Windows 10 Update giving error code 0xc1900209

Running on a Mac Mini in boot camp partition with Intel Iris Graphics 5100, which is causing the error... Any fixes available?

Thank You


Ok, to sum things up, here a few hints to identify the cause of error 0xc1900209. 

According to this technet article the error code stands for: 

0xC1900209 The user has chosen to cancel because the system does not pass the compatibility scan to install the update. Setup.exe will report this error when it can upgrade the machine with user data but cannot migrate installed applications. Incompatible software is blocking the upgrade process. Uninstall the application and try the upgrade again. See Windows 10 Pre-Upgrade Validation using SETUP.EXE for more information.

To identify the incompatible app, grab a Windows 10 install image (use Windows Media Creation Tool to download the appropriate Win 10 version) und mount it. Then execute the file setup.exe located in the root folder of the Win 10 install image. The upgrade wizzard shall list incompatible apps. 

In case, an unknown app is enlisted from upgrade troubleshooter, it's possible to analyze the xml files to find out more details. The steps are discussed within my blog posts.
