Preferred Solution: HELP: Sierra Wireless EM7455 (WWAN) Not Working After Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

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.)

Hi, I have a P50 recently updated Windows 10 Fall creators update. After the update my system no longer shows my wwan hardware (Sierra Wireless EM7455).I no longer have a cellular connection option in the network menu after clicking the network icon in taskbar tray,no cellular connection section in the networking settingsNo wwan device in Device Manager under Network AdaptersNo cellular connection shown in the Network Connections control panel under Network and Internet. What does show up in device manager is a 'Sierra Wireless Location Sensor' under the Sensors category.I did try to install the Sierra Wireless softwar from here: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/forums/postpage/board-id/tp07_en. But it didn't help.I do not know if any of this has to do with the recent update on Windows 10 but if anyone else has experienced this please share your situation and solution if any.Any help is appreciated, Thanks.

Hello.I just received my X1 Carbon gen. 4 laptop with a factory installed Sierra Wireless EM7455 WWAN card and provisioned with Windows 7.  Unfortunately, I have a very persistent and annoying problem. Almost every time it resumes from hibernate mode the WWAN card device fails to restart---the Sierra Wireless EM7455 Qualcomm Snapdragon X7 LTE-A QDLoader Port has an error: "This device cannot start. (code 10)" as reported by the Device Manager. I have updated the drivers to the latest version  on the support site (version 7.26.4539.0105 of the Sierra Wireless Lenovo Mobile Broadband Driver Package/Device driver version 16.3.1005.41) Any thoughts?

I bought two brand new X270's WWAN upgradable and bought EM7455 cards separately. I installed the cards as directed. When I booted the laptop the first time after installation, a warning message saying something to the effect of "unknown network hardware EM7455." Windows didn't detect the newly installed card. So I did a CMOS reset (removed the extra battery, disabled the built-in battery on the BIOS and pressed the CMOS reset button to the left of the battery bay). After the CMOS reset, Windows recoginized a new hardware by the name of "Sierra Wireless EM7455 Qualcomm" but couldn't install the driver (see the attached screenshot). I did install Lenovo's EM7455 driver (total file size 191MB) and didn't work. I turned to Sierra and found a generic USB Build 4581 driver and it didn't work. When I restarted Windows, the newly found hardware was gone. I did a CMOS reset again and it came back up on the device manager list.  So I turned to Windows update. It found a driver update by the name of Sierra Incorporated - Ports dated 10/20/2016. It tried to install it but it failed. However, the device's name was changed to Qualcomm COM Port (3) and it was still not installed properly. I went to the device's properties and changed the port to 8. It recognized the full name of the card but GPRS connecitons on Windows didn't show up. I restarted Windows, and the device was gone again! I checked the BIOS permissions and I tried different scenarios (disabled WWAN, e... Read more

Hi there, after heaps of tries I have managed to get the Sierra Wireless working in Linux Mint 18.2, the only problem, it automatically goes back to unavailable after suspending or disabling and then re-enabling it. The only way to get it to work again is to restart the lap in Win10 and then again into Linux again. Any workaround? This is being a massive pain!

I have a RealSense F200 camera. Since I installed the FCU, I noticed Windows Hello stopped working.
Fails to inialize the camera on the login screen. It also fails the camera setup.
The camera works, as a webcam. What doesn't seem to work is the red light dot that used to light up when in use (ie, the IR camera).
The device admin in the control panel shows only a single camera. I don't remember well but I think it's supposed to have a separate driver for the IR part of the camera?
Anyway, did anyone get the same problem?

Answer:Lenovo Sierra Wireless EM7455: How to enable COM ports on Windows 10 ?

Hello and welcomeThat's not a Lenovo deal to lock the ports, more clearly, to choose appropriate default USB composition. MS and Sierra do that. To change default USB composition change Sierra wwan card drivers installation configuration and reinstall them. Edit the configuration.ini file within the drivers package:- [Default Values] section- USBCOMP=x parameter (choose 8 as you want).

Greetings all, new to the forum. I got the fall creators update and it looked like everything installed correctly. It installed so well (Or so I thought) that I deleted my windows.old folder on my C: drive. Now the kicker is, I noticed that the Windows Store and some of the Apps no longer work. I believe this was before I deleted the windows.old folder.

Any thoughts on how to fix? I have tried using PowerShell as Admin to reinstall the Store and the apps and that has not worked even after giving the windowsapps folder Admin rights.

Creating a guest account does not give me access to the Store either.

Any help would be appreciated.

BIOS, Drivers, Updates, Dance with tambourine - all was done. I'm a sysadmin in our office, if anybody asks.

Answer:Thinkpad X250: No LAN, No Wireless, No Audio after Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (16299.15)

Hi Voljka,For company or production environment, Windows Insider Preview / Release Preview builds is not recommended, as the drivers may not be ready for all types of hardware.  I would suggest you revert back to Windows 10 RS3 (15063), and wait until it is ready and show up in the Windows Update.

Lenovo posted a security notice about the Sierra Wireless drivers yesterday.  https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/product_security/LEN-12739 In that it says that X1 Yoga should have a new driver version 2.36.10970.4674 at the following location, last updated 7/13/17.http://support.lenovo.com/my/en/downloads/DS112204 1)  That is not the version listed at the location.  That version is of the 7.34 variety, as so many of the machines use.2)  The drivers at that location say their last update was in February.  My download agreed, by naming it nz1wn03w(1).exe, meaning I had downloaded that file before.3)  Microsoft seems to insist theirs is the best driver, in device manager it shows I currently have Microsoft driver version 10.0.14393.1198 for the network adapter.4)  When I run it anyway, thinking maybe someone forgot to update the web page and file name, I'm told that the currently installed driver is better than the one I'm trying to install, and it does nothing. What am I missing?  What should be the next step? -Michele

Just thought I'd balance out the, 'Waahh it doesn't work on mine' threads. Obviously I created a backup and will shortly remove the previous install, via Disk-cleanup, to recover the space.
Thanks MS.
P.s. I try to keep my machines as vanilla as possible so both of my machines did experience a clean install from new etc.

I have an X1 Yoga 20FQ with Windows 10 Enterprise 64-bit and a Sierra Wireless EM7455 WAN card that came with the unit from Lenovo and an AT&T micro SIM card (also in the unit when it came from Lenovo). I also have the latest Lenovo software for the Sierra Wireless card (v. 7.47.4743.0105) from the Lenovo web site. The WAN card will connect to HPSA on AT&T (using the "default APN" and "broadband" in the Win 10 settings) but it will not connect to AT&T LTE. The AT&T web site at https://www.att.com/esupport/article.html#!/wireless/KM1218316 says to use NXTGENPHONE as the APN, but when I input that as the APN the card does not see it at all. I know that NXTGENPHONE is the LTE APN because that is the APN that my cell phone uses for its LTE data connection. AT&T tech support told me I the Windows 10 and NXTGENPHONE APN settings are correct and the AT&T diagnostics show I an LTE connection is available to me.I realize that there can be sources for this problem (Win 10 or AT&T) but I thought I would ask here to see whether anyone has experienced the problem or has a solution.Thanks.

Hello,

I remember before the Fall Creators Update, Edge would autofill certain pages addresses that I visited before when I start typing a word of the subject that the page is discussing (thus not necessarily the address itself).

This does not seem to work anymore since did a clean install of the Fall Creators Update.
I have checked the following options in Edge's Advanced Settings:
- Save forms
- Use Page prediction to browse faster, etc.
- Show suggestions of searches and websites while I type


Are there any other options I should enable? Or does it need time for Edge to register pages that I visit often?

I have three Win10 machines in the same workgroup, all with shared folders that the other machines can access. Previously this has been working fine. Two of the machines have just been updated with the fall creators update. What I now find is:
From Network in Windows Explorer on either of the updated machines, I can still see the machine that hasn't been updated and and see the folders on that machine.Neither of the updated machines can see the other updated machine when I click on Network in Windows Explorer. Only the machine that hasn't been updated appears there. On the machine that hasn't been updated, all I see under Network in Windows Explorer is that machine - neither of the updated machines appear.If, in Windows Explorer on either updated machine I enter \\<other-updated-machine> in the current path field, then all the shares on the other machine are now visible and can be accessed. If I go one level back up to Network, the machine and shared folders disappear again.

Anyone else seen this sort of behaviour, or have an idea on how to fix it?

Current Lenovo firmware for the EM7455 is 02.20.03.22, however Sierra Wireless has a newer version, 2.24.05.06 listed here: https://source.sierrawireless.com/resources/airprime/minicard/74xx/airprime-em_mc74xx-approved-fw-pa... After flashing with the newer version and rebooting, the card reverts back to 2.20.03.22. Has anyone else experience this? Is this something the carrier would dictate and enforce? Any help would be appreciated. Reason for upgrading is, when traveling internationally the unit has spotty connectivity and not very reliable. Hoping firmware upgrade would be a step in the right direction to resolving it.

Can you guys help confirm if there is a modem in the machine. (If not, then the seller lied to me)2. If there is, how do I get it working ? I did put a SIM card in the SIM slot in the back of the macine. I'm pretty sure it is currectly inserted. There is only one direction where I hear a small click, and the card stays in place.  Thanks Simon

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!  ...

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 ...

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

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

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 .

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 all,

I have big problems with the new MS update which prevents me from installing updates or drivers.
It seems that MS has a mind of its own because whenever i install newer drivers it keeps saying that older drivers are installed in device manager..

This is what i mean:

As you can see the driver simply won't update in device manager no matter what i do..
Same as for Realtek audio drivers, i donloaded the newest from MS update but i can't install it and see; "the best drivers are already installed for your device"

Is my Windows corrupt or went bad or something or am i overlooking something? I ran sfc /scannow and found nothing, DISM also didn't find anything but repaired the image anyway.

Plz help me with this as this frustrates me beyond belief..

Thank you in advanced,

https://threatpost.com/say-goodbye-to-smbv1-in-Windows-fall-creators-update/126387/

The crusty SMBv1 file-sharing protocol, abused by a NSA exploit last month that spread WannaCry, will be removed from Windows 10 starting with the upcoming Redstone 3 update.

?We can confirm that SMBv1 is being removed for Redstone 3,? a Microsoft representative told Threatpost.

Redstone 3, a code-name for the Fall Creators Update, will begin the phasing out of SMBv1, a plan that reportedly has been in the works for years and is not a reaction to the EternalBlue exploit, nor WannaCry. It is due in September.

SMBv1, short for the Server Message Block protocol, provides shared access to Windows file and print services on a local network. Attackers believed to have ties to North Korea used the EternalBlue exploit, leaked in April by the ShadowBrokers, to spread the ransomware worldwide on May 12. Hospitals in the U.K., giant telecommunications providers across Europe, and many businesses in Russia and across Asia fell victim to WannaCry, which eventually infected unpatched Windows servers running SMBv1 in more than 150 countries.
Microsoft had patched the SMBv1 vulnerability in question in March in MS17-010, one month before the ShadowBrokers? leak, and urged admins worldwide to install the patch immediately. The WannaCry outbreak, however, demonstrated that many organizations did not heed those warnings; the ransomware, generally derided for its shoddy coding, still managed to infect... Read more

Update went flawlessly. But now many programs open more slowly (5 to 10 seconds vs. 1 second). When they open, you can't click on the menu for 5-10 seconds. Happens in many apps like UltraEdit, Nitro Pro, Paint Shop Pro, etc. Some other apps work fine (e.g, Firefox, IE, etc.) . And this is with my fast gaming rig 6700K with an SSD. There is something in the Fall Creators update that is causing some programs to start slowly and in some cases run slowly. I restored my Macrium Reflect backup Image. This is nonsense Microsoft. I will never install another OS update until it reaches Current Branch for Business (now called Semi-Annual Channel for some stupid reason) - about 3 months from now ( Windows 10 release information - current branch, build history ).

I am having issues updating from 1703 to 1709, and I could use some help.

I used the native Windows Update tool to download 1709. I restarted my computer when prompted to begin the installation. I got about a quarter of the way through the installation when I got a blue screen. The computer then reverted back to 1703 automatically.

I used the Windows 10 upgrade assistant tool, but that resulted in the same blue screen. (Also, I noticed that the tool mentioned that my computer was running a much older version of Windows 10 than is actually installed.)

I used the Windows Update Troubleshooter, which seems to have cleared most of the files in the "SoftwareDistribution" folder. After using the Update Troubleshooter, I tried using the upgrade assistant tool again, but it still failed. Now, when I used the native update tool, it says that my system is up to date. But that is impossible because I still haven't been able to download and install 1709.

Any suggestions? I have an HP Spectre x360.

I?m happy to announce the Fall Creators Update (version 1709) is fully available for all compatible devices running Windows 10 worldwide! Full availability is the final phase of our rollout process. When a new feature update is released, we begin by targeting a select set of devices that we believe will have the best update experience based on device characteristics and testing done by us and our device partners. We then monitor feedback for issues around application and device compatibility and make adjustments along the way, if necessary. Actively listening for and responding to issues as they emerge helps us confidently expand the release to additional devices while maintaining a quality experience. We?re pleased to announce that the Fall Creators Update was the fastest Windows 10 release to reach 100M devices, all while achieving higher customer satisfaction ratings compared to prior updates!

Enterprise customers following this same targeted approach for the Semi-Annual Channel can also fully deploy when ready. As an IT administrator, you decide when to broadly deploy once you have validated the apps, devices, and infrastructure in your organization work well with this release.

Hi,

Found the following bugs in v1709.

1) The Windows Push Notification System Service now defaults to 'automatic' instead of 'manual'. If you set the startup to 'manual' and reboot, any newly created accounts will have a non-functional Start Menu.

2) Software Restriction Policy now extends BAT file restriction to local group policy ( gpedit.msc ) 's logon/logoff script settings. That means you cannot no longer use a bat file for logon/logoff scripts if SRP is active. You can always remove the BAT extension from being covered by SRP, but that would decrease security.

3) Software Restricion Policy's Enforcement section: if you specify SRP to cover 'all software files'; meaning it covers DLL files as well as EXE, then MS Edge will crash. (this bug actually started in v1703, but is still not fixed)

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Bug Blocks the Install on Some PCs

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is now being released in stages to users across the world, so while some people might receive it faster than others, there?s a bunch of unlucky Microsoft customers who can?t install the update because of a critical bug.

Some users are complaining that installing the Fall Creators Update fails unexpectedly, and the only common thing in all reports is a hardware mix of motherboards using Intel?s X299 chipsets and NVMe SSD drives.

Clean install solves the problems
This means that quite a large number of systems could be impacted, as the issue can affect motherboards manufactured by Asus, MSI, and Gigabyte. It?s not yet known how widespread the problem currently is, but Microsoft says it?s investigating and return with a fix shortly.

Answer:Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Bug Blocks the Install on Some PCs

On a Lenovo w/NVMe, Intel IO and an immaculate pre-Fall CU system, I could not understand why the "upgrade" to Fall CU was so issue-laden: failures, duplicate downloads--ultimately it took though. A relatively decrepit machine w/SSD breezed right thru it. Noticed afterward, I had an extra recovery partition but since there were no outward problems, just let it go. Yesterday, Start menu and most taskbar items became unresponsive. So, I did a repair-install earlier today: the disk is back to the normal EFI/C/Recovery and everything works. For now.

Thanks for this info, not fun trying to figure it out.

Say goodbye to these Windows 10 features in the Fall Creators Update

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is just around the corner. The upcoming feature update is purported to sport the "1709" version number. It will also feature accessibility improvements, hardened security, enhancements to Windows AutoPilot management tools, and Microsoft account recovery directly via the lock screen, among other things.

However, there are a number of existing features that are getting removed or deprecated as well. Now, Microsoft has published a comprehensive list of features that are no longer in active development and will be removed in future updates; the company did the same before the rollout of the Creators Update. This has been done to allow customers and IT professionals to consider these changes and make future plans accordingly.



The list of removed and deprecated features is as follows:

When we introduced Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (Windows Defender ATP), our initial focus was to reduce the time it takes companies to detect, investigate, and respond to advanced attacks. The Windows Fall Creators Update represents a new chapter in our product evolution as we offer a set of new prevention capabilities designed to stop attacks as they happen and before they have impact. This means that our service will expand beyond detection, investigation, and response, and will now allow companies to use the full power of the Windows security stack for preventative protection. The stack will be powered by our cloud-based security intelligence, which moves us from a world of isolated defenses to a smart, interconnected, and coordinated defense grid that is more intelligent, simple to manage, and ever-evolving.

We will also provide a single pane of glass experience for security professionals. This means that security management (SecMgmt) teams can easily configure a broad set of Windows security stack technologies through an integrated configuration management experience. Security operations (SecOps) teams get full visibility into their Windows endpoint security and a rich toolset to take action using the Windows Defender ATP console. This will not only give companies a full picture of what?s happening on their endpoints, but will also put them in the driver seat to quickly react to threats as they happen.

Hello everyone!

So a couple of weeks ago (I think) I decided to install the Fall Creators Update on my computer. It was already running Windows 10 and everything ran fine. However, when the update installed and the computer rebooted, the Wi-Fi adapter wasn't working. It is an ASUS PCE-AC68. It is worth noting that my setup consists of a small SSD with Windows installed and then a large HDD with all my files on it. There are several directory junctions for certain programs and the Users folder pointing to the large HDD. Just mentioning this in case it's got something to do with this...

So I started looking into it and device manager throws an error saying Code 10 This device could not start. Then on the line below it says The requested operation as unsuccessful. (I'm getting this from my memory, I'm out of town atm) I tried using newer or older drivers from ASUS and Broadcom and none of them work but still throw the same exact error. Any ideas on this?

To further troubleshoot this issue I fired up an Ubuntu Live USB Stick and used that Wi-Fi adapter and it ran just fine. So I know it's something within Windows. I've been getting by with an old D-Link USB adapter but it is not stable so this is starting to become urgent.

Thanks!

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.

Many of these mi... Read more

Only Games Tab is working, also my Desktop and Laptop are not working after the update. If I create a new user it works fine.....

It happens on both laptop and desktop so it must be a settings or something with upgrade. I don't know..
It tried all DISM command, SFC /Scannow . Store repair, Store clean Cache. but again , new user is working fine on both.

Do you also have issue with STORE ? I'm having issue on both Desktop and Laptop ... so it's not because of software I'm using. I did an Upgrade on both.Can you see the Home/Apps tab properly without grey squares ?

If I create new USER / ADMIN , it works fine .. is it some kind of setting in windows I might disabled ? because on the created account everything is enabled in privacy and others. what setting could make ?

Answer:Windows 10 1709 Fall Creators STORE not working

I've found the fix !

Yes !! I've found the STORE issue with grey squares.The only thing that was different with the other user that it was in FULL HEBREW. now on my main account I'm using it all ENGLISH . so it seems that it can't work with HEBREW + ENGLISH Mix. like Region Israel/Hebrew and Language English !

For example it doesn't work when
Region Format Hebrew ( Israel )
Location Israel
Current language for non-Unicode programs English ( United States )

Also on Languages English United States on TOP
Hebrew on Bot

It does work when I choose some of them as English or hebrew and Hebrew on TOP before ENGLISH

Hello I've got a problem with Windows 1709 update. After I updated, games only sees and uses my R7 APU graphics card.My dedicated R9 M385X has absolutely no usage. In AMD crimson software, I can't set anything to "High performance" mode, so everything sticks with the R7 card. (More precisely I can set to R9 but the program sets it back to R7). In power options I slide the slider to the Max. Has anybody any solution for this problem? Thank youSorry for my English

How do I hide/remove them?

Hi again! Those are system partitions and you won't be able to defrag them. You can view them in disk manager.

Earlier this week we began a targeted rollout of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and I shared with you how to get it. Today, I?d like to share more details on how we will roll out this feature update to Windows 10 devices, including PCs, phones and IoT devices.
Our goal is to deliver feature updates to you as quickly as possible, while providing you with the best possible update experience.
​Phased Rollout Approach
The Fall Creators Update begins rolling out to newer devices tested by us and our device partners. By starting with machines which we believe will have the best update experience, we are able to get focused feedback on application compatibility and how Windows works with the rich ecosystem of available peripherals like Bluetooth devices or cameras. Additionally, we closely monitor feedback from fans and early adopters, through programs like Windows Insiders and Windows Insider for Business, in addition to feedback from our OEM device partners, and customers like you! This helps us determine when to accelerate the release to additional devices. We repeat this process until all compatible devices running Windows 10 worldwide are offered the Fall Creators Update.

We believe this approach provides the highest quality update experience for all our customers.

With this feature update we?ve increased the number of Windows 10 devices we?ve tested in advance with our OEM device and ISV app partners. You can view some of these devices here, which includ... Read more

I've just updated to Creators Update Fall (v1709) but the "Pin to start" is sometimes missing on the right-click context menu. I've also done a clean install of this edition of Windows to a 2nd hard drive from an installation CD to an empty formatted drive and i think the problem still exists there too. "Pin to taskbar" is there, no problems there!

I would be interested to know if anyone else has had this problem.. As i'm typing i think i found a solution. I now have the "Pin to start" back! Here is what i did just a few minutes ago:

go to Settings > Update & Security.
click Troubleshoot.
click "Windows Update" then click "Run the troubleshooter".
Detecting problem... let it run. takes a few minutes.
My system told me there are pending updates and gave me option to apply the fix. i clicked skip this fix.
click close.

Contradictory....not sure what you're trying to say.






My system told me there are pending updates and gave me option to apply the fix. i clicked skip this fix.



Why? let it fix it.

AFAIK....not everything is/has/allowed to be pinned to start. I could be wrong.

Hi, I've tried searching the forum for this issue but can't find a solution as yet... Looking for some help to overcome a problem I have with my E73, i5, 4GB Win 10 desktop. The Fall creators update has applied itself a couple of times to this PC and both times has resulted in the black screen with cursor issue that appears to have hit a few people. However, none of the fixes reported have worked for me. The PC was bought with Win 8.1 installed and was upgraded to Win 10 which was installed on a new 256GB SSD and the original HDD used as the data  Drive. I had suspected it was graphics card related so the last time i tried disabling the automatic updates, manually updating the Intel HD 4600 driver and running the creators update manually from the MS web site but same result. Symptoms are machine boots to login screen OK, black screen occurs after login for all accounts. If I leave it, I see a couple of pop up messages about user profiles but nothing else other than the mouse cursor. Ctrl-alt-delete gives me the usual options but selecting task manager does not bring up task manager (not that I can see any way). Booting to safe mode gives the same result. Trying to remove the package from recovery options -> cmd prompt fails. The only way to get back is holding shift and clicking restart, going into recovery options and selecting go back to previous build. I assume I am going to miss critical security updates if I cant get the update ...

Hi, recently i got a new windows 10 update called the creators update, and upon updating everything got reset. i.e wallpaper got reset, app data was restored to default such as chrome appearing as if it was newly installed. This wasn't a major issue because it only took 30 minutes to restore everything; however, the annoying thing was that it appears that my previous user had been cloned/glitched out and I cant delete it, and it doesn't even appear in the control panel as other users (screenshot attached). Could anyone give me some advice as to how I would be able to delete this folder?

Hello Folks,
I have a XPS 13 9360, 16 GB with an upgrade Samsung 960 Evo NVMe 1TB drive. I'm running Windows 10 Pro Build 1703, and the system runs nicely. However, yesterday Windows Update made me upgrade to 1709. The upgrade process ran smoothly, but afterwards I had the following problems:

When I tried to save a Hyper-V VM, my system sometimes crashes with a blue screen
When shutting down windows, the system gets stuck on the "Shutting down..." screen and can only be switched off by long-pressing the power-button. After that, the system boots into maintenance mode, when rebooting again it boots normally.

I forced a downgrade to 1703 and the problems disappeared again. Now I have disabled upgrades and am trying to find out how to fix this.
Has anyone run into problems with the 1709 update? Any suggenstions?
Cheers,
Uwe

Answer:XPS 13 9360 Windows Fall Creators (Build 1709) Update

It seems the new Creator's build is causing several different types of problems with some of the Dell systems.  
Since you have already rolled back, I suggest you continue to wait until an update is released which helps.  Since there are several threads concerning some of these problems you should be able to tell when a fix is found.
I don't about the Hyper-V situation but I seem to remember it having problems with earlier builds.
