    Feature update to Windows 10, version 1903 - Error 0xc1900223

    Hi all,
    can anyone help w/ this error please? Seems to download ok, prepares to install, gets to 88%, then fails. i've tried a couple things from https://zillowtech.com/windows-10-fa...o-install.html
    but they didn't work.
    Currently on build 1803. C drive has about 70gig free.

    cheers in advance...

    SetupDiag is a free diagnostic tool by Microsoft that is designed to find and parse Windows 10 setup log files to determine why an upgrade or update failed to install on a computer system.

    SetupDiag works only on devices running Windows 10. The second requirement is that it depends on the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6 which needs to be installed on the device it is run on.

    If you run SetupDiag without parameters, it attempts to locate log files that Windows 10 creates during the upgrade process in the default folders on the device.

    The program creates a results.log file in its directory when it completes the scan which includes upgrade issues that it detected in the log files during parsing.

    SetupDiag creates a zip archive of all log files that it processed on top of that which it saves as Logs.zip in the same directory as well.

    SetupDiag does is parse the following directories for log files:

    • \$Windows.~bt\sources\panther
    • \$Windows.~bt\Sources\Rollback
    • \Windows\Panther
    • \Windows\Panther\NewOS

    SetupDiag can also be used to debug minidump files that Windows 10 may create during the upgrade process. Windows 10 creates the file setupmem.dmp either in %SystemDrive%$Windows.~bt\Sources\Rollback or in %WinDir%\Panther\NewOS\Rollback depending on when the upgrade process is stopped.

    Here are some examples:

    • SetupDiag.exe -- the core command. It will run in online mode which means that it tries to find upgrade logs on the target machine in the directories mentioned above.
    • SetupDiag.exe /Output:C:\SetupDiag\Results.log /Mode:Offline /LogsPath:\Temp\Logs\LogSet1 - the command runs SetupDiag in offline mode. It will scan the directory LogSet1 for matching log files and issues.
    • SetupDiag.exe /Output:C:\SetupDiag\Dumpdebug.log /Mode:Offline /LogsPath:\Dump -- the command analyzes the setupmem.dmp file found in d:\dump.

    SetupDiag uses a set of rules files to find matches in upgrade logs. Rules have a name and associated unique identifier.

    The reliance on rules means that SetupDiag can only identify issues that are defined in its set of rules. Microsoft lists a total of 26 unique identifiers on the Microsoft Docs website which SetupDiag identifies in its current version.

    SetupDiag may speed up the diagnosing of upgrade related issues on Windows 10 machines significantly. It reduces the time it takes to parse the log files but may still require additional research to repair the detected issue.

    I had the same problem and it ended up being my security software that was interfering with the installation process.

    I disabled Comodo Firewall (and all of its related services like HIPS, Virus Scope, Firewall, Website Filtering etc.). And also disabled ESET NOD32 Antivirus. After that the installation process completed without any further issues.

    I used the Media Creation Tool from this link to install the 1903 update.

    Thanks for the info johnlikeybob, I have NOD32 too so that looks it might be the culprit. I take it you were referring to the "update now" link and not the actual tool link, which seems to be for an initial install tool rather than an upgrader.

    The media creation tool
    Create Windows 10 installation media

    can be used to
    - create a bootable disk
    - download an iso

    Using either of those you can initiate an upgrade, by
    a. logging in
    b. Mounting the iso and opening the new drive letter created
    c. Connecting the bootable disk

    d. Navigate to setup.exe as provided by b or c
    e. Double click setup.exe

    Or that link also offers the update assistant of course.

    The 0xc1900223 refers to a memory issue!How much memory do you have on your computer?We can get more insights if you post the logs under the “C:\$WINDOWS.~BT\Sources\Panther\” path.

    well, i tried the link, it downloaded, got to the blue installing screen, got to about 57% and failed w/ a "something went wrong, fault code 0xc0000005

    the update troubleshooter just said i had pending installs,

    is it worth trying the fix @Ztruker mentions here?
    Version 1803 fails to install with error code 0xc0000005

    edit, just run sfc/scannow, said it found corrupt files but wasn't able to repair them all, can i paste the log here?

    Execute following commands one at a time to repair corrupted system files:

    Dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    Sfc  /scannow

    Are you getting blue screen of death error?

    Execute SetupDiag tool and let us have the zip arhive created by SetupDiag which it saves as Logs.zip in the same directory as well.
