Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Error 80004005 Windows update for Windows 10

I have a problem to update my Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. When I'm trying to update, the computer restart, try to install Windows 10 the restart again but it's always Windows 8.1.

And when I look into the Windows update, updates fails with the error code 80004005 and again download Windows 10. I tried many times but always getting the same error. I tried to fix the error by running the Windows Troubleshooter, this helps to fix some problem but the update fails again.

  • Thanks for the answer. I'll try to download the update again..

  • Hello lorein, it is found that many users are getting this error generally when the Window 10 is not activated properly or the license copy is not legitimate, so try to fix the error 0x80004005 by following the steps given below:

    1. Select the Start button, then select Settings > Update & security > Activation,
    2. After that select Troubleshoot to run the Activation troubleshooter.

    Hope this will fix the error but if not then try to fix the Windows Update issues with the given steps.

    • Hit the Windows Key, and type troubleshoot > hit Enter.
    • Choose View all on the left panel and run Windows update troubleshooter from the list.
    • Click Advanced, and check that the Apply repairs automatically option is checked > choose Run as administrator.
    • Click on Next and follow the on-screen instruction and run the troubleshooting process.
    • Once the process is complete, now check you can install our planned Windows Updates without errors.
