    KB3193494 meant to replace KB3189866 FAILS too!


    A few days ago I posted a thread telling the problems I was having trying to install the Cumulative Win 10, Version 1607 Update (KB3189866) both through the Windows Update program and manually from the Windows Catalog Center Can't install KB318966 (Cumulative Update, Win 10, Version 1607)

    Today I noticed that Windows Update attempted twice to update another Cumulative Update (KB3193494) meant to replace KB3189866. These attempts failed so I went to the Windows Catalog and tried installing it manually but that failed too.

    Just curious if anyone else is experiencing the same problem again?

    Thanks and regards,

    On your other thread I said:

    Well, now they have said something (a first?)
    We encountered a network transmission issue that affected update 3189866, published on September 13, 2016. The quickest way to address this issue was to reissue the update to all Content Delivery Networks. This new update package, KB3193494, includes the same set of fixes as KB3189866. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

    The two CUs are identical as far as fixes go. I (eventually) got KB3189866 installed and it looks like Windows Update is intelligent enough not to offer me KB3193494 when I check for updates. So no - I'm experiencing no problems at all.

    @Brink has a 'News' thread for KB3193494, that's the one to watch for problem reports (the old thread for
    KB3189866 has 28 pages of them!).

    Hi Bree,

    I just saw your response so I did go to Brink's post and put a response on it.

    Thanks and regards,

    I'm of the opinion to file an injunction in federal court. Microsoft's claim to fame was making all hardware (that they certify) compatible under one operating system. Now they have failed. The injunction should bar them from releasing an update until it has been tested on all the machines that they certify. For instance, HP has every model they have ever made. For those models that passed, the upgrade should be tested by the manufacturer, then report back to Microsoft whether it succeeded or not.
