    Hi everyone, I think I found a bug with Windows 10 RTM + using a proxy server:

    I can't download any Windows Update (despite showing me the list of updates). It stays at zero. The same machine with Windows 7 or 8.1 worked fine. Some things like adding languages work perfectly, web surfing, etc. Only Windows Update doesn't work. It's a fresh install.

    I have searched the web and some guys found the same with preview builds, but I think the bug still exists and I cant seem to resolve the issue.

    I really like Windows 10 but there are a lot of bugs reported by users.

    Any help?

    They're doing something weird with a tap tunnel to convert IPv4 stuff to IPv6 or something I think.
    You would need to find proxy stuff that works as intended on Win10.

    I think I found the solution:
    *Start an elevated cmd.exe
    *Run "netsh winhttp show proxy" to check proxy settings for kernel (these are not the same as Internet Explorer settings).

    If empty (like my case):
    *Run "netsh winhttp set proxy server:port" with your proxy settings.

    Will check later and post results.

    Well, it worked. Downloading many updates as I speak. Damn you Microsoft for not testing Windows 10 enough.

    This is frustrating. There is a good free proxy that I like but most of the websites have it blocked.
    Oh well. At least it works for P2P
