How to Fix Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB3194798 Installation Issues


#Windows10 #Microsoft – How to Fix Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB3194798 Installation Issues : Microsoft rolled out Windows 10 cumulative update KB3194798 a couple of days ago for systems running the Anniversary Update, but just like many other similar updates released in the past, it is now experiencing installation issues on a number of computers.

Microsoft hasn’t yet acknowledged installation issues, but judging from the number of complaints that can be found online, KB3194798 problems are at least as widespread as they were in the case of other cumulative updates.

Without Microsoft publicly confirming the bugs, it’s hard to know exactly how to address them, but here are two workarounds that appear to have fixed KB3194798 in the case of several users.

Method #1 – Manually downloading KB3194798

In some of the cases, it seems that the installation issues experienced with KB3194798 are caused by the operating system failing to download and decompress the update, so manually downloading the patch could help address the bugs.

For the moment, however, there’s still no confirmation that this works for everybody, but we’ve received messages from users saying that manually downloading the cumulative updated did the job not only in this case but also with other botched patches released in the past.

So if you want to give this method a try, here are the download links for KB3194798 x86 and KB3194798 x64 – make sure you download the version that’s appropriate for your computer.

Method #2 – Windows 10 1607 Script

We need to mention this from the very beginning: this is an odd solution, but once again, it appears to fix the KB3194798 installation problems as well.

According to some users, running this script gets the new cumulative update to install successfully, even though it was originally released by Microsoft to fix the installation of KB3194496 (Cumulative Update 14393.222) only for users in the Windows Insider program.

And yet, if the cause of the problems is the same for both updates, it makes sense for the script to work, so maybe it’s worth a try.
