Important Note Windows Quickstart

Windows Quickstart Prevents Patch Installations

In Windows 8 and 10, the quick start function is activated by default, which prevents the installation of patches. This affects both Windows patches that are provided by Microsoft itself and patches of third parties which, of course, includes windream.

Microsoft also points out this problem on their support pages (see https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4011287/windows-updates-not-install-with-fast-startup) and urgently recommends deactivating the quick start function.

This can be achieved by making a respective change in the Windows Control Panel or, optionally, by pressing the Shift key while shutting down.To guarantee an installation of windream patches without problems caused by the operation system, a “real“ reboot of the system is necessary.
