Small cumulative update heads out to Windows 10 Anniversary Update PCs
Microsoft has another batch of fixes on the way for Windows 10 users still on the Anniversary Update.
Another cumulative update is on its way out to Windows 10 PCs, but only for those who haven't made the jump from the Anniversary Update just yet. In fact, this is the second cumulative update to be released outside of the typical Patch Tuesday schedule for Anniversary Update PCs in August. Unlike last time, however, the changes in this latest update are much fewer in number (via Neowin).
Here's a look at the full release notes (opens in new tab) for cumulative update KB4039396 (build 14393.1670):
- Addressed issue where Update History and hidden updates are lost and a full scan for updates happens after installing OS Updates 14393.1532 through 14393.1613, including KB4034658. Installing this update will not restore past update history or hidden updates for users who have already installed the listed updates. However, this current update will address this issue for users who have not yet installed them.
- Addressed issue with WSUS update metadata processing that can cause some clients to time out with a 0x8024401c error.
There are no known issues to be aware of with this update. If you happen to have a PC that hasn't made the jump to the Creators Update just yet, you should be able to grab these changes via Windows Update now. The update can also be grabbed manually via Microsoft's Update Catalog (opens in new tab).

A little something for Clover Trail owners. ;)
This update is not just for Windows 10 Anniversary, it is also for anyone who has Server 2016.
Odd. I got an unscheduled update on my laptop running AU, but the KB number is different. In fact, I can't find details about it anywhere. KB 4033637, in case anyone's wondering.
