    VS2019 Upgrade to 16.6.0 major issue

    There is a major issue being experienced across the VS2019 community when updating VS2019 to the latest 16.6.0 version. See https://developercommunity.visualstu...omment-1041312 (and also https://developercommunity.visualstu...up.WMIProvider for all the duplicate reported problems!).

    I had the issue myself, and for me Retry and Modify then a reboot seemed to fix it.

    Just a heads up that you might wish to delay updating to 16.6 until this issue is resolved.

    Yes. I had similar problems on two different PCs yesterday. The errors were however slightly different.
    Anyway Modify/Restart helped on both PCs.

    From Microsoft:

    We are working on a solution to this problem so that it won’t happen again, but this won’t help you if you are already experiencing it. This is a SxS issue where a computer has to have two different version of VS in order to see it. The solutions mentioned by those who retried or repaired are valid. As far as I know this is the only problem with the install so I expect VS be fully functional once the retry/repair completes successfully.

    We are testing a solution to this problem and intend to release it as soon as we complete internal testing.

    Apologies at the significant disruption this has caused.

    This issue is now supposedly fixed in release 16.6.1

    Even with 16.6.1, issues regarding the upgrade are still being reported.16.6.1 seems to work OK for some but not for others.
