    New Update [KB3000850]

    Win8.1 has a huge update this AM, about 725MB. I didn't get the KB number but will post back when finished. Got it, KB3000850.

    Update showed 2 huge updates today, one was optional. I tried both and neither one installed properly. The machine was set back to the pre-update state each time. Will wait a few days and see what happens. I can't be the only one with a load failure on both updates.

    You need to identify the updates by KB number. Remedies may not be the same for all failures.

    But why is your system date set to 2099?

    I have seen where having the wrong system date can cause failures to update.

    System date is fine and set to the proper day. I want to know why windows thinks it is 2099.

    Reordered the updates in the log by name and each one shows a failed update followed by a successful one. The log always showed the failed updates first because of the 2099 date issue.

    I just deleted the log file in the datastore to get rid of that problem. I can still see what updates have installed by looking at the installed updates instead of the update history.

    So I guess this problem is solved except for the funky date issue.

    Check the date & time settings in your computer's UEFI (or BIOS).

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dytqa3YN9sE This does go work, go exactly by these instructions. I had 1 update that wouldn't install I tried several times, wouldn't work. I went to You Tube tried these exact instructions, and it worked perfect. That was about 2 months ago. It,s fine now. You Tube search type in ( Fix for Windows 8 Failure configuring Windows Update ) in case link doesn't work. Thanks, Chuck
