Dell XPS 9100 and Windows 10 Fall Creators Update - Sleep problems

Question: Dell XPS 9100 and Windows 10 Fall Creators Update - Sleep problems

As soon as I installed the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update the computer will not awake from sleep. It is not a laptop, so this should not be complicated by the power settings applicable to laptops/battery settings, etc. It will go to sleep, then when I try to wake it using the keyboard or mouse as usual, the screen stays black, then it does a complete reboot. All drivers for MoBo, video, sound etc are up to date.
Ideas?

Thanks

Preferred Solution: Dell XPS 9100 and Windows 10 Fall Creators Update - Sleep problems

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.)

My issues started when I updated to the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. Even though Dell states that my Dell Inspiron 3541 is fully compatible with Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and IT IS NOT! This update slowed my system down to a crawl! Mouse jumps and skips across the screen when used and ALL programs are very very slow to open and use. And start up is a full 10 MINUTE deal now. I have updated windows and all dell drivers as needed at dell website.
The Fall Creators Update also caused my Onedrive to ask me each time I booted which files I wanted to sync. Excel and Word would not open some files at all. I uninstalled my paid subscription Office 365 and reinstalled, not solving the problem.
I reverted back to my previous Windows 10 version and still had all of the same problems. I did get Office to open all my Onedrive files work by uninstalling and reinstalling Office again. But the Laptop is still very very slow and frustrating.
i have not found anything on the web that relates to this.
I have checked system settings, devices and device settings, event logs, and monitored cpu, memory, and drive usage without finding a culprit.   I have optimized the laptop and run all Dell test.
I am currently doing a clean install of Windows, deleting all else on the laptop, in hopes it solves my issue. If not I have the original factory back up and will install it and go from there.Has anyone else had this issue?
Thanks ahead of time for any help you can provide,  Roy

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,

Hurricane28.

hi I have a inspiron 15 5555 and I'm having issues with the fall creators update with the amd a10-8700p video drivers the only driver that is working for me is 15.200.1060.0 which is from 7/15/2015. The latest ones from windows update, amd site, and dell drivers page wont work the laptop shuts off during install and reboots to no amd driver and uses windows default video driver. I have the latest bios
I noticed this issue when I was on the creators update and tried to update to the fall creators update and the update would fail. so then I used the default factory image and was able to update from that to the fall creators update with no problem but I'm only able to use the old video driver

I have a Dell U3011 monitor which has an SD card reader. Since I installed the fall creators update (Win10 x64 Pro), the card reader is no longer functional. I've tried multiple SD cards, and none of them show as a drive. When I look in Device Manager, under USB Controllers I see "Unknown USB device (Device Descriptor Request Failed)".

The PC is dual boot with Ubuntu, and when I boot Ubuntu the SD card reader works, so the problem is not with the hardware. Any suggestions on a fix? I use the card reader fairly frequently.

I have a dual boot home built system with current parts, which has two separate bootable SSD disks, each containing separate retail copies copies if Windows 10 (one Pro x64 and the other home x386). The reason for the two copies of windows is that the 32 bit allows for older programs to still work.This has worked flawlessly ( both showing activtion) with all windows 10 updates to this point. Updating both to the fall creators update went well, with one major exception, namely the pro version activated, but not the home version. The home version says ?were unable reach windows activtion servers?. Using the activation troubleshooter give the message that ?we found Pro digital license for this device? . It appears that the creators fall update links to only one windows registered and formally activated copy of windows so only one one version of windows can be activated. This seems to be a monumental change, since previously MS was primarily interested in pirates not installing a single windows copy on multiple computers and activtion. This change seems unfair to those of us have full retail copies and should not need a new computer for each version.

This morning, Windows update offered me the Windows 10 creators fall update. I agreed to install it, so it downloaded it and installed it. It needed to reboot it and then is counted up to show the installation. When it reached 35%, it went BSOD. The screen said something about ks.sys. It then reinstalled the old Win 10.
I repeated this and the same thing happened. I then tried the Windows 10 update assistant and the same thing happened.
As my 3668 is pretty new, I assume it should be able to be updated. Anyone got any ideas what I should do next? Or how to fix it?

I'm not surprised to see many problems on the forum as usual after a major Windows 10 update. I don't know whether the problems are due to poor MS software engineering or poorly maintained PCs which only display obvious problems on major upgrades.

I'm continuing my policy of deferring updates on my W10 Pro PCs for 6 months and only updating my W10 Home laptop when the upgrade is offered through Windows Update ( I only got the Creator's Upgrade last week).

I updated my Win10 Home 64 Bit with the Fall Creators Update. Since then I can no longer connect my Samsung S7 to transfer pictures via USB, because the MTP drivers don't work. (I now use bluetooth as a workaround, but that's slow). In the Device Manager under 'Portable Devices', I see 'Samsung Mobile MTP Device' with an exclamation point. Clicking further I see under 'General' 'This device can not start' (Code 10).

I have already removed the drivers, including the USB ones and rebooted the system. Also tried using different USB ports without luck. Reinstalling the drivers also solves nothing.

Anyone got more suggestions?

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

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 .

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 ).

Hi!
 
I receive constant BSOD's about every two days as "reliability history" shows. Today's one:
 
The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x0000007e (0xffffffffc0000005, 0xfffff801e62c9eb0, 0xffffbc8a49d09a78, 0xffffbc8a49d092c0). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 7bb943c3-b3ac-402b-8952-7bb7b9668f95. I upload the minidump if can help, maybe is a driver but I can't identify it. The Windows is a clean install not much 3rd party software on it, worth to mention "VMware 12" and "PGP Disk".
 
The minidump is here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1oNg2_FjIozYUqZVOtweXhGbjsN9P0YDv/view?usp=sharing
 
I contacted Microsoft, no help as expected (https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-performance/bsod-at-about-every-two-days-on-windows-10-fall/afccbe66-e733-4dc2-af9a-fdc79e66eca1)
 
"Reliability history" can prove:
 

 
NOTE:
My OS is: Microsoft Windows Version 1709 (OS Build 16299.192)
My laptop is: ASUS GL502VM-FY040T/I76700HQ/16/1+256/G (https://www.asus.com/us/ROG-Republic-Of-Gamers/ROG-GL502VM/)

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.

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. You no longer need to wait for our signal ? deployment control and choice is yours.* IT admins can leverage Windows Analytics tools that help you plan, test and deploy Windows 10 to your organization, and help accelerate Windows 10 migration.

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

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!

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.

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.

?At around 22% completion, my PC rebooted and suddenly displayed my normal boot screen with a white text saying ?BlInitialization failed 0xc00000bb?, and I have absolutely no idea what this is. I tried resetting my SSD (Kingston 128GB) but this issue is so bad that it won't even let me do that,? one Microsoft user who turned to the Community forums to report the issue explained.

?At first my SSD was locked, then I unlocked it using commands in CMD but it all of the sudden disappeared and windows has no idea that it even exists. I tried resetting everything and all Windows tells me is "We ran into an error." ... Read more

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.

Hi DarkShadow641

I would run the network trouble shooter, Start >Settings > Updates and Security > Troubleshooters

If that doesn't fix run Network Reset. Start => Settings => Network & internet => Scroll to bottom of right hand side =>Network Reset

This will cause you to “Forget” your wireless passwords and you may have to reset any VPN or customized communication software if you use.

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:

Removed features

3D Builder
Apndatabase.xml
Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET)
Outlook Express
Reader app
Reading List
Screen saver functionality in Themes
Syskey.exe
TCP Offload Engine

Deprecated features

IIS 6 Management Compatibility
IIS Digest Authentication
Microsoft Paint
RSA/AES Encryption for IIS
Sync Your Settings

System Image Backup (SIB) Solution
TLS RC4 Ciphers

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).

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)

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 ...

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.

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

Right click at the Start button > click Powershell (admin)> press Enter key.
At the flashing prompt, copy and paste this command line ( to avoid typo it's best to apply Copy/paste method)......

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

When it is done, check if you can use Start button.

If it does not fix it, run a system file check ( sfc /scannow ) on elevated command prompt. It is to check for corrupt files. It will try to do repair if any found.

I'm not sure if this is the right section for this topic, but I want to know if I'm the only one with this problem. It's really annoying and I'm wondering if there went something wrong while installing the update, or if this is on purpose.

It's nothing new that Windows 10 comes with pre-installed apps, for example Candy Crush Saga and Facebook, at least for some people. In the past it wasn't a problem for me, because I could just uninstall them and move on. It was annoying, but this was solved within a few minutes.

But since I installed the Fall Creators Update, I can't get rid of these apps. I removed them at least 4 times now, but they're back after a few hours because they're installed silently in the background, or they're back after I restart my computer - Candy Crush Soda Saga, Facebook, March of Empires, Minecraft and other games.

Sometimes they're not even really installed and they're just placeholders that get installed once you click them. But it's still annoying to remove them again and again.

Changes in the registry, for example to change "SilentlyInstalledAppsEnabled" to 0, didn't change anything. Microsoft should really stop this sponsored apps nonsense completely. It's not like they need the extra money they get from this.

Thanks for reading, have a nice day!

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.

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

I can't get the service to start at all. I keep receiving this error. It is causing indexing to not work either. I tried the indexing troubleshooter with no luck. Any recommendations?

Windows 10 Still Offered as Free Upgrade After Fall Creators Update Launch

Back in 2015 when Microsoft officially launched Windows 10, the company offered it completely free of charge if the upgrade from genuine Windows 7 or 8.1 was performed within the first 12 months after the release.

But even though the promo came to an end in July 2016, Windows 10 was still available free of charge with a trick that Microsoft didn?t seem to be too very keen on blocking, and by the looks of things, the same trick continues to be available today.

Basically, Microsoft allows customers who use assistive technologies to upgrade to Windows 10 at no cost, and all they have to do is to ?claim? they use an accessibility feature in the operating system. There?s no verification taking place and the upgrade can be performed by pretty much anyone presuming they run a genuine copy of Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.
This doesn?t mean that Windows 10 is free of charge. No, because whoever wants to use this ?loophole? to upgrade to Windows 10 still needs a genuine license for their Windows operating system. But with product keys for Windows 7 and 8.1 still up for grabs these days if you know where to look, moving to Windows 10 is less expensive than it might seem at first glance.

No word on blocking the loophole
So does Microsoft plan to block this free upgrade method? Good question, and although an official answer isn?t available, the company says on the upgrade page that the offer will ... Read more

I own a dell inspiron 5558 laptop.I was performing a clean installation of fall creators update by bootable usb drive.
Since I was performing a clean installation so i selected boot from usb and started installing.
I chose custom installation and deleted the partitions except following:
1: ESP 500MB SYSTEM
2: DIAGS 40MB OEM(RESERVED)
3: 128 MB MSR(RESERVED)
4: WINRETOOLS 750 MB RECOVERY
5: PBR IMAGE 7.7GB RECOVERY
I have 922.4GB as unallocated space. When i select this partition to install windows, it give me a error "windows cannot be told in to this disc. The selected disc is of the GPT partition style". I am stuck here and don't know what to do. I don't know whether the above-mentioned partitions are necessary. I searched and found one solution to convert GPT to MBR but it involves a formatting of whole hard disk and i am not sure about formatting the above-mentioned partitions. Please tell me what to do asap, since i need my laptop for exams.?.
THANKS IN ADVANCE.

Hi,

another Windows update and yet another performance regression. With first Creators update, folders with large amount of pictures took very long to open and scrolling performance was terrible, and now with Fall Creators update, I am experiencing very laggy and stuttery Window animations. Especially animations of Maximizing/Minimizing windows, such as Explorer windows, and it's most noticeable on animation that happens when you double click window header to toggle maximized/floating mode.

Before Fall Creators update, all these animations feel like buttery smooth 60FPS. Is anyone else experiencing this?

I have GTX970 with the very latest nVidia driver and Core i7 5930k with 48GB DDR4 memory, so hardware performance issue is out of question.

Thanks in advance.

Everything was perfect before Fall Creators. Then within a day I got blue screen PFN_LIST_CORRUPT . Following this, bluetooth mouse was no longer paired and would not pair. Tried to roll back to previous restore point, but it failed.
So next, I did a factory reset. Updated everything, etc. Bluetooth still did not work. Called Dell support and finally got it to work. Took five minutes of waiting for mouse to be recognized, rather that 5-10 seconds as is usual.
Shortly after this, got another blue screen. Page Fault in Non-Paged Area
A few hours later, got another third blue screen. Different name, did not have time to save it before it went away.
What the <profane> is going on here? How do I make things work the way they are supposed to? The Dell diagnostics show no problems (of course). For the blue screen incidents, Dell app suggests removing software which caused problems and updating drivers. Neither of these work. (It is not possible to do a factory reset without getting Fall Creators Update.)
Please help!

Hi,

Can anyone help I am trying to link your phone and PC new feature in Windows 10 Creators Fall update.
I enter mobile phone number and never get SMS.

Any ideas what problem could be?

Just for your information I am in UK and have Cortana both on PC and Mobile Phone.

Thank you.

Answer:link your phone and PC new feature in Windows 10 Creators Fall update

Are you entering your number correctly? As the country code is already added you have to remember to not enter the first numeral (0) into the phone number box. I.e. instead of 012345678 you add 12345678.

I managed to receive the link but my phone doesn’t appear under phones, I have downloaded Cortana to my iPhone, as the feature appears to be a work in progress I think it isn’t fully implemented.

After updating to 1709 the sound to my AV reciever cuts off randomly all the time. Its connected with HMDI from my gpu (nvidia 980ti), and I've never had this problem. I've tried deleting drivers, updating them. I did a roll back to 1703 and everything was workig fine. Its using the regular windows driver. (High definition driver)

After that I did a manual update to 1709 again and tried both the default windows driver and nvidia sound driver, and both drivers work according to windows, but I still have the same issue with the sound coming on for a second and then goes away. I might add that the sound works perfecly with both windows driver and nvidia driver in 1703. And that in both cases I used the newest nvidia driver and I used driver uninstaller before installing it.

Any suggestions or someone with similar isse? It's so anoying since most of the time I use my desktop on my TV with a wireless keyboard and mouse.

Answer:Windows 10 Fall Creators Update 1709 - Sound HDMI issue

Unless you have a major pressing issue to update to the Fall CU - roll back and stay back for a while.

These updates have bugs that can take some time to fix. You are not missing out on any 'big things' sticking to the previous build.

I have two user accounts on my PC, one for me and another for my family, both are password/PIN protected. I installed the fall creators update the day it was released. Since then, whenever I start my PC from complete shutdown state and login to my account, it automatically logs into the Family account in background. Every time I try to shut down the pc, a message pops up saying Someone else is using the PC, they could lose unsaved work. The users tab in task manager shows the family account logged in but disconnected. Just as it would show if I actually logged in to that account and switched to my account. I don't know if it's a feature or something. I really want to stop this. Please share any information on this issue. Thanks!

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is due to begin its rollout on October 17, but if you want to install it right now, and without joining the Windows Insider Program, you can.

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Bloatware Free Edition isn?t an official release from Microsoft -- it?s a special edition built using the MSMG Toolkit v7.7 and the latest Windows 10 Fall Creators Update RTM Build 16299.15. As you can tell from the name, the Bloatware Free Edition removes a lot of unwanted extras from the OS.
SEE ALSO: Windows 10 update removes Windows Media Player

The release includes integrated DirectX 9, and applied Metro skin to the Windows Photo Viewer.

The following features have been removed:
All Metro Apps except Store, Calculator, Sticky Notes and Xbox (the latter was not removed to retain the proper functionality of the Windows 10 Game Mode)
3rd Party App Links
Connect App
Maps
Telemetry
Skype Video App
Contact Support
Cortana
Windows Embedded Features (removes packages related to Custom Shell, Device Lockdown, Keyboard/Registry Filter)
Geo Location
Home Group
Mixed Reality
Quick Assist App
Take a Test
Windows Defender
Once installed, you?ll need to enter your Windows product key in PC Settings > Updates & Security > Activation > Change Product Key in order to activate it. You can use the OS without activating it of course.Click to expand...

Hello,

since the Fall Creators Update (Version 1709) today in Windows Explorer my Tiles View is screwed up, especially on the Page "This PC"

As you can see on the screenshot the spacing left of the Icon is too large and the View looks shitty this way, especially on network drives where the names are getting longer.

I tried fully resetting all Windows Explorer Views but it didn't help.

Does anyone have a clue what I could do to resolve this problem?

Thanks a lot in before

Greetings,
daniels7

Lenovo did leak the release date earlier today in a press release, but edited the release afterwards to remove the date from it. Considering that Microsoft confirmed the date today, Lenovo might edit the release a second time to add the official date to it again.
