winkey? as in half of a purple teletubbie?
or perhaps you missed the undersized spacebar?
me: guilty of too often not using use the shiftkey.
tip of the day for north americans: keep your drinks cool in the esckey.
alternative 2: from a Benny Hill Asian impression: winkey winkey nudgey nudgey...
This internet thing is amazing! Letting people use it: worst idea ever!
I just checked, and 1803 is the build I'm showing. (installed 5/24) I should also mention that this workstation had some minor issues that made me revert to a previous restore point...which created major issues, leading to the migration to a newer workstation I had 'waiting in the wings'. Today though, I'm working on the old system (waiting on a sound card for the new system) and it seems almost normal...almost everything works even though many of the programs don't show up in 'programs and features'. I can't say I've seen anything with this update that seems noteworthy other than it seems to break stuff...but not everywhere...my other two Win10 systems have no negative side effects.
I am going through a similar issue, but for me the error code is
Reading through various boards gleaned very little, but on one there was mention of making sure you have the latest NVidia graphics drivers installed, so I am trying that right now.
Will try that Powershell script if it fails again.
Most peculiar. After updating the NVidia driver, I was able to perform the full update. Had to do a couple of restarts manually. After that.... it reports that the update failed. And of course it started downloading the update yet again...
Yes that update really sucks. It requires a ton of space. Have not bothered with it since it will not install because of space, and my SSD does not have enough to spare unless I uninstall almost everything. May get around to doing it, or replacing the SSD.
What causes this is a corrupted registry key in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE hive. Unfortunately even if you get past this on the current upgrade you'll have the same issue on the next one. Your best option is to do a clean install from a bootable DVD or USB drive.

I was considering the Soapbox because the tools mentioned in this post are certainly not kid sister safe.
So I was at my parent's place last night.
Had dinner there, had a nice walk, and we were supposed to go watch a movie.
But then my father drops the bomb.
The bomb that would ruin my evening and probably a better part of my weekend.
"I have a little problem with a customer and you can probably help me."
"Sure dad, what's up?"
"One of my customers can't print a Crystal Report."
A CRYSTAL ELEPHANTING REPORT @$#(&$!@(&#!
In a WinForms application.
Spent two hours browsing the SAP website (never have I found a less helpful website), installing runtimes, installing NuGet packages, dragging missing DLL's to the customer's computer.
To no avail
So I'm spending this weekend trying to get Crystal Reports to work, thanks dad
"I don't feel like it because it's a few hours of work" is not a very good reason.
Sure, saying "no" IS an option... If you want to destroy the good relations you have with people.
My dad did tons of things for me even though he'd rather be doing other things.
If I say "no" now he'll be saying "no" next time.
And his happiness when it's solved is so much better than his sadness/disappointment when I say "no".
All in all saying "no" really isn't worth it (and so not an option).
The problem's a bit deeper, CR doesn't start at all.
Missing DLL's, wrong versions of DLL's, wrong locations of DLL's, wrong installation of DLL's, etc.
We've tried some stuff, but couldn't figure it out.
The only way my dad could get it to work is by installing his development environment on the customer's computer, which isn't quite how it's supposed to be done
