Windows 10 October 2018 Update Inches Closer to Re-Release

Posted on October 16, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Windows, Windows 10 with 38 Comments

Microsoft’s Windows 10 October 2018 Update had a very rough start. It all started when Microsoft released the update to the public, soon following multiple reports of a data deletion issue affecting some users. The company later pulled the update, proceeding to provide an explanation to users as the company continued to work to fix the issue.

Although Microsoft has supposedly fixed the data deletion issue in a recent Insider release of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update, the company today released another build for Insiders in the Slow and Release Preview rings with some additional fixes. The company today delivered KB4464455, which brought the OS build number up to 17763.104.

  • We have fixed the issue where the incorrect details were being shown in Task Manager under the “Processes” tab.
  • We fixed an issue where in certain cases IME would not work in the first process of a Microsoft Edge user session.
  • We fixed an issue where in some cases applications would become unresponsive after resuming from Connected Standby.
  • We fixed several issues causing application compatibility problems with 3rd-party antivirus and virtualization products.
  • We fixed several issues with driver compatibility.

It’s not clear when exactly Microsoft plans on releasing the update to the public once again. For now, it’s clear Microsoft is busy fixing some of the other early, albeit minor, issues in the update as it gets ready for a re-release to the public. The rollout will likely be a lot more cautious this time around, though.
