  1. Windows can't check for updates, says can't connect to update service, Microsoft store...


    Windows attempted to check for updates last week, found some, but in the process of installing something went wrong, i don't know what. Since then it's been from one issue to the other. I currently have the latest version of windows 10 installed via Windows 10 update assistant, but the update only fixed few issues. These haven't been fixed;Windows can't connect to update serviceMicrosoft store can't download apps, says stating download then error after few seconds.Mail and Calendar won't add google account.Apps like Slack or postman won't install, something about SquirrelSetup.

    Windows updates won't install!

    I had the same problem when i repaired my O/S, i forgot the steps on how to fixed it, but it is in the microsoft support forum.

    You have to reinstall the windows updater, then restart the updating service.

    edit: Found it...http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144
     
  3. When will AT&T deliver the updates?

    Here it is late August and STILL no update. This will be my LAST AT&T phone and if Microsoft does not push AT&T to step up and let updates though to the customer then it will also be my LAST Windows Phone.



    Where is the customer service?

    Windows Updates failed to instal

    I'm not sure how differant XP media center Edition is but you could clear the history \ cache if these folders are there.

    Step 1 Register DLL files.

    =================

    By trying this step, we can check if the update engines are working properly.



    1. Close all instances of Internet Explorer.

    2. Click Start and Run, type "Regsvr32 atl.dll" (without quotes) in the Open box and click OK.



    Note: There is a space between regsvr32 and atl.dll



    3. Similarly, one by one, register the files listed below:



    Regsvr32 msxml3.dll

    Regsvr32 wuapi.dll

    Regsvr32 wuaueng.dll

    Regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll

    Regsvr32 wups2.dll

    Regsvr32 wucltui.dll

    Regsvr32 wups.dll

    Regsvr32 wuweb.dll

    Regsvr32 qmgr.dll

    Regsvr32 qmgrprxy.dll

    Regsvr32 jscript.dll



    Note: If you encounter errors while registering any of these files then skip that file and continue with the next one.



    If the issue persists, let's move on to the steps below to verify Windows Update services and temporary folders.



    Step 2 Verify the relevant Windows Update services.

    =========================================

    1. Click Start->Run, type "services.msc" (without quotation marks) in the open box and click OK.

    2. Double click the service "Automatic Updates".

    3. Click on the Log On tab, please ensure the option "Local System account" is selected and the option "Allow service to interact with desktop" is unchecked.

    4. Check if this service has been enabled on the listed Hardware Profile. If not, please click the Enable button to enable it.

    5. Click on the tab "General "; make sure the "Startup Type" is "Automatic" or "Manual". Then please click the button "Stop" under "Service Status" to stop the service.

    6. Then please click the button "Start" under "Service Status" to start the service.

    7. Please repeat the above steps with the other services:



    Background Intelligent Transfer Service

    Event Log

    Remote Procedure Call (RPC)



    Note: Event log service is enabled on all of the hardware profiles; this service does not have an option to enable or disable on certain hardware profile.



    If it still does not help, let's proceed to step 3.



    Step 3 Reload the Update temporary folders.

    ===================================

    One possible cause is that the temporary folder for Windows Update is containing corrupted files. Let's erase all the files there to get the system clean.



    1. Click Start, Run, type: cmd and press Enter. Please run the following command in the opened window.



    Net stop WuAuServ



    2. Click Start, Run, type: %windir% and press Enter.

    3. In the opened folder, rename the folder SoftwareDistribution to Sdold.

    4. Click Start, Run, type: cmd and press Enter. Please run the following command in the opened window.



    Net start WuAuServ



    Please test the Windows Update website and let me know the result. If the issue persists, to clarify the issue and provide more accurate troubleshooting steps, please assist me in collecting the following information.
