PSConfig.exe failed to Upgrade..

You can upgrade SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013 using "PSConfig" from cmdlet, some time it's getting "Failed" (i.e. 10.00% : Failed to upgrade SharePoint Products.) Even if you are trying to upgrade from SharePoint Configuration Wizard.  If you are not find any solution, just follow the steps.

Open couple of commend prompt as Administrator;
CMD 1: 

  • In SharePoint 2010:
    • Go to "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\bin"
  • In SharePoint 2013:
    • Go to "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\bin"
  • Type "PSConfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -force -cmd applicationcontent -install -cmd installfeatures"
While running this, go to cmdlet 2

If you see the screen like, what I mentioned "Image 1" 
(Image 1: Command Prompt "1")

Simply type "net start SPTimerV4" in cmd 2
(Image 2: Command Prompt "2")

Cheers finally you will successfully upgrade your SharePoint Server and check it our in your CA.
