Microsoft released new patches for Windows 10 versions 1709 and 1703 yesterday, which are only available for Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Education editions. Indeed, these two versions of the OS have now reached end of support for Windows 10 Home and Pro users, but Microsoft is still offering one year of additional servicing for Enterprise and Education users.

These two new patches are optional, but all the quality fixes that are coming with them will be included in next month’s Patch Tuesday. For Windows 10 version 1709, the build 16299.1182 is bringing the following fixes:

  • Addresses an issue with looping redirects between Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11.
  • Updates wininet.dll to prevent the re-creation of File Transfer Protocol (FTP) control sessions.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents the OS from loading new icon files if it encounters an icon file that has a bad format.
  • Addresses an issue to set the date separator properly in the Japanese short date format. For more information, see KB4469068.
  • Updates time zone information for Morocco.
  • Updates time zone information for the Palestinian Authority.
  • Addresses an issue in which Windows attempts to renew Azure Active Directory (AAD) token certificates when there is no internet connectivity. This issue occurs during AAD authentication and slows the performance of applications.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause a temporary KRB_AP_ERR_MODIFIED Kerberos sign-in failure in applications and services configured to use a Group Managed Service Account (GMSA). This issue occurs after the automatic update of the service account password.
  • Addresses an issue that causes a sign-in to fail with the error, “Incorrect Username or password” when using an empty or null password and Windows Defender Credential Guard is enabled.
  • Addresses an issue that causes Microsoft Office and other applications to prompt for a password after you change a user account password. This issue occurs on hybrid Azure Active Directory (AD) joined systems.
  • Addresses an issue with BranchCache when it is in distributed cache mode. BranchCache may use more disk space than assigned for the republication cache. To fully address the issue, devices that have exceeded the disk space assignments should empty BranchCache using the netsh branchcache flush command.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause a Stop D1 error when you increase the random-access memory (RAM) capacity of a CPU (“hot add”) on a virtual machine.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause event 7600 in the Domain Name System (DNS) server event log to contain an unreadable server name.
  • Addresses an issue with Microsoft Edge that displays an error page when you go to a page that was previously posted.
  • Addresses an issue with scrollLeft in Internet Explorer.
  • Addresses an issue that causes rendering to stop working for elements.

For Windows 10 version 1703, the build 15063.1839 brings an almost similar list of improvements and fixes, and you can read the full list below:

  • Addresses an issue with looping redirects between Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11.

  • Addresses an issue to set the date separator properly in the Japanese short date format. For more information, see KB4469068.
  • Updates time zone information for Morocco.
  • Updates time zone information for the Palestinian Authority.
  • Improves performance related to case-insensitive string comparison functions such as _stricmp() in the Universal C Runtime.
  • Addresses an issue in which Windows attempts to renew Azure Active Directory (AAD) token certificates when there is no internet connectivity. This issue occurs during AAD authentication and slows the performance of applications.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause a temporary KRB_AP_ERR_MODIFIED Kerberos sign-in failure in applications and services configured to use a Group Managed Service Account (GMSA). This issue occurs after the automatic update of the service account password.
  • Addresses an issue that causes a sign-in to fail with the error, “Incorrect Username or password” when using an empty or null password and Windows Defender Credential Guard is enabled.
