  • Sadly, it refuses to install on my laptop, It gets to around 96% and then rolls back.

    I've tried the usual tricks which have solved this kind of problem in the past; namely turning off Wi-Fi, using an Ethernet cable and disabling my antivirus/security software. No joy this time.

    I am stuck :-(

    Here's what worked for me on 2 Win10 units that were stuck in the 'endless loop' update. Many others have reported this successfully corrects the problem:

    (from an earlier post)

    Thanks all. FINALLY got it to work for me following the footsteps of others who have gone down this path:

    • delete folder C:\Windows\System32\Tasks\Microsoft\XblGameSave
    • delete registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tree\Microsoft\XblGameSave
    • Re-run the update

    Tried all the other methods that were suggested by others and they did not work for me. This was some fun figuring this all out. NOT!!!

    Many thanks to the community!

  • I apologize.

    My initial post was misleading.

    The cumulative update is meant for Insider Preview build for PC and Mobile on Release Preview Ring .

    I edited the original post.

    Thank you.

  • Failed install for me too:

    Download seem stuck for quite a while at 95% first time, second time at 100%. Waiting it will eventually install and request reboot.

    After reboot, it installs up to 99% after which it fails and rolls-back (after reboot)

    Event log only states it failed to set the update installed bit.

  • Have 2 almost identical Windows 10 installations, one as Pro, the other as Home.

    Both are running under VMware Workstation 12.1.1.

    The Pro edition installed the Update to v 14393.222 without any problems.

    The Home edition could not install the update. It rolls back after reboot.

  • The automatic install completed except my PC hung on reboot.  After I power cycled my PC, it booted normally.  The Windows version now shows to be 14393.222.  I will let you know if I notice any problems.

    Have you post your problem to Feedback Hub ?

    You should, if you have not yet done so.

    Thursday, September 29, 2016 2:22 AM
  • I have loaded 14393 on a laptop and PC.  No issues with the download or the install here.  It took the usual amount of time.

    I did however run into a ridiculously odd problem on the laptop.  KeyLemon, the facial recognition software can not communicate with the laptop's camera.  I started another thread on this issue.  KeyLemon uses ffmpeg.exe.  I suspect that's the root of the problem.

    Can anyone else find a camera problem with this release?

  • Hi David,

    Let's wait to see if there is standalone package for downloading later. So far, there is official source for download or any article to describe this KB.

    Hmm I wonder if it is worth my removing my camera and then trying again.

    Thursday, September 29, 2016 10:34 AM
  • Probably not. The camera problem only crops up when the program executes. However, one old trick not related to this problem specifically is unplugging any nonessential devices when things go wrong. Maybe it would be worth trying again with all USB devices disconnected. I would also remove secondary video cards and sound devices. This approach is just my first order of business when something won't load or a machine will not boot. Also, once I got a reluctant machine to boot by switching from the UEFI BIOS to the legacy BIOS.

  • This update is failing for many, many people on PC.  14393.222 has gone through download, installation, completion to 100%, and then "We couldn't complete the updates"  "Undoing changes".  This has happened on all 12 of my test machines...  I have gone through the process of installing the update at least 10 times on each machine and it fails every time.

    Why is there no telemetry being logged and evaluated and a fix pushed out?  Come on Microsoft Updates can't fail, or cause more problems than they resolve.

    Quite honestly the Insider Program has suffered without Gabe Aul, and Windows 10 updates must get much better.

  • Also tried multiple times. The first time, though, the computer went into a boot loop, rebooting over and over again for hours.  I finally went to bed and woke up the next morning finding that the update had been rolled back.  Same behavior as above since.

  • Why is this update getting pushed to computers not enrolled into Insider Preview program? And no single pointer to KB article itself, error details or troubleshooting steps from Microsoft!

    Thursday, September 29, 2016 7:44 PM

  • Another cannot install issue here - updates almost complete then "We Couldn't Complete the Updates - Undoing Changes".  I've tried all the steps below but no luck after 6 failed update efforts. 

    Event log reports: "Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x800F0922: Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3194496)."

    I ran both the local Troubleshooter and this Windows 10 Updates troubleshooter: http://aka.ms/diag_wu  
    Both report:  "Potential Windows Update Database Error Detected - Not Fixed".

    I also tried the manual steps here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/971058 (Sigh... been using this Since Windows XP)

    And the DISM tool: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/947821
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth   (completed successfully - had no affect).

  • Guys,

    I read it in Microsoft Community forums that MS Teams are aware of your problem and are working for a fix.

    So, stop trying. Let MS figure out the solution.

    Adding : My Win 10 Home version 1607 received KB3194496 and it was installed without a glitch.
    Maybe MS has figured out the problem, otherwise I would not have received the update.

    See my other thread.........

  • I just tried installing for first time, it was ready to install when I opened Windows Update, i watched and seemed like it was going to work, then at last minute it said reverting changes, update couldn't install, few min passed, saw flash of Windows, then the screen came back reverting changes, few more min and i was at login, I opened event log, saw the windows update error, popped into my old friend, my pain, my love Google and it took me to you guys.

    Sigh

    Went to Windows update and it was downloading again, the failed update, now it wants to install.

    What do y'all think, am i feeling lucky or will i be saddled with disappointment (and another 15 min wasted from my life while i stare, lifelessly at the screen)

    It's not an anti-virus thing, i don't have any running, just smartscreen turned on, i don't have a crapped up computer either, it may just be a bum update, and why us preview lovers feel the pain first.

    Friday, September 30, 2016 3:25 AM
  • Something has got to be wrong with this update. I have now 10 Failed to installs on my laptop. Gets to 99% and rolled back every time no matter what tricks I tried,
    Friday, September 30, 2016 3:48 AM
  • I would say it's time to stick a fork in it until Microsoft fixes this cycle sucking void they call an update.  You have convinced me to hold off, going to disable windows updates until i hear from our Redmond Friends.

  • Hello there! I didn’t have any problems with my new Cumulative Update KB3194496. It took really long time to download and install though.
    I guess, you just need to wait until it finishes itself. Be patient!
    Now i have 14393.222.
    I did install on my desktop pc and laptop, both went well.
    Good luck guys!

No issues so far Go to Setting -> Windows update select update history Note the last cumulative update for window 10 KB number (mine was KB3193494) Select uninstall updates and remove your last cumulative update. You need to restart once removed. Go back into Windows update and select the check for updates button. It took 2hrs to download at 1.3 Mbps

  • Tried the above suggestion of removing the previous cumulative update and retrying to install the new one--and it was an epic fail. I removed the previous cumulative update, rebooted, and tried to reinstall the newer one, and now the new one STILL won't install, leaving my system in a more insecure state than it was before.

    So, now, thanks to this issue and a suggestion that made things worse on my computer, my system has even more vulnerabilities, and so will anyone else who tries the above suggested workaround and it fails.  That should make the cracking hackers happy!

    UPDATE:

    Oh, and it gets worse.  Tried to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter and it gives the following error:

    "Service registration is missing or corrupt.  Not fixed."

    Nice!  Thanks!!!

    You can download the previous CU from the Microsoft Update Catalog using the URL below.  The link is for the KB3193494 CU released on 9/20 which is just a repackage of the KB3189866 CU originally released on 9/13 (Patch Tuesday).

    You'll need to paste the following link into Internet Explorer since the Update Catalog doesn't work with Edge.

    I don't know if this will make any difference regarding the failure of installing KB3194496.

    Here are the direct download links for 32-bit and 64-bit

    64 bit KB3194496 download: http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/...2665aad56e.cab

    32 bit KB3194496 download: http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/...a95cfd78e6.cab

    Maybe, just maybe, direct download link works better than via Windows Update.

  • Use Media Creation Tool. It installs Windows 10 iso including latest updates. It takes longer but at the end everything is fine with 14393.222 installed and working. Then there are other updates requested including (it is weird) kb3194496 but no restart is requested.

    Sunday, October 02, 2016 2:53 PM
  • I had the same problem as being reported for the last 3 days.

    1a. What I did to fix the problem was to download the Windows 10 version 1607 ISO file from https://mdsn.microsoft.com.

    1b. If you don't have a subscription, you can also use the Media Creation Tool that can be found here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/software-download/windows10.

    Click on the Download tool now button and an create ISO image.

    NOTE: This tool cannot be used if you are using Windows 10 Enterprise edition, as it is intended to be used for Windows 10 Pro or Home edition.

    2. Double click on the ISO file and then from File Explorer, double click the setup.exe file.

    3. Go through in the upgrade process, but make sure that you select Download and install updates.

    NOTE: This upgrade process will take some time to complete.

    4. Once the upgrade complete, login and click the Cortana button and type WINVER and press Enter.

    5. You should see the following window:

    GOOD LUCK

    NOTE: As of October 2, 2016, build 14393.222 is the most current build.

    The install from ISO will download the latest Cumulative Update (CU) prior to updating the OS so evidently that route doesn't have the same download/install issue as just doing the CU.  Let's hope MSFT doesn't start suggesting this method as some standard workaround for ongoing CU issues.  It certainly wouldn't be an acceptable answer to the problem.

    Were you connected to the Internet and allowed updates during the install?

    There were reports of successful installation by simply selecting the "Update now" button.

    • delete registry key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tree\Microsoft\XblGameSave
    • Re-run the update

    Just wow! Worked like a charm. How on earth did you solve this?! Much kudos to you

  • Will test this now.

    Question is, what does this break?

    Scheduling syncing of save games or something?

  • This worked for my Windows 10 Pro machine when the update would not install:

    Delete the folder
     C:\Windows\System32\Tasks\Microsoft\XblGameSave on the system. (Please note that you can only do so with elevated privileges.)

    Delete the Registry key
     HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tree\Microsoft\XblGameSave

  • Removing the XblGameSave folder and registry key also worked for one of my x64 machines.

    Thanks!

    ...and back.

    Deleting the folder and key, did not work for me.

    System back to .187.

  • Here is a simple workaround how to install KB3194496 properly.

    Simply using a Windows 10-DVD/memory stick to refresh the system. KB3194496 will be installed without any problems and the system will run version 14393,222. All prior programs and settings will be taken on.

    That's just all.

    This also worked for me.  How did you come up with or find this fix??

  • Yes.  This worked for me as well.  Delete both the XblGameSave folder and registry key.  Found it online.  Here's the link:

  • Sadly, it refuses to install on my laptop, It gets to around 96% and then rolls back.

    I've tried the usual tricks which have solved this kind of problem in the past; namely turning off Wi-Fi, using an Ethernet cable and disabling my antivirus/security software. No joy this time.

    I am stuck :-(

    Here's what worked for me on 2 Win10 units that were stuck in the 'endless loop' update. Many others have reported this successfully corrects the problem:

    (from an earlier post)

    Thanks all. FINALLY got it to work for me following the footsteps of others who have gone down this path:

    • delete folder C:\Windows\System32\Tasks\Microsoft\XblGameSave
    • delete registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tree\Microsoft\XblGameSave
    • Re-run the update

    Tried all the other methods that were suggested by others and they did not work for me. This was some fun figuring this all out. NOT!!!

    Many thanks to the community!

  • Looks like this updated busted my VPN.

    Just using 'Incoming Connections' in Network

    Worked fine for a couple of months since Win 10 upgrade (from Win 7), but mysteriously busted now.

    Anyone else?

  • This also worked for me.  The update now says it successfully installed.

  • Waiting has nothing to do with it _CzEcHeR_.  You can wait till hell freezes over, and it still don't install.  I've had over 13 failed install attempts, and the great magic cure also didn't work, but I made a restore point, so I'll just restore, stop the cycle until a MS cure is posted, or a rock from space falls on my computer.

    Magic Cure = 

    • delete folder C:\Windows\System32\Tasks\Microsoft\XblGameSave
    • delete registry key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tree\Microsoft\XblGameSave
    • Re-run the update

    P.S. no need to reply to this, I also did everything else that is normal on one of these failed updates, including downloading it, and trying a manual install, DISM, scannow, etc......

  • anyone that is still having  (KB3194496) issues.

    Well I found a fix, and it does not require hacking your Registry.  after several failed attempts at resolving this issue. This morning I was on the ##windows chat line, and someone was explaining how to update their computer without resetting it and losing everthing.  I've used the Media Creation Tool many times, but only for downloading the ISO, and doing a re-install, i've never used the update feature on it.  Well I downloaded the latest version and ran the update feature and (boy it took almost 13 hours), when it was completed it had fixed the KB3194496 issue, and all was uptodate.

    For anyone where the the magic cure didn't work, maybe this will.

    Later,

    Slow Joe


    P.S. I did have to leave during this process so the 13 hours might have been less had I been here to interact with procedure.

  • "Works" is a relative term. How about a series of updates over the last few weeks that disable NAS? This is one of them. And even after rolling it back, the problem persists. Third update that has done this, and this is the worst.
