Microsoft Releases Cumulative Updates for Older Windows 10 Versions

Microsoft has released new Windows 10 updates today. Although we have already received this month’s Patch Tuesday updates, this is the second set of updates heading to Windows 10 devices today. It’s slowly becoming a trend for Microsoft to release two different sets of patches each month instead of sticking to a single Patch Tuesday update, and this month’s nothing different.

What is interesting, however, is that Microsoft hasn’t released a new set of updates for the Windows 10 October 2018 Update, or version 1809. That’s, of course, the latest release of the OS, and considering the number of bugs it has, I am quite shocked to see no updates for it today. I mean, Microsoft somehow managed to re-release the update to the public with a Bluetooth playback bug that has existed since July of this year.

Either way, you are here for the updates, so here’s a quick breakdown: version 1803 (the April 2018 Update) is getting KB4467682, which brings the build number up to 17134.441. Version 1709 or the Fall Creators Update is getting KB4467681, bringing the build number up to 16299.820. Version 1703, or the Creators Update, is getting KB4467699, bringing the build number up to 16073.1478. And lastly, the Anniversary Update or version 1607, is getting KB4467684, bringing the build number up to 14393.2639.

Most of these updates include bug fixes and security patches, so nothing much to see here. Do check out the full changelogs, however, as there are some known issues in these updates.

    <p>So all these updates introduce the same Windows Media Player seeker bug… yet there's nothing referencing media anywhere in the fixes.</p><p>Someone needs to get their act together quickly, I feel it's beginning to turn into a train wreck.</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#373451">In reply to BenIsaacs:</a></em></blockquote><p>According to the Windows Blog, even Windows 7 and 8.1 have the WMP seek bar bug, with the recent updates installed…</p>

    <p>Beginning? I think it&nbsp; is already a train wreck. </p>

    <p>MJF says "<span style="color: rgb(8, 14, 20);">it looks like the Cumulative Updates to the older versions of Windows 10 released today all introduce the problem with the Seek Bar in Windows Media Player to Windows 10."</span></p><p><br></p><p><span style="color: rgb(8, 14, 20);">WTF?</span></p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#373797">In reply to fastoy:</a></em></blockquote><p>…and I was going to post a snarky attempt at humor "Microsoft is bringing the 1809 bugs to older versions" but it looks like reality instead.</p>
