        would it be prudent to distribute an askwoody email for folks..

          Thinking about that – an AskWoody Alert – but I’m not sure what I could say.

          It’s a good time to apply updates, but early to install this one particular 1809 patch. Which doesn’t seem to be going out to Windows Update now.

          It’s VERY complex for most people. And the number of people running 1809 is relatively small. And 1809 second cumulative updates have been pretty reliable. And Win10 1809 Pro users who set things the way I suggest don’t have to worry.

          So the question is whether enough Win10 1809 Home users will get bit by a bad third cumulative update – if it ever appears.

            I’m getting it offered on my 1809 machine. Lots of people on the TenForums thread are too.

          Install this update

           

          To download and install this update, go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and select Check for updates.”  That’s indicating it’s for seekers only, not pushed.

            They changed the KB article.

            Never been so glad to see an undocumented change in a KB article!

            The Alert is going out as originally planned. Thanks.

            ‘Install this update’ reads like an instruction to do it immediately. Is that what you meant or do you mean, “if you are silly enough to want to install this update now”?

              Just checked my Win10 Pro 1809 Build 17768.437. It checked for updates as I was watching (I did NOT click “Check for updates”). Says it’s up to date – no pending CUs here or in whsuowhide, so it’s not being pushed to mine.

          So it’s just like any other “optional non-security” update, and the documentation’s wrong.

          Thanks! Whew.

          I didn’t seek, I had the “You need some updates” alert popup. (The update is “awaiting download” as I have blocked automatic install in GP).

          I am not a “seeker” and I received this CU today awaiting download and install.  Looks like it has been pushed automatically to users.  I’m running Win 10 Home Edition.

        I just changed Grp Policy to get 1809 this afternoon (whenever WU decides) so I will probably get this new update with it if it installs 1809 then???

          I don’t think so. I think you’ll get the first cumulative update, but not the second or third.

          But I may be wrong….

        I just updated my 1809 Pro machne with the April updates. Prior to updating each month, I change the “quality update” deferral setting from my normal 30 days down to 10 days – never to zero. That way I’m assured I won’t get any last minute “unvetted” surprises. 😉

        And I use my go-to tools wub.exe and wushowhide. They’ve never failed me – so far…

        unless you have a coworker who likes to hit “check for updates” on every single machine that comes in for service.  it’s like banging my head against a deathstar blast door.  fighting a machine that was unstable, and it became marginally less unstable after he did an overlay of 1809 on top of a corrupted file system with the unstable 1709.  back up wipe the c: volume reload from recovery partition cross fingers.  restore user data.

        Hey look! Another Feature Update!

        You mean I shouldn't click Check for Updates?

        Why does it keep saying "Something Happened"?

        I’ve got a theory….

         

        The new Japanese era began on May 1.  Microsoft decided to prioritize getting fixes out for Japan.  That was the May 1 release.  The fact that they didn’t get those fixes out until it was practically midnight of May 2 in Japan, suggests to me that they took longer to do those fixes than expected…. and someone, somewhere decided that releasing other fixes must wait.

        This “second second” release includes all those Japanese fixes, as well as the usual litany of stuff you’d expect Microsoft to do with the monthly non-security update.

        I guess it also means that Japanese It departments can install the Japanese era fixes without also being forced to roll the dice on the next set of non-security updates.

        Sure would be nice if Microsoft was clearer about these intentions, though…..

        Windows 10 1809 Language Pack Issue, Microsoft recommends Reset of PC

        The three most recent cumulative updates for Windows 10 version 1809, KB4495667, KB4501835 and KB4493509 were not exactly bug free. Windows 10 version 1809 is affected by several issues currently, and Microsoft just added a new issue to the list.

        After installing KB4493509, devices with some Asian language packs installed may receive the error, “0x800f0982 – PSFX_E_MATCHING_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND.”

        Microsoft notes that systems affected by the issue “may” receive the error “0x800f0982 – PSFX_E_MATCHING_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND”. Pretty vague, especially since Microsoft did not even provide a list of language packs with that issue….

        If reinstalling the language pack does not mitigate the issue, reset your PC as follows:

        Go to the Settings app > Recovery.
        Select Get Started under the Reset this PC recovery option.
        Select Keep my Files.

              Came across this seemingly official reply from Creative Labs dated 3rd of May 2019 but nothing more recent post KB4495667 release date as yet.

              ..It is true Creative releases driver for Win 7,8 and 10. However for Windows 10, it was released and intended for initial version of Windows 10. No further releases after that. Some users we’re still able to use it for subsequent Win 10 update and some are not or having some issue which we’re not able to support anymore, since there is no driver update available.
              Rest assured that we will forward this as official feedback..

          Now isn’t that nice… from Bogdan Popa:

          New Creative Drivers with Support for Windows 10 May 2019 Update Coming Soon

          Creative X-Fi sound cards currently not supported

          The 1903 release notes say:

          Creative X-Fi sound cards are not functioning properly. We are partnering with Creative to resolve this issue,

          Looks like they’re having problems with both 1903 and the latest 1809 cumulative update.

        what kind of Creative X-FI sound card is radosuaf using?

        Creative has released new drivers for some of their X-FI cards (if using X-FI Titanium, models SB0880, SB0881, SB0886, SB0888 etc.) on their web site in late March 2019

        for X-FI Titanium HD (SB1270), there’s a new test driver on Reddit that may work on 1903 (still has one BSOD issue for Creative to fix)

        for other X-FI series like XtremeGamer, XtremeMusic & Xtreme Audio, wait for newer drivers from Creative in middle or late May 2019 to be released.

          Just like in the signature: XtremeGamer PCI (SB0730). Nevertheless, I hope it’s going to be solved and luckily I have deferrals on Pro.
