    Ok, I left out a step: the DISM command requires that a source for Windows 10 be available to make repairs. I forgot that I made these changes before I ran the initial set of instructions.
    Try this first, then run the other steps:

    press WindowsKey+R, type gpedit.msc and press Enter.
    Click "Computer Configuration", click "Administrative Templates", click "System", and then double-click the "Specify settings for optional component installation and component repair" setting.
    Select "Enabled", click check box for "Contact Windows Update directly...." - apply and OK

    Thanks for getting back to me, I have done the gpedit thing and then re-done the cmd stuff but still no joy.
    Update not installed and same error code....

    Did you download the off-line update or did you let the auto-update do it's thing?

    I cannot find KB2538243 offline for Windows 10 - you sure it's a windows 10 patch?

    HA! Found it! Download Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package MFC Security Update from Official Microsoft Download Center

    Don't worry, it says that it only supports Windows 7 or lower, but Windows 10 should work.
