August Patch Tuesday updates are now available for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile devices

Just a week after Microsoft released the cumulative update 15063.502 for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile devices, the company is rolling out today the August Patch Tuesday updates for both operating systems. If you’re running the Creators Update, today’s update will be labeled “KB4034674” in Windows Update, and “2017-08 Update for Windows 10 version 1703 for arm-based Phone Devices” on mobile devices. Installing the update will bump the OS to build 15063.540, and you can find the full changelog below:

  • Addressed issue where the policies provisioned using Mobile Device Management (MDM) should take precedence over policies set by provisioning packages.
  • Addressed issue where the Site to Zone Assignment List group policy (GPO) was not set on machines when it was enabled.
  • Addressed issue where the AppLocker rules wizard crashes when selecting accounts.
  • Addressed issue where the primary computer relationship is not determined when you have a disjoint NetBIOS domain name for your DNS Name. This prevents folder redirection and roaming profiles from successfully blocking your profile or redirects folders to a non-primary computer.
  • Addressed issue where an access violation in the Mobile Device Manager Enterprise feature causes stop errors.
  • Security updates to Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Windows Search Component, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Microsoft Windows PDF Library, Windows Hyper-V, Windows Server, Windows kernel-mode drivers, Windows Subsystem for Linux, Windows shell, Common Log File System Driver, Internet Explorer, and the Microsoft JET Database Engine.

Microsoft says that there is one known issue which may cause Czech and Arabic languages to switch to English for Microsoft Edge and other applications, but the company is currently working on a fix. As usual, you can download this latest patch from Windows Update, let us know in the comments if you encounter any issues after proceeding.
