Insider Preview Windows 10 -10041, sfc/scannow, really?


Honorable Member
Part of an answer of Microsoft on a problem with dwm.exe (see my topic W10 on small / marginal systems) is run sfc/scannow. That was a disaster, when I returned after an hour or so, I found my PC trying to install W10 TP 10041. I just rebooted, it told me that it could not install and all looks normal now.

My question
Maybe my installation is corrupt, maybe sfc/scannow is broken (maybe even both are corruped) so I really like to know if anyone of you successfully ran sfc on build 10041?

Maybe the scan interferred with the automatic installation of 10049......

Forget this question, it was interfering with the installation of 10049...
