  • So what, exactly, is the new KB 4315567 “Compatibility update for upgrading to Windows 10 version 1803”?

    Posted on June 27th, 2018 at 07:42 Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    The KB article says basically nothing:

    This update makes improvements to ease the upgrade experience to Windows 10 Version 1803.

    Supposedly it’s for Win10 1803 Enterprise. Which doesn’t make a whole lot of sense — a KB for Win10 1803 Enterprise that makes it easier to upgrade to Win10 1803 Enterprise? Pshaw.

    The update isn’t available from the Catalog.

    We’ve had “compatibility updates” in the past, including KB 2952664 and KB 2976978, but they just increased telemetry in Win7 and 8.1, respectively. Unless you wanted to upgrade your Win7 or 8.1 system to Win10, they were useless. Worse than useless, because they increased Microsoft’s snooping.

    Anybody know what’s going on?
