  • This month’s second cumulative updates for Win10 appear — but 1809 is missing again

    This is starting to get repetitive.

    Yesterday, Microsoft released its second monthly cumulative updates for Win10 versions 1803, 1709, 1703, and 1607. The second “optional non-security” patch for 1809 is MIA, as usual.

    As best I can tell, none of this month’s bugs have been fixed. Indeed, there’s a new one to add to the potent stew:

    If you enable per font end-user-defined characters (EUDC), the system will stop working and a blue screen will appear at startup. This is not a common setting in non-Asian regions.

    I also see Monthly Rollup Previews for Win7 and 8.1.

    Same advice as always: Don’t patch. Wait for the screams of pain to subside.
