  • Microsoft releases new version of Win10 patch KB 4023057

    Many people are blaming the KB 4023057 patch for all of the forced-upgrade-to-1709 woes.

    Guess what? Microsoft released a new version of the KB article last night.

    KB 4023057 — Update to Windows 10 Versions 1507, 1511, 1607, and 1703 for update reliability: March 8, 2018

    Only certain builds of Windows 10 Versions 1507, 1511, 1607, and 1703 require this update. Devices that are running those builds will automatically get the update downloaded and installed through Windows Update… This update is not offered from the Microsoft Update Catalog.

    Anybody want to bet that Microsoft just went through an “Aw, jeeez” experience and pulled whatever was cramming 1709 down customers’ throats?

    Man, I can’t believe this…..

    P.S. Thanks once again to @MrBrian. I found this by looking through this morning’s KBNew list.

    UPDATE: Günter Born has an explanation for the last version of  KB 4023057, dated Feb. 8.
