Microsoft has released several Windows Update Builds in the past couple of months and more or less users have faced issues while installing the new update. If you also have encountered or stuck into problems while updating our Windows PC, you must have felt the pain. Microsoft provides support documentation for curbing such menace, but most of the times, the support documentation is fruitless. The information shared by the user community on its support forums, however, can be useful, but since many users express their opinion, the correct resolution is lost amid chaos. So, basically, potential resolution is not widely available.
Hence, Microsoft has finally stepped in the field and offered troubleshooting tools that can aid to fix issues with Windows Updates.
Microsoft explained the following:
This guided walk-through provides steps to fix problems when installing updates. Here are some commonly seen error codes: 0x80073712, 0x800705B4, 0x80004005, 0x8024402F, 0x80070002, 0x80070643, 0x80070003, 0x8024200B, 0x80070422, 0x80070020. These steps should help with all errors and not just the ones listed.
How does it work?
We’ll walk you through a series of troubleshooting steps to get your Windows up to date. Be sure to follow the steps in order.
The troubleshooting tool supports Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Microsoft will alert users “if you are using Windows 8, you need to upgrade to Windows 8.1 because Windows 8 is no longer supported.” The tool involves various steps such as downloading and running the Windows Update Troubleshooter, installing the latest update manually etc. The solution may also prompt you to “reset or reinstall” Windows if none of its other recommendations are successful.
