How did Ozil not score then? And now Watford have scored from a harsh penalty decision. Hopefully Giroud can score a winner.

Installing KB4035631 With Server 2016
Wednesday 11th October, 2017 13:18
You can fail to do it the easy way or you can manually do it the hard way. The TL;DR is download and install the MSU file manually.

I started off trying the easy way, letting my Azure VM download it through Windows Update. Despite saying "Downloading", something had clearly finished as TIWorker.exe was causing high CPU usage. I rebooted, for good measure, then used sconfig.cmd to try and download and install the update. I left it running. Overnight. TIWorker.exe used 8 hours of CPU time (about 12 hours elapsed time) before I gave up and killed the process.

I decided to go with Plan B, downloading the MSU file from Microsoft Update Catalog:


Download the Server 2016 version and once that file is on your server, simply open it to install the update in a matter of seconds.

This appears to have been acknowledged in the comments on this Microsoft Partner Support page in the last few days as a known issue allegedly related to the use of Express CAB files that will supposedly be addressed in the coming weeks, and as it's not a security update this isn't a huge deal, but it is annoying and more importantly it may result in increased CPU usage (on a single core) that could affect performance on some servers.

I can definitely understand why many organisations are still using Server 2012 R2 and keeping clear of Server 2016 for now.
