    Went to open WhatsApp on my PC and it asked for an update. Went to Microsoft store, but there is no new update. Tried to repair the app, didn't work. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Still the same. Is there a solution?

  2. pc won`t update

    I`ve been trying to solve this problem for 3 months to no avail.

    PLEASE HELP!!!

    EVERY time the computer check new updates, the following message appears:

    We couldn't connect to the update service. We'll try again later, or you can check now. If it still doesn't work, make sure you're connected to the Internet.

    My PC is connected to the internet, so this could not be the problem.

    you`ve only directed me to a window link, which I don`T really understand.

    Could ANYONE PLEASE send me a simple answer how I can solve this problem step by step???????

    Thanks.

  3. Vista x64 won't download updates?

    The last updates on my home desktop are dated 16th June.
    I've powered it on some 3 or 4 times since then, but nothing was downloaded automatically as per settings.

    I tried the manual update from the CP but I get an error code 80070002.

    I did the troubleshooting suggested (i.e. stop the Windows Update service, delete the temporary update files, restart the Windows Update service, and then try to check for Windows updates again) but I still keep getting the same error code, even after rebooting *Confused WhatsApp PC desktop won't open without an update, but there is no new update :confused:

    What gives?

    Whatsapp desktop - making a chat / call with no contacts


    A friend uses Whatsapp from a phone. I'd like to use whatsapp from my desktop or phone to communicate with them.

    I have installed whatsapp on my android phone and have connected the desktop. And am leaving the phone turned on, as directed.

    I refused to permit Whatsapp to read my contacts, etc.. I'm not a big facebook fan and know that they share everything everywhere and sell it everywhere.

    However, I cannot figure a way to make or even receive a call using whatsapp without using my contacts list.
    Is this true or is there something I'm missing. On the desktop app I put in a phone number and it wants to search my contacts, which of course it does not have. After using "Create Group" same thing.

    No way to make a call at all with whatsapp if you don't share your contacts with it?

    if so, Whatsapp is completely broken for me.

    And if so that's fine since I can use Skype or Discord just fine.

    Thanks much,
    wg
