New cumulative update for Windows 10 packs Windows Store fix, more

For the second time since Patch Tuesday, Microsoft is releasing a new cumulative update for Windows 10 users. The latest for Anniversary Update (1607) users ticks the build number up to 14393.970 and simply includes a pair of fixes for Windows Store errors and an Internet Explorer 11 bug.

Here's a look at what's new (opens in new tab) in cumulative update 14393.970 (KB4016635) (via Neowin):

  • Addressed a known issue with KB4013429 that caused form display issues with CRM 2011 on Internet Explorer 11.
  • Addressed the issue with KB4013429 that prevents users from updating apps from Windows Store with 0x80070216 error.

In addition to Anniversary Update users, Microsoft has also pushed out a small cumulative update to anyone still on the original Windows 10 release version, 1507. At build number 10240.17320 (KB4016637), the update simply addresses the same Internet Explorer 11 issue seen in the notes above.

We haven't seen the latest update land just yet via Windows Update, but their presence on Microsoft's support site (opens in new tab) indicates that they should be rolling out relatively soon. Have you seen the updates land on your machine yet? Be sure to let us know in the comments.

  • Nothing on my pc
  • No update for me too.
  • Same here, nothing on my SP3
  • Do we have windows capture 3D experience?
  • I wonder too. Where is this app? They promised it on Windows 10 and Android/iOS when Creators Update will be released. https://youtu.be/Lx4_XsWkVOA?t=1m6s
  • It's in the Store.
  • What is the name of the app?
  • Not yet.
  • I hope they we'll find a solution for 0x8e5e0408 error, after you change your username. It's annoying and it's still here after all most 3 years.
  • Just checked, and still not on mine.  However, it seems this isn't as critical, as "nobody uses Internet Explorer" and "nobody on PC uses Windows Store apps."
  • Are you so sure? I think someone still use IE11 especially in enterprise and many customers use Windows Store to buy games and some useful apps.
  • I used the quotes around those statements, as I've seen plenty of other people on this site make those claims. My company still requires IE11 as the only supported platform for our product. (there are plans to finally move to HTML5 next year).  And I'm sure plenty of others out there still rely on IE for their browsing needs.  If nothing else, it makes a great XML viewer. I have plenty of Windows Store apps on my system.  I know the MS Dev portal for Store apps lets developers see how many downloads an app gets, but I wish the Store displayed this like the Play store does.
  • Slightly related - because - Windows... :/
    .
    Wanted to talk about BLUE LIGHT reduction/NIGHT light issue that Zac mentioned.
    .
    IF, we can have COLOR PROFILE in Lumia 535, 650, 950/XL and basically all the Lumia's sold since 2013, then WHY can't we have BLUE light reduction ???!!! It's possible to do it manually already. Just make it automatic!! According to MSFT's *explanation* in the feedback hub app, it's due to hardware limitations... TOTAL BS........
  • "Explanation" is really weird because it is not hardware limitation, they just should say that it is harder to implement this feature on Mobile.
  • use the stand alone installer and it takes about one hour.
  • No new update available at this time it;s now 7.20 pm(19.20u)at the evening at my current location the Netherlands,normally i receive udates starting from 7 pm(19.00u) at the evening,but nothing to see
  • Maybe MS has pulled. Anyone got yet
  • It's only available from the Microsoft Update Catalog, not Windows Update. Take a look at the support site under "How to get this update" at the bottom of the page and there is a link to the update catalog if you would like to install it. They did the same thing with the out-of-band 14393.726; that was never released on Windows Update but was available through the catalog only. The article should probably be updated to avoid any further confusion about how to get this one :).
  • Oh well if they can't send via normal channels, i doubt many will install
  • Yeah, you're absolutely right. When Microsoft "distributes" updates this way they they don't consider it important enough to push to the masses via windows update IMO. My guess would be that the resolved issues only impact a small number of users (I've not experienced them). That said, it's probably safe to skip this update unless you're affected by the two resolved issues or just really want to keep your computer as up to date as possible.
  • That was only in Release Preview and it was a disaster.
  • Actually it was published as an official release via the update catalog (never via Windows Update) after it was in Release Preview, making it available about a week later, as I recall, to everyone if they chose to download it. I never had any issues with that one either, but I know mileage can vary. 
  • No update here and I get an error on the Update catalog page with this KB number
  • Follow the catalog link on the support page linked in the article above, takes you right to it.
  • The link "encountered a problem".
  • Meh ..... nothing.....
  • This never arrived on any device on live ring via WU. To be clear, Microsofts support page does not list .970 as being available via WU under "How to get this update". March 20, 2017—KB4015438 (OS Build 14393.969)
