      The pages say how to get this update is to go to Windows Update and “Check for Updates.” Would that seem to imply you have to be a “seeker”?

      Perhaps this is a “Preview,” not released on Patch Tues and a “quality update (not security), that doesn’t come through the usual WU channels (like the “Preview Rollups that are optional in Win7/8.1)?

      When the .net update includes security fixes, it’s pushed (see https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4483452  )  if it just as quality fixes it matches up with the “preview” and are optional.  They push the .net’s when they are security, and they don’t push when they are just fixing bugs.

        The other issue with Quality (non-security) .NET Framework Updates is that they break the normal supersedence. One old update which was superseded by a newer Security Update becomes required again when the last installed update is a Quality Update.
        The recommendation here is like with the Windows 10 Cumulative updates to stick with those flagged as Security Updates, which are normally those released on the main (second) Patch Tuesday.
        I am not yet aware of any Critical Update for .NET Framework in the recent times. This category seems reserved more recently for Office Updates released in the first Patch Tuesday, but should be treated like Security Updates, i.e. mandatory, even if installed with a delay of maximum 1 month.

      Updated yesterday morning my Win 10 1803 to 1809 (17763.404) and got the following .Net updates :

      2019-01 KB4480056
      2019-02 KB4486553
      2019-02 KB4483452.

      No Mar. Apr. updates.

      I’m a  “seeker” and this update (KB4489192),  doesn’t appear in my machine in the WU.

      I have Windows 10 Home (OS Build 17763.404) and the .NET Framework 4.7.2 installed by default for W10 1809.

      First, wrong link.

      Here’s the correct link to the KB article dated April 2, 2019:


      I upgraded my Windows 10 1803 Pro computer to Windows 10 Pro 1809 on March 12, 2019. The KB Numbers for the .NET Patches I got then were:

      KB 4480056, KB4486553 and KB4483452.

      I checked on April 2, 2019 and got only the Second CU for March 2019 for Win 10 1809 (KB4490481).

      I checked again today (April 7, 2019) and was offered only the Windows Defender Definition Update.

      KB4489192 is nowhere to be seen.

      So it appears this update is not being offered to all PCs with Windows 10 1809 Pro and .NET Framework as part of the current (March 2019) round of Windows Updates.

      I am guessing we who did not get the patch yet will see it on or after Patch Tuesday next week. This appears to follow what is called the “quality update” pattern mentioned in this thread. The KB Article seems to be functioning in the “Preview” mode.

      At least for me.


      P.S. — No blue screens after applying the Second CU for March 2019.

      Well. There’s definitely something funny going on.

      I’m seeing kb4480056 pushed again, even though it’s been superseded by kb4483452… which I’m not seeing.
      Though, kb4483452 (and kb4486553) have also been superseded by kb4499405 which actually does seem to be new, and is also being pushed.

      Might it be relevant that kb4480056 is “.NET Framework 3.5 and 4.7.2” but 4499405 is “.NET Framework 3.5, 4.72 and 4.8” … though then again the interim versions would also seem to have been “3.5 and 4.72” ?
