Hi Nathan,


Good Day.


I am new in this community and please bear with my English as I'm not a native English speaker.


I am seeking for a solution for the Feature update to Windows 10, version 1703 — also known as the Windows 10 Creators Update. This update is failed to install receiving an error code 0x800705b4. I ran the Windows Update Troubleshooter, and it says that problem was corrected, so I tried to install the update several times and the problem still persists. I have checked the update history and some updates were installed including Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB4033631) but the Feature update to Windows 10, version 1703 is failed to install. 


Is there any way to fix this issue and still get the version 1703 from the windows update and/or direct link to obtain a copy of the stand alone installer for the said version, if any?


Any help would be highly appreciated.


Thank you in advance.

I have the same issue as the gentleman's note above me. 
Trying to install 1703 on a HP 650 Laptop, running Windows 10 64bit O.S.
The auto installer has listed that the package has failed to install several times. Yet, other items have installed. 
Any solutions would be appreciated.
