    Hello Windows Insiders!

    Thank you very much to those of you who joined in on yesterday’s Beam webcast for our Bug Bash! It was a pleasure to hear from so many familiar names in real time. We loved talking with you all and definitely want to do so more often. We will vary the times so that we can hit various regions around the world!

    Are you a Windows Developer? Today is Windows Developer Day! Check out our livestream from 9am-1pm PST, which outlines what’s new for developers in the Windows 10 Creators Update. Whether you’re building for the web or UWP, the latest consumer app or line of business tool, there’s something in it for you. Tomorrow will be our “Developer focus” day for the Bug Bash, so tune in today to learn what’s new, and get ready to bash on it! We’ll have a new set of Developer-focused quests ready for you in the Feedback Hub tomorrow.

      I’m guessing they fixed Windows Update. Mine seems to be downloading normally with this build.

        It has been 9 hours since they pushed the BIG RED BUTTON and I have yet to see any Build after pushing my little black Update Button.

        However, the servers seem to be much more responsive with the SCAN AND REPLY that I am up to date.
        That is improved over the last 2 or 3 weeks.

        May have to wait for the morning, it would not be the fist time.

      In my experience, Windows Update has been a problem since 15007. Search for updates runs forever, or it sits downloading at 0% endlessly. If you try to stop the service, it doesn’t stop.
      Here’s what I’ve done to make it work for me 15007 to 15007 to 15019 to 15025 and yesterday to 15031.
      I am running in a Parallels VM on a Mac.

      GPEdit settings:
      Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Update\Configure Auto Updates Enabled =2 Notify
      Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Delivery Optimization\Download Mode Enabled =Bypass100

      Windows Update Service = manual (this should be set by GPEdit)

      1. Disable WU service – reboot. (This is the only way I have found to stop it once search for updates begins.)
      On reboot:
      2. Set WU back to manual (it should not restart automatically)
      3. In an elevated PowerShell run “restart-service WinRM” (got this hint from Gunter Born) – reboot
      On reboot:
      4. In Settings\Windows Update search for updates
      For me, this has dropped $Windows.~BT in the root of C: (it may just sit there without increasing from +/-60-80MB, but that seems to wake it up)
      5. If the download doesn’t start for real, reboot again and hit “Retry” in Settings\WU

      This has worked for me now three times. Maybe it will help others.

        All done more than twice PKCano 🙁

        Add ‘Stop’ Update Orchastator for WU to your List

        1. Disable WU service – reboot. (This is the only way I have found to stop it once search for updates begins.)
        On reboot:

        One just has to ‘Stop’ WU 2-3 times in my experience.

        The thing PKCano, the Server Scan is FAST, then tells me I am up to Date! 😥

        Thanks to caring, I have covered the base Twitter and WebSites. 😛
        I will drop in on the partition every so often and check WU….

          One point I failed to mention. Before the procedure (not immediately before, but sometime after the last update) I have run Disk Cleanup\System Files including DO, WU, Win install, cache, and any old ver and CCleaner including Temporary Files, Memory Dumps, Win Log Files, Win Error Reporting, DNS Cache, and Old Prefetch.

          The first time I tried successfully was between here https://www.askwoody.com/forums/topic/new-windows-10-beta-build-is-out/#post-10776
          and here https://www.askwoody.com/forums/topic/new-windows-10-beta-build-is-out/#post-10783
          and the “DONE” a couple of posts below.

          the Server Scan is FAST, then tells me I am up to Date!

          One time early on I also got the notice the system was up to date. That MAY have been the time I found an orphaned $Windows.~BT folder (and I did not look for what else). Running Disk Cleanup and CCleaner removed that.

          Just saying, sometimes “Dummies” don’t know what they’re doing, but my track record is 3 out of 3 (without standing on my head).

            All done same day I installed 15025, just before I do an Image Backup. Have done it at least once since before Incremental Image Backup. Nothing has returned.

            @Windowsinsider has been in touch so MS is aware but they have nothing at this time. What they usually do however is pass this info on to the Servers/loads people. I also tried cycling the Rings, which has helped it the past, but no Joy this time.

            Just saying, sometimes “Dummies” don’t know what they’re doing, but my track record is 3 out of 3 (without standing on my head).

            I don’t believe your a dummy, it takes us all to get through this sometimes. I have had my share of easy Upgrades toooo. 🙂

          I think Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Update\Configure Auto Updates Enabled =2 Notify is on the way out, although still working.
          Microsoft says the “default” (in the Group Policy sense) is option 3 – Auto download and notify for install. There is not much difference, except for the download of the patches happening in the background, while they are available. There is nothing like the Windows 7 behaviour about installing at shutdown.
          Another option which has merit is Configure Automatic Updates to Disabled. Check for updates button is still available starting with 1607 and allows the manual triggering of the update.

          I also found the DO setting to 100 the best, at least until something gets improved in the DO behaviour. The next best from my observations is 0 in 1507 and 1511 only, not in 1607.

          Notice that I have not made any reference to the Insider versions as I stopped experimenting with them from while now, but most behaviour should still be like in 1607.

      @windowsinsider has been tracking my progress but either them or me have any solutions on Build 14025.1000.

      Therefore I am rolling back to 14986.1001 mid Dec once again. I have always been able to Upgrade from that Image.

      Build15025.0: WOOOW, This Build is a Breath of Fresh Air, once I got the First Download.

      FB HUB: https://aka.ms/O9cn16

      Waiting for the First Download was the most brutal part.

      1. D/L was NON UUP, got ESD>> ISO.
      2. Deep Cleaning and Latest Troobleshooter a prerequisite.
      3. D/L was UUP, got UUP >> ISO.
      4, Mounted ISO >>> Installed, took about 20 minutes.

      I noticed somethings that usually are changed or started were not, that is OKAY.

      Old Problems already Reported, not fixed DISM “RestoreHealth”

      New problems upvoted, Dysfunctional Notifications Popup

      Thank You, last 3 Builds were Brutal…

      This process worked very well if the above steps are follow. I am very impressed so far.

        I have one machine that I “leapfrogged” to 15025, then upgraded to 15031. It’s working pretty well…

    • #95213

      …….

      Notice that I have not made any reference to the Insider versions as I stopped experimenting with them from while now, but most behavior should still be like in 1607.

      CH100,

      Don’t be to sure of yourself. You MIGHT be in for a surprise. I have not seen this confirmed by anyone else(but that doesn’t mean nobody else has experienced this) BUT on the last 5 or so FAST Ring Builds I have had to change the Permissions on my AU/MU/WU Registry Controls. I was checking them as I do after an Upgrade, and Low and Behold they were turned off or gone completely, which was a nonHappening up until then.

      I ran my Registry Scripts and rescanned, they were there. I did RegEdit on them out of Registry Scanner by NirSoft(see Tools).

      TO MY ASTONISHMENT after a couple minutes, I watched the system change them back and delete one, right before my eyes(updated RegEdit in the later Builds)!!!

      Well says I, I know how to sort this out, or so I thought!!! I will just give the System Read Only “Permissions”. Right, one would think so BUT not so fast!

      I restarted, immediately Scanned, RegEdit, and Watched the System change my Registry Changes again. Well, Well, says I, I have never had to employ “Deny” in the Registry Permissions BUT there is always a first time…. It was that day…. 🙁

      After futzing around I came up with the best combination of Read Only accesses and Deny Write Accesses.

      It has worked ever since through Updates and Upgrades on both Fast Ring and Preview Ring. Lord Help us, if they resort to controlling those with “Trusted Installer”, the Ultimate in SYSTEM ACCESS.
