    Windows 10 Fall Creators update issues and problems.


    Hi all,

    I have big problems with the new MS update which prevents me from installing updates or drivers.
    It seems that MS has a mind of its own because whenever i install newer drivers it keeps saying that older drivers are installed in device manager..

    This is what i mean:

    As you can see the driver simply won't update in device manager no matter what i do..
    Same as for Realtek audio drivers, i donloaded the newest from MS update but i can't install it and see; "the best drivers are already installed for your device"

    Is my Windows corrupt or went bad or something or am i overlooking something? I ran sfc /scannow and found nothing, DISM also didn't find anything but repaired the image anyway.

    Plz help me with this as this frustrates me beyond belief..

    Thank you in advanced,

    Hurricane28.

    Hi hurricane28.

    If you ran the exe it likely unpack the drivers on your machine. If you click update, then browse my computer, then let me pick from a list. (You will have to have the right directory / folder picked in the upper portion of the window.)

    Is there a problem with your existing drivers that you are hoping to fix? If not I'm a big believer in "If ain't broke don't fix it." Of course that is me.

    I would let Windows install the drivers it decides. Ensure you have device installation settings as shown below. If you really want a different driver, then download the required installation file from the manufacturer's web site. You can use the method at post 2 to check what has been installed or look at the driver properties in Device Manager.

    Hi, Sorry for late reply but i have been very busy.

    I solved the Audio driver update issue, i changed the name of the folder i unpacked the .cap file to and it worked.

    I have no issues anymore but i would like to have the latest drivers and maybe it fixes things that i had no idea of. I mean, make the experience even better so to speak.

    Thnx for reply tho.

    Why let Windows decide? That's my point, I want to decide not Windows which driver i want to install or not. If there is a new driver for my platform i would like to be able to install it.

    Where did you get device installation settings from? Never seen that before.

    There are various ways - try entering Change Device Installation setting in the Search box.
