(Solved) Windows 10 1709 Update Failed Fix


I have already written a tutorial that explains how to repair Windows Update if it is not updated, even in a situation where Windows 10 1709 could not be installed. The guide explains how to test your hard drive for errors, how to test the integrity of the operating system and how to remove the Windows update queue, among other things.

FIX 1 - Microsoft "Fix Windows Update Issues"


Microsoft has provided a general troubleshooting: Troubleshooting problems with Windows Update.

This asks one or two questions and you can download a troubleshooting tool that, while running, examines the different features of your system and the services that must work to deploy Windows Update.

After completion, especially when problems are reported and allegedly fixed, it is time to try Windows Update again.

Although such assumptions are dangerous, I assume your technical support did so without luck.

FIX 2 - Delete Windows Update folder.


The Windows Update folder (C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution) is where Windows saves new updates after downloading. In many cases, the contents of the SoftwareDistribution folder are corrupted and cause problems when downloading or installing updates. In these cases, all these problems can be easily avoided by deleting the "SoftwareDistribution" folder.

To delete the Windows Update folder:

Press Win + R simultaneously to open the control box.
Enter the following command and press OK.


In the list of services on the right, locate the Windows Update service.
Right-click on the "Windows Update" service and select Stop. *
Close the "Services" window.

FIX 3 - Updating Time, Region, and Language Settings


Another unusual solution that seemed to work was to update your account time and language settings. As we all know, Windows automatically synchronizes your time based on time zones. If you have the wrong time zone, you may encounter strange problems, for example if you do not install your update.

  • Press Windows + S to start the search bar. Enter "Settings" in the dialog box and open the result.
  • Check that the date and time are set correctly. If this is not the case, disable the "Automatic time setting" and "Automatic time zone setting" options.
  • Click "Change" under Change Date and Time. Set your time accordingly and select your appropriate time zone. Also turn "Auto Sync Time" off.
  • Press Windows + S again and enter "Language" in the dialog box. Open the first result that comes out.
  • Try using UK/US English in the language settings.
  • Click on "Additional time, date and country settings" in the setting window.

FIX 4 - Manual installation of Windows 10 Build 1709


To solve the problem with Windows 10 Update version 1709, you can simply install version 1709 manually. Take these steps:

Step 1 Go to Microsoft to download the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool.

Step 2 Double-click the MediaCrationTool.exe file to start the tool.

Step 3 Select the Update this PC Now option.

Step 4. Click Accept.

Step 5: Select Keep your files and applications.

Step 6. Click Next.

Step 7 Click Install.
