When I try to use Lenovo Companion Update, I get "There is a problem in retrieving new Updates..."

2016-10-25, 17:17 PM

"...Please try again later."

 

This problem has persisted two weeks. I've shut down, restarted, etc. and its still not working. What gives?

Please locate a Companion System Update plugin run log and post it here.  It  is located in:

C:\programdata\Lenovo\SystemUpdatePlugin\logs\tvsu_*timestamp*.log

programdata is a hidden folder.  You have to go into folder options>view and Unhide hidden folders.

2016-11-02, 19:18 PM

Is there a way to uninstall companion altogether?
if so what files should be removed from which directories,

there is no "Companion" installation in the "Programs and Features" in the control panel

Thank you !

@Bullshark,

You had the Egather issue I posted in the above post. No machine type/model returned.

The other post stated reboot to let system interface foundation finishing self installing.

 

This newer post below resets the Lenovo apps.

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Windows-10/Lenovo-Modern-ImController-PluginHost-stopped-working/td-p/3468860

After this reset, Companion will update SIF from 1.0.66.01 to 1.0.067.00. 

 

@bc07,

To uninstall the Companion app, right click the Companion entry on the start button.

Select uninstall.

System Interface Foundation version 1.0.067.01 (sif10ww671.exe) was released 11/6/2016.
It should be on your support page.
