#Windows8 update failure during configuration

Folders-OS-Windows-8-Metro-icon I know it has been a while since i have posted on the blog directly myself.  A lot is going on personally at the moment with Weddings and other potential big plans going on…

In the meantime, I am still working on projects at CPS and to add to the personal busy-ness, projects are going into the go-live stage as well.

Some how I have managed to find time to work with Windows 8 and Office 2013 on my day-to-day laptop, but recently I have found that my Windows Updates have been failing to install / configure.

Anyway, a quick search and the following came up:

  • http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949358
  • Downloaded the fix-it application and it restarted various services including the crypto + other Windows Update based services.
  • Update and restart and et-voila! all is well with the world again.

More blog posts will come along soon (when I get time), as I have been working extensively with the JavaScript CSOM and the REST API’s in JavaScript.
