Windows 10 May 2019 Update Gets New Patches

Posted on June 28, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Windows, Windows 10 with 4 Comments

Microsoft is releasing a new update for the latest version of Windows 10, the May 2019 Update, or version 1903. The company released cumulative updates for version 1903 earlier this month, so this is the second set of patches coming for version 1903 this month.

Microsoft also released two sets of patches for some older versions of Windows 10, though the second set of updates for those were very minor.

As for version 1903, Microsoft released KB4501375 last night, which brings the build number up to 18362.207 (from 18362.175). The update includes a number of minor patches and some security fixes, so there isn’t any major fix included:

  • Addresses an issue that fails to display the cursor when you hover over the keyboard magnifier.
  • Addresses an issue with looping redirects between Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11.
  • Addresses an issue with Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) marker display.
  • Addresses an issue with programmatic scrolling in Internet Explorer 11.
  • Addresses an issue with displaying portions of a webpage that has many elements and multiple nesting levels under certain conditions in Internet Explorer.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause “Error 1309” while installing or uninstalling certain types of .msi or .msp files on a virtual drive.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause Night light, Color Management profiles, or gamma correction to stop working after shutting down a device.
  • Addresses an issue that only shows grey scale in the camera during Windows Hello enrollment.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause playback of some video content generated by iOS devices to fail.
  • Addresses a desktop and taskbar flickering issue on Windows Server 2019 Terminal Server that occurs when using User Profile Disks.
  • Addresses an issue that allows users to disable the sign-in background image when the “Computer\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\Personalization\Prevent changing lock screen and logon image” policy is enabled.
  • Addresses a disconnection issue when using fitness software on an Android phone that has the Your Phone application installed.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents the Windows Event Log service from processing notifications that the log is full. This makes event log behaviors, such as archiving the log when it reaches a maximum file size, impossible. Additionally, the Local Security Authority (LSA) cannot handle CrashOnAuditFail scenarios when the Security log is full, and events cannot be written.
  • Addresses an issue that causes Office 365 applications to stop working after opening when they are deployed as App-V packages.
  • Addresses an issue that may prevent Container Hosts from receiving an address from a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server.
  • Addresses an issue that may prevent some upgrades from Windows 7 from completing successfully when third-party antivirus software is installed.
  • Reinforces the Certificate Revocation List (CRL) on Internet Key Exchange version 2 (IKEv2) machines for certificate-based virtual private network (VPN) connections, such as Device Tunnel, in an Always On VPN deployment.
  • Addresses an issue that triggers a Group Policy update even when there are no policy changes. This issue occurs when using the client-side extension (CSE) for folder redirection.
  • Addresses an issue that may prevent the Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) from starting a device from a Windows Deployment Services (WDS) server configured to use Variable Window Extension. This may cause the connection to the WDS server to terminate prematurely while downloading the image. This issue does not affect clients or devices that are not using Variable Window Extension.
  • Addresses an issue that may display the error, “MMC has detected an error in a snap-in and will unload it.” when you try to expand, view, or create Custom Views in Event Viewer. Additionally, the application may stop responding or close. You may also receive the same error when using Filter Current Log in the Action menu with built-in views or logs.
  • Addresses an issue with WinHTTP registrations that increase the registry size and delay the operating system’s startup.

It’s worth noting that the update still includes the same Windows Sandbox issue that was included in the update from earlier this month where the feature fails to start for some users. You can find out more about the latest update here.

    Don't forget to also install the new Servicing Stack Update for 1903, KB 4506933.

    at least the KB4501375 update for v1903 includes the fix for Event Viewer "Custom Views" problem, which was occurring not only with the earlier June 2019 updates for 1903 but also the earlier June 2019 updates for other Windows versions

    Well, the latest update just corrupted the bias in my desktop motherboard. I've tried every thing to revert back to usable bias but nothing has worked. If you can't get it to bootup my desktop is dead in the water.


    The only thing that I can contribute this too was during the update my bias screen came up and asked for a flash update. Stupidly, I clicked on it. A bar came up and proceeded to the very end about an 1/8" from the end and just hung there. After awhile I turned off the box and discovered it had been corrupted. Do not do a flash update!!!
