Windows 10 fall update erased the Windows Update history plus new installed updates don't appear. What do I do?

Question: Windows 10 fall update erased the Windows Update history plus new installed updates don't appear. What do I do?

i upgraded from win 7 to win 10 in early august. no problems. i've been installing all updates since then and installed updates always showed status of updates. after installing fall update i noticed my update history was erased and any updates since, like defender definition files, don't appear in the list. only one update is listed: Security Update for Internet Explorer Flash Player for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3103688) installed on 11/14/2015.

Preferred Solution: Windows 10 fall update erased the Windows Update history plus new installed updates don't appear. What do I do?

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've been running windows 7 home premium 32 bit without problems for several years
I did a clean install of windows 7 home premium 64 bit from DVD
I activated it
SP1 (KB976932) appeared in the list of available updates so I ran Windows Update
When the updates were complete I checked the update history and SP1 (KB976932) was successful
However when I checked installed updates there was no mention of SP1 and the windows edition does not show SP1 either
There is no windows icon on the task bar to request the free upgrade to windows 10
I have repeated the clean install process 3 times with the same result. I also tried downloading SP1 from microsoft website but that got stuck in a boot loop
When I was running windows 7 32 bit the windows icon was available on the task bar to request the free upgrade to windows 10
I'm not that concerned about getting SP1 I just want to register for the free windows 10 upgrade
I'm running an Intel E6750 with 4gb ram on a gigabyte 965p-dq6 mobo. It's pretty old but I have a similar PC of the same vintage that ran win 7 64 bit without any problems before I upgraded it to windows 8 and I had no problems registering for the windows
10 upgrade on that PC
Any ideas?

SP1  (KB976932) appeared in the list of available updates and in the update history

Originally, I updated to the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update using Windows Update except after Windows 10 Fall Creators Update was running, the Phone aka CommsPhone app is not installed properly as basically it is showing up as
ms-resource:AppListName in the Start Menu and when I click on it, it opens with a white box with just a menu bar that says Phone and then exits. I have tried going into Apps and Features and then selecting Advanced options under the Phone app and then Resetting the data.

I have also tried doing the following in a elevated PowerShell with no success which results in the same problem:

Code:
Get-appxpackage -allusers *BingNews* | Remove-AppxPackage
Get-AppxPackage -allusers *BingNews* | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register ?$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml?}

I did a restore of the previous Windows 10 version so basically it restarted to the point where it is supposed to update to Fall Creators Update except it shows the update as pending after restart, ofcourse it just boots into Windows and Windows Update shows it has the latest updates with the Fall Creators Update pending after restart so I made sure the Phone app was working and then I basically did a install using the ISO instead and just like before, it installed successfully and everything is working and Phone basically has the same problem. Does anyone know what else I can do to fix this or is Phone even a working app in Windows 10 because in the store, it... Read more

While looking into recently installed Windows Updates I noticed something strange.

This month there were five Important Office 2007 updates offered to me. I installed them and it shows this in Update History. But when I look in Installed Updates (where I would need to uninstall from) it lists 20 something updates from that same date.

How is this possible? Are there other updates within the main update? I've never spent a lot of time looking at Installed Updates but it seems this may occur for other updates as well.

Answer:Update History vs. Installed Updates

They often do not match. Mine don't.

"View Update History" often only shows more recent updates.

The one marked "Installed Updates" shows the entire list and allows for uninstalling them if necessary.

Nothing to worry about.

I manually uninstalled an update some time ago, and when viewing Programs > Programs and Features > Installed Updates the update in question is not listed. However, going in Windows Update > Update History, the update is listed as status = successful and the date installed is shown. Is there any other way to verify that the update is either hidden or uninstalled and not successfully (currently) installed? Thanks.

Ok, so recently, i installed an optional update through Windows update on to my Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit system. When i logged on, i noticed that my netgear wireless internet card was no longer working at all. I tried to uninstall the update since it seemed to be working before it was added. however even though it shows up in the "update history" tab, it does not show up in the "installed updates" tab.

the exact update name:
-Broadcom driver update for Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter

anyone know how i can get rid of it/downgrade it to the previous working version?

Answer:Update shows in history, but not in installed updates

Yeah, that is because it is a driver. Go to Device Manager > under Network Adaptors you will find your Broadcom > double click on it and go to the Driver tab. There you can roll- back.

When the Windows 10 Fall update (threshold 2) was released several days ago I tried updating via Windows update; it failed to install the update several times. Yesterday it started saying that my computer was up to date and I know threshold 2 has not been installed. Today I decided to try the media creation tool to do an inplace upgrade. It failed as well with error: 0x8007002C - 0x4000D The installation failed in the Second_Boot phase with an error during the Migrate_data operation.

I got this same error in august when trying to do an in place upgrade to windows 10 from 8.1 for activation purposes. I got around it then by selecting to 'keep nothing' instead of 'keep data and apps', it did not matter then because I was already planning to do a full clean install afterwards and just needed to activate my PC, however, now I want to keep everything.

I have attached the error message I get from the Media Creation tool upgrade attempt.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello All.
I upgraded to Windows 10 Pro over a month ago and have noticed something with Windows updates recently. I see in the system event log that the Windows Update Agent has installed several updates, however, if I go to Windows Update History under the Update and Security section, click on Advanced Options, and click on Update History, I do not see that any updates were installed during the date or time that is specified in the event log. Not sure what is happening here and was wondering if someone knew what Microsoft is doing with updates in this case.
Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

How can I delete some duplicate updates in the windows (view update history) page. I don't see where I can click and delete any of the updates.

Answer:How can I delete some dulicate updates in the windows (view update history) page?

There is no way you can delete update history (Selected) entries.

If you want to clear the windows update history, Navigate to "C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore" Delete "DataStore.edb".

Before you delete "DataStore.edb" you should stop Windows update service and BITS service.

Try the following in command prompt:
net stop wuauserv
net stop bits

To start services after deleting "DataStore.edb", try the following:
net start wuauserv
net start bits
or just restart the computer once.

Hope it helps

Spoiler (Highlight to read)IMPORTANT!!IMPORTANT!!Friends from Lenovo,Yesterday I did the update to the new version of Windows 10, called Windows 10 Fall Creators Update or Windows 10, version 1709, and after the update was done I find out that the hotkey driver, that controls the Fn commands on the keyboard of my Lenovo ThinkPad X220, doesn`t work correctly with this new version of Windows 10. Therefore, I would like to know what can I do to fix this issue, so the hotkey commands work properly again in my notebook, or if it is going to be an update of this file (8jvu43ww.exe) that I could install in my notebook to fix this issue. Could you please tell me what can I do to make the Fn commands work properly with the new update of Windows 10 (Windows 10 Fall Creators Update) or if it is going to be an update of the hotkeys that is compatible with the new version of Windows 10?I look forward to hear your comments, and I hope you already have an idea, an answer to solve this issue. Yours truly,Cristián Palau

What kind of trouble are you having downloading the link from Microsoft?
I deleted the link because it's not a good idea to download the link from a third party when Microsoft itself publishes the files. It's extremely difficult to know for sure if any third party is adding malware or something else into the files.

Sounds normal to me. Since all of your Windows Updates are up to date, there aren't updates to restart to.
Next week the first Tuesday of the month will probably have cumulative updates as well as other updates available sometime during the week and when the computer is ready to download and then install them you should see the option to update and restart shown again.

Hi,

Since the update, Microsoft is pushing strange Update Packages to me. Before the Update, everything was fine, now the Text says i.e.:
for AMD64 based systems KB4051963

but what the heck, I do have a x64 based system (Intel).

I don't now now if it is just the text what is wrong or if MS is really pushing wrong Update packages onto my computer.

Anyone having a similar issue?

Answer:Since Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (1709) - Update Packages weird

It’s OK, it’s just the way MS have worded the update. It’s fine to download & install.
amd64 based is just meaning that it is x64 based windows instead of x86 (32 bit). AMD owns the IP for 64-bit processes that we all use. Doesn't matter if it is AMD or INTEL .

Answer:Anyone else that hasn't received Fall Creators Update yet via Windows Update?

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update phased rollout approach - Windows Experience Blog

You better wait

The company recommends users to wait for the Fall Creators Update to be offered via Windows Update, though there?s no estimate as to how much this wait could last as it all depends on the number of bugs and issues that the company finds in the new OS version.Click to expand...

You might not have been offered the upgrade, because of the software/hardware you have. Like AMD causing black screen during boot.

Hey guys,
I've come across this annoying problem where, Windows Update can't update certain features/drivers. In this case it would be my mouse pad driver and integrated gfx driver... All I get is a notification saying it can't update. On the Windows Update window, this is what I get:
Once I click "Instalar Agora" (Install now), no second window appears, as you would expect from a third party update.
Any suggestions? This is really becoming highly annoying.

Answer:Updates can't be installed - Windows Update

Have you restarted the machine yet? Sometimes that fixes update issues. Also are you sure you're actually receiving an error... Driver updates in Windows 10 are delivered via WSUS as well now so you won't see anything other than the standard windows update procedure.

Hi all,
I head to this section on advise by a Moderator from the Virus/trojan/Spyware Help section.
After cleaning the machine from a rootkit I have this issue:
I removed and then reinstalled SP3 (twice) and after downoading the updates now my pc prompts me to install updates that appear to be already in the system.
The last update haunting me is KB2633952 (before it was KB981793).
After every reboot I have the yellow update icon on the toolbar (down on the left, close to the clock). If start the installation procedure it ends telling me it is impossible to install. I tried to download it directly from Microsoft download center and the result is an installation error: "update cannot be installed as a newer or same timezone has already been installed on the System".
If I search the system I find the update in these directories:
1) C:\Windows\System32\CatRoot\{F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE}

My Surface Pro (1st generation) is running Windows 10 and I have it set to update Windows automatically. It's been doing that fine. Recently though I noticed that it always offers me 'Update and shut down' instead of just 'Shut down'. So I let it update. Next time I use the machine and come to shut it down, it makes me update again. And while it's updating, it certainly looks like it's trying to update rather than just shutting down.
According to my Windows Update history, the last successful update was on 15th September. But it's listing no update failures either, which is suspicious.
Anyone got any ideas?

Hello,
On Windows 10, in Settings > Update > Advanced Options, what's the difference between choosing "Automatic" and "Notify to schedule restart" when choosing how updates are installed?
If we choose the second option, does that mean that updates won't be installed automatically?

Answer:Windows Update Question, if we choose the second option will the updates not be installed automatically?

The "Notify to schedule restart" it's just, when there is an update downloaded and ready, it will notify and ask you to schedule a time to restart.
I mean, Windows updates always have three options when it downloads an update, to let Windows restart automatically your device at 3 am, you can select a restart time and you can of course restart your computer right away to install the updates.
So by setting Notify to schedule a restart, you only are suppose to get a notification from Windows 10 to set the time, nothing more. Automatic will be silent and will not bother you about it, but either way, you can change it when you want to apply the updates and restart.
if you need more control, of course gpedit.msc is needed. if you have Pro of course.

Hi there
 
I'm having multiple problems and the one above has come up today as I was looking into how to enable automatic TomTom connection and also Alfa wifi.  The Alfa keeps saying that Relatek driver is not connected.  Diagnostics keep coming up with different reasons and the one above is the latest.  It varies daily and I need some advice as it is soul destroying.  Is someone can help I would be most grateful.

Answer:Driver updates aren't automatically installed when detected by Windows Update.

FWIW:  You should never...use Windows Update for drivers.  If the system is an OEM/name brand system (e.g., HP, Dell, Lenovo, etc.) you should get drivers for the system from the respective system manufacturer's websitel.

hello - xp sp2--- in past was able to access 'Windows update' via tools/windows update... then could access option to view what is currently showing as updated i.e. on my computer (update history).
..... suddenly today, that 'feature' is not working - tried everything recommended on the 'site' ..i.e. .added site to pop-blocker/low blockage setting; (never a problem before today).. it tries to 'load' that page - i see it 'flash' briefly then disappear with another page appearing stating there was a problem accessing my personal 'update history' (or whatever the language was - don't remember totally)..
Don't know if this is related but also today i just downloaded & installed the NeT recommended update (restarted computer) and i think it was after that was completed that i tried to view the link for 'history of updates' -without success.
I read ''FAQ'' and did what i wrote above ... HELP! thanks - Edythe
PS: under Security - my NET is showing as 'enabled' - course i haven't a 'clue' what that means - LOL - I also did a virus scan - no problems -

I have Windows 7 Pro, and recently noticed that I haven’t been getting Windows Updates.  (I set it to notify me before downloading and installing).
 
So I ran Windows Update manually and it said that I had 57 items to install.  However, it kept hanging at 0%.  When I cancelled, I noticed that many of the items were listed as “failed” with an 80080008 error code.
 
After checking the forums, I performed the following commands:      
 
net stop wuauservnet stop cryptSvcnet stop bitsnet stop msiserverren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.oldren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 catroot2.oldnet start wuauservnet start cryptSvcnet start bitsnet start msiserverpause
 
 
Then:
 
net stop wuauserv
regsvr32 %windir%\system32\wups2.dll
net start wuauserv
 
Now when I run Windows Update, my update history has been deleted and it hangs at “checking for updates.”
 
I ran sfc /scannow and got no integrity violations.
 
Thanks in advance for any advice. I must have done something wrong above.

Answer:Windows update-- accidentally deleted history and now it will not update

See http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/616671/what-is-going-on-with-windows-update/page-2 .
 
There are any number of documented topics about Win 7 Windows Update problems...I've tried most of the postulated attempts at fixes and I don't believe that there is any one which accomodates every situation.  Some things that worked for others...did not work for me.  Trial-and-error is the only solution to some situations in life, IMO.

Answer:Windows Defender ATP Windows 10 Fall Creators Update now open for public preview

As usual, Microsoft makes an announcement that does not include a lot of pertinent details that will result in mass confusion.

This is for Windows Enterprise and Education only; it will not be shipped with Windows Home and Pro versions.

In fact, Windows Defender ATP is not included with Enterprise and Education by default. ATP requires the purchase of a subscription.

Pay attention to Microsoft's caveat:

Important

Some information relates to prereleased product which may be substantially modified before it's commercially released. Microsoft makes no warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information provided here.

They list Windows Pro and Pro Education, but ATP cannot be purchased for Pro at the home-use level. It is for enterprises and other institutions that have opted to use Windows Pro at the volume level.

Ever since upgrading to Windows 10 Home x64 Fall Creators Update, what appears to happen is Windows Explorer will work correctly for up to 7 days from logging in but it seems like it is running out of resources or something since as little as 2 days or up to 7 days, it appears that Windows Explorer will not work correctly in displaying things as shown below when I open a folder or if I right clicked on a item as the later will only show a bunch of arrows instead of the actual items.

I have already tried killing and restarting the explorer.exe and dwm.exe processes but the results is still the same as only a reboot will fix it. Anyone has any ideas how to fix this and what is causing it?

In the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, Device Portal now offers several new tools from across Windows to help you location test your UWP, explore Mixed Reality, build new hardware peripherals and test your apps new installation pipeline. It?s a little bit of goodness for everyone, and we?re excited to share these with you.

If you?re not familiar with Device Portal, you can check out the blog posts below to see what other tools you can find in Device Portal, or look at the new docs.microsoft.com to learn how to enable it.

And as always, all of these tools are backed by a REST API, so that you can use it from a scripting or client application environment using the Device Portal Wrapper.

Location Based Testing
Most of us don?t have the travel budgets to test our apps across the world ? but pretending to travel is almost as good! The Location tool in Device Portal lets you easily change the location that Windows reports to apps. By tapping the ?Override? check box, you can swap out the device location for whatever you set using the map or lat/long text boxes. Be sure to uncheck the box when you?re done so that your location (and timezone) come back to reality ? every vacation must end?

Figure 1: The News app keeping me up to date with local headlines!​
This also works for web pages in Microsoft Edge, letting you test your webpages in different parts of the world.

these unfinished update will it became a trash on my computer or just simply gone?

how to delete these failed updates?

thx,

Answer:there's a lot of failed update on windows update history?

You don't delete failed updates - it just means that they didn't install at that attempt (possibly your connection got broken)
Go back to Windows Update again, check for updates again, and install ONLY the Security updates for Windows itself (not .NET, or IE etc.) , then go back and do the rest of the updates for Windows, - then do IE, and lastly do the .NET updates.

My computer came preinstalled with Windows 10 on it. It already had the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant on it, which bumped it up to the regular Creators Update.

When the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update comes out, and I go to install it through the Upgrade Assistant, will it wipe away my HP OEM added features?

It didn't wipe it away when I updated it to the regular Creators Update.

The reason why I am asking is because this computer runs so well, that it doesn't need to be clean installed. My prior computers probably would, because the OEM added features weighed them down and made them slow.

It was an amazing day today at Build 2017. With the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, we continue to grow the Windows platform so that Windows is home for all developers. As I reflect on the day, I want to highlight how Windows and VS are creating the best end-to-end development process and enabling developers not only to maximize their code reuse, but also to create experiences that are engaging, powered by intelligence and connected across devices.

.NET Development Improvements
With today?s announcement that .NET Standard 2.0 for UWP and XAML Standard will be coming later this year, .NET is now the most complete cross-platform development framework. This combination, along with Visual Studio, makes it easier than ever before to write fully native and full-featured apps for all your target platforms in C#, including Windows, iOS, Android, Linux and, of course, the cloud!

.NET Standard 2.0 and XAML Standard
.NET Standard 2.0 is expanding the UWP surface by over 20,000 APIs to make sure your code is more interoperable than ever. We also know that about 70% of NuGet packages are API compatible with .NET Standard 2.0. Your most requested APIs for UWP, such as Reflection and SqlClient, will be fully accessible to you from the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. In addition, XAML Standard allows you to keep much of your UI code common and still maintain a native look and feel across Windows, iOS, and Android. Your experience on Windows will automatically provide Fluent UI an... Read more

As with the Creators Update, the key to our phased approach is actively listening to all available feedback mechanisms and making the appropriate product updates during the rollout. This allows us to provide a high-quality experience for the broadest set of users at an accelerated rate, while also continually increasing the quality and security of Windows 10. This was our approach with the Creators Update released in April and user feedback on this approach was very positive.

For the best experience, we recommend you wait until Windows 10 is automatically offered to your device. You don?t have to do anything to get the update; it will roll out automatically to you through Windows Update if you?ve chosen to have updates installed automatically on your device. Once the download is complete and the update is ready to install, we?ll check with you, so you can pick the right time to finish the installation and reboot. We do this so we can ensure the update does not disrupt you, and we use active hours to help suggest a good time.

If you don?t want to wait for the update to roll out to you, you can manually check for updates on your personal PC using the steps below. This will only work if your device is eligible to get the Fall Creators Update as part of the initial roll out phase. Alternatively, you can manually get the update today via the Software Download Site. This option is only recommended for advanced users on devices running a licensed version of Windows 10. If ...

I would like to comment on the Fall Creator's Edition Update of Windows 10!  This has to be one of the biggest disasters that Microsoft has ever accomplished.  As one can see from the various problems encountered after the install this update was not well designed, was not thoroughly quality controlled and now has the support staff scrambling to figure out how to answer all of the issues that it caused.  Here is my list of issues after the update:  Mail and Calendar programs missing from Start Menu, Control Panel Apps shows them to be installed but I cannot add to start menu and cannot start either program.  Several other Apps also missing from Start Menu including Amazon, Adobe Reader and most other third party Apps but also several more Microsoft Apps or Windows Programs.  Files missing:  Somehow during the install Microsoft decides to remove the pointers from the Pictures and Documents folders so that it appears all previous files in these locations are lost.  By navigating thru Users...Documents I was able to retrieve all of the files but how many novice or new users are going to know how to do this type of trouble shooting?  This is a bonafide nightmare for Microsoft and takes me one step closer to trading in all of Dell computers for Macs!  It cannot possibly be worse than two days of troubleshooting and researching how to get back to the same functionality I had before installing the latest Windows 10 Update!  ...

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Reaches RTM

Microsoft has completed development of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, with the official release to take place as planned on October 17.

The company today shipped Windows 10 build 16299.15 to insiders in the Fast ring, and according to reports, this is the RTM build of the Fall Creators Update that everyone will get later this month.

The only difference is that Microsoft will continue to service (to improve) this particular build with more cumulative updates, and this means that insiders will be provided with several patches in the coming days until October 17.

Microsoft has promised to confirm when the RTM build is compiled, so an announcement in this regard is expected anytime soon, especially because the company is also likely to start pushing smaller patches to devices enrolled in the Insider program in the next few days.

No word on the mobile release just yet
For the time being, no stand-alone ISOs are available for insiders, but once the very same build is released to the Slow ring, such media should also be released for those who want to perform a clean install. Additionally, this build should also make it to the Release Preview ring in the coming weeks.

Of course, whoever wants to clean-install build 16299.15 can build their own ISO, though this requires additional steps. Learn here how to build your own Windows 10 ISO.

Now that Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is close to getting the final go-ahead, insiders in... Read more

Tried to upgrade from Windows Update as well as using the Media Creator Tool by downloading from the Microsoft website, neither of them works. In the end, I got an error code "0xC1900101 - 0x20017", and a message "The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during BOOT operation." I have every driver and OS software updated to-date. I do have Ubuntu installed as a dual-boot OS and Macrium Reflect configured as a recovery software from the boot, which might have caused the problem. I encountered this issue a while ago with the Spring Creator Update (see here), and I fixed it by deleting the Ubuntu booting partition, which I definitely want to avoid! I searched on Google, similar issued happened for HP laptops and was related to the BIOS driver. Does anyone know if this issue is related to the Thinkpad BIOS setting or something we have to wait for Lenovo to fix? Any solution to this issue? Thanks.

According to Paul Thurrott's reporting, "...Microsoft will release the ?Threshold 2? (TH2) release of Windows 10 in November as the Windows 10 Fall Update. And unlike the post-RTM Windows Insider builds we?ve been getting, the Fall Update will ship as a cumulative update, not as a full build."

We?ve come a long way since we launched DirectX 12 with Windows 10 on July 29, 2015. Since then, we?ve heard every bit of feedback and improved the API to enhance stability and offer more versatility. Today, developers using DirectX 12 can build games that have better graphics, run faster and that are more stable than ever before. Many games now run on the latest version of our groundbreaking API and we?re confident that even more anticipated, high-end AAA titles will take advantage of DirectX 12.

DirectX 12 is ideal for powering the games that run on PC and Xbox, which is the most powerful console on the market. Simply put, our consoles work best with our software: DirectX 12 is perfectly suited for native 4K games on the Xbox One X.

In the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, we?ve added features that make it easier for developers to debug their code. In this article, we?ll explore how these features work and offer a recap of what we added in Windows 10 Creators Update.

But first, let?s cover how debugging a game or a program utilizing the GPU is different from debugging other programs.

As covered previously, DirectX 12 offers developers unprecedented low-level access to the GPU (check out Matt Sandy?s detailed post for more info). But even though this enables developers to write code that?s substantially faster and more efficient, this comes at a cost: the API is more complicated, which means that there are more opportunities for mistakes.

Hi Suleku. Welcome to the forum @Suleku.

Open device manager, find video adapter, right click, try updating driver. If that doesn't work find an older driver from manufacturer and install it.
