Unable to update Windows - "Your device it's at risk because is out of date..."


Your device is at risk because is out of date

Recently I was facing an issue with windows updates in one of my VDI environments, in short, I am unable to update windows. Attempting to update my golden image, Windows 10, build 1709 shows the following message:

“Your device is at risk because it’s out of date and missing important security and quality updates. Let’s get you back on track so Windows can run more securely. Select this button to start:”

Your device it's at risk because is out of date

However, Clicking “Check for updates” do nothing and brings back the same message over and over again.


After the usual web search and several Microsoft KB, the solution (for my case) was to manually download the cumulative update KB4093112. You can find it here.

manually download the cumulative update

NOTE: Take into account that this is the solution for Windows 10 x64, build 1709, you might need to download the right update based on your windows version.

After the update, windows won’t ask for more updates (for now) and this issue will be solved.

Unable to Access the VCSA 6.7 via WinSCP

One of the many and easiest ways to get the logs from the ESXi hosts and vCenter Server Appliance (VCSA), is accessing directly to the files directory using tools such as WinSCP, which helps to transfer the files between a local and a remote computer ( Ex. VCSA). I never have had issues with the ESXi hosts and WinSCP, however, trying to access the VCSA is a different story.
