    Does anyone know this script? I have tried searching around for it but there is so much stuff to go through.

    Thanks

    Code:
    Get-BitsTransfer -AllUsers | select FileList | Format-List
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    Scratch that. I have started the upgrade via windows update and reran the command and it appears I can get it now. Will update further if I find out more

    Same problem here. I think the problem is I got the "Downloading 0%" and I did stop wuauserv without stopping the bits service first.
    Now the download is working but it can't reflect it through Get-BitsTransfer.

    It worked for me after I initiated the download to upgrade to 10162.

    I then got the link to the .esd, stopped windows update via services and then started downloading the .esd from the link.

    Almost done. I had to rename the downloaded file which just had the file extension File to .esd, no biggie.

    Open your Windows Powershell as admin if you have not already.

    Did you start the download via Windows Update first?
