    The last one is finally in. That has to be one of the longest installs I've had to endure where it didn't actually fail - just went round in circles a few times.

    Well the latest went straight in reasonably quick, different Windows update error this time after it finished, but sorted it by stopping the update service and restarting it.

    Newest build is out 18999.1 VB_release.

    Looks like its download the UUPdump version for one PC as the previous version is causing a few update problems, BUT might try the image again first, then upgrade to this one, worth a crack .

    Another one that's sneaked in! It wasn't there first thing this morning.
    It looks like some of my problems installing the previous build on VMWare Workstation might have been to do with the faulty update that messed with it. I fixed it by installing the latest version, but apparently I could have just uninstalled the update.

    Windows Update these days gives you more control over what is happening. When there is a big update, you get a "pending download" status and a "download" button. Is there a way to make the download happen without intervention? I know you can speed up the restart process, but I can't see a way to override this.

    Well tomorrow I'll be putting back two earlier versions, then disabling the updates. This ones a DUD.

    When running windows updates manually two different problems:

    1. Something went wrong try opening Settings later ( no other error message)

    and the other PC

    2. Sits there looking for updates, going nowhere.
