Preferred Solution: Windows insider vs update advisor

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.)

Answer: Windows insider vs update advisor

Update adviser is to let you know whether or not your phone is compatible and for when MS/Carrier have the official WM10 update ready for your phone. Windows Insider is so you can preview pre release builds of WM10 on your device. Which ring did you choose? I updated my wife's 640 to the insider release preview ring for the .242 update(which will be more stable than the slow or fast rings) then removed her from the insider program so she'll get the next production release. I hope this makes sense, let me know if you need me to clarify anything.

In past week I update my L1320 from Windows Inside program. It's updated to Windows phone 8.1 update 2. But the problem is, insider program shows another update but it's now not updating. I tried on both cellular and wifi network but it only shows "update is available" but whenever I hits download button, progress remains 0%.. Plz help... What can I do now?

Hi folks,
I recently updated my Lumia 1520 to update 2 via windows insider trick. Now I pretty much want to receive normal updates that are pushed to my device in the future and not windows 10 TP and all. So can u guys suggest me what to do in order to receive normal updates? Currently the update setting shows windows 10 update ready to download... Is there any trick that can help me?
Thank you.

Answer:Some help regarding wp 8.1 update 2 (via windows insider app)

I believe you will have to hard reset the device since you aren't supposed to stay on Update 2. It was supposed to stay there for a little bit, then upgrade to 10 automatically. Erase the device to "forget" that whole plan.
However, there may or may not be a less destructive solution since while I know when the device is asking to install it's too late, but I don't know about asking to download.

Not a technical wizz so excuse my being a tad dim.

I have Vista (SP1) Home Premium 32bit and am thinking of updating to one of the Windows 7 64bit options.

I am currently reading the Clean install with a upgrade Windows 7 Tutorial that I shall probably print out when ready, but when I tried to download and use the Windows 7 upgrade advisor link it seems to take me straight to Windows 8.

I want to upgrade to 7 - is there still an Advisor link for this or did I not go far enough?

Answer:Windows 7 Update Advisor not there

Going from 32-bit to 64-bit ALWAYS requires a clean install.

MS is no longer providing links to the Win7 upgrade advisor - basically because they reckon that everyone should be using the Win8 version

If your machine is currently running Vista, then there is a very small chance that it will have problems running Windows 7. The only problem is likely to be drivers for 64-bit Win7.

Having said that, I note that the Dell site doesn't offer Win7 drivers for that model - which could mean one of two things....
either
1) Win7 is not supported
or
2) the drivers are already included in the basic Win7 install.

You should check with Dell to see which it is.

Anything else is going to be irrelevant, since your disk will be wiped during the install - so I hope you have good backups, just in case!

Hi,I have tried to use the the windows 7 update advisor on my computer but when i run the program, it will not pass the first screen when i click start scan. I havent a clue why this is doing this.Ive done a little google search and i have found Robthat an anti-virus can cause this to happen. I have searched for the .dll file the google search has mentioned but i cant find it.Could it be a virus that is stopping this to happen?Ive also downloaded another program but i cant get past the licence agreement screen for the same thing. The licence agreement screen is the first screen that loads up when starting the program.How can i solve this? I assume that both of these programs are not working because of the same reason but part of me thinks that this might be separate issues and it is just a coincident. CheersRob

Hello!
I am enrolled in the slow ring of the windows insider preview. I have a Lumia 640 . The internal storage available in it is 7.28 gb. To update, it requires 1.22 gb. I have removed all apps and documents I could have removed. Now only system does and the (uninstallable) Microsoft apps are left. How do i get the else required to update?

Im currently using 6.12 gb of 7.28 gb. It says i require 1.22 gb which comes around 6.06 gb. So i just need about 70 mb more space

Hi all,
I would like to run the Windows 7 update advisor but when I click the "start check" button absolutely nothing happens.

I googled for that phenomenon but only found entries saying that one needs to start this using "Run as administrator...", but this is on Windows XP, not Vista, and XP doesn't even have such an option. And my user-ID *IS* member of the Administrators group, so I should definitely BE running this with admin priv's.

Any ideas what could cause this and how to get this running?

Michael

Answer:Windows 7 update advisor does not start

If you have a special character in your login name (&, _, *, etc), then you must create a new user with administrator privileges that does not have any special characters. You cannot rename your account - this does not alter the account at all.

This has come up before. Please refer to this thread:

You'll wait a few months for a device from MS with similar specs. However, there have been several new models released that run W10M. If you're not particular about getting a microsoft branded phone, you could purchase one assuming it is available in your region
You could also test with insider after buying 640xl. But you'll have to do upgrade process carefully. Check the forums for guidelines

I like many others have been having a problem getting my Windows Update set up to get insider builds. Even though I had signed in using my Microsoft account, I get getting the "Fix me" button which gave me a message about stopping insider builds. I think I identified the problem. I did a clean install of 10162 on a spare drive as a stand alone system. Update told me I was all set to get insider builds. Then I reattached my drive with Windows 8.1 and set it up for dual boot. As soon as I did this I got the infamous "Fix me" button. I then disconnected the Windows 8.1 drive and update told me I was once again all set to get insider builds. Strange - when Update sees another windows install on my system, it disables insider builds.

Answer:Problem with getting Insider Builds thru Windows Update

Yup that is unfortunately what happens if you dual boot with another version of Windows.
I get exactly the same scenario dual booting Windows 10 and 7.
If I want to update Win 10 I have to disconnect my Win 7 drive then all goes well until I reconnect my Win 7 drive and boot up, then follows a sequence of CHKDSK.

Hi everyone,
Before heading off for the holidays I wanted to give a little bit of an update on how things are shaping up for Windows 10, especially since we don?t have a build for you this month. I know that some of you are disappointed that we didn?t release another build (though we know some of them escaped?.I?m looking at you 9888 & 9901?)* but now that we?ve announced our event on January 21st I can finally explain why we didn?t. We?ve been very hard at work putting together a great build for you that includes a bunch of new features and improvements. As all of those payloads came in we needed to stabilize code, fix any integration issues, and ensure all of the new UX is polished. We?re really focused on making the next build something that we hope you?ll think is awesome. In fact, just so that we have a *daily* reminder to ourselves that we want this build to be great, we even named our build branch FBL_AWESOME. Yeah, it?s a bit corny, but trust me that every Dev that checks in their code and sees that branch name gets an immediate reminder of our goal. We?re super excited to show you what we?ve been up to! Look for a follow-up blog post from us on where to tune-in to the live webcast on January 21st.

I have been having some ongoing trouble for a few weeks now, with a blue screen and the PC continuously restarting after booting up. I've done two or three system restores and created a new user profile at the suggestion of non-professional computery friends. Antivirus scans identified four files as infected with malware and quarantined them. After the most recent system restore, I seem to be OK and have rebooted successfully several times.

When I run Windows Update, it tells me my system is up to date. But if I open HP Total Care Advisor, it says I need to install a batch update to correct an error in connecting to the printer. I clicked on "Run Selected Updates" and the next dialog box said, "After running the following updates, please check the PC Action Center for additional updates as some must be ran individually." The typo ('ran' instead of 'run') was a red flag, so I tried alt+F4, and finally had to ctrl+alt+del to close HP Advisor. I have had no trouble printing.

Any thoughts? Thanks for your help!

Answer:WIndows Update vs HP Total Care Advisor

I guess I don't see the problem .

Microsoft critical updates are generated for the sake of system security.

Microsoft optional updates...are user preference items that have nothing to do with O/S security.

Microsoft driver updates...are best ignored, IMO. The best place to get updates for drivers...is the website of the system manufacturer or the component manufacturer.

I know nothing about HP systems and HP software...but I'm sure that they have documentation at their website...for any suggested downloads for the systems they make.

Hello, I've been trying for hours to get my HTC One M8 to run the Windows 10 preview, but I'm having some issues.
- As most people have suggested, I've hard reset my phone, not used a backup, then installed the insider preview and signed up for fast ring (I hear the newest build is great).
- Once I've done this and the phone has restarted and everything, I go to check for updates and.... nothing. Says my device is up to date.
- Tried resetting (twice), using the WP recovery tool, and still no updates come around.
Any suggestions? Could this have anything to do with my carrier (Verizon)? Am I out of luck? Thanks in advance.

You will not get an upgrade using the fast ring on the HTC, that is just for "supported" devices. You can get the very good 10586.218 release using "Insider Release" not "slow" or "fast" though. Not sure if "production" ring will get you anything either.

Hello all,

Real quick, I'm having an issue where I try to update from Build 15031.rs2_release.170204-1546 to the next rs2_release available via Windows Update. The update downloads, does the pre-install, boots me into the traditional blue screen of updating, finishes, then reboots me to get back into the OS. At this juncture, I am at a blue flag and white dot circle, which has stopped spinning (it spins for approx .75 seconds) and halts, machine stays in this state ad infinitum. I can reboot it, at which point it goes back to the same state. If i shut down, then power back up instead (cold boot), the machine reverts the upgrade and goes back to the previous build and everything is honkey dorey.

Thing 1) I do not have a wireless USB mouse/dongle. Please don't recommend I remove it as one does not exist.
Thing 2) I have removed two possible culprits (Creative SoundBlaster Z card, Asus Wireless-N card). No change.
Thing 3) I have unplugged all video (except 1 Display Port), all USB connections, and the Ethernet cable. No change.
Thing 4) I even went so far as to disconnect my NZXT water cooler USB connector from the motherboard header and reboot. No change.

Whilst attempting to update from build 16176 to 16179 it fails with error Windows 10 Insider Preview 16179.1000 (rs_prerelease) - Error 0x80070005

Finds this update and downloads a KB then starts to install 16179 but quickly stops with this error. I've tried stopping all non MS services and startup programs and rebooting but it still fails. I've also followed numerous different suggestions which got extremely complicated but had no effect.

DISM restorehealth can't find the files and I don't have an ESD/ISO for build 16176

I tried to reset my windows but it only offers a total reinstall losing my software and settings which will be a PIA to rebuild.

I could wait for the next insider release and see if MS have fixed it or is it a problem on my particular PC?

Answer:Update to Windows 10 Insider Preview 16179.1000 - Error 0x80070005

I had the same problem, see here: Get out of Insider updates.

Microsoft (Gabe Aul) stated that they don't have anything for slow ring until next build at the soonest. You can try to get it through fast ring though.

After Windows Insiders installed update KB4046355 for the Insider Build 16299.15, they discovered that Windows Media Player had been silently removed from the computer. As Build 16299 is the Fall Creators Update that is scheduled to come out this month, it is unknown whether the removal of Windows Media Player is intentional as part of this large update or a bug.
Insiders not happy with missing Windows Media Player

The only way Insiders realized that Windows Media Player was removed was when they tried to use it to play a video. It was then discovered that Windows Media Player was silently removed after installing the October 3rd 2017 KB4046355 update.

Hello everyone,
I've already upgraded to Windows 10 (from W7) around August 18th, and still didn't get the Fall Update.
That was fine, I tried using Media Creation Tool and installing the upgrade manually. After "Copying files" was done, at about 30%, right before starting to install drivers and features, it will stop installing and "restore to previous version of Windows", which is Windows 10.
I decided two days ago to join The Insider program on my laptop too, and after couple hours, I was able to download the latest build of Windows 10.
Again, same problem, it wouldn't install drivers and features, and restores the previous version of Windows.
I read somewhere that turning Wifi OFF might solve it but no solution.
Any suggestions?

Question: Insider update.

Have windows 10 1511 with digital rights. At 7 am NY time this morning I changed my settings for fast ring, I am a registered insider. How long before I get 14393.5 update?

Henry

Answer:Insider update.

Usually takes 24-48 hours after switching ring. There is truly no rhyme or reason to the exact time MS clears you for the download. You will get 14393.0 first and then a Cumulative Update to 14393.5 if and only if you are set to the Fast ring. So be sure to check which ring you have after you get 14393.0. For me it was initially set to Release Preview.

You should already have received this in your email.Microsoft has made some adjustments in the agreement for those who are in the insider program.https://insider.windows.com/en-us/program-agreement/?OCID=WIP_r_Body_termsIt appears to be just a change in some legal terms.Here is my question. Does this really change anything?In a commercial environment, automatic updates can present some risk to the business. So frequent backups and a redundant method of doing business ought to be standard. Doesn't everybody know that?   

Answer:Insider Program Update.

They have updated the terms a few times previously.I found a previous copy of the terms here:https://web.archive.org/web/20170827044049/https://insider.windows.com/en-us/program-agreement/It looks like the new revision is much, much shorter. (6 versus 13 pasges when I pasted into Word)Looking it over it seems like they largely simplified it.I'm not sure what your last paragraph/sentence has to do with this, though. This agreement only applies to "Windows Insiders"; an exclusive term they have used to replace their QA department with volunteers.

The latest insider update is stuck at 23% on my surface pro.What should I do?It has been psycho 23% for approximately three hours.

Answer:Insider update stuck

You can keep waiting (I wouldn't, but patience has never been one of my more outstanding virtues), or you can forcibly reboot your machine. Then, you can either install and try the Windows Update MiniTool (which often works when Windows Update does not) or you could visit the Microsoft Catalog and manually download KB3206309 (except I can't find it there -- does anybody know of another source for this update? I'm thinking it's fast ring only, and doesn't hit the catalog until the update goes out to the slow ring. Is that correct?).
I guess that means you should try WUMT (Windows Update MiniTool) and hope for the best!

where can i get the leatest one for seeing if my mum's PC can update to vista?

i can find V1 but it say's theres connection trouble

i've searched microsofts site but all it wants you to do is update to windows 7.

cheers

Answer:Vista Update Advisor

Sorry, the Vista upgrad advisor is no longer available. The advisors are used as marketing tools, they are pushing 7 now.

If you can upgrade to Windows 7, I see no reason why you cannot upgrade to Vista. Try the 7 upgrade advisor.
If you pass the upgrade advisor, even though it will not be an issue, check your specs against required specs.

Hi, I'm running an insider version of Windows 10, I had a legitimate version of Win10 before signing up for the Insider program. My problem is that I am getting warnings saying my current version of Windows is going to expire soon, but when I try to update, it fails. It seems to completely download version 14926 every time, but then fails at the installation part - see below.
If anyone has any ideas on this, it would be much appreciated. I'm hoping it'll fix the massive delay when switching users when I do finally get it. Rebooting makes no difference. No updates since 13th Sept.

Answer:Insider Win10 expiring but can't update.

Might have made some progress with this...

The only update I've seen mentioned is to Build 14926 and may not yet be available to everyone in the Insider program, just as 14915 took awhile to get to those running 14905. Just requires a bit of patience.

I and my friend have L730.
We want to get GDR2 update so that we saw some videos and followed all steps. But after following steps my friend got Windows 10 instead of GDR2.
Now I don't want to install windows 10 but update shows in phone update. How to stop this update & notifications? And help me to get actual GDR2 update.

Answer:Help me its urgent. How to stop Insider Update?

You can't opt out. The only thing you can do is hard reset your device and NOT install the Insider app again.

Since the start of the program that i've been an insider, but after updating to the RTM build I'm unable to see new builds in Windows Update.
I was in the Fast Ring and updates were no where to found. I left the program, made me an insider again and still not receiving updates. What should be the problem?

Answer:Why am I unable to update to an Insider build?

Don't think it's a problem. I had the same issue, but yesterday was prompted to jump to the latest build. Unless anyone posts a better solution, I would say wait it out and keep checking for updates in the meantime.

When I upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1 Pro my Win 10 was activated. I decided to stay on the Insider Preview and today was upgraded to version 10525. After the upgrade, I noticed the Windows Watermark showing this as an Evaluation Copy and no longer have activated copy, but a Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview Copy. Does anyone know why I went through the update farce if you lose it by staying in the Insider Preview.

My bad. Just rechecked and does show it's activated.

Answer:Insider Preview Update to 10525

I have heard that the roll back works good if you want to go back to the rtm. I have not done that yet but am thinking on trying soon. I do have a test machine ready. The good thing seems to be that the activation goes forward and back also. Good luck to you

Trying to get to change the email for the profile is dopey. The links in the newsletters, including unsubscribe, send you to the login page. I give the new email into the updating profile form plus other usual details, but after pressing the completed button I am told that my user name is already taken. Of course it is, by me. The result is that there are now two different profiles for me, one with the email that is inaccessible/no longer exists but doesn't bounce back, the other with a different user name for the new email. I would have thought that the code for unsubscribe or updating email addresses would be standard by now for those that design these things.

My Windows HP Home computer is set up to receive Microsoft Updates automatically, but the only ones I get are for Windows Defender.When I periodically run Belarc Advisor it often reports that some Microsoft Critical Updates are missing - I then have to go to the Microsoft Update site to search for them and download them manually.Has anyone else been affected this way?

Answer:Microsoft Update/Belarc Advisor

Why not change the Security Center's WindowsUpdates configuration to Notify Me Of Updates But Don't Install Them?Then, when the yellow Microsoft icon appears in the Notification area, you can click on it and Choose Customise from the panel which appears.You are then able to pick and choose which downloads you wish to accept and OK it; a panel will ask if you wish to be reminded of those updates you have deselected - confirm No.The required updates will then download and be installed (sometimes this is done when you perform a Shut Down).
