Microsoft recently released Windows 11 July update KB5015814 to Windows 11 running PCs. The update brings new features & many security improvements for windows components. But Windows 11 update KB5015814 is failing to install for many users. It has been reported in official Microsoft forum by many Windows 11 users.

KB5015814 fails to install for many:

Many Users (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7) have reported in the official forum that the update KB5015814 fails to install for them. The update download gets stuck and doesn’t install further for some, while some users don’t succeed in installing it after downloading. Some users reported about facing error codes like 0x80070246, 0x8000ffff, 0x800f0831, 0x800737701 while trying to install the update.

Now KB5015814 won’t install

OK. I tried to run updates today, 7/12. I got the exact error and reactions as when I tried to install KB5015814 that I got for the KB5014668 failure last month.

I ran scripts, tried a lot of advisor recommendations and did the in place upgrade (but rolled it back) for KB5014668 so who knows what was changed or broken then????

Does anyone have something that WILL work this time? I really don’t want to spend 5 or 6 hours and get no where again.

Will an in place upgrade work or will restoring an image from before June 22 be a better option. I don’t want to do that unless it’s a last option.

Please don’t have me run the canned things to correct an update error. It didn’t work last time so I really would like something that is known to work if that is at all possible.

2022-07 Cumulative Update for Windows 11 for x64-based Systems (KB5015814) Will not load

2022-07 Cumulative Update for Windows 11 for x64-based Systems (KB5015814) will not load and gives Error Code 0x8000ffff.

It starts, gets to 25% and stops.

Actions I’ve taken:

1. Run the Update Trouble Shooter several times, to no avail.

2, Per another recommendation, I’ve checked Background Inteligent Transfer Service. It is correct.

3. Run SFC & DISM, no problems found.

Only 2 things left per other recommendation:

1. Resetting Update Components and

2. In place Upgrade

Before I venture into the above, any other ideas?


022-07 Cumulative Update for Windows 11 for x64-based Systems (KB5015814) fail, error code:0x800f0831

So I tried to install this KB5015814 update today, but it gives me this error code. Update troubleshoot doesn’t work, and I have already set the background intelligent transfer service and Microsoft update to automatic and restarted both but there’s still no use.

Later I tried to enable .NET Framework 3.5(includes. NET 2.0 and 3.0) and .NET 4.8 advanced services in the windows features, but both failed, giving me the same error code:0x800f0831, Also I’ve tried to reinstall the .NET Framework 3.5 from this link:

But when I clicked on the downloaded dotnetfx35 application nothing happened.

Is there any way to fix the issue?

How can I get this installed?

Windows 11 Update 2022-07 fails to install

Hi, I am having an issue with the latest update where it will get to 47% after a couple re-boots and state it encountered a problem. I ran into something similar on another machine where it failed to apply any updates and would constantly try to install them only for them to fail installing and you would have to wait while it rolled backed the update package.

Does anyone know how to get around this problem?
