This important Windows Update troubleshooter is the recommended solution in many Windows support articles, but for some hidden reason Microsoft have made it impossible to obtain.

Is that it? I regret wasting my time.

♥♥♥ Thank you sir!
P.S. Razer mouse & keyboard drivers are like warts in your system - even cleaning out registry files doesn't help and MS Update just keeps trying to install those old drivers "forever". LUL
By the way, I have an enhancement request for Microsoft...
in the "Optional Updates" window, there should be a "check box" next to each individual item where we can check (don't show this again) and have that feature do whatever magic the wushowhide.diagcab file does.

There's something wrong here.
On Win11 there's no way to stop a particular driver update that should not be installed.
In my case it's an AMD graphic driver not compatible with Adrenaline graphic management software the same AMD provides.
Wushowhide.diagcab is blocked, even if its link is available on the Microsoft sites you all mentioned.
The process of updating (Solarwind docet) is a particularly sensitive and vulnerable one.
Therefore, "social.technet.microsoft.com" should be removed or updated with meaningful content.
Graphically, it looks abandoned.
And, notoriously, "social.technet" has been replaced with "techcommunity" where this post is published.
The problem in subject remains open, and users and IT operators should underline it in any available feedback space Microsoft provides.

@Bruce Roberts @Jason Leznek I just would like to state my support for this feature (btw at best only 0.1% of affected users would waste time to do this mind you) due to the fact that I have an older Laptop, top of the line back then 10yrs+ ago. Which did cost a fortune BUT the fact I can still use it comfortably today says it's a worthy investment. The looks of the laptop is still relevant today, as well and there is no problems EXCEPT older generation hardware.
Which brings the issues to DRIVERS SUPPORT! You see my OLD Hardware's driver(laptop/mobile version) is no longer updated by the manufacturer (VERY COMMON issue here~!) but it can still do its job and purpose VERY comfortably even to this day.
Now in order to use the hardware with certain applications, it needs to be in specific driver version (Desktop version - but I got the laptop version). I researched and got around that problem and implemented it, I never had any problems until windows DECIDED for me and harass me with THEIR driver version, which availability is appreciated, BUT unfortunately kinda FORCED. Every couple of days it wants me to Update and when I did... The applications that I use daily WILL NOT WORK. until I roll back or uninstall to reinstall the specific hardware driver for this specific laptop. See the problem now??
I would like to keep having the ability to ONLY SELECT specific device DRIVER update to be offered. Once I consciously and manually UNTICK/UNSELECT something it should be OPTIONAL in the future. I mean I can and would actually be better to go to the official hardware manufacturer's website for their latest driver (if still supported) anyway isn't it?... a simple reminder would do the trick for most ppl.
My time and work is not about upgrading windows and drivers every couple of days! This is not why I purchased and become a customer of Windows 10
