    FCU does not do anything


    After downloading and running Windows10Upgrade9252.exe i get this screen and nothing else:

    Checking Task Manager shows no CPU , no I/O, and no network activity. So I hit Exit. I did get a Windows10Upgrade directory with lots of stuff on my C: drive, but I am reluctant to run any of the EXE modules there without knowing what they might do.

    What should my next step be?

    Edit:

    I found a log file in the WIndows10Upgrade folder. It has a lot of data that is impossible to understand, but there are many lines that look like this one:

    2017-10-18 02:33:20.970, Warning [GetConfigurationByKey] File:utility.cpp, Line:232 failed with error code 0x80070002

    Of course I have no idea what this means or what to do about it.

    I would download the ISO file using the Media Creation Tool, mount it and run setup.exe from that.

    Windows Update Assistant works well, also. First option here:

    Download Windows 10

    Clean and simple UI.

    The problem I encountered resulted from running Windows10Upgrade9252.exe, so I don't think that will help. I do have a R/W DVD that should work for the iso file so I might try that.

    You don't need to burn a DVD from the ISO file. Just mount it and run setup.exe from it.

    That is good news. I assumed I'd need to burn a DVD because of reboots during the update process. Thanks for the tip.

    No, all the files needed are copied from the ISO before the first reboot. After that it boots to your PC to finish the process.

    In fact, if you make a USB instead of an ISO you have to remember to remove it just before the first reboot else it boots from the USB. You don't want to do that, booting from the USB is how you do a clean install

    I had to do a clean install once before. Took me more than a week to get evreything back the way I wanted & had it before. So I'll not be doing one of those again. If the ISO doesn't update I'll just stick with the Windows I have - it works fine for me.
