    I still can't update from version 20161


    I have been an Insider since the beginning and rarely have any problems.

    Since updating to version 20161 I have had nothing but problems.


    I keep getting messages on the screen telling me that my version of Windows is to expire on 31 July.

    I could not update to version 20170, I cannot update to version 20175.

    I have tried to re-install Windows, both, from an iso file mounted and run from my SSD, it didn't work.

    I have a very recently made bootable USB thumb drive of Windows and have tried a clean install, it didn't work.


    I have read on this forum many helpful hints of how to get Windows working again, from deleting the contents of certain folders in Windows/SoftwareDistribution, to Registry edits, to running certain commands from a Command prompt, none work.


    I have tried so many so-called fixes none of which work for me, I am now stuck on a version of Windows which is about to expire and can't update to a newer version, What am I to do?

    I feel that any more suggestions would also end up as fails, I am now at my wit's end and need some help, please.


    I have a Surface Pro 5 with an i5 processor, 8 Gig of RAM and a 256 Gig SSD, as a pensioner I cannot afford to bin it and buy a new one.


    Is there any chance of someone from Microsoft contacting me to sort this problem out?

    :)

  4. I still can't update from version 20161

    Still not working


    Hi Brink,

    I am a Systems Engineer (entry-Level) and I am having this issue. I have followed all the steps that were listed, even created a new user account. This is for a customer. When I followed the steps, before creating a new user, i kept changing the path to point to the correct place. The second time, and following, I ended up getting the 2 SID's, one with the .bak. Followed the steps to delete the regular one and rename the .bak. restarted and still signs in as a temp profile. So I ended up cfreating a new user and still get the same Temp profile issue. Could you suggest something? Thanks.
