Windows 10 Creators Update and Anniversary Update get new patches

Noted by Neowin, Microsoft yesterday pushed out new cumulative updates for both the Windows 10 Creators Update (version 1703) and the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607.) These patches push the Creators Update up to build 15063.936 and the Anniversary Update to build 14393.2097. As usual, the updates address multiple issues across both versions the operating system, while also coming with a set of known issues.

Those running the Creators Update should see KB4077528 in Windows Update, pushing them up to build 15063.936. A manual download can also be found here, though keep in mind there is the ongoing known issue where you might not be able to download this update if your AV software hasn’t been updated with a specific registry key.

  • Addresses issue where an application cannot read or write attributes of windows that belong to another process using Get/SetWindowWord, Get/SetWindowLong, or Get/SetWindowLongPtr.

  • Addresses reliability issue where certain Device Guard rules may cause the system to stop working.
  • Addresses issue where a 0x06d9 failure occurs when a user attempts an OS upgrade or an LCU update. The system automatically reverts to a previous version of the upgrade or update.
