Microsoft's third Windows 10 cumulative update said to fix Store issues

Question: Microsoft's third Windows 10 cumulative update said to fix Store issues

Microsoft officials say the latest Windows 10 cumulative update fixes problems some users were having with Windows Store. What else is in it? We have no idea.
 
The newest cumulative update is KB3081438. The Microsoft Support page says nothing about the specific features and fixes that are new to this update beyond "This update includes improvements to enhance the functionality of Windows 10."

Preferred Solution: Microsoft's third Windows 10 cumulative update said to fix Store issues

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

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

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

Answer: Microsoft's third Windows 10 cumulative update said to fix Store issues

"This update includes improvements to enhance the functionality"
Any update with a vague description like that should be considered suspicious. If I were offered an update worded like that for my windows 8.1 machine I would definitely refuse it, if they won't say what it is for it is either not important or not pleasant. Remember that this is the sort of language which was the wording used for the KB page of kb3035583 when it was first released (it's page has been updated since to give a more accurate description of what it does, but when that update first came out it's page was all vague like that).

Microsoft rolled out a new Windows 10 cumulative update for PCs running version 1607 (Anniversary Update), and just as we reported yesterday, there were plenty of users who experienced installation issues.

In a post on the firm?s Community forums, Microsoft engineers confirm the installation problems and explain that the team is already investigating and developing a fix.

?Investigating?
There are no details as to when exactly this new cumulative update fix could be released, but it?s worth noting that Microsoft itself says that there?s no point in trying to install this cumulative update because it?ll keep failing anyway.

?Teams have dug into this issue and do believe the cause has been identified. The correct team is developing a fix/workaround and once we have the full details, we'll be posting that information. For your affected machines, there's no need to keep attempting the install. It'll keep failing. In the mean time, hold tight! We're all over this and will keep sharing information along the way,? Microsoft says.

Several company engineers have already joined the discussion thread on the Community forums, asking for more details on the problem, so it?s very clear that the firm is actively investigating the problem.

What?s more frustrating, however, is that this cumulative update actually experienced the exact same issues when being tested ... Read more

Microsoft Announces New Monthly Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Creators Update

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Microsoft Launches Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB4039396

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

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

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

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

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

Microsoft has just rolled out a new cumulative update for PCs running Windows 10 preview builds, so if you?re not part of the Insider program, you?re not going to see it.

What?s odd with this update is that it takes the version number to Windows 10 14393.82, which the exact same version that another cumulative update released by the company earlier this week brought. In fact, Microsoft even says that if you have the old update running on your computer, you?re not going to see the new one, which is kind of weird, given the fact that it also includes an exclusive change.

Microsoft explains that this new update brings the same fixes as the previous one, with just one exception, but because you can?t see it, you?re not going be able to get this improvement - the chances are that it?ll be part of another cumulative update planned for the next weeks, so you should receive it anyway at some point in the near future.

?We have released Cumulative Update (KB3176934) to Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14393 on PCs which will bring the build number to 14393.82. This Cumulative Update includes the same fixes as KB3176932 but with an additional fix: Improved download size optimization of updates,? Microsoft explains.

Could be released to retail users soon

What?s also interesting is that these cumulative updates are currently available for insiders only, so retailer users are very likely to get them in the coming weeks when all the testing is completed.

http://news.softpedia.com/news/how-...te-kb3194496-installation-issues-508877.shtml

Microsoft rolled out Windows 10 cumulative update KB3194496 for computers running 1607 last week, but as we reported recently, there are plenty of users out there who are experiencing problems when trying to install it.

While this isn?t surprising at all given the fact that similar issues were spotted with many other cumulative updates, Microsoft has already confirmed that it?s investigating reports and that a fix is on its way.

Fortunately, someone on the Microsoft Community forums has found a workaround for this problem in order to successfully install the cumulative update on any Windows 10 computer.



The workaround
What you need to do is to fire up File Explorer and delete the entire folder at the following location (administrator privileges are needed, so make sure you are logged in with an admin account):


Code:
C: > Windows > System32 > Tasks > Microsoft > XblGameSave
After that, launch the Registry Editor by typing regedit.exe in the Start menu and delete the following registry key ? once again, administrator privileges are needed to do this:


Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Microsoft > WindowsNT > CurrentVersion > Schedule > TaskCache > Tree > Microsoft > XblGameSave
According to users who have already tried this, all you need to do next is to launch Windows Update once again and try to download and instal... Read more

Answer:How to Fix Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB3194496 Installation Issues

Also, if you have completely uninstalled (deleted) XBox and all associated items from your system, then KB3194496 will not install.

To get KB1394496 to install, you have to completely re-install XBox - and not forget to install all associated items.

There is a DISM re-install package method for advanced users, and then for everyone else there is a clean install of Windows 10.

Don't you just love it... ?

* * * * *

The better solution is to disable Windows Update service and only re-enable it to install any cumulative updates -- after waiting for at least two months for a "fixed" cumulative update.

Don't be one of Microsoft's guinea pigs...

I have a Windows 10 system upgraded from Win7. Windows Update failed on this recent cumulative update. The web has lots of hits about this. After trying a number of fixes, the following worked for me:

1. I went into Disk Management and saw that my System Reserved Partition was 100MB vs the minimum recommended (according to some sites) of 400MB.

2. I used MiniTool Partition Wizard (free edition) to resize the System Reserved Partition to 450MB. That required burning a CD from a downloaded ISO.

3. Since the Windows update failed again, I deleted the contents of C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download (I did NOT delete the DOWNLOAD folder itself, just the contents)

4. BINGO! The update installed.

Hope this helps someone else who may have this problem.

Actually most of the problems are due to Windows firewall being turned off.

Open services by typing in services.msc in Run,right click Windows firewall service and set it to automatic.Start it if it is stopped
Make sure the service named security center should also be the same.

Microsoft has released a new Windows 10 cumulative update for systems running the Anniversary Update (1607), but the company hasn?t provided any release notes, so it?s hard to tell what exactly it?s improving.

Windows 10 cumulative update KB3199209 is now available for download via Windows Update, and Microsoft isn?t saying a single thing about it, even though interest in such updates has been fairly big lately. There?s no KB page just yet, and the Windows 10 update history page hasn?t received an update, so there?s absolutely no info on it.

But even so, users are strongly recommended to download and install this new cumulative update, and until now, there are no reports of failed installs or any other issues experienced after deploying it. But as always, it could take a while until more users get to install it, so we?ll be keeping an eye out on reports to see if there?s something wrong with it.

Botched cumulative updates
The latest cumulative updates released by Microsoft have caused problems on quite a lot of computers, and in most of the cases, they failed to install with error messages that said almost nothing about what went wrong. Microsoft investigated all these complaints and released fixes, but even so, there are users who?re still unable to install cumulative updates.

Microsoft Releases Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB3201845

Microsoft has just rolled out a new cumulative update for Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607) after previously testing with the help of users enrolled in the Windows Insider program.

Windows 10 cumulative update KB3201845 doesn?t bring any new operating system features, as it?s the case with all the other cumulative updates, but only fixes and performance improvements that you can read in full in the box at the end of the article.

For example, one such fix improves ?the reliability of mobile device management (MDM) disenrollment, Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM), Peripheral Component Interface and PowerShell,? according to the changelog.

There are also fixes for issues causing File Explorer to no prompt for credentials when a user logs on with a Microsoft account, as well as repairs for problems causing the System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) client to fail installation when a device is re-imaged using the SCCM task sequence.

The update is called ?Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 and Windows Server 2016: December 9, 2016? and is being shipped right now via Windows Update for computers running any of these two OS versions.

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

Answer:March 14th Cumulative Update 3.99TB Windows Update Cleanup BUG!

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

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

Microsoft will make substantial changes to the way it delivers updates to Windows 7 and 8.1 computers tomorrow when it starts the rollout of this month?s Patch Tuesday, switching to a new servicing model that?s inspired by Windows 10.

Specifically, Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 will start getting rollup updates every month, which are supposed to make it easier for users and IT admins to install them on Patch Tuesdays.

Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 computers will get a security-only quality update every month, and this will be published as ?Security Update? with a unique KB number. Additionally, there?ll be a security monthly quality rollup which is more of a monthly rollup containing all security fixes needed to bring a computer fully up to date.

?This will be published to Windows Update (where all consumer PCs will install it), WSUS, and the Windows Update Catalog. The initial monthly rollup released in October will only have new security updates from October, as well as the non-security updates from September,? Microsoft says.



Non-security fixes
And last but not least, there?ll be a third update that will include non-security fixes and which will be rolled on the third Tuesday of the month ? this means that you?ll get it a week after Patch Tuesday.

?An additional monthly rollup containing a preview of new non-security fixes that will be included in the next mo... Read more

I know that a lot of people have been having issues with this update, but I haven't even been able to get the update to appear in Windows Update, it's not in my Update History so im pretty sure it didn't install without me knowing, and when I check for updates I get "Your device is up to date"

Is there any reason why the update may not be coming through for me?

Microsoft to Release New Windows 10 Cumulative Updates Tomorrow

Microsoft will kick off this month?s Patch Tuesday rollout tomorrow, and in addition to security updates, the firm will also publish new cumulative updates specifically aimed at Windows 10 systems.

Cumulative updates are particularly important for Windows 10 users because they contain all available fixes, including here both security and non-security patches that are available for a specific version.

Tomorrow?s release will be focused on the security front, however, as Microsoft will patch the last known vulnerabilities in the operating system.

All supported versions of Windows 10 will get cumulative updates, and these include the new Creators Update that got the green light in April this year.

The last few cumulative updates for Windows 10 have worked pretty smoothly, with a smaller number of users reporting issues and complaining of failed installs. Furthermore, the updates that are aimed at the Creators Update also installed correctly, and there?s a good chance that the same will happen with tomorrow?s release as well.

Reboots will be needed
Cumulative updates are recommended to be installed as soon as possible, especially because they include fixes that could prevent attackers from compromising systems.

Living proof is the March cumulative updates that addressed the SMB vulnerability in Windows 10 and which protected users of the operating system against the WannaCry ransomware.

Microsoft Finally Got Windows 10 Cumulative Updates Right This Month

Microsoft has a long history of shipping botched Windows updates, but with Windows 10, the company made everything a lot worse, as many of the cumulative updates it published failed to install or caused several other issues once deployed.

As a result, it?s no surprise that there are plenty of users out there who prefer not to install updates when they are released or to keep auto-updates off until others deploy them to determine if everything is working fine.

But since April when the Creators Update goes live, cumulative updates have provided much smoother performance, with the number of issues experienced by Windows 10 users declining substantially to the point where almost everyone can install them correctly.

This is what happened this month when cumulative updates installed correctly at a rate that exceeds 99 percent, and complaints regarding failed installs or problems caused by these patches pretty hard to find online.




Long install times
In most of the cases, users complaining about issues with this month?s cumulative updates, which are KB4025342, KB4025339, and KB4025344, point to long install times. Indeed, cumulative updates sometimes take too long to install, in some cases up to an hour, but in 99 percent of the cases, the process was completed just fine.

This is actually one of the issues that Microsoft also needs to address with cumulative updates, as the install process still ... Read more

I've seen this before I think. Not specifically with this KB but it happened many months ago. The update came through again but installed in seconds.

The KB3081424 have been rolled out today for Windows 10, and it's a Cumulative Update. It'll update a lot of files that are coming out in users' SFC and DISM scans as corrupted. Installing it could fix these files, so I suggest you to install it.Cumulative Update for Windows 10: August 5, 2015This update includes nonsecurity-related changes to enhance the functionality of Windows 10 through new features and improvements.Windows 10 updates are cumulative. Therefore, this package contains all previously-released fixes (see KB 3074683). If you have installed previous updates, only the new fixes that are contained in this package will be downloaded and installed to your computer.

Hi again. It seems I'm just getting a never ending list of problems.

After a recent BSOD crash, Ive been putting my computer back to the way it was. but Ive seemed to run into some problems:

Problem #1 - Microsoft Update:

Hi, I have a problem with a Windows 10 store on my desktop PC. This is not a phone.
I have the latest build 10240 with all of the updates installed. The last few updates installed over last night and then my Store app stopped working.
I searched reddit and found some guys have a similar problem:
https://www.reddit.com/r/Windows10/comments/3ej38n/store_update_stuck_on_00mb/
The thing was that when I tried to open the Store app this morning I've got a message: Before you can shop, we need to update the Store
I then pressed Update button and then It tries to update the Store app.
But then it just says Pending and it doesn't do anything for the whole day now.
I think there must be some other applications waiting for an update and they all got stuck.
Does any have any idea how to open the store?

Answer:Windows 10 Desktop (not for phones) Store update pending. How can I open the store?

Exactly the same problem here in New Zealand on 2 machines. 10240 is installed on both PCs and they simply refuse to download any data from the store that will perform the store update. One PC is sitting on the "pending" which the other gets a little further to "0.0 MB of 40.1 MB...". It is only a few days until official launch so these basic bugs really ought to have been sorted by now :-(

Microsoft Releases Windows 10 Cumulative Updates KB4048955, KB4048954, KB4048953

Microsoft has released a new batch of cumulative updates for Windows 10 as part of the monthly Patch Tuesday rollout supposed to fix security issues in products like Windows and Office.

This time, the cumulative updates for Windows 10 are the following: KB4048955 (1709), KB4048954 (1703), KB4048953 (1607), KB4048952 (1511), and KB4048956 (RTM).

Since they land on Patch Tuesday, the focus is mostly on security bugs, but these cumulative updates also include a large collection of performance improvements and non-security issue resolutions, all of which should be installed on Windows 10 devices as soon as possible.

In the past, we?ve seen lots of cumulative updates causing issues on the Windows 10 systems they were supposed to be installed to, and it remains to be seen if similar bugs are experienced this month as well. Our Windows 10 devices updated correctly and no failed installs occurred.

Truth be told, Microsoft has managed to substantially reduce the percentage of failed installs since the release of the Windows 10 Creators Update and the Fall Creators Update likely brings more improvements in this regard.

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

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

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

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

The update is out now and you can grab the bits by going to Windows Update within the PC settings and checking for updates.
This is a relatively quick patch for Microsoft seeing as the build was released this week, which makes us think that this was likely a known issue before the release. Regardless, the patch is out now and if your machine has had any issues with power / sleep functionality, this should fix it.

Microsoft is investigating freezing issues on PCs after Windows 10 Anniversary Update

Last week, we reported that several users are experiencing freezing issues on their PCs after the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. This usually involved a system freeze after logging in, which rendered the device unresponsive. Several of our readers confirmed that they were experiencing the same issue on different devices and configurations as well, but had been unable to discover a universal fix.

Now, Microsoft has acknowledged the issue, stating that the company has received a "small number of reports", and has confirmed that it is currently investigating the reason behind the problem, as it works on a fix.

According to Microsoft Forum Moderator Basith M, the company is aware that users are experiencing freezing issues on PCs after the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. However, the moderator mentioned that the problem plagues only those with the operating system installed on solid-state drives (SSDs), with apps and data downloaded on separate drives. Basith also went on to say that if users sign in to Windows 10 in Safe Mode, the issue does not occur.




While Microsoft works on a fix for the problem, Basith has suggested a temporary workaround for users, asking them to start their PCs in Safe Mode, and then to transfer apps and data to the same storage device as the operating system. The moderator has also stated that another alternative is to roll back to the previous ver... Read more

It's Patch Tuesday, and that means software updates for all. New cumulative updates are rolling out for Windows 10 PCs, tablets, and phones, bringing the build number to 10586.318.

It's available for everyone, including non-Insiders as well as Insiders that are using the Release Preview ring. This update skips over the last one - build 10586.240 for PCs and 10586.242 for Mobile - which shipped to the Release Preview ring, but never to Production.

As with most cumulative updates, there are no new features. Instead, the new build focuses on fixes and stability improvements.

Here's what's new in build 10586.318 for PCs:

Improved reliability in a number of areas including Cortana, Bluetooth, Shell, Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, Miracast, and USB.
Fixed memory leak that occurs when opening a portable document format (PDF) form multiple times.
Fixed issues with text alignment for right to left languages in Internet Explorer 11 and Microsoft Edge.
Fixed issue that affected Bluetooth function when a PC resumes from sleep.
Fixed issue where user accounts weren't locked out after a number of failed sign in attempts.
Fixed issue with revised daylight saving time.
Fixed issue that sometimes corrupts CompactFlash cards inserted into a card reader.
Fixed issue that caused recorded video to be lost when answering an incoming call on some phones.
Fixed issue that could result in unexpected battery drain while the phone screen is off.

I contacted MS tech support Wednesday and the support tech was unable to resolve the issue after deleting my update logs and running some utility software. The case was escalated Yesterday, the level two tech indicated that some services were corrupted and just initiated a repair install. I just completed the repair install with all the updates and the issue is still not resolved. My update that keeps failing is also called cumulative security update for internet explorer 11 for windows 7 64-bit (KB3038314)

IE 11 cumulative security update for Windows 7 fails to configure after reboot. It then reverts and restarts. Everything else appears to be operating normally. 
 
This is the only update that fails to configure. Install finishes without error, but it won't configure on the boot. 
 
Tried (not in this order):
   Removed IE 11 and added it back through WIndows update. 
   Reset Windows update components. 
   Downloaded and installed update specifically (KB2909921). 
   Ran the "Fix it" (it says it fixes a few things, but doesn't change the problem)
   Installed update with Trend Micro turned off
   *probably other things I can't recall, because I've been at it for too long. 
 
**I have limited time with this machine, because it is otherwise perfectly functional.

Cumulative Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems (KB3116869). Keep getting "Failed to install on (date)". NO other updates will download, either. Everything seeps to be stuck. Get the message: "There were problems installing some updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may help:" The update troubleshooter finds no problems. I have tried to reset the Update process per the instructions supplied by Microsoft. No results there, either. Long story short, I'm not able to get any updates. Anybody have a cure? I'm running a Dell XPS Desktop 2015, 64.

Yup, same here, stuck at 15% downloaded. In the past when my updates stuck I used the following commands to reset the updates:
Entered into the command prompt:
dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth <ENTER>
dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth <ENTER>
That was working but even that doesn't work for me now. Oh look.....another Windows 10 update problem. Fantastic.

Ive tried every possible guide and solution I could find, including applying the update from a full offline installer, nothing works.

I have a different laptop that had no problems at all with this particular update. Just for the sake of clarity the ONLY thing I changed in this Windows installation was changing the directory of user files, if that's whats causing it I would happily change it back.

I would change it back and then see if you are then able to install the update.
If it still does not do it then you can always revert back to what you changed
Remember before you do create a restore point.

Thanks!

Answer:Windows 8 Pro Image with the Cumulative Update patch included?

What cumulative patch - did I miss something?

I haven't got win8 installed atm.

You can put the updates into your installation image easily enough - just pop the .msu files in with dism.

Win7 dism will do it fine.

Normally, you check the Microsoft Update Catalog to grab stuff. But this is a cumulative update that's been superseded by a later update. Looks like MS is removing older cumulative updates when they post newer ones.

Few users are reporting that the just released Cumulative Update KB3194798 is failing to install on their Windows 10 computers with a with Failed to complete installing updates, Undoing changes message.

I've tried to process this update a few times through Windows Update, but it fails each time, uninstalls, and puts things back where they were, says a user on Microsoft Answers.

KB3194798 is a security update and hence important that it be installed.
If you are facing this Windows 10 update problem, the only thing I can suggets for the moment is to clear the contents of the SoftwareDistributin folder, disable your antivirus software and then try to install the updae again.

The update fails to install on some computers, users claim

Microsoft rolled out Windows 10 cumulative update KB3097617 earlier today and the first reports pointing to problems experienced during installation or even after that are already reaching the web.

For example, a number of users who turned to Microsoft's Community forums explain that KB3097617 fails to install on their PCs, undoes all changes and then restarts the machine, pushing it in an infinite reboot loop just like it happened with previous cumulative updates.

Microsoft user Darkc0de explains what happens on his Windows 10 computer:

?The update is just not installing, after asking for a restart windows update, initializes goes till 30% Then PC restarts and from 30, goes till 54% and restarts again this time it says We Could Not complete undoing changes and updates 2- 3 Team PC restarts again saying undoing changes and finally finally PC starts.?

http://news.softpedia.com/news/wind...b3193494-also-failing-to-install-508542.shtml

Microsoft has recently released Windows 10 cumulative update KB3193494 in order to bring the KB3189866 saga to an end, but it turns out that there are users who are experiencing issues with this new patch as well.

Some of those who were offered the new cumulative update are reporting problems when attempting to install it, and the way it happens looks very similar to what others have experienced in the past.

In most of the cases, the cumulative update fails to install, and it simply rolls back before getting users back to the desktop. The update is then reoffered and redownloaded before the system is once again rebooted to attempt the install.

Users who couldn?t install the original KB3189866 update were confident that this new one fixes the problems, so they rushed to install it.

?I have already read some issues with this update and that you should install the offline updater. It has the same problem. Microsoft released KB3193494 to resolve the download issue, so I tried again. Still the same problem,? one of them explains on Microsoft?s Community forums.



Post-installation problems
Others are reporting issues spotted after the update successfully installed on their computers and upon removal, everything seems to be returning to normal, which is living proof that this latest cumulative update is the source of the problems.

You might wish to try an in-place upgrade repair install after running chckdsk to verify your disk.

I'm assuming you don't have any useful restore points or disk images (highly recommended technique to create compressed copies of your system which acts as a backup and a means of restoring your PC to exactly as was and more).

Here are my notes:
Precede it with this in case sthg has happened to your file system:

From an admin command prompt
[Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
chkdsk C: /F
Your PC will need to restart.
Make sure the result is clear or fixed.
Post back the result, which will be on the screen briefly.
Otherwise you can get the result as follows:

An In-place upgrade repair install will fix many things, but not those where the settings are not changed by the procedure.

For this you need an installation medium with the same base build as you have installed.

Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3194496)

Three days ago my desktop tried to update 1607 3 times. Each time on reboot it says failed to update and reverts. Each day it tries again at shutdown.

Yesterday my second(son's) computer updated and all I could see was a black screen with a circle. Had to do a repair and it reverted back 2 two updates. Note, this computer does not have integrated graphics - so that fix process would not work.

Now the wife's computer wants to update but I am not restarting it - if hers goes down it will be hell in my household.

I looked on the web and don't see much about this update getting fixed by Microsoft. Any ideas what I should do? My main computer is asking to try again and it will just fail or worse - black screen. I told the family not to shutdown the wife's but I know at some point it will try to do the update on its own.

This is the worst mess we have ever had, but all I see are web pages about the anniversary update - not this one.

Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB3197954 Fails to Install as Well

Windows 10 cumulative updates are certainly pretty helpful for the majority of users running Microsoft?s latest OS version, but at the same time, they are turning into sort of nightmare for others who can?t simply install them successfully.

Issues with Windows 10 cumulative updates have been around for a while, and Microsoft has tried to fix them on several occasions, but for some reason, they keep coming back pretty much in the same form.

KB3197954 makes no exception, and after being pushed to Windows 10 users last week, it appears that it fails to install on a number of machines due to a cause that?s yet to be determined.

More than just installation issues
Posts on Microsoft?s Community forums are pointing towards various problems experienced with cumulative update KB3197954, including system freezes, but in most of the cases, it?s the typical ?failing to install? issue that makes it impossible for some users to deploy the patch on their computers.

?Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3197954) keeps failing to install on my system. The install starts fine but while restarting claims the install has failed and reverts everything.

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





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



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