Windows 10 Gets New Cumulative Updates

Posted on December 11, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Windows, Windows 10 with 5 Comments

It is the second Tuesday of the month, meaning Microsoft released new cumulative updates for the supported versions of the OS. The company released a set of cumulative updates just in late November, by the way. However, the company didn’t release a new update for the latest version of Windows 10 — version 1809 — back then.

Today’s set of updates brings KB4471332 for Windows 10 version 1809, which brings a fix for Windows Media Player and a number of security patches:

  • Addresses an issue that may prevent the use of the Seek Bar in Windows Media Player when playing specific files. This issue does not affect normal playback.
  • Security updates to Windows Authentication, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Internet Explorer, Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Microsoft Graphics Component, Windows Storage and Filesystems, Windows Wireless Networking, Windows Kernel, Microsoft Edge, and Microsoft Scripting Engine.

Although the update does not include any known issues, Microsoft says the company will not be releasing any more updates or preview releases for Windows 10 till 2019 because of the holiday season.

Microsoft also released updates for Windows 10 version 1803, version 1709, version 1703, and version 1607. Do note that both version 1703 and 1607 are no longer supported for consumer SKUs of Windows 10, so you will have to upgrade to the newer versions of Windows 10 if you are still running the older versions.

    Has anyone actually been offered 1809 via Windows Update? I've got a handful of PCs, and even a Surface Pro, and have not been offered it anywhere, yet. (Not that I am complaining, mind you...)

      I have not gotten a sniff of it, except for the one computer on the Insider Program, which is now on 19H1. I cannot imagine that there is not going to be some sort of management impact from the fiasco that is 1809, 10, 11...

      My Lenovo T570 was offered it late last week. I finally let it reboot on Sunday evening.


      All good. In fact, it's fixed a long-standing frustration I've had with this laptop. After resuming from sleep I'd find I couldn't use WiFi. The WLan AutoConfig service, if you tried to stop it, would hang. So you'd have to go shoot its particular svchost.exe process, then start the service manually. WiFi would magically come good immediately. Updating / changing / etc drivers had no effect. But 1809 has nailed this issue.


      So consider me a happy upgrader :D


      Apart from that, I don't think I have noticed a single thing that's different. I'm so unlike what I used to be back even 5 years ago when I would've been all over the settings screen and spotting the differences - I just don't care enough anymore. It's my work laptop - it just needs to work :P
