Hi guys and girls,
I have just bought a laptop for my granddaughter to use for her studies and it has Win 8.1 installed but no updates since about April 2014. I have been trying to get the updates for a few days but have always had a fail with nothing arriving.
Now after trying various methods from the web it now seems to be doing something. ATM I have about 28 empty folders in C:\windows\softwaredistribution\downloads\ all are empty so far. Does this mean that the update makes these folders and then when the downloads start the files will go into the relevant folder prior to the install?
If not I might have to see if I can return the laptop to get a refund or exchange. As a matter of interest I did manage to manually install a couple of items when trying to make the 'fixes' and although it did have a free upgrade to Win10 that is not available because it has expired when I bought it a few days ago.
