    Hello, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    You could try doing a repair install of Windows 10 to fix it without losing anything.

    Download is blocked by Microsoft because it is not on their list of approved downloads.
    Is there any way round this ?

    Hello,

    You should be able to select to download it anyway.

    Which browser are you downloading from?

    Google Chrome

    - - - Updated - - -

    How do I run the file I have saved to the desktop ?
    I worked that out. - eventually. So easy everyone assumes you know how to it.
    Right click Start, choose Run, choose browse and find the folder/file saved to desktop.

    Joy shortlived. Final message was

    Access denied - C:\WINDOWS\winsxs\pending.xml
    Access denied.

    I am trying Repair install. It failed to install Windows 10 the first time partly I think because of Updates missing. or corrupted. I thought it a good idea to run this program before I tried again.

    I agreed to xml files because Microsoft was swamping me with adverts of Microsoft Edge
    almost every time I did anything for a while and I clicked on anything that would get me through the barrage. Very short sighted I know. The first go at Repair install seems to have got rid of them at least.

    My Windows 10 Update issue is that it says it failed and that it couldn't connect to the update service, even though I have internet for everything else. I have version 21H1 from an iso manual update/upgrade. But the problem is still there.

    Hello,

    Yes, it should still work in Windows 11.

    Hi! I have a ACER laptop W10 that never had any issues with WU but now I am stuck on KB5008212 and have done every possible fix and tried every solution I've found online, but so far I still get error 0x80070005. Also 0x800f0984 (PSFX_E_MATCHING_BINARY_MISSING).
    I've followed all the recommendations and test to reset and clear in cmd, restore health, etc. etc. etc.
    There's nothing wrong in the regstry and there's no issues with it other than windows update!
    I have full administration (checked that also) and only one account.
    However, when running the code in this thread (windows 10) I get questions in the cmd asking to reply yes or no to. It doesn't say anything about this in the descriptions so should I reply yes or no? In the registry it sais I have done a Inplace upgrade (1) but then what, nothing more happens.
    I'd be very very very glad for some guidance and help with this. Thank you!

    If you are attempting to do an In-Place Upgrade...






    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade



    Here is the short version of the In-place upgrade tutorial...

    DISABLE non-Microsoft:
    a) antivirus software
    b) firewall software
    c) drive encryption software

    Make a full OS backup with a program like Macrium Reflect (free)
    Macrium Software | Macrium Reflect Free

    Go here and get the Media Creation Tool and save it to your desktop.
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10

    RUN the Media Creation Tool and use it to: Create an ISO image... save IT to your desktop.
    This will be the latest version of the ISO image.




    Right click the ISO image and choose: MOUNT
    Open File Explorer and you will see a new drive letter. It will look like a DVD optical drive.
    Double click the new drive letter to open it.
    Find setup.exe and double click it to start the in-place upgrade.

    Choose the Keep personal files and apps option.

    After it's all done... to UNmount the ISO image, right click the new drive letter and choose: EJECT.


    The ONLY thing you will lose is some of your personalizations. Your programs and data will be intact.







    Note:

    I would remove the registry entry that the Anoop article suggested you place in the registry.
    I've done 3-4 In-Place upgrades, and I don't have that entry in my registry.
