Windows 10 is just as stupid as Windows 8

I have written about how I wasted more than a day trying to upgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 10 few months ago. It kept on failing without indicating the reason for it. Eventually I realized that it was because I had set the Windows Temp folder at a non-default location. Once I set it back, the upgrade was successful and quite fast thanks to SSD on my PC.

Windows 10 got a major update this week. I have been going through the same issues. It downloaded fine but installation failed. I tried multiple times to realize that it just was not working.

Realized that I had set the TEMP folder away from the default location after the upgrade to Windows 10. So I set it to default position again and boom… The update just installed without a glitch.

Incredibly stupid behaviour from Windows 10 considering there is a proper UI to let me change the location of the TEMP directory.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
