Windows 10 Fall Creators Update build 16193 bugs

Download and install issues

Apparently, installing build 16193 is not an easy task for all Insiders. Many are still struggling to complete the installation process, due to various issues:

  • Errors 0x80070002, 0x80070003, 0x080070005 are blocking the process
  • PC rolls back to the previous build version
  • No error message appears, but the install process gets stuck
  • The build doesn’t get passed the first restart.

Windows 10 Insider Preview 16193.1001 (rs_prerelease) – Error 0x80070002

I’m getting this error when I try to install with windows update. Uninstalled Malwarebytes. reboot laptop. Still get the error. […] It downloads ok but when updating at 5% it jumps to 100% and then displays the error.

Apps won’t run

Insiders report that they can’t open many of the apps installed on their computers after installing build 16193.

After installing Insider release 16193 ( from 16188) I could not run any installed apps.  Also when I ran File Explorer it took over a minute for the green search bar to complete.  I was able to roll back to 16188, only by using the option in “stop insider builds”.  After rollback, the computer is running normally.

My People breaks Windows 10

Insiders report that My People causes a series of issues when placed on the taskbar, including the File Explorer not opening, Internet Explorer being unresponsive, Windows crashing, and more. Turning My People off seems to fix all these issues.

After getting past the login screen, the Taskbar would flash and reset every 15 seconds or so.  I found that clicking the My People icon caused the Taskbar to flash and reset immediately.  Aha!  That must be the culprit!  I was able to get into Taskbar settings and turn My People off.  Then things started to calm down.  Windows seemed to function properly on the limited Safe Mode basis.  I was able to use File Explorer ok, and access the Web using Internet Explorer.  Leaving the My People Taskbar setting to Off, I restarted.

Finally Windows booted normally without crashing.  I just updated the Store apps successfully.

These three issues are the most common problems caused by build 16193. If you’ve encountered other bugs, tell us more about your experience in the comment section below.
