      The Forum tree was a custom add-on that is no longer in use. The Forums can be accessed through the “Forums” button in the gray menubar at the top of the page, though not in as nice a layout/format.

      Looks like the difference is between the April and May updates.

      b) link to “Comment on the AskWoody Lounge” is a deadlink.

      The link does not work at the top of a Lounge Topic (in the Forums) b/c you are already in the Lounge (Forums) and the replies go in the entry box below the Lounge Topic’s post.

      The link does work on a Blog Post (site main pages) because it redirects you to the linked Lounge Topic (in the Forums) where you can comment/reply. You cannot reply directly on a Blog Post.

      There are instructions for controlling Windows Update in Win10 Pro here.
      It includes reasons for the Group Policy settings and GUI settings.
      Also, how to use wushowhide and how to clear the Windows Update queue.

      Updated Build 18912.1001 to Build 18917.1000 yesterday.
      I got the error 0x0000409 on the first attempt – before the initial reboot.
      Clicked the “Retry” button and this time it worked.
      Now sitting on the latest build.

      If you Subscribe to a topic, you will get email notices whenever someone replies to the topic. You can always Unsubscribe b/c the button is a toggle: Subscribe/Unsubscribe.

      I have never used Favorites.

      Some of the comments are here, and here and here and here. If there is a ComputerWorld article linked to these blogposts, be sure you read it.

      Also, if you click on the link for Win10 v1903 at the top of topic, you will see other topics on 1903 listed.

      Note: If the CU had been downloaded, I think it would have been installed. Consider the possibility that the whole CU has not been downloaded (look at the size of the file that you are referring to), but instead a container of metadata about the CU (would be smaller). This could be the “availability” that keeps showing up in the queue after you have hidden the patch.

      What has been downloaded (and not installed) is in the
      C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download folder. Make a copy of the folder in a different location (don’t MOVE it with drag/drop) and delete the contents of the original folder leaving the folder itself. Run the procedure in AKB2000013 again and see what happens.

      If everything works, you can delete the copied folder.

      Out of curiosity I went to Settings\Update & Security\Windows Update and noticed that Windows Update was in the middle of checking for updates of its own initiative. Am I wrong or this should not happen considering I’ve set my connection to metered?

      Windows Update checks for updates automatically about once per day. It does not (supposedly) download over metered connections. But it does recognize the availability of the updates by listing them in the Windows update queue (as you saw when they showed up in the update queue after it checked.)

      If you use whshowhide to then HIDE the updates, they are hidden.
      BUT, the availability is not removed from the update queue. Even though you have hidden them, they will still download if you click “Download” b/c they are still in the queue.

      You have to clear the update queue for the hiding to be effective. You can try the procedure in AKB2000013 to do this. Once the update queue shows only the updates you want (not hidden), and the others are verified hidden, you can undo metered connections long enough to get the updates you want.

      There is a “Win7 beyond End-of-life” Forum.

      Susan Bradley is focused on the business side of patching. Her Master Patch List is accessible through the button in the gray menubar at the top of the page.

      There are many readers here at AskWoody who have no intention of moving off Win7 any time soon. There will be blogposts and topics with some frequency, I’m sure.

      I usually let the Updates download when they come out, run wushowhide and hide the ones (mainly the new monthly CU) I want to wait for the Defcon rating on

      Something isn’t right here. If the updates download, they will install and you will no longer be able to hide them with whshowhide.
      Perhaps the explanation could be clearer?

      but why can’t MS figure out a way to update that prior to the CU? Last month’s CU installed twice as well.

      C’mon! We’re talking about MS here! 🙂 🙂

      Did you follow exactly the instructions in AKB2000013? You not only have to hide the updates, you have to clear rhe Windows Update queue afterward.

      Some of the recent CUs have to go through two install cycles. It may be b/c the Servicing Stack has to be installed first by itself, then the CU. There is a new Servicing Stack for 1809 in June which might explain it.
