        Win 10-1909

        A week or so ago Windows Update wanted to update: Microsoft – Printer – 6/22/2006 12:00:00 AM – 6.1.7233.1

        I thought it odd that a 2006 update was coming in, but decided to do it. It failed to install. Every day since, it tries again and fails until I finally hid the update.

        Throws the following error:

        Log Name: System

        Thoughts? Ideas? It seems there are others with this starting Nov 5th for some or most. No answers I have found.

        Welcome to the forum.

        We usually suggest you not install driver updates as MS have a poor record in this area.
        The “if it ain’t broke” motto is useful here.

        Keep an eye on the updates, you may find MS updates / removes that one.

        cheers, Paul

        Thanks Paul.

        This seems to be a very odd duck, aside from the good advice.

        I have read elsewhere there are “optional” updates and if I recall drivers are part of that. But I have never seen an optional update on the Windows Update Setting page. I’m on 1909.  Just like others mention Feature Updates being separate and requiring separate downloading. Not for me. is there something I can set or change in my Windows Updates? I have GPedit postposing and wushowhide hiding everything I choose not to install (just 057, feature update and this printer driver now) and an uncheck for receive updates for other Microsoft updates. But the other settings elude me.

        I am having this problem also. This update is offered on Windows Update, seems to update OK but the it is reported as a failure to update. The update is then offered again. I have tried to get it to install several times. Microsoft should remove it as an update day after day until they decide what to do with it.
