Angry Windows 10 - Fall feature update

I'm rapidly losing patience with Microsoft! Far more rapidly than the installation of the Windows 10, version 1709

It started two day and ago and has still not finished...

Re: Windows 10 - Fall feature update

The moral of that story, should not have gone to Windows 10.
Thankfully I have stayed with Win7.

Anyhow, sorry you're having those problems.

It took about 2 hours on my laptop I thought that was long. Do you have a slow internet connection or perhaps your disk is nearly full.

Unhappy Re: Windows 10 - Fall feature update

It's an I3 laptop with only a quarter of the disc used.

Loads of reports on line of the same thing happens on all sorts of machines.

Fortunately I have an IPad, so I am just letting it get on with it.......

Re: Windows 10 - Fall feature update

The Microsoft update service (wsauserv) has a habit of running forever and in the process chewing up lots of CPU time. I really can't for the life of me understand what it's doing when it gets into this mess. It's not downloading anything or installing anything - just grinding through something on your PC to figure out what to do. In the past I've fixed it by clearing down the Windows software distribution database.

I'd check if that's the case with you Graham and if it is to try this from the command line:

net stop wuauserv

cd %systemroot%

ren SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old

net start wuauserv

That will re-initialise the update service back to a clean position.

If you can't stop wsauserv then it might be because your AV software is preventing it. If so, temporarily disable that.

Re: Windows 10 - Fall feature update

God - how I hate the Fischer Price Windows system!

I only use it for Photoshop and switch the W10 computer on when I need to process photos. I always do so with a heavy heart, and the last time felt physically sick when I did.

It's like dealing with a madman - constant popups asking me what I want to do with files, unprompted windows opening! W7 was fairly tolerable, but when I 'upgraded' to W10, the system splattered every icon it could find across the desktop, filling the screen. I'm thoroughly sick of it!

It's really refreshing to get back to a sane OS like Linux!

Jim

Re: Windows 10 - Fall feature update

I got so fed up with Windows that I changed to Mac. I haven't regretted it for a second! I can't say that Macs are perfect (nothing is) but at least I've forgotten some of the swear words I used to use regularly when my Windows computer was on!

To quote Microsoft:

Worth trying the ISO file approach as this separates the network download from the actual installation; details at:

Using the ISO file indicated in the link would re-install Win10 completely and erase all existing files and data. Unless as stated, I'm mistaken.

Hi John have a read of the text e.g.

Quote:
The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is the latest revision of Microsoft's desktop operating system. The previous version, called the Creators Update was launched in April 2017. Users running previous versions of Windows 10 will be able to upgrade to the latest revision multiple ways. One of the most reliable and convenient ways is to use the ISO file.

I used the same Win 10 ISO file to install Win 10 on the laptop, i'm currently using. Yes it will install the latest updates but as far as I know it is a complete system re-install with full data deletion. Hence the advice to backup and create a copy image before using it.

Did you see the part

Windows 10 now has a "Windows Sub-system for Linux". It's a compatibility mode that allows Linux command-line tools to run without the need for a virtual machine to be running (so instant start up etc). It's quite a neat feature if you want to use Linux command-line tools within the Windows environment. It's a bit like Cygwin, but somewhat more native and better integrated.

Yeahbut - it still needs firing up the execrable W10 system!

(I have used Cygwin, but can't really see the point. I can always go to my Linux laptop and do the job properly.)

Re: Windows 10 - Fall feature update

After three days of "preparing to update", I've just got a new picture of a lake and messages saying how good this is going to be...

Thanks Paul for the tip on renaming the update history file, I think that may have helped a bit.

If the update has failed to download correctly it may be stuck in a loop. I would be tempted to stop it and try manually as above.

That's what I had to do, as I was one of the many that suffered the 66% freeze.

I doubt that you can see the difference, but this is my first posting using the new W10 system...
