Re: I downloaded Windows 10 vers 1803

I updated both my PC's to insiders preview 18312 yesterday. One PC updated OK 

The Other didn't take and I had to install Windows 10 from DVD and

re-update to 18312 again, now I have to re-install all the software again😣

Re: I downloaded Windows 10 vers 1803

I was on my sister's laptop last week as Windows decided to update itself.  It said that it was "getting things ready" and was on 0%.  She wanted to use the thing, so I left her to it.  Some time passed and I asked her was it working.  There was disk activity going on so I left her to get on with what she was doing.  I had some stuff I needed to do so did that and went back to get some lunch.  I asked her was it working and she replied "No.".  It had been stuck on getting things ready for almost 2 hours.  I switched the laptop off a couple of times and rebooted, then ran WU again.

"Getting things ready 0%".  I decided to switch it off again and went here: http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Home.aspx having made a note of the offending update.  I then proceeded to download the cumulative update.  Edge asked the question "Run, Save or Cancel", so I hit Run.  Nothing happened.  No download, no progressing %age, nothing.

The fix:  I went into task manager then services, found 2 Windows Update services and stopped them.  I then went back into Edge, and successfully downloaded the CU standalone, but saved it instead of running it.  I went back into task manager, restarted the 2 WU services and ran the CU standalone, which finally worked.  I restarted the machine and ran WU.  "Pending download" was followed by "Getting things ready 0%" for about 2-3 minutes even though it was successfully installed on the updates list. Eventually it said everything was up to date.  What should've taken 20 minutes tops took over 2½ hours.Man Frustrated

Other updates installed without any fuss.Smiley Indifferent

Re: I downloaded Windows 10 vers 1803

We don't need no stinking badges, we just want a system and updates that actually work!

Re: I downloaded Windows 10 vers 1803

Got a couple more cumulative updates today.

The waffly nonsense one: https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/4481031/january-22-2019-kb4481031

…and the one that fixes some borked stuff: https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/4476976/windows-10-update-kb4476976 but the issue below may still persist:

After installing KB4480116, some users report that they cannot load a webpage in Microsoft Edge using a local IP address. Browsing fails or the webpage may become unresponsive.

 This means you'll have to faff about with Edge to log in to your router (or use another browser).Smiley Indifferent  Fortunately mine works.Smiley Happy

Re: I downloaded Windows 10 vers 1803

In the last two preview releases I found that Dropbox no longer works (I have used it for years) and even uninstalling and re-installing doesn't fix it, it comes up with error 0x80096010 everytime now and refuses to install.🤦‍♂️

Re: I downloaded Windows 10 vers 1803

Not sure if this is any use: https://www.dropbox.com/individual

They probably want you to pay for stuff.

The error code goes back to XP(SP3)Smiley Surprised: https://www.bing.com/search?q=0x80096010&form=EDNTHT&mkt=en-gb&httpsmsn=1&plvar=0&refig=0741eb1cdb41...

Just got the above updates.  One is handy if you're Japanese. WU worked as it should, which is a bonus.
