Windows update fails - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Just had a nasty shock about what Microsoft might be up to.

I was trying the free upgrade from W8.0 to W8.1 until I found out about the 0xC1900101 upgrade bugs - in my case, 0x40019 - and decided to leave it for the time being in the hope they will solve the problem with Update 1.

Then I suddenly get a usage warning from my ISP where I've used up 50% of my monthly allowance in just two days - 3Gb each time it downloads.

Could be interesting to see what kind of deals MS is getting with the ISPs with promises of exaggerated download excersizes it forces users to do.

The EU could get very interested if that was going on.

Hi Pyro_Teknic

I run into this issue quite frequently, (we SO need a service pack 2)

there are around 200 updates from a fresh sp1 install of window 7, and the fix is quite simple but not obvious.

Do not let windows try to install the updates in a shutdown/restart cycle

Run windows update from within windows and let it install them, you will most likely get a failed notice, however it won't roll back all the other updates like it does in the restart cycle.
One thing you will notice when using the update while logged on is a request to agree to terms and conditions, so a hint at the problem there.

then just double check you have all the .net framework updates in place.

Good luck smile.gif
