When trying to upgrade my Windows 7 desktop PC to Windows 10, I downloaded and ran the Media Creation Tool, which stopped with an unhelpful "Something happened" message, showing the error code:

   0x800704DD - 0x90016

 

Can someone enlighten me as to what this means, and how to cope with it?

Did you set up an account as admin?  Try logging out and then logging into that account.  For your error is telling you that you're trying to do something only permitted on the admin account, google here: https://www.google.com/search?q=Windows+error+code+0x800704DD+-+0x90016&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8

 

You can go into Users and make yourself an admin.  Right click on desktop, Personalize, Control panel (click on the triangle), select User Accounts.  Then restart.

 

There's a command to always grant you admin rights, but I'll not give that one here.

Hmmm, I see... But even if you're not admin isn't it supposed to throw a UAC popup at you, you enter admin credentials and you can continue?

Reginaldvw, the UAC does pop up, and you can enter your Admin password, BUT... still get the error.  I tried this repeatedly.  Then saw some info on-line saying you need to actually LOG IN to an Admin account.  Tried that, and it worked fine.

So basically this means you are logged in as a user and you have no administrator rights. You should log out with your user account and then log in with an administrator account.

It does not matter what you do i get the same well almost same error massage since free upgrade to Windows 10 ended i think its to do with Microsoft not letting us download the ISO images i even tried to download ISO image for Windows 8 and 8.1 and Windows 10 error message is Error code 0x800706D9 - 0x90016 i don't remember others error message. Microsoft has a lesser known web page for Windows 10 Tech Bench Upgrade Program which provides documentations, scripts, tools and various Windows 10 ISO images even this web page where before you were able to download Windows 10 ISO image taken down. Visit the Windows 10 Tech Bench Upgrade Program web page at https://www.microsoft.com/software-download/techbench.
