Microsoft releases fix for Windows 10 Insiders unable to install Production build 14393.222

As we have covered over the last few days, a select subset of Windows 10 Insiders was faced with an infinite loop of update installing screens after installing Build 14393.222 to their machines. While Microsoft initially broke silence on the issue a few days ago, and posted to the Microsoft Support forms that a fix was in the works, the fix has now officially gone live by way of a Microsoft Installer fix it tool (via ZDNet.)

Word on the fix was delivered to ZDNet’s Ed Bott via an email from a Microsoft spokesperson. The email addressed the issue at hand and also links back to the fix-it tool. The official Microsoft statement reads:

“We became aware of an issue with the recent Windows 10 cumulative update that impacted a small number of customers in the Windows Insider Program that were running a previous build of the OS. We have created a solution to resolve this issue, which is now live and can be accessed here

So, to resolve the issue with Build 14393.222, you should visit this web page, and download the fix it tool. After running the tool, it will make certain registry changes to correct the problem, which was previously described by community members in the Microsoft Support forums.  Are you a Windows Insider that experienced issues with Build 14393.222?
