    Can't upgrade to latest build - error: 0x80070050


    I just installed the Windows 10 TP and wanted to upgrade to the latest build to get all of the new features, but whenever I try to upgrade this error is thrown at me, and I can't find anything about it online.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    I have no idea, I just clicked search for build, downloaded it and i'm trying to install it. There is no information on what build number it actually is.

    The build number you're using is on the water mark on the desktop image on your pc.

    My computer just restarted and I believe it's installing the update now. I'm at the "setting up" screen currently and hopefully everything turns out okay
    I'll let you know of the results.
