Installing Windows 10 Build 10049


Last Updated on April 1, 2015 by GrahamWalsh

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.
