Microsoft pushes update patch for Windows 10 build 9879

Users on the Windows 10 preview build 9879 are starting to see a patch being sent out via Windows Update. Dubbed the Windows Technical Preview November Update, the relatively small update clocks in at just 1.6 MB. At this time, it appears that the KB3019269 update is being pushed out to resolve the bluescreen error that some were experiencing.

According to Microsoft's Gabriel Aul on Twitter:

"Calling all #WindowsInsiders! Just posted hotfix for the 0xAB bluescreen that some in Fast ring were hitting. Please go to WU to download!"

It looks like Microsoft wants to see how the update performs before pushing out build 9879 to Slow ring users:

"We want to get some mileage on this today before pushing 9879 to Slow, so please tweet me if you hit any probs after installing."

Have you seen the update yet on your Windows 10 machines? Let us know.

Thanks to Paul for the tip.
