Q: 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? 


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

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

Hope this helps.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
