    "A current driver on your PC may be better than the driver we're trying to install. We'll keep trying to install."


    I see this has been an ongoing issue over the last three years. That I'm as the next customer in line for endless hours of "repeated' research.

    Do you plan to resolve this issue?

  2. Windows 10 update error - A current driver on your PC may be better than the driver we're trying to install. We'll keep trying to install.

    Hello, I am currently running build 1709 on a desktop and I am trying to upgrade to 1909 to be able to download the xbox app. However, I have been coming into this error for months.

    A current driver on your PC may be better than the driver we're trying to install. We'll keep trying to install.

    I've ran the troubleshooter and just about every other tip on the internet.

    I did find a list of drivers in the "setupapi.dev" in the windows inf folder, I just don't know how to read it.

    Thanks, Matt

    What do I do about the message "A current driver on your PC may be better than the driver we're trying to install. We'll keep trying to install."

    What do I do about the message "A current driver on your PC may be better than the driver we're trying to install. We'll keep trying to install."

    Why would Microsoft "keep trying to install" an inferior driver? There is no reasonable action on my part suggested. The only option is "retry" and I don't know why why I want to retry doing something that seems silly to do (install an inferior driver over
    the existing "better" driver). It doesn't even tell me what driver is involved so I have NO WAY to deal with this.

    I was NOT trying to install anything. That message just showed up on its own when I looked at update status.

    P.S. I could find NO WAY to contact technical support other than the "virtual agent" who seemed more interested in explaining how to run windows and in telling me how great windows is!

    Windows 10 Update 1903 - A current driver on your PC may be better than the driver we're trying to install. We'll keep trying to install.

    I am trying to update my laptop to Windows 10 1903 but keep seeing the error "A current driver on your PC may be better than the driver we're trying to install. We'll keep trying to install."

    How do I find out which driver is affecting the Windows10 update, so I can uninstall it
