Microsoft has issued a fix for Windows 10 Anniversary Update install FAIL glitch


#Microsoft #Windows10Microsoft has issued a fix for Windows 10 Anniversary Update install FAIL glitch : Microsoft has rolled-out a clean-up script to help machines affected by an incredibly frustrating Windows 10 Anniversary Update glitch that rolled out earlier this month.

The latest update to Windows 10 Anniversary Update, dubbed Build 14393.222, has caused a number of installation issues amongst Windows Insiders. Enraged reports have flooded Twitter and Microsoft Support forums from users who have been left unable to install the latest update, resulting in an endless loop of repeated attempts.

“This update fails during install for me and pops an 0x800736cc error,” one user commented. Another added: “I haven’t seen any error codes It has just not been able to complete.”

Microsoft is aware of the problem, and rushing out a fix for the glitch. The Redmond technology firm posted in the now 30-page Support forum thread about the endless failed installation loop bug.

“We’ve been working diligently on this issue and are finalising a clean-up script that will fix the underlying issue preventing the install of KB3194496 (Cumulative Update 14393.222) for affected users,” the US firm wrote. “Your patience during our research and subsequent work is greatly appreciated.”

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Microsoft told “We became aware of an issue with the recent Windows 10 cumulative update that impacted a small number of customers in the Windows Insider Program that were running a previous build of the OS.

“We have created a solution to resolve this issue, which is now live”. Affected users can download the patch for the Windows 10 Anniversary Update bug at this address.

When the latest Windows 10 Anniversary Update software patch fails, it will attempt to revert any changes it has made so far during the installation. Some Windows 10 users have reported that attempting the update several times – anecdotally, more than 10 times appears to the magic number – the update will finally succeed and will install as expected.
