Apps and Features then uninstall the extensions (will be greyed out) and try again through Edge/Store - should work.
Potential fix for no Cortana...This is changinging registry value so take neccesary precautions, backup etc, solution was posted to a response on Microsoft site... I found the answer on another thread. It's a registry setting. Starting RegEdit, go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search, and change Cortana and Bing permissions from 0 to 1

I have a tablet with a 16G C drive. It is running Win 10 build 10240. Attempting to install the November Threshold 2 update. The update fails due to lack of space on the C drive. Even if I uninstall all programs on the C drive and delete everything possible, there still isn't enough space to do the install. I've attached an external drive and that's fine, but the update still says I need 5G of available space on drive C. The problem is that the Windows folder is about 11G in size. I have used Disk Cleanup and all the DISM commands, etc to reduce the size of the WinSxS folder...all to no avail! I'm a pretty cognoscente user and have tried to shrink and delete as much space as possible but it appears that the size of the Windows folder in build 10240 along with the ever expanding WinSxS folder prevents these small tablets to ever be updated in the future. Anyone know what to do? Am I stuck on build 10240 forever? Thanks

Answer:Win 10 build 10240 to Threshold 2 update problem on 16G tablet

You will need a secondary drive - USB or SD Card attached...

because when you update windows - windows needs a place to put the 11GB windows.old folder...

But being a 16GB SSD - I would also assume that your OS is running in Compact Mode (WimBoot)

Issues? Bugs? Solutions? For all things Build 10586.494 of Windows 10. Discuss it all here.Here is what's fixed in Windows 10 build 10586.494 July update for PC and Mobile
Note that this build was matched with Release Ring when it was published. Basic tip
If you're having any issues with your device, try a reset.
Settings > Update & security > Recovery > Reset this PC > This provides you with two options: 1. keep my files and 2. remove everything Keep my files
Does just as its name describes. If you choose the setting you can reinstall Windows 10 without having to back up any of the pictures, videos, music and documents that you have stored on it. You absolutely should back up these things just in case, but you shouldnt need to use that back up. Keep My Files requires a certain amount of free space on your device. As such, it may be unavailable to you if your device is stuffed with a lot of files. If you get an error message asking for more storage when you choose this option youll need to back up your files and choose the remove everything option. You could also delete any files that you arent using on your device and try the option again. This option will take longer than the other options. Remove Everything
Deletes every file, every setting from your device and gives you a blank copy of Windows 10 to work with. Youll need to add any files you have backed up to your device again

A Win 8.1 machine I built just last week already got the update notice from MS, and successfully downloaded and installed the official release.

Meanwhile, another machine that's been running Insider previews for months has yet to receive the notification. I understand it's a gradual rollout process, so I'm fine with that.

But both of them show as being 10240.

I have a few machines, and keeping track of them might be a bit of a hassle. How can I tell which machines have the officially-released Windows 10? I don't want to have a sudden surprise in October if one or more of them suddenly cease to function.

danielson said:

No, the Insider Preview will always be a development release. The code will equal the Win10 code for a while, but it will be updated with development code - a perpetual beta

MS will offer ISOs on the Insider Preview page just as it always has for the program - and you can create an ISO from the ESD ... same as always.

But to answer the question I think you're really asking: No you won't have Win10 install media, you'll have Win10 Insider Program install media. The difference is that when new code is developed for users to test, that will be installed through a flight branch - meaning an Insiders install will carry the risks of unstable and unfinished code.

Next ... is the release of the next build for Insiders -- if you choose to stay in the program. Might be something as early as next week, since there are already rumours about a Service Pack 1 coming out early August.

If you decide to leave the Insiders program, the current build will eventually expire.

Answer:I'm still using th1 10240 Core, that i received as an insider.

Officially you cannot upgrade from a beta version to the RTM. There is a trick to do it. Extract the Windows 10 setup files to a folder and then open the file cversion.ini inside the sources folder with Notepad. Change both numbers to your build, that is 10240 and save. Then run Setup which would allow you to upgrade from Insider build to Windows 10 RTM build 10240. Some folks are going to say that this is contrary to EULA and that you will have activation issues. The legal way, according to Microsoft, is to upgrade from Windows 7 or 8.1 to 10. But using this trick I have managed to upgrade my test PC from Insider Preview (don't remember build) to Windows 10 RTM build 10240 (and save a great deal of trouble to reinstall everything). If you don't have any important data and many applications installed, you could also do a clean-install.

If you have too many data to worth the trouble, upgrade it with this trick and then you can get the activation token if you install an earlier version of Windows on a spare disk or a second partition and follow this tutorial, if you want to do it according to EULA.

I'm a Insider member since Oct 2014, get all the builds till the official launch of Windows 10 last July.

A few days before the official launch my Windows 10 TP (build 10240) had a boot problem and gave me a UEFI boot error, since the Insider Program was locked and I can't get any Insider Preview build to work I had format my PC and install my Windows 8 Pro and follow the upgrade path to Windows 10. (Reserve a copy, wait for the update and install the Windows 10 (Pro) and activate with my valid Windows 8 Key, no hassles there.

Hello!

I have been a Windows 10 Insider since the beginning. My main "test" machine for the builds is on my Mac but in Parallels Desktop. I'm considering moving to Boot Camp instead and just use Parallels to boot from the Boot Camp partition if I need OSX and Windows 10 side by side for specific tasks.

My question is this: Will I still be considered an Insider (or rather, still activated) if I install a fresh new insider build on Boot Camp and just sign in to my MS account? I'm planning to use the ESD file that updated my build to 10240. Once that is done, I'll just delete my current VM. Just to be clear, I am not trying to migrate the Win10 VM itself to a Boot Camp partition. Since that in itself is quite a hassle to do and considering a boatload of hurdles to overcome.

Oh and please tell me if I posted this question on the correct category thread and move it accordingly if needed.

Thanks! ^_^

Microsoft Announces New Monthly Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Creators Update

Microsoft rolls out new cumulative updates every month on Patch Tuesday, including here not only security fixes targeting vulnerabilities in Windows 10 and installed Microsoft software, but also OS improvements and other tweaks refining the overall experience.

Today, the company announced that it would publish a second cumulative update for businesses running Windows 10 Creators Update, this time including non-security fixes.

Microsoft says that although it wants to release one such cumulative update every month (in addition to the security release on Patch Tuesday), there might be cases when more than a single extra cumulative update is shipped, depending on the bugs that it needs to fix.

These updates will be listed as ?Updates? in WSUS and Configuration Manager, with certain exceptions when critical issues affecting organizations are targeted, so the updates will be flagged as ?Critical Updates.?

Customers who use Windows Update for Business won?t have these updates installed automatically if options to defer quality updates are in place.

You can simply ignore these updates
The software giant explains that Windows 10 users getting these updates will be allowed to deploy them just like the updates that are shipped on Patch Tuesday, but at the same time, be provided with options to deploy each of them only to a subset of devices.

?This enables the organization to ensure that... Read more

Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 (KB4013429)

I noticed after recent update on all my windows 10 machines I do a disk cleanup & on the Windows Update Cleanup says 3.99TB of updates to clean up. I ran it fully took over 2 hrs & done & I rebooted the PC's & ran disk cleanup again & show 3.99TB again. Seems there is a bug or is there a fix to this? On one of my machines no restore point was made when I installed this update then i uninstalled the update & all is fine. The other I did a system restore & all good till that update goes through. I did a sfc /scannow & no issues. I Even went to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download deleted all manually & still same.

This isn't the first time, it's nothing to worry about>: Cleaning up 3.99TB space on a 100GB HDD?

By the way you really should wait a couple of weeks before running Update Cleanup, in case you later find the update buggy, and want to uninstall it, and try again. Update Cleanup also deletes the uninstaller for the updates.

Hi there

Is there any way to create an actual Windows 10 recovery drive with the latest builds (10166 / 10240).

I usually have enough backups but if I'm mucking around altering partitions etc it might be easier to use a Recovery drive to fix the boot if I hose something up.

The old method doesn't seem to work in build 10240 -- I'm sure some people will eventually need some sort of Recovery system.

I think the Recovery Drive should be good, if they've finished it? I tried it in 10162 and it either crashed (I think Shawn said he found the same) or got stuck in a loop.

Have you tried it in 10240? Does it work yet?

Hey guys,
I am running on Windows 10 Insider preview 10162 on dual boot with W8.1 currently. I missed the 10240 update when it came out because I wasn't using my pc for a while (it had broken down).
Anyway, my pc came back today and I logged in to W10 to download new updates but it didn't show anything new apart from a couple of language packs and the regular Windows Defender update.
Now I went through a couple of threads that MS has shut off the activation server for a while.
So how can I get on build 10240 now? 10162 has its own set of problems and I can't use it knowing that 10240 is somewhere out there...
- Any idea when they will opening the activation servers again?
- Any friendly, safe ISOs I can download?

Answer:Why am I unable to Update to Windows 10240?

Be patient, wait a week or so, and you'll be able to get the RTM version. For now, there will be no more access to downloading W10 updates until Microsoft is ready to release a more public version.
Hey, at least Insiders will get it first.

Was the 10240 build removed from Windows Update as they are preparing for the launch of Windows 10. I had a hard drive issue last week and had to reinstall from my Build 10162 ISO on my test machine. I did so on July 23, but since then, the only updates I've received through Windows Update are Defender definitions.
I was wondering if this was related to Microsoft pulling the ISO downloads from the Insider webpage, or if it might be related to the fact they disabled the activation server which is currently preventing me from activating build 10162.

Answer:Build 10240 availability from Windows Update

1. Press Windows Key + X on the keyboard and then select Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
2. Stop the BITS, Cryptographic, MSI Installer and the Windows Update Services. To do this, type the following commands at a command prompt. Press the ENTER key after you type each command.
net stop wuauserv
net stop cryptSvc
net stop bits
net stop msiserver
3. Now rename the SoftwareDistribution and Catroot2 folder. You can do this by typing the following commands in the Command Prompt. Press the ENTER key after you type each command.
ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old
ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 Catroot2.old
4. Now, lets restart the BITS, Cryptographic, MSI Installer and the Windows Update Services. Typethe following commands in the Command Prompt for this. Press the ENTER key after you type each command.
net start wuauserv
net start cryptSvc
net start bits
net start msiserver
5. Type Exit in the Command Prompt to close it and then restart the computer.
Make sure you are logged in to your Windows Insider account and select "Slow Ring" from the Advanced Options. After I did this, 10240 start downloading.

Hi Folks. Last summer I updated Windows 7 to Windows 10 Threshold 1 10240 on this old Asus P5LD2 motherboard based system I use for testing from time to time. I just updated it to Threshold 2 10586, and now I find I can't access BIOS boot settings anymore via the F2 key.

The only solution I can find on this refers to disabling Secure Boot in articles like this one or like this one that involves systems with a UEFI based BIOS.

Everything I can find refers to restarting Windows 10 and selecting:
Troubleshoot > Advanced Options: UEFI Firmware Settings
However there's no such menu when I go there since there is no UEFI on this old CSM based motherboard.

Has anyone run into this issue and perhaps found a solution?

Thanks for any feedback.

Answer:Can't access Asus P5LD2 BIOS after Windows 10 update Threshold 2 10586

The fast boot is the issue, even on non UEFI BIOS'.

One option is to boot up then "Restart" and on the restart you can access the BIOS.

I'm hoping somebody might be able to advise me on an issue I'm having. I'm not the most techy so I'm hoping I can explain it accurately.

It seems to be (from what I have discovered) linked to the Windows 10 Cumulative Updates.

Issue 1 began on the 28/01/16 as soon as Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3124262) was installed

I noticed that there was now a delay of about 30-40 seconds between switching the laptop on and the Windows log in screen appearing. During this time is the annoying rotating circle.
Then once my username and password were entered, there was another longer delay (complete with rotating circle) before taking me to the desktop.

Issue 2 began a few days later when Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3135173) was installed. I no longer had access to the windows start menu (I had to right click) or the Action menu. Issue 1 also persisted.

I did some googling and discovered that these issues may be because of the updates themselves (not installing properly) and found the page for a manual download for (KB3135173)

I'm just wondering if I did the right thing. I uninstalled (manually) both the Cumulative and security Updates for (KB3124262) and (KB3135173) and manually reinstalled (KB3135173) .

I now have access to my Windows start bar and action centre again but the slow start up persists. I'm just hoping I did the right thing. Was it ok to uninstall both the Cumulative and Security upd... Read more

Answer:Windows 10 Cumulative update issues - can anyone help?

I should also add that when it finally does get to the desktop.....there is yet another delay and spinning small blue circle before apps are launched. (they finally all flicker) I don't even have that many of them. It really seems like the OS is delaying as it is doing something.....and all of this suddenly in the past two weeks.

Microsoft is rolling out the first cumulative package of non-security-focused updates and fixes for Windows 10 one week after the company began making available to users the release-to-manufacturing (RTM) version of the operating system.

Referred to by some company watchers as "Service Release 1," the actual update package is officially known as KB3081424. (Thanks to The Verge's Tom Warren for a pointer to the KB.)

There's not a lot of information so far about what's in today's update, which Microsoft is delivering via Windows Update. The KB page says the following:"This update includes non-security-related changes to enhance the functionality of Windows 10 through new features and improvements.Windows 10 updates are cumulative. Therefore, this package contains all previously-released fixes (see KB 3074683). If you have installed previous updates, only the new fixes that are contained in this package will be downloaded and installed to your computer."

Microsoft Delivers Windows 10 SR1

I know what you?re thinking. SR1? Seriously? But it?s true: just a week after the initial release of Windows 10, Microsoft has delivered the first major update to its latest OS. Dubbed Service Release 1 (SR1) internally, this cumulative update for Windows 10 provides no new features but does offer a ton of small fixes.

?This update includes non?security-related changes to enhance the functionality of Windows 10 through new features and improvements, the Knowledge Base article for this update blandly notes. ?Windows 10 updates are cumulative. Therefore, this package contains all previously-released fixes (see KB 3074683).

Hello,
I'm trying to install the latest Windows Update - Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3189866) - however it's stuck at 45%. Restart won't help. Did you had this issue?

Here's how to install balky Windows 10 cumulative patch KB 318986

I'm seeing posts all over the web from folks trying to install the latest Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607) cumulative update. KB 3189866 is supposed to bring Windows 10 AU to build 14393.187, but reports say the installer gets stuck at 45 percent, 48 percent, 95 percent, and various other points along the way.

The problem's widespread, and Microsoft has known about it since shortly after the patch dropped. Since it's a cumulative update, there's no easy solution.

Microsoft will certainly figure out what's blocking the patch, but in order to fix it the company will have to release a new cumulative update. Unless it can find a magic way to modify a released cumulative update, the only solution is a new cumulative update that absolves the sins of the original. That's one of the big problems with these massive, one-way "as a service" patches. It's also a totally predictable problem, as I've been saying for almost two years.

I restarted it then ran the Disc Clean Up app
Which cleared all traces from the Disc
Then let it download and install, which took some time
Then it installed to 30% then Restarted then finished at 100%

Having same problem with v 1607 build 1066. Microsoft must have list of proper sequence of cumulative updates. Does such a list exist?

Last night my pc work 100%, I Installed telegram for windows and in the midnight the download of the Critical Update was installed in my Desktop, I restart my computer and when turned on after the bios I get a Black Screen, isn't my fist time: see my old post on reddit about the black screen:

Problem with a 'Black Windows' in Windows 10 Pro

I lost again everything that I installed because I recovery the system via a image backup. I'm sick of that black screen and lost every time my installed software's and documents, the problem appear after of install "Telegram" (I don't know) and when Windows download and installed in my system the Critical Update...

Thanks in advance

Answer:Black Screen after Install the 'Critical Update', Windows 10 Pro 10240

Turn off and turn on the computer again. Go to F12 Boot Menu, boot Windows 10 and click "Repair your computer" instead of "Install now". Because you already installed Windows 10 before the screen blacked out, you don't have to do it again. Just click "Continue" and continue with your set up.

This is how I did it...! Hope you find it helpful.

How to update windows 10 enterprise version 10.0 build 10240 to creators update without using media creation tool or upgrade assistant?

Relevance 60.68%

Hi,
I have a Packard Bell OneTwo S3221. It came factory installed with W7.

I upgraded to W10 last year after difficulty - upgrading to W10 via Windows update would not work, kept installing to a certain percentage then would reboot to a blank screen and freeze indefinitely, I needed to power off then on restart it would roll back to W7. This happened repeatedly despite trying all sorts - clean boots, uninstalling antivirus and updating drivers, etc.

I finally installed W10 using Media creation tool. Everything ran fine. But when the big update came in Novmember 2015 that failed to, in the same way as above, however all other monthly windows updates install fine.

Windows update never tried to push the Nov 2015 update on me again - I'm still on build 10240 now.

I was prompted to install the anniversary update by Windows update last week but that also failed in the same way as above. Download ok and begins installing fine, then at some point after 50% complete I get the blank screen indefinitely and have to power off, then it reverts back to W10 build 10240.

Having checked Packard Bell website my model is not supported by Packard Bell for W10, and they are not providing any drivers for it. This may explain the problems.

Can anyone suggest how to find out what the problem is and if there is a solution? I've tried looking in Update history for error codes, but there is none, it doesn't even show an attempt to install the anniversary update. Like i said every other ... Read more

Answer:Can't install Windows 10 Anniversary update, stuck on build 10240

Hi, simplest answer is avoid windows update and create the appropriate bootable medium or iso and use it as you did before. That way you can try again without the download.
As you know plenty of people have this sort of problem. Make sure you have at least 450Mb of unallocated space on the drive.

You could try reading the Windows update log...
https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/kb/902093

Note that the upgrade can introduce new issues for some (search the net), and some are delaying because of that. Older machines like yours could well exhibit such problems. So before you make this change, I recommend you create a disk image of your existing setup - a procedure you should do routinely anyway- to give another way of restoring your system.
E.g. Macrium Reflect (free) + its boot medium + external storage for images.

It's best to have a physical bootable medium as it covers all of:
a. if you need to repeat the installation
b. as a bootable medium for recovery options
c. in case you need to do an in-place upgrade repair install

without taking up disk space.

Hi

I joined the Insider Preview Program 4 months ago. I regularly updated all builds but since about 3 weeks, I do not receive any updates. I know that the last build is 10532 but I do not receive those updates. I contacted Microsoft this morning and they tell me that th1 10240 is a version for developers and that I am not supposed to have this version.

Since I installed Windows 10 Insider Preview over my Windows 8.1, what can I do to remain in the Program but moving up to version 10532?

I hope my question is clear (I'm French Canadian).

Thanks in advance for your response.

C?line

Answer:My Insider Preview version blocked at version th1 10240 professional

Is settings -> Update & Security -> Windows Update -> Advanced Options set for "Get insider builds"?

Sorry for my English, I don't speak French at all :-)

2017-09 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1703 for x64-based Systems (KB4040724) breaks Internet Explorer immediately after the update.

After first discovering this I verified by testing on 2 different Macrium backups, the oldest dating back to July 22.

I then tried uninstalling and reinstalling IE, with no effect.

Can someone please conform this, and have you found a fix?

I hope that's all the problems this update brought

Not for me it hasn't (I'm posting this with IE). This update includes an update to IE that was first seen in the Sept. 12th Cumulative Update KB4038788 Windows 10 v1703 Build 15063.608





Key changes include...
Updates to Internet Explorer 11?s navigation bar with search box....



Most of us survived that with only a minor cosmetic change, it put IE back to having tabs and the address box on separate bars, easily put back to a single bar. A few had problems with IE not opening though. See this (Solved) thread for descriptions and some solutions.

Microsoft Launches Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB4039396

Microsoft has just released a new Windows 10 cumulative update targeting only systems running the Anniversary Update (also known as version 1607).

Windows 10 cumulative update KB4039396 includes just two different fixes, and because it does not land on Patch Tuesday, no security improvements are shipped. What Microsoft wanted to do, however, is repair a bug introduced by a previous cumulative update and causing various problems on systems that installed it.

Microsoft explains in the release notes that this new cumulative update fixes Update History and hidden updates being lost on systems running Windows 10 Anniversary Update and where cumulative update KB4034658 was installed.
?Addressed issue where Update History and hidden updates are lost and a full scan for updates happens after installing OS Updates 14393.1532 through 14393.1613, including KB4034658. Installing this update will not restore past update history or hidden updates for users who have already installed the listed updates. However, this current update will address this issue for users who have not yet installed them,? the firm explains in the release notes.

No failed installs so far
A second bugfix reveals that Microsoft repaired a bug impacting the WSUS update metadata processing which could lead to error 0x8024401c on a number of client machines.

There are no known issues at this point and the cumulative update is supposed to install correc... Read more
