    Windows update log problem in 1607


    In Can't install Windows 10 Anniversary update, stuck on build 10240 @dalchina advised...
    ...which is good advice for the OP who was on 12040. However, being curious (and not having needed to look at it before) I thought I'd have a look at mine.

    I'm on Windows 10 Home Build 14393.187. Apparently since the Anniversary Update 1607 the only thing C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log contains is...
    So I followed the instructions and generated a WindowsUpdate.log on my Desktop - all well so far. Opening it revealed 99% of the entries were of the form:
    Apparently, according to the above 'for more information...' link...

    No matter how many times I clear %temp%\windowsupdatelog I never see the Microsoft Internet Symbol Store dialog box and never get a properly decoded update log. Has anyone ever got this to work? If so, what am I doing wrong? I currently don't need to see it to debug problems, but it would be nice to know it's there if I need it.

    PS: I don't have (or want) a Microsoft Account, could that be the issue?

    :)
     

  2. The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID

    Hi,

    Windows Update has just updated 2 days ago, 4 of my PCs to the Anniversary update 1607, and the 4 PC have exactly the same 10016 problem in the event log.

    Thank you,

    Dominique

  3. Every cumulative update fails Windows 10

    Log Name: System

    Source: Microsoft-Windows-WindowsUpdateClient

    Date: 19/01/2017 12:01:13

    Event ID: 20

    Level: Error

    Description:

    Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x80070011: Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3213986).



    0x80070011 ERROR_NOT_SAME_DEVICE The system cannot move the file to a different disk drive.



    It would appear that either at the time of installing Windows 10 or subsequently that a folder / file has been moved to another partition. The problem is how can we determine what is has been moved?



    Please upload a copy of the Windows Update log to your OneDrive and post a link here.

    I think a better subject is needed for this thread because I don't know how many, including myself, will really understand what "W" is for.

    I have exactly the same behavior, and I'm logged in with a Microsoft account, so this is not the issue. I'm wondering if someone with the same build (1607) is able to get any useful message from the so formatted log, since for me it's only a list of "No Format Information found" lines.
