Microsoft has released a new patch to fix printing issues in Windows 10 version 1903. Earlier this week, the company acknowledged that the print print spooler service on Windows 10 version 1903 may intermittently have issues completing a print job, but this bug is finally fixed in the freshly released build 18362.388 (KB4524147).

This patch also includes a fix for an issue related to Features on Demand on Windows 10, and you learn more in the release notes below:

  • Addresses an intermittent issue with the print spooler service that may cause print jobs to fail. Some apps may close or generate errors, such as the remote procedure call (RPC) error.
  • Addresses an issue that may result in an error when you install Features On Demand (FOD), such as .Net 3.5. The error is, “The changes couldn’t be complete. Please reboot your computer and try again. Error code: 0x800f0950.

If you’re running older versions of Windows 10, you can also download optional updates today that include the two aforementioned fixes. Microsoft isn’t aware of any known issues in theses patches, but keep in mind that these two fixes will also be included in this month’s Patch Tuesday, to be released next week on October 8.
