Stop old insider update 20161 and install the latest 20170 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I need some help please.

    I installed build 20161 but it screwed my screen so I backed it out. 

    Now I would like to install 20170 and hope that is better but every time I try it still downloads 20161

    I have tried stopping this by various ideas on the net but nothing works.

    All ideas gratefully recieved

  • Hello,

    Refer these suggestions and see if they helps:

    Run Windows Update troubleshooter from Settings app > Update & security > Troubleshoot. See if that helps.

    If that doesn't work, try this:

    Open administrative Command Prompt and type following commands one-by-one followed by Enter key.

    net stop wuauserv

    net stop cryptSvc

    net stop bits

    net stop msiserver

    Ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old

    Ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 Catroot2.old

    net start wuauserv

    net start cryptSvc

    net start bits

    net start msiserver

    Close Command Prompt and see if you can download build 20170 then.

    Let us know if this helps!
