Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB 2016: Installing Windows Updates ...

Q: Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB 2016: Installing Windows Updates ...

Just downloaded the newest HP Image containing Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB 2016 for our HP t630 Thin Clients and tried to install the cumulative Windows Update April 2017 KB4015217: 1. Disabled write filter2. Set windows update service to manual startup3. Run installer for KB4015217 with success4. Rebooted Thin Client to complete update installation. When booting up, Windows Update installation screen runs successfull up to 99%, then displays: we couldn't complete the updates, undoing changes. Eventlog shows error code 0x800F0922 Tried installing previous cumulative update KB4016635 with the same results. Never had this problem with Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB 2015. Anyone out there with the same problems or any ideas fixing this error?

Preferred Solution: Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB 2016: Installing Windows Updates ...

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB 2016: Installing Windows Updates ...

It might be too big while unpacking in the temporary folders in the Ramdrive.Try to change the size of the HP RamDisk under the Control Panel (or if not enough to change the TEMP Paths).After the successful installation it is recommended to change the RamDisk back to it's default value.

And now I have a watermark on the most right bottom side of the screen that says: "Windows License valid for 90 days".
What that means? Why did I get this watermark? Will Windows become invalid, locked and unusable in 90 days? If yes then why? I got it for free. What should I do to remove this watermark and make sure that I have this Windows forever?

A:I have just installed Windows 10 Enterprise 2016 LTSB Evaluation

Uhh...gee...Erez: think about what evaluation means. Try it for a while and if you like it, BUY a real copy. When the timeline runs out, you may be able to rearm (restart the 90-day clock) as many as three more times. But after that, you must uninstall, then reinstall to start another evaluation. It's illegal to convert an evaluation copy into a permanent copy, because it violates Microsoft's licensing terms. 'Nuff said.

A few days ago over half of the shortcuts on my desktop disappeared. I have no idea what happened to cause this. My user desktop folder still showed all of the shortcuts that were previously on the visual desktop. When I attempted to recreate the missing shortcuts on my visual desktop I received an error message asking to rename the shortcut to "Shortcut" (2).

I deleted the shortcuts in my user desktop folder and created new ones on my visual desktop. When I selected "align icons to grid" they all went to the first line at the top of my visual desktop. When I tried to drag them back down they snapped back to the top. When I selected "auto arrange icons" over half of them disappeared again. In addition, when I tried to install Acronis True Image 16 the program would not complete the installation because it could not create a shortcut on my desktop.

I opened Windows PowerShell (Admin) and ran sfc /scannow. The CBS.log file showed two corrupt files. I don't remember which ones. One was a .dll file and the other one was a .pri file. I then did the following:

A:Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB Desktop Problems

That version of Windows is generally present only in large business installations: and usually under the care of an IT department.

Is the computer with the problem yours or your company's? If the latter, can we assume you have permission to make system changes?

If I had to guess, the problem seems to involve Group Policy and permissions. A system restore shouldn't cost you any loss of data, but of course would cause a need for reinstalling any programs added since the restore point was created, plus the need to reinstall any Windows updates that arrived since then also.

Just curious - if you copy & paste (as an administrator) the shortcuts from the File Explorer folder directly onto your "visual desktop" --- do they work, even if labeled (2)?

... [P.S. ... the Task scheduled to create a daily restore point should work - but you might want to limit the amount of space such restore points can use (can be rather steep) ... but make sure that System Restore shows as "On" for the drive in question in the System Protection settings.

To check:

1) Right-click the Windows Start Menu icon
2) Select System
3) Select System Protection (a blue link in the upper left-hand corner)
4) In the Protection Settings, make sure that System Restore shows as ON for the drives you need it for.

The Task won't be able to run a restore for a drive that isn't enabled.]

Hi

I have a notebook Satellite C50D B-11C http://www.amazon.it/Toshiba-Satellite-C50D-B-11C-Processore-Accelerated/dp/B00PI7I99E with Windows 8.1 Update 64 bit.

I created an empty partition and installed Windows 10 Enterprise 2015 LTSB 64 bit.

I noticed however that, at startup, Windows 10 starts immediately not allowing the choice of operating system. Why?

Now, how do I create the boot menu?

Thanks

A:Boot menu with Windows 10 Enterprise 2015 LTSB 64 bit

From an elevated ("run as administrator") command prompt type:

Where the path in red will be the path to the Windows folder of Windows 8.1. Then you can run msconfig to set the default OS and timeout.

We recently purchased some of the Inspiron 5378 2 in 1 laptops. I installed Windows 10 Enterprise x64 LTSB 2015 like I have on the previous model they are no longer making, Inspiron 5368. The problem is the device "HID Sensor Collection V2" driver on dell's website nor any of the drivers from windows update will work. In device manager three out of four parts of the HID Sensor collection v2 have an error code 10 (device cannot start) failed to initialize sensor from HID collection descriptor. Specifically Locations 0, 1, and 2 are the devices not working. The machines came with Windows 10 Pro and the drivers are working correctly. I was under the assumption the driver pack in pro would be the same for enterprise but, I could be wrong.
I have tried uninstalling the drivers and re-installing them, some forums have mentioned disabling auto-rotate but that option does not show up for me anywhere. Microsoft says the manufacturers make the drivers not them and would not help unless we purchased a $500 service contract and the Dell technical representative said they do not support windows 10 enterprise for those machines and would not help me further. I am at a loss to what to try next any help would be appreciated.

I have two machines in question. One 8.1x64 Pro and one 10x64 Pro. When I:
Code:

and
Code:
DISM /online /Get-TargetEditions

, on the 8.1 machine I see current edition is
Code:
Professional

and
Code:
Target Edition: ProfessionalWMC

but not Enterprise. Not that it really matters but would I need to upgrade to 10 to switch over to Enterprise or LTSB?

On the 10x64 Pro machine I see:
Code:
Current Edition : Professional

and
Code:
Target Edition : Enterprise

and
Code:
Target Edition : Education

. The 10 machine was 8.1 Pro which I did the free upgrade with so I don't really want to mess with the OS/licensing unless I know its a sure thing. Do I need a new COA/key to go from Pro to Ent and/or LTSB? Thanks.

A:Is new COA needed to change from Pro to Enterprise or LTSB?

You can't switch from Pro to Enterprise unless you have a volume licensing agreement with MS that grants a volume license key for a certain number of Enterprise licenses, or some other kind of licensing arrangement with MS that covers Enterprise. It is not available for retail purchase (at least, not legitimately). The only exceptions to this ironclad rule are
(1) sign up for the Enterprise version of Insider Preview (Windows 10 Insider Preview ISO Advanced)
(2) Each MSDN subscription include a single license for Enterprise, but it is a multiple activation key

(As you can see, that's how I got access to Enterprise myself--and I'm also running the Insider version, too)
Once you have a key for Enterprise, you *may* be able to perform an Upgrade install. However, the consensus of the TenForums wizards is that a clean install is nearly always a better idea/approach.

So, just discovering that with Windows 8 modern apps (Metro apps), when a new user logs into a machine for the first time, the default set of Windows 8 modern apps are installed (including the old version). Then, each person who subsequently logs in has to run the updates from the store to get onto the latest versions.

What is the Microsoft thinking here? We want to build a master image, update it (including any store apps), and then have it deployed in an updated state for all users.

But as we found out the hard way, you don't update store apps before you run sysprep or you are in not going to be able to even run sysprep to capture the image;
Sysprep fails if Metro Apps have been "updated"

Then, on a machine that is used by multiple people, each has to update the store apps on a per user basis? Really??? Are Windows updates on a per user basis, no. Are service packs on a per user basis, nope. What the hell Microsoft.

Dear IT Pros,
I have 2 questions that need your help and professional advice.
1) Does Microsoft has a tool to check whether a patch (KB) was superseded by another KB? In my case, I'm trying to search whether this KB4022715 and KB4025339 (both of this KB was released in 2017) was superceded
by another KB. This is because a security consultant has advised us to install both of this KB to prevent vulnerabilities but since it was released back in 2017, I suspect there must be a newer KB that supercedes it

My job has a partnership with MS and we received a CD with Windows 7 Enterprise edition. Now I don't know if this is a complete OS or just a trial (it doesn't say trial/demo anywhere) so I'm assuming it's a complete OS.

There is only one CD and does not state if it's 64 of 32 bit. When I go through the install it does not let me select 64 bit (which I would like to install).

Did I miss something during the install? Did MS only send 32 bit copy?

Also can we install this copy on multiple computers? We have # of people that would like to test it but we are not sure if the same CD/copy will be able to be installed on # of computers (and if it will work long term).

Hello All,
I have a laptop that I've been trying to install updates on for the past seven days.  However, no matter what I seem to do, Windows Update shows the "Checking for updates" progress bar with the green marquee.  Here is what I've tried:

1.  Let it check for updates for two days continuously.
2.  Ensured that Windows 7 Service Pack 1 is activated.
3.  Made sure that the two services (BITS and Windows Update) are enabled and running.
4.  Reinstalled Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (twice now), and tried to run updates on a clean install.
5.  Made sure that the computer can connect to the internet.
6.  Tried AutoPatcher (on the previous install), which could download the updates, but would hang on installing them.

I'm running sfc /scannow to see if it finds anything, but this is currently a fresh install.  The only drivers installed are the ones that worked from install, and no new programs have been installed.

Are updates currently just broken for Windows in general, or specific versions of Windows (such as 7)?
Thanks in advance.

Good morning everyone,

I am once again having to ask for help here because I've been unable to install the Patch Tuesday updates released July 12th. (I received the "Updates available" notification yesterday afternoon, July 13th). WU just keeps searching endlessly, and after 2 hours, I restarted the computer to stop the process. (It could not be stopped in Task Manager).

(All day yesterday, July 13th, my CPU kept hovering in the 50% - 60% usage range both off-line and on-line. The only way I could get it to return to normal was what I did in Item # 2 shown below).

Also, NO error codes are being seen either.

Things I have tried thus far:

1. Ran full scans, including for rootkits with my ESET Smart Security, MBAM Premier, and SAS programs. NO issues found.

2. Opened Control Panel > Windows Updates, and changed the existing setting (i.e. Notify me of updates, but let me decide to download and install) to "Never check for updates". I then restarted the computer.

3. Ran the sfc /scannow command. NO issues reported.

4. Ran the SURT tool. The dialog box opened indicating it was initializing and said something about looking for updates. When I checked the computer several hours later, the dialog box said something like, "Installation complete". I closed the box.
However, none of the 10 Important updates (in this month's updates) were installed when I checked the WU list of installed updates.

Hi, we are becoming more and more frustrated with the forced windows updates. These may help home users but professional products like servers are not for everyday users and sometimes require alot of configuration to get legacy applications to work.
Windows will at times force updates no matter what we choose in respect to disable them. It is NOT up to Microsoft to determine if or when the servers I am responsible for need to be patched. Any reading and research we have done here has only yielded the
ability to prolong the updates. Once installed over 50% of the servers give an endless spinning circle and require restore or rebuild, this has become unacceptable and has forced us to start testing our applications with different Linux flavors.

Is there a way to STOP the updates indefinitely?

I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit on SP2 on an old desk top which hadn't been updated since 2012. 
 
I connected to the internet and Windows Update has crashed, however the update history suggests an install Windows Update Agent 7.6.7600.256
 
When manually checking for updates the icon appears to be searching however the icon in the icon tray states 'Windows can't check for updates'. There are no other error codes or diagnostic indicators.
 
I've scoured the internet trying to find a solution and have tried a number of suggested solutions none of which have had any impact.
 
If anyone can offer any help to get the update working again I'd really appreciate it.

Hello,

I am noticing a interesting trend with machines in my environment. I am using SCCM 2012 R2 to push updates to my desktops. All of my desktops are Win 7 Enterprise x64. Since the inception of the Update Rollups in October half of my desktops cannot
install these updates.

The updates install but when the machine reboots it starts reverting changes and reboots several times and the updates fail to install. I have attempted to remedy this by running the WURT and SURT tools, sfcscannow, stopping wuauclt and renaming the softwaredistrobution
folder.  I also tried to download the patch locally and install. None of these have worked.


I have spent over 20 hours trying to figure out the problem and I am in need of help. This is my first post so please be kind. I can attach my CBS logs and WindowsUpdate logs if needed. I can't figure out how to that in this OP.

Thanks,

Gerard

Hello all,

I read many posts about people having trouble with WAIK (Windows Automated Installation Kit), and I must say: I wish I were that lucky. I have my deployment server ready to go (2008 R2) and I am ready to get started and capture my first W7 image. However,
when I try to install AIK on my W7 x64 Enterprise technician PC, I receive an error asking me whether I'm certain I have the correct (x64) version of the software. I downloaded several official Microsoft ISOs, and regardless the language or the version, I
keep receiving this message.

Any clues, anyone? Took the official MOC for deploying Win7, so once I get started, I should be able to work my way through. However, I can't even install the most basic (and essential) tool for deployment...

Thanks in advance!

Hey Everyone,

I've recently acquired a tablet to pilot with my company. It is a Dell Latitude 10 ST2, and my issue is I'm trying to install and upgrade to Windows 8.1 Enterprise, but having no luck so far.

I have the 32-bit version of Win 8 Enterprise on a USB, and when I get to the "Installing Windows 8.1 screen" it get to 35%, and then gives a popup that the "Windows 8.1 Installation Has Failed". I was trying to see if there was a real error message or log to tell me what the issue is, but I haven't been able to locate anything yet. Keep in mind, I don't even make it to the following screen:

Good evening everyone,

My issue is with today's 'Patch Tuesday' Windows Updates.

[System: Win7 Home Premium SP1 x64]. Computer is a standalone, not on any network, and used only by me.

Description of problem:

There were something like 14 - 16 important updates in today's batch. Most of them did NOT install. (Please see attached screenshots showing this + my current WU settings, at the bottom of this post).
NO error codes are being displayed. WU just keeps saying it is downloading updates. The 'download progress' remains at "0%" the entire time, however.

Resolutions attempted thus far:

1. Ran CCleaner, then tried to update again. No success.
2. Restarted computer 3 times, then attempted to update, without success.
3. UNCHECKED all updates except for 3, and tried updating just those 3.
Problem remains.
4. On the 3rd attempt, after waiting 15 minutes, I cancelled the download/installation.
5. Ran scans with ESET Smart Security (v9), MBAM Premier, and SAS. No issues were found.

My question: Is there an explanation for, & a resolution to, this problem?

The only potential explanation I could think of is the Windows Update servers are too busy???
(Don't recall having encountered this type of problem before).

Thank you for your for time and any help!

Once again, the never-ending saga of Windows Updates continuing to "Check for Updates" hour after hour after hour - with no results - is again plaguing me.

(I've already run the program in Brink's article [i.e. Option # 3] and cleared/reset the WU cache). Also have run sfc /scannow - no issues reported. I've also changed the WU setting in the Control Panel to "Never check for updates", and restarted the computer.

Does anyone here have any step-by-step instructions for me to try and resolve this problem and get those blasted updates installed?

Thank you for your time and any assistance.

Hi
Sure,
When manually installing updates you need to switch your update settings to Never check for updates and restart the machine first.
Windows Update Settings - Change
After restart verify that the windows update service is not running if it is Stop and switch to Manual apply and okay.
Make sure KB3020369 is installed if not manually install it this is the main article page with all versions,
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3020369
These other links do prompt you to download as soon as you click on them just to give you a heads up
KB3020369
Win-7 32 bit
https://download.microsoft.com/downl...020369-x86.msu
Win-7 64 bit
https://download.microsoft.com/downl...020369-x64.msu

Then manually install KB3172605 main article page with all versions,

https://download.microsoft.com/downl...172605-x86.msu

Win-7 64 bit
https://download.microsoft.com/downl...172605-x64.msu

After switch your windows update and service settings back to what you had prior and manually check for updates and the rest should show up shortly.

Hi, I am trying to completely wipe my system and reinstall windows, only I don't have the CD. I've looked it up, and it seems relatively straight forward, I just need to save the iso file for the version of windows I'm using to a flash drive and run that to reinstall. The problem is I am running (and only have a key for) Windows 7 enterprise (Version 6.1 Build 7600) 32 bit, and the only downloadable iso file I can find for the enterprise version is the 90 day trial. I don't want the trial though, I want the entire version. Does anyone know where I can find an iso file for enterprise that's the full version, not trial? Or am I supposed to download the trial and put my key in somehow making it a full version? Please help!
edit: I should add that I want to reformat the computer (I don't have anything I want to save, want to put it back to factory standards), not just reinstall windows.

A:Reformating/installing Windows 7 ENTERPRISE (Full, Not trial!)

first you say you don't have a key then you say you do have a key, I'm confused...

Anyhow, if you do in fact have a valid key the eval or trial version should activate for you.
You may have to use the phone in feature the first time. That's not incredibly abnormal though.
You should be okay just using the iso download directly from MS.
If you wind up talking to a live person just tell them the truth. Don't make up stories.
If this is a laptop you may want to look at your documentation to make sure you can't just press a few buttons at the right time and have it restore itself to factory state. (as many of them can do that)

I'm planning to reinstall windows 10 and I know that it will remove Windows updates etc. Will it also remove Microsoft Office 2016 updates? Thanks

A:Will Reinstalling Windows 10 affect Microsoft Office 2016 updates?

That depends on how you plan on reinstalling Windows 10.

Do it this way and you lose everything, including all your data files and Office 2016 completely, including updates. You will have to reinstall everything:
Windows 10 - Clean Install - Windows 10 Forums

Do it this way, and you only refresh Windows 10 itself and nothing else should be affected, including Office 2016:

Hello, Peeps.

Windows 7 X64.

The following Recommended Updates were offered today. I had previous information on all except the last four, which I Googled today.
Most are, it seems, repetitions of the Windows 10 Update stuff that many of us avoided all those months ago. So the hassle would seem to be ongoing. However, the last one, KB3184143 is an uninstaller for several of those annoying very same W10 Updates. Odd. Giveth with one hand, taketh away with the other. A couple of the last four seem OK, and (KB3181988) I have been having problems with sfc/ scannow reporting 'corrupt files but unable to repair' for a while now. Maybe this will sort them out.
The information below is taken from several sources, and the credit belongs mostly to others. I'm just passing it on.

Hi:

GWX has ended.
MS even issued a patch to remove it from Win7-SP1 systems, KB3184143
If you want to subscribe to perpetual paranoia about getting Win10 on your Win7 box, that's up to you.

Also, the current version of KB2952664 has nothing to do with either GWX or telemetry:






Quote:
There is no GWX or upgrade functionality contained in this update.


As for the rest, I'll leave that to other members more interested in this topic than I am.
For the record, though, Apple and Google also use telemetry.
Telemetry cuts both ways -- without aggregate data about how an OS performs in the real world, MS cannot be expected to code needed security and stability patches for Windows or its other major software (such as Office) that will perform properly.
I find it ironic that some of the folks who most loudly decry "telemetry" are the same folks who are first to complain about a "bad" patch on Patch Tuesday. (That's not directed at you personally or anyone else in particular.)

There is a definitive solution. If one destroys all of one's electronic and analog communication and computing devices, physically cuts all cables, fiber-optic lines and other connections to the outside world (not just the internet), and cuts up all of one's credit/debit cards, one can be reasonably safe.

Microsoft confirms no more Windows 10 feature updates in 2016; two coming in 2017

Microsoft published a TechNet blog post on Tuesday regarding what's new in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. In the article, the company confirmed that it has two feature updates planned for 2017, but no more for this year.

Based on feedback from organizations moving to Windows 10, this will be our last feature update for 2016, with two additional feature updates expected in 2017.

The news is right in line with current rumors. Tuesday's Anniversary Update would be the one feature update for this year, and Redstone 2 - the codename for the next major Windows 10 update - isn't slated to arrive until April 2017. Redstone 3 is rumored as well, but without any release timing, so with today's news, it's presumably late 2017.

It's also in line with what Microsoft has already said. Back in May, the firm said that it would be pushing two feature updates for Windows 10 every year.

The obvious question that you're probably asking is, if Microsoft said that it would release two updates per year, why would the company only release one this year? Well, when Microsoft says the word 'year', it could mean a calendar year, or it could mean a fiscal year, which would be over at the end of June. With that in mind, the firm has released two major updates for Windows 10 every year, and is on pace to do so, even with Redstone 2 coming in April.
