May Patch Tuesday updates are out for Windows 10 versions 1803 and 1709

As Microsoft has just wrapped its Build 2018 Day 2 keynote, the company has just released new Patch Tuesday updates for all shipping versions of Windows 10. This includes the first Patch Tuesday update for the freshly-released April 2018 update, which apparently has its fair share of bugs.

If you’re already running the April 2018 update (aka Windows 10 version 1803) on your PC, you can now download the build 17134.48 (KB4103721) update today. The release notes are pretty short and can be found below:

  • Addresses an issue with the April 2018 Windows Servicing update that causes App-V Scripts (User Scripts) to stop working.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents certain VPN apps from working on builds of Windows 10, version 1803. These apps were developed using an SDK version that precedes Windows 10, version 1803, and use the public RasSetEntryProperties API.
  • Addresses additional issues with updated time zone information.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause an error when connecting to a Remote Desktop server. For more information, see CredSSP updates for CVE-2018-0886.
  • Security updates to Windows Server, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Microsoft scripting engine, Windows app platform and frameworks, Windows kernel, Microsoft Graphics Component, Windows storage and filesystems, HTML help, and Windows Hyper-V.

For those of you still running the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, the build 16299.431 (KB4103727) update is now available to download with a slightly longer list of fixes:

  • Addresses an issue in Internet Explorer that might cause communication between web workers to fail in certain asynchronous scenarios that involve multiple visits to a web page.
  • Updates Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge to respect the video preload flag in certain scenarios.
  • Addresses an issue on AMD platforms that causes intermittent loss of USB port functionality after resuming from Hibernate (S4).
  • Increases the user account minimum password length in Group Policy from 14 to 20 characters.
  • Addresses an issue with the April 2018 Windows Servicing update that causes App-V Scripts (User Scripts) to stop working.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents customers from typing Hangul correctly with Microsoft’s Korean IME in Microsoft Word Online.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents customers from selecting a Microsoft add-in on a second monitor.
  • Addresses a known issue in KB4093105 that may cause the message “We couldn’t download Windows Mixed Reality software” to appear on some Windows 10 Mixed Reality devices.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause an error when connecting to a Remote Desktop server. For more information, see CredSSP updates for CVE-2018-0886.
  • Security updates to Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Microsoft scripting engine, Windows app platform and frameworks, Device Guard, Windows kernel, Microsoft Graphics Component, Windows storage and filesystems, Windows Hyper-V, Windows virtualization and kernel, HTML help, and Windows Server.

This build also comes with a known issue where some non-English platforms may display the following string in English instead of the localized language: ”Reading scheduled jobs from file is not supported in this language mode.” Microsoft says that this error appears when you try to read the scheduled jobs you’ve created and Device Guard is enabled, and the company is working on a fix coming in a future update.

Even though the Windows 10 April Update has been available to download since April 30, Microsoft previously said that the general worldwide rollout would kick off today, May 8th. As usual, it will take months for this new version to propagate among all Windows 10 users, but if you don’t want to wait you can follow our different tips to get it today.
