Q: Cumulative update for Windows 10 Version 1511 (KB3176493)=Please help=

I know most people here are complaining about anniversary update 1607 but Im not able to even reach that, Update KB3176493 is causing me a huge headache, it installed and reversed install about 20 times now, I almost cant use the computer any more. 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.
Good luck and keep us posted on how you get on

Hi,
The Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 (KB3116900) Failed to Install,
It showed a split second error code on the windows loading screen (The black Screen with windows logo and the loading dots.) and then on the second screen it said windows couldn't install this update, rolling back changes and things and went back to desktop and in Updates the Update is listed as "Failed to Install"

I tried the normal measures of Disable Av and Trouble shoot the Updater.
If any one has any other ways to get this update installed, then please share.
Update : Found out the error code which it shows up

Code:

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.

Hello all.
Running windows 10 pro 64 bit.
I've updated from Version 1511 to the anniversary update, 1607.
Or at least, I thought I did.
The update went well, no hiccups, no errors. Used windows update, let it downloaded and install and rebooted. Alas, system still shows OS Version 1511.
Used update again, same thing, rebooted, 1511.
Went to the windows site, downloaded the windows10upgrade9252.exe, ran it, same exact issue, rebooted, still showing version 1511.
Error logs show no issues. Disabled all external drives, turned off anti-virus, etc, repeated, rinsed, rebooted, still version 1511.
Only think I've not done is burned an ISO to DVD and updated from that.
Any clues as to what's going on?
Thanks!

Hi All,

I've been looking around the Internet for a solution to "Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3147458)" failing to update; and while there are a multitude of success stories out there, none of the solutions worked for me.

In researching an unrelated issue, it occurred to me that I may have a customization that might be interfering with this update, and the (now mandatory...sigh) Windows Update process:

I have moved my \Users directory to a custom location using a junction (a symbolic link/shortcut).

There are many (unsupported) ways to do this, and a quick Google shows that a multitude of people are not happy with the standard "Users folder lives on the system disk and you can move libraries/directories using the System Settings" solution provided by Microsoft. This is especially common for folks who boot from an SSD, but have tons and tons of large files which wouldn't fit on that SSD; especially if you anticipate the need to create new user accounts but don't want to write a script or hand-configure each new account to move the directories to the secondary volume via the available System Settings.

My method (as found online) was to robocopy my initial Users folder just after a clean install of Windows 10, and then create a junction at C:\Users which pointed to D:\Users (which is my large HDD).

This causes a problem with some updates when they need to make adjustments to files stored within \Users.

I installed Windows 10 around the time it came out, much to my delight I faced no problems with it, but now after reading about this 'November Update' that touts many of the features I wanted back. I read on Microsoft's own site that to get the update I would have to of had Windows 10 for 31+ Plus days e.g. a day over the time limit to go back to Win 8.1 or 7. It's long past the 31 days but the "Go back to Windows 7" is still there?

I had that also with this update.
So here is what I did to get over it.
I restarted it then ran the Disc Clean Up app
Which cleared all traces from the Disc
Then let it download and install, which took some time
Then it installed to 30% then Restarted then finished at 100%
Which again sat there for some time then flashed up it had finished and now running all ok on all my systems
Hope that may hopefully help you with your problem

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.

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.

A:Still can't update to windows 10 Home, version 1511, 10586.

You had been using Windows Update which you have failed to install 10586.

Consider trying the other method also recommended by Microsoft itself.
Download the Media Creation Tool (MCT)

Make sure you select the same language, same bit version and same Windows Edition as the one you are now running.
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10

Once it is downloaded, run the Tool > select Create installation media for another PC.
That will begin downloading the ISO file to your computer.
When it is downloaded, right click at the ISO file > click Mount > click Setup.exe.
That will begin installing.
You have the choice of keeping your settings, files and apps, or keeping nothing.
No product key is required.
Activation is automatic.

Hey all,

Despite having cleaned out temporary files, previous windows installation files, and anything else unnecessary, I could only get about 7-8Gb of free space, which proved insufficient for Windows to update to version 1511.

It suggested using an external drive to handle the update files, so I put in a 64Gb microSD card. Despite selecting this, however, it still can't update. It goes from asking for ~8.9Gb extra free space on C:/ to ~8.3Gb.

There's got to be some way for these 32Gb eMMC to handle Windows updates, surely?

A:Satellite Click 10: Cannot apply Windows Update to version 1511

Did you format the SD card ? You have to format it on the machine first . search, formatting SD card windows 10. Best to put in a spare SD card and later keep this card as it will have a copy of your update on it for future resets . Then pop in another good SD card for future storage, but some apps etc wont go to it, but you can get them to do so. search, getting your apps to store and operate on external drives. Don't use any other antivirus package except the built in windows defender, it is specially light in size and wont use up much storage and it will protect you well enough. You can safely delete all Toshiba stuff that comes with it to make room. also there is so many things on windows 10 you can do without search stuff you don't really need windows 10.

I have been trying for a full week now, to no avail. Whenever I apply the update, it goes to the "Restarting" screen...and gets stuck there indefinitely. Even after a few hours, it's still on that screen. So ultimately I have to force shutdown my PC (after which I can use it as per normal). I also do not believe I have any malware on my PC (have scanned multiple times with Kaspersky just to be sure).

I had updated to Windows 8 > 8.1 > 10 on this same PC before and never faced a single issue. I also never mess around much with default system settings.

Meanwhile, for my laptop, the update went extremely smoothly.

So can someone please help me out here?

Disable (preferrably uninstall) your Antivirus utility before attempting the upgrade.Restart a few times then try again.Disable General USB Devices (example - Smart Card Reader).If you are using a SCSI hard disk, make sure you have drivers available for your storage device on a thumdrive and it is connected. During Windows 10 setup, click the Custom Advanced Option and use the Load Driver command to load the appropriate driver for the SCSI drive.

MS made me update a couple of days ago. I just discovered this morning that it disabled Norton 360. It also removed CCLeaner, and turned off my Norton firewall. I have to reauthorize some other products but my main problem is that I don't know if I have antivirus anymore..
I try to turn Windows Defender on and it tells me that it is off but I have no option t turn it on. Norton wont open, is no longer on the bar at the bottom but is listed in "APPs", but like I said, wont open.
I tried to reinstall but I get a popup in the lower right telling me that Norton 360 wont run on this version of Windows.
It comes free with Comcast/Xfinity and has always worked well, until now. I did manage to turn the Windows firewall on. I set the default browser to EDGE, which I DO NOT like because it rearranges all of my favorites.
I cannot find an answer. I am just about ready to move to a MacBook for regular use. I have an offline computer for audio work. I have not upgraded it to W-10 and frankly I'm scared to. It has no antivirus because it has no email and very limited online use... ok, I digress.
What do I do to get Norton Working?
I posted the question on the Xfinity board and will on the Norton forums.

I fixed it, took most of the day. I finally rolled back to the earlier version of Windows. CCleaner came back BUT I checked, Norton had not scanned my system since 9/29/15!!! Prior to that it was scanning regularly I had not noticed. I am NOT happy with Windows-10. I've about had it. I'm about ready to get a MacBook for the web and keep my DAW on Windows. I hardly ever go online with it and it doesn't have anything on it except recording programs, Acronis, and a few other things.
I feel like dealing with MS is like dealing with the government, I just don't like the whole attitude of "WE Updated Your PC".. They shuld have said "You Updated Your PC"... small things like that matter, it shows their arrogance... and my files were NOT right where I left them.

I have Windows 10 Pro, Version 1511. I've not updated to Version 1607 because of FUD regarding the NVIDIA drivers. Starting a couple of days ago, just after a Windows update, I have a 1511 problem: when I boot up, the displays (I have 4) blink at seemingly random times, and also power on and off at strange times. I wait but never see Windows fully loaded.

I read somewhere that F5 was the key to use to go into safe mode (I remain unsure about the veracity of that claim). But, in desperation, I tried the F5 key: it didn't appear to go into safe mode, and booted up normally, giving me a clean system.

I suspect this is a device driver problem: should I go to NVIDIA's website and just download the latest device driver? I've had NVIDIA problems on various platforms starting about six months before the original RTM release, and all three of my Windows 10 platforms have NVIDIA display adapters.

Howdy,

I have been trying to download and install Cumulative Update, Win 10, Version 1607 for x64-based systems since Sept. 15 but so far I am coming up empty. I realize the help forums have been loaded with folks having the same problem but I decided to start my own thread instead of joining in ones already started in case it is a result of what kind of computer I am using and the Programs I am running on it.

First of all, I am running on an All-In-One HP Pavilion 23-g017c (x64) AMD A6-5200 APU w/Radeon HD Graphics, running Windows 10, Version 1607, Build 14393.105, using the Edge Browser while utilizing Windows Firewall and Windows Defender as my major security programs.

I have tried daily to install the update via Windows Update but it does not install for one reason or the other. Some of the threads I have visited the last few days suggest to manually download and install it from the Windows Update Catalog. I tried this manual install both yesterday and today and came up empty both times.

I have never had any major problems with Windows 10 when it comes to receiving updates so this has me dead in my tracks.

So, basically I have three questions:

(1) Any ideas of anything I can do to get this update on my computer? or

(2) If people like me are having trouble with a particular update will Microsoft eventually come out with a fix? and/or

I have ugraded to version 1607 and I notice the restart time is 2.5 longer than version 1511. The boot time is about the same on both versions. I also did a clean install of version 1607 and the restart time was still about 2.5 times as long as version 1511.

I just upgraded my Win 10 machine to "Threshold-2" version 1511. All went smoothly! But it added 10GB to the hard drive storage used.

I presume this is due to the ability to "roll back" to the prior version (I have no Restore Points because that feature is disabled).

If I'm willing to commit to version 1511 and do not need to preserve the ability to roll back, is there a way to reclaim this space? I know one way is to do a "reset," but that wipes all my apps, requiring a reinstall, which is a pain. Is there a better/easier way?

As I understand it Win10 1511 10586 is more or less an upgrade over 10240 and as such there may be a Windows.old Folder on your HDD. Four of my computers had that after the same Folder left over from Win7 and Win8.1 were deleted. Might try disk cleanup, may get rid of it. Or simply wait 32 days to see if it automatically deleted.

Right now I'm suffering issues on Windows 10 after upgrading to version 1511

The issues include:
Performance issues - my laptop is suffering lag and hangs randomly (this had never happened before version 1511)
Longer boot - It would take 30 seconds or longer to boot, instead of before that's taking just 3 seconds. (I noticed that after the laptop booted, it is booting again, acting like a bootloop
Slow app opening - Opening Google Chrome would take 6-7 seconds than it would open instantly before
Waking up from sleep - After opening my laptop, it would be on black screen for few seconds, than before it would never be on black screen
Shutting down - It takes 15 seconds or longer to shut down, assuming it's not actually a problem at all, but it is a problem... It wouldn't take 15 seconds as, before it would take 2-5 seconds.

Hiya

This is a first time post but I've used this forum for the great info, but I'm stuck on this one.... I've got a new laptop Lenovo 510s 14ISK I've used the media creation tool to do a clean install of Windows 10 (Crazy amounts of bloatware). All is ok and works great but it's installed version 1607 and I'm sure some of you are aware of the problem of Windows reading external hard drives in raw format.... Well that's happened to me. Now this might seem stupid on my part but I can't roll back to 1511 as it doesn't exist on the new system, it seems like I've done this at a really bad time and now I need an ISO with 1511 version so I can actually read my hard drives. I hope this makes sense and someone could point me in the right direction or advise.

At the beginning for not reason at all but afterwards I've noticed that it was freezing during this video autoplay in facebook for example.Other symptoms were that youtube was not functioning, in any of the browsers. Best results were in Chrome but also there the sound was not functioning. Googling it did not helped so I've tried somehow to solve it without a clean install (**bleep** Microsoft way...)and I've found the solution: I've reinstalled the video driver.

Upgrade to Windows 10 Home, version 1511, 10586 will not download and install.

A:problem with upgrade to windows 10 home, version 1511, 10586

You can download the Windows 10 ISO from Microsoft's Tech Bench site. The standard version is Windows 10 (others are restricted) and it can install/update both Windows 10 Home and Pro, depending on previous version (for upgrade) or serial (for clean-install). Download 32-bit or 64-bit according to your present Windows version.

A warning for English: There are two choices for English which are misleading. If you download the wrong language version you cannot use it to upgrade your present Windows version!

To save you the trouble:

"English" = American English (US) which most users have when installing the English version of Windows.

"International English" = British English (GB) which are mainly used in UK. This version cannot be used to upgrade English US Windows! Beware!

When we try to install the latest version of the Intel video driver (20.19.15.4454 ,A03), which was released last week by Dell, we receive the following message:
This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software.
We are running Windows 10 Enterprise 1511 x64 on OptiPlex 7020 small-form factor machines.  The rror appears on all machines of this type when trying to install the driver.
We really need to get this video driver because we've had severe video problems on these machines when Windows 10 is used.
The latest version of the driver that we can currently get is 10.18.15.4279, which was released 8/24/2015.
Is the driver corrupt?

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.

I have been attempting various 'fixes' on a Dell Inspiron N5010 laptop since the release of Windows-10 Build-1511.  The original Win-10 installation was fine but the 1511 Update consistently failed at 40% (23% into the Drivers & Features part).  Non of the 'fixes I tried actually worked and the installation continued to collapse at 40%.
Last night I was trying a new (to me) Driver Updating program from Auslogics (Driver Updater) in an attempt to fix an issue on my Advent Desktop - after purchasing the full copy of the driver updater it downloaded drivers which other driver update programs had not found before and it DID fix my issue.  Consequently, I decided to try it on the Dell laptop as I wondered if it was a driver issue that was preventing the update to Build 1511.
The Auslogics Driver Updater found half a dozen drivers that Neither Driver Max nor Driver Booster 3 had found and after installing them I tried the Windows Update again.  This time it ran through to completion without any problems at all.  I am still uncertain as to which of the drivers was the problem but obviously Microsoft needs to take a look at their update code and to download necessary drivers when an issue is identified (or at least give a more meaningful error message than merely "The update has failed".

I hope this helps others with the same or similar problems with the 1511 update.  I would be interested to hear how you go on.

All the articles on this update fail to specify Home or Pro!
I have Pro, and have not received the update. It would stand to reason that the number 1511 would be reserved for one or the other version...but I note that some of the functionality that is supposed to be in this update is not available to me on my machine.
I contacted MS Support and they advised me that the update is for Home rather than Pro users, and that Pro machines are on a different cycle and already have the functionality of the update. I tested this, however, with the Settings|Start Menu item that in the update should allow an extra column of tiles i.e. "show more tiles"; that option does not appear on my build.
I have no idea what this is about, and again note that the articles touting this update do not specify home or pro...I'd like the functionality (but not enough to PAY to revert to a different, supposedly less-functional version of the OS, to do so).
Thoughts?

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) .

I'm having trouble with my Windows 10 recently. After noticing i can't download the new Forza 6 Apex, i found out that my Windows 10 is some old version. (Compliation 10240)

Until there was ok, "oh i just need to update it". But here comes the problem : My Windows 10 DOES NOT UPDATE FOR HELL.

I've tried everything, using the Windows Update app, downloading from Media Creation Tool, downloading the ISO to a USB stick from Media Creation Tool (Says "Not possible to install correctly, please reboot and try again" or whatever). Nothing works.

I dont know what the hell i need to do, and yes, i do have 100GB of free space.

Right now my Windows Update downloads this file : > windows10.0-kb3147461-x64-express < And i have tried to use CDM to install it, as i saw this forum, but didn't worked as well. It failed around 70% or something.

My computer is running Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows Update refuses to download and install the version 1511 update. I've tried to press "Search for updates" multiple times, but it still keeps telling me that it's updated. The last update (apart from Windows Defender updates) was KB3163017 which was installed 8 days ago. The installation of Windows 10 itself was made longer than one month ago so the 31 day protection shouldn't be an issue either.

I've tried to search for a solution, but all I could find included downloading the .ISO file and install it manually, which I'd like to avoid as I then must burn it on a disc and I'd prefer if Windows Update could just take care of it as it does with the other updates.

So my questions are:

Is this normal, should Enterprise versions get these major updates via Windows Update or not?Is there anyone here that also use the Enterprise version and have received the update via Windows Update?Are there any solutions to this problem apart from updating with an .ISO?

A:Windows 10 Enterprise - Windows Update Can't Find Update 1511

I don't think Enterprise upgrades to next major builds through Windows Updates. That is so the corporation using Enterprise can maintain control of the versions of software on their computers which is extremely important for compatibility reasons among others.

Why can't you just mount a downloaded ISO file and run setup.exe from the mounted ISO file? Why do you have to burn it to DVD first?

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.

Hello,
I'm trying to install the latest Windows Update - Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3189866) - however it's stuck at 45%. Restart won't help. Did you had this issue?

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 won't install due to space... and it wanted 5 GB which I managed to do but now it says 9 or 10 GB it needs free.  There's nothing else to delete application wise to free up that much space.
I'm willing to wipe the machine clean and do a fresh install to start from this latest stable Windows 10 update.  I read all the forums here for space issues but I couldn't find instructions for doing a clean install... I download the Media Creation Tool to download an ISO to an attached SSD drive (which has plenty of space... and Windows Update initially asked if it could download to a different location and I pointed it to the SSD drive but it apparently still needs 9-10 GB of "local" drive space free to do the update.
Anyhow...  can you tell me what license keys I need to find and where and what process I can go through to download an installable version of the latest Windows 10 version and properly install it on this 3050?  
I repeat... I've uninstalled every installable program that's not core to the OS and still can't free up enough space... Windows 10 Update won't use any of the free space on the USB attached SSD so that's not an option either.

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.?
