Microsoft Says Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB3194496 Fix Is Almost Ready


#Microsoft #Windows10Microsoft Says Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB3194496 Fix Is Almost Ready : Microsoft has already confirmed that it’s working on a patch that would correct Windows 10 cumulative update KB3194496 installation issues, and now the company claims that it’s very close to releasing it to users.

Details aren’t yet available, but given that the firm says development is close to the final stages, the release could take place as soon as this week, most likely in the coming days.

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

What’s important to know, however, is that this fix might first be released to insiders, as they were also experiencing problems with the cumulative update, so retail users might have to wait a little bit longer until they receive the same patch.

“Try this fix”

Just like it happened with many other cumulative updates, KB3194496 fails to install on a number of systems with the same “undoing changes” error message that doesn’t tell too much. We’ve already found a fix for KB3194496 issues, and the chances are that the patch that Microsoft is working on does the same thing as this workaround, but performs all steps automatically.

In the meantime, if this manual fix doesn’t make any difference for you, it’s better not to try to install the cumulative update anymore, as Microsoft itself explains that there is no point in struggling to get it work because it’ll fail every time anyway. So for the moment, it’s better to wait for the official fix because it seems like its release is just around the corner.

A new cumulative update is expected to land next week on Tuesday, and with a little luck, everything would work correctly, and the patch installs fine on all PCs. Source: softpedia
