Windows 10: Windows Update error 0x800705b4

    Windows Update error 0x800705b4


    Yep, it's me again. I'm having more trouble with my new Windows 10 PC. Since it's brand new, it has about a year's worth of updating to do, but there's a problem. When I try to download the updates, I get the error "The operating system is not presently configured to run this application.", which the internet tells me, is coming from the preloaded Office 2016 trial. After about 15-20 minutes of searching for updates, I get the 0x800705b4 error. I run the troubleshooter from Microsoft and it finishes successfully, but I then get the Office error again, followed by the update error.

    Has anyone else had this problem? How do I fix it?

    Thanks
    Matt

    If you do not plan on using it, you can uninstall it. Maybe the trial has already expired and it is causing the problem.
    To stop nagging go to Windows Update - Advanced Options - uncheck - Give me updates for other Microsoft products.
