    windows update cannot find AAA_SystemSettings_Update_Actio


    Hello gurus

    I'am running Win 8.1 pro and after using forensit profwiz to migrate a domain account to a local account i cannot launch anymore windows update shortcut.
    i get the following message :
    Click image for larger version

    i checked the path manually and the file exists and the current user & system account can access it.

    c:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Packages\windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Inde xed\Settings\en-GB\AAA_SystemSettings_Update_Actions.settingcontent-ms


    i tested various troubleshooters in windows control panel but it did not manage to fix it.

    Do you have any advice to repair this shortcut?

    Thank you

    Hello mtrento, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You might see if the modern Windows Update shortcut below may work better for you.

    Do you also have an issue opening PC settings by chance?

    If so, see if this below may help with both.

    pc settings were also broken.
    the link you provided containing the command bellow , unlocked something and now pc settings is working.

    powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\ImmersiveControlPanel\AppxManifest.xml

    but now when i search on the windows tiles for update; it does not find anymore windows updates.
    i can acces it throught the pc settings or with the shortcut in folder %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

    Thank you

    You're most welcome.

    The command basically re-registered PC settings.

    Do you mean that Windows Updates is not finding any updates available when using the shortcut?
