Windows 10 Version 1809 Gets Another Cumulative Update

Microsoft is rolling out a new set of patches for the latest version of Windows 10, version 1809, today. The company released the Patch Tuesday for this month earlier, and it’s releasing a new set of updates for Windows 10 version 1809 today.

As Neowin reported, Microsoft actually released updates for some older versions of Windows 10 last week, and it’s not really a surprise to see Microsoft releasing multiple sets of updates for Windows 10 nowadays.

As for the new 1809 update, KB4476976, there isn’t a lot to look out for. The update fixes an issue with Microsoft Edge where it’d stop working with certain display drivers, and more:

  • Addresses an issue that may cause Microsoft Edge to stop working with certain display drivers.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause third-party applications to have difficulty authenticating hotspots.
  • Addresses an issue that causes promotions of non-root domains to fail with the error, “The replication operation encountered a database error.” The issue occurs in Active Directory forests in which optional features like Active Directory recycle have been enabled.
  • Addresses an issue related to the date format for the Japanese era calendar. For more information, see KB4469068.
  • Addresses a compatibility issue with AMD R600 and R700 display chipsets.
  • Addresses an audio compatibility issue when playing newer games with 3D Spatial Audio mode enabled through multichannel audio devices or Windows Sonic for Headphones.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause audio playback to stop responding when playing Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) audio content after using a Seek operation such as rewind.
  • Addresses an issue that allows users to uninstall apps from the Start menu when the “Prevent users from uninstalling applications from Start menu” group policy is set.
  • Addresses an issue that causes File Explorer to stop working when you click the Turn On button for the timeline feature. This issue occurs when the “Allow upload of user activities” group policy is disabled.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents users from installing a Local Experience Pack from the Microsoft Store when that language is already set as the active Windows display language.
  • Addresses an issue that causes some symbols to appear in a square box on a text control.
  • Addresses an issue with two-way audio that occurs during phone calls for some Bluetooth headsets.
  • Addresses an issue that may turn off TCP Fast Open by default on some systems.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause applications to lose IPv4 connectivity when IPv6 is unbound.
  • Addresses an issue on Windows Server 2019 that may break connectivity on guest virtual machines (VMs) when applications inject the low-resource flag on packets.
  • Addresses an issue that occurs if you create a page file on a drive with FILE_PORTABLE_DEVICE characteristics. The “Windows created a temporary warning” message appears.
  • Addresses an issue that causes Remote Desktop Services to stop accepting connections after accepting several connections.
  • Addresses an issue in Windows Server 2019 that causes a Hyper-V VM to remain at the bootloader screen for OS selection when restarting the machine. This issue occurs when Virtual Machine Connection (VMConnect) is attached.
  • Addresses an issue with rendering of end-user-defined characters (EUDC) in Microsoft Edge.

The latest set of updates are available from Windows Update as per usual. Checkout the support page for the list of known issues, by the way.

    <p>My desktop is still on 1803 and hasn't been offered 1809. I figured there must be some compatibility problem that they're working on, so I'm content to wait, but I'm starting to wonder. I'm not willing to force the upgrade and risk screwing something up.</p><p>I got an update labelled 2019-1 today, too.</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#398908">In reply to Bluesman57:</a></em></blockquote><p>There are 5 machines at my place. None of them have been offered 1809 yet. I'll just wait patiently. There's no hurry.</p>

      <blockquote><em>I thank you for posting your problem. I thought I was alone. I went to Windows-Settings / Update &amp; Security. I checked for updates and was still not offered 1809 (I have been on 1803). My PC is very old so I thought I may never be offered 1809. On the same screen, I clicked "Get help". After answering a number of suggestions and questions from the AI (they were good, but I had done them all); the AI sent me to a live person. After answering a few questions for the live-person he sent me to the "windows 10 Update Assistant" and stayed online with me to ensure I was OK. I now have 1809 and am happy.</em></blockquote><p><br></p>

    <p>My HP Envy (2018) is offered the update but has failed to install it for the last two months. "Patiently" waiting for some kind of update from MS or HP. Apparently the Feedback Hub has several threads on it now. What I miss is that there aren't updates other than MS is looking into it as a status. </p>

    <p>I had to uninstall the update. After installing it none of my network cards would work. Couldn't access the internet or my local network.</p>
