    KB4023834 failed to install


    My desktop (x-86 based system) just installed Windows Update, but this one is showing as failed. I found a site (Microsoft Update Catalog) and downloaded the update.

    Should I just run it again? I'd appreciate some advice on this as I do not know what to do.

    Sometimes you just need to try again. It just succeeded today on mine.

    Please note too that in the News section here there's a thread per update, so you can compare notes.
    In that thread there are links for manual downloads. Easy if needed.

    There are logs you can inspect if the problem persists. However, past history with Win 10 has shown that just occasionally MS has to replace an update.

    Let us know if you were able to update windows 7 from the Microsoft catalog.
    Whenever there is an update failure, post the KB#, the error code, and the troubleshooting steps performed.

    You say I just need to try again. How do I do that without manual install? I ran the search for updates again and another update came up, but it was not this one.

    I looked in the News section and I didn't find anything on this KB4023834.

    Please update your computer information as it is still displaying windows 7.
    In the left lower corner search type winver
    The pop up will display your current windows version and build.
    Please post this information into the thread.
    When you performed a manual installation from the catalog was there an error code or did it update successfully?

    Sorry. I updated the info for my laptop, but the computer I am having trouble with is my Dell desktop, which also runs Windows 10/Build 1607.

    I did not install that manual update yet because I didn't know if I should. I guess I will try it.

    P.S. I'm not having much luck here. I clicked on that update I downloaded to install it and I get a pop up that this update is already on my computer. Yes, it's on my computer as "failed."

    For windows updates view the options to uninstall updates.
    Enter KB4023834 into the search and see if it can be uninstalled.
    If it can be uninstalled that will confirm that it is installed.

    Mine has done that on a few occasions. I just ask it to try again and all works out fine.
