Installing Windows 10 Build 10049


If you have tried to upgrade from build 10041 to 10049 and are experiencing issues with constant requests for a restart etc then the following steps may fix your issue, that I was experiencing.

  1. Open a Command Prompt (Run as Administrator)
  2. Type: cd %windir% and press the Enter key.
  3. Type: net stop wuauserv and press the Enter key
  4. Type: ren softwaredistribution softwaredistribution.old and press the Enter key.
  5. [ Note: if you get an error message, ignore and type the above again and press Enter ]
  6. Type: net start wuauserv and press the Enter key.
  7. Type: Exit and press Enter, then go back and check for Windows Updates again.

Hey presto, you should be able run the update, it will take a while to download and then restart.
