  • Win10 cumulative updates: 14393.693, 10586.753, both with known problems

    Win10 cumulative updates are out.

    Win10 Anniversary Update, version 1607, KB 3213986 brings the build up to 14393.693.

    Win10 Fall (now “November”) Update, version 1511, KB 3210721 brings the build to 10586.753.

    Win10 RTM (now “1507”) KB 3210720 brings the build up to 10240.17236.

    ALL of them have this “known issue”:

    Users may experience delayed or clipped screens while running 3D rendering apps (such as games) on systems with more than one monitor.

    The workaround is to disable the second monitor. Frack.

    In addition, the 1607 patch has this known issue:

    The Cluster Service may not start automatically on the first reboot after applying the update.

    The “Workaround is to either start the Cluster Service with the Start-ClusterNode PowerShell cmdlet or to reboot the node. ”

    John Wink and Jen Gentleman (and likely others, soon) are helping both on Twitter, @MicrosoftHelps (great, new id) and on Reddit.

      So in other words, Server 2016 should be rebooted twice, but because some managers are reluctant to reboot even once, they put in in a different way.
      In such a case, I would suggest as good practice to reboot twice Windows 10 too.

        It’s funny how we’ve gone from being obsessed with rebooting Windows to being afraid to reboot Windows.

        That monitor flickering stuff makes me so glad I’m still on W7.

      so in other words gamers should completely avoide this month patchs till a fix come with the next patch

      KB3213986 x64 has faile to install numerous times through Windows Updat in Windows 10. I downloaded it manually from Microsoft’s Update Catalog and it still fails to install. I guess I’ll pass on it until I hear that Microsoft fixed it.

        Make sure you go over to Reddit, and let jenmsft or johnwink know. They might ask you for log files, to see if they can fix the problems, both now and in the future.

        And they’re good people. 🙂

      After having a terrible time with Windows 10 updates (version 1607) in December, this round of updates seems to have been much smoother. From start to finish, all the updates downloaded, installed, and restarted in about 30 minutes.

      Thanks to Woody (and everyone else) for their advice and tips regarding Windows!

      Not exactly on topic but… I am running Win10 Pro with “Defer upgrades” checked on a desktop and laptop (not metered) and I have yet to receive the 1607 upgrade on either. I know I can remove the checkmark from Defer but I wanted to see how long the deferral actually lasts. I read 3 or 4 months but am now at 6.

      1. Have any of you with the same setup received 1607?

      2. Does anyone know when 1607 is likely to be pushed to folks with my settings?

      Thank you.
