Cannot View WindowsUpdate Log as its Too Much Effort for Billion Dollar Microsoft to Provide Offline Symbol Packages for Windows RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are completely unable to view Windows Update logs on Windows 10 devices because of Microsoft's decision to no longer provide offline symbol packages for Windows.

    The WindowsUpdate log after being generated via the PowerShell command shows the following:

    So the symbols are missing.

    Microsoft's advice/guidance on the following URL is scant at best, and totally unsuited for the above issue because the symbols are required by a PowerShell command, not a single program. The web page gives no guidance for how to generate the manifest in this case and the only offering is use the switch “/ie YourApp.exe”.

    Can anyone please advise how we can create a manifest for this urgent issue?
