    [Win10Home x64] Latest update failed, Start Menu broken, DISM error 193

    Last night, sometime in the wee hours, I received the dreaded Restart window after Windows installed updates automatically. I work the graveyard shift, and it was a slow night, so I decided to go ahead and restart. The update took a little longer than normal, but restarted fine. I logged back in and noticed I could no longer click on the wifi signal indicator. I could right-click it, but left clicking did nothing. Then I realized the Start Menu no longer worked either. Many other baseline Windows functions have also broken. Display Properties no longer opens. A small error box appears after some time if this is attempted. I can attempt to run Settings in the Run box by typing ms-settings: but this also errors out. Control Panel, Services, Task Manager, and Event Viewer all work fine. Third party apps, such as Steam, and games, all work fine.

    After some research, I found two threads here with folks experiencing similar issues:


    However, after trying many of the same fixes, nothing has helped. Below is a list of everything I have tried.

    1. Normal restart of the computer.
    2. Restart into safe mode.
      1. Someone suggested this elsewhere as a fix.
      2. Start menu still broken in safe mode.

    3. Accessed a different local user profile.
    4. Erased C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\TileDataLayer folder and let it rebuild.
      1. When logging on after doing this, the Edge and Windows Store shortcuts pinned to the taskbar turned black, and then disappeared shortly after.
      2. These were two apps affected by the malfunction.
      3. Replaced the folder and the apps are still missing from the taskbar.
      4. Note that Windows Explorer, iTunes, and MSI Dragon are all still there and work fine, though they cannot be right-clicked.

    5. Ran sfc /scannow from elevated PowerShell. Found corrupt files unable to fix. Logs will be attached.
    6. Ran DISM /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth. Error 193
      1. This error appears when doing anything with the /online flag similar to Cybot's post linked above.
      2. This error is the likely issue causing all other problems blocking solutions I tried later.

    7. Ran System Restore to a restore point a few hours earlier after having installed VirtualBox. System Restore failed.
    8. Downloaded and attempted to install Windows 10 Creators Update. This also fails after downloading all its components.
    9. Attempted in-place upgrade with a USB stick of Windows 10 Home. Failed.
    10. Attempted reinstall of Windows, keeping my files but uninstalling apps. Failed. No changes were made to OS.
    11. Went back to DISM and copied a set of DLLs into the C:\Windows\System32\downlevel folder.
      1. This took quite some effort due to file permissions for Administrator accounts being limited to Read and Execute.
      2. The folder and all contained files are now owned by my account. I was able to perform the copy, but DISM still fails to run with error 193.

    12. Ran sfc /scannow, copying the log file in preparation for uploading here.
    13. Ran SFCFix from stickied post. Scan began, and then crashed with the following message:
      1. SFCFix version 3.0.0.0 by niemiro.
        Start time: 2017-04-12 15:03:24.425
        Microsoft Windows 10 Build 14393 - amd64
        Not using a script file.




        SFCFix version 3.0.0.0 by niemiro has encountered an unhandled exception.
        Currently storing 0 datablocks.
        Finish time: 2017-04-12 15:06:03.289
        ----------------------EOF-----------------------




    At this point, I have run out of ideas. I want to avoid a factory reset if at all possible. All my research points to SFC and DISM as the integral parts of the problem.

    Please advise. This is me at this point:
    Also, as a reminder, I work the graveyard shift. My replies will return at strange hours!
    Thank you for your time.

    I'll put together a fix for you. Do you happen to have a USB thumb drive that you can copy files to?

    Re: [Win10Home x64] Latest update failed, Start Menu broken, DISM error 193

    I have several. One of them has a copy of Windows 10 on it that has plenty of space left over.

    This worked quite well, with one quirk.

    Pasting the following command produced strange results.

    Code:
    copy %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log "%userprofile%\Desktop\cbs.txt"
    copy : Cannot find path 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\%windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log' because it does not exist.
    At line:1 char:1
    + copy %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log "%userprofile%\Desktop\cbs.txt"
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (C:\WINDOWS\syst...ogs\cbs\cbs.log:String) [Copy-Item], ItemNotFoundExce
       ption
        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PathNotFound,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.CopyItemCommand
    But I know my way around and got the file you needed. Here is the zip. Start menu now works, as does most other functions. Let me know if I should proceed to DISM.

    3. Once it finishes, copy and paste the following into the command-prompt window and press Enter. If prompted to overwrite the existing file go ahead.

    Re: [Win10Home x64] Latest update failed, Start Menu broken, DISM error 193

    Thanks for your hard work in guiding me through this when every other source said I would have to reformat. My only remaining question is, where did you pull those files from that you sent me? As glad as I am to have this fixed, I am the kind of person who wants to know how a repair worked, mainly out of technical curiosity, but also to help others that have been affected by this issue.

    I pulled the files from a working machine that I had where these files existed.

    Re: [Win10Home x64] Latest update failed, Start Menu broken, DISM error 193

    That simple, eh? Thanks again. Go ahead and mark this solved.
    For anyone else reading this, it looks like the Start Menu was fixed when we replaced my corrupted WinSxS files. Windows Update was fixed after DISM repair.
