Microsoft ships new round of fixes for Fall Creators and Creators Updates

What you need to know

  • Another round of cumulative updates is now available for prior releases of Windows 10.
  • Both the Fall Creators Update and Creators Update have received plenty of fixes.
  • The updates are available now via Windows Update.

This month's "Patch Tuesday" was two weeks ago, but Microsoft has opted to issue another round of cumulative updates for two older versions of Windows 10. Rolling out now via Windows Update is a batch of bug fixes for the Fall Creators Update and Creators Update.

If you're still running the Fall Creators Update, you'll see KB4499147, which ticks the build number up to 16299.1182. Here's what's included:

  • Addresses an issue with looping redirects between Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11.
  • Updates wininet.dll to prevent the re-creation of File Transfer Protocol (FTP) control sessions.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents the OS from loading new icon files if it encounters an icon file that has a bad format.
  • Addresses an issue to set the date separator properly in the Japanese short date format. For more information, see KB4469068.
  • Updates time zone information for Morocco.
  • Updates time zone information for the Palestinian Authority.
  • Addresses an issue in which Windows attempts to renew Azure Active Directory (AAD) token certificates when there is no internet connectivity. This issue occurs during AAD authentication and slows the performance of applications.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause a temporary KRB_AP_ERR_MODIFIED Kerberos sign-in failure in applications and services configured to use a Group Managed Service Account (GMSA). This issue occurs after the automatic update of the service account password.
  • Addresses an issue that causes a sign-in to fail with the error, "Incorrect Username or password" when using an empty or null password and Windows Defender Credential Guard is enabled.
  • Addresses an issue that causes Microsoft Office and other applications to prompt for a password after you change a user account password. This issue occurs on hybrid Azure Active Directory (AD) joined systems.
  • Addresses an issue with BranchCache when it is in distributed cache mode. BranchCache may use more disk space than assigned for the republication cache. To fully address the issue, devices that have exceeded the disk space assignments should empty BranchCache using the netsh branchcache flush command.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause a Stop D1 error when you increase the random-access memory (RAM) capacity of a CPU ("hot add") on a virtual machine.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause event 7600 in the Domain Name System (DNS) server event log to contain an unreadable server name.
  • Addresses an issue with Microsoft Edge that displays an error page when you go to a page that was previously posted.
  • Addresses an issue with scrollLeft in Internet Explorer.
  • Addresses an issue that causes rendering to stop working for svg elements.

Creators Update PCs, meanwhile, will see KB4499162, which moves the build number up to 15063.1839. Here's what's included:

  • Addresses an issue with looping redirects between Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11.

  • Addresses an issue to set the date separator properly in the Japanese short date format. For more information, see KB4469068.
  • Updates time zone information for Morocco.
  • Updates time zone information for the Palestinian Authority.
  • Improves performance related to case-insensitive string comparison functions such as _stricmp() in the Universal C Runtime.
  • Addresses an issue in which Windows attempts to renew Azure Active Directory (AAD) token certificates when there is no internet connectivity. This issue occurs during AAD authentication and slows the performance of applications.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause a temporary KRB_AP_ERR_MODIFIED Kerberos sign-in failure in applications and services configured to use a Group Managed Service Account (GMSA). This issue occurs after the automatic update of the service account password.
  • Addresses an issue that causes a sign-in to fail with the error, "Incorrect Username or password" when using an empty or null password and Windows Defender Credential Guard is enabled.
