Cumulative Update KB3194798 failing to install

I've tried to process this update a few times through Windows Update, but it fails each time, uninstalls, and puts things back where they were.  Any thoughts?  Wait for it to resolve itself? 

Specs:

Windows Version:  1607

Windows Build:  14393.187

MSI GT72 6QE Dominator Pro G

64-bit Intel Core i7

Nvidia GTX 980M

I read somewhere that someone was having problems with a previous cumulative update and it turned out that an Nvidia registry entry was conflicting.  Might be something to that.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks!

Microsoft has released a fix that updates your registry and then the update will install.  It worked for me.

Go to https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=53942

and download and run updateregistry.msi and then install the update and it will be successful.

Hope this helps.
