        Ok, I’ve begun ‘scattered blogging’ 😉

        After initial post I updated bot (German, English) articles, because the update has been offered on one of my test machines running as a virtual machine.

        What I’ve observed, was, that I received after next login a notification to check my privacy settings in V1607.

        Windows 10 privacy settings notification

        So my guess is: This update prepares Windows 10 V1607 machines for upgrade to Windows 10 V1703 (Creators Update). That would be the explanation, why not all user are seeing this update. But maybe I’m completely wrong …

          I’ve been too scared to try! Don’t have a sacrificial VM set up yet. Still need to test the undocumented 4039396

          Several weeks ago, I had all but one of my 1607 AU VMs set to “defer feature updates.” None of them received the “privacy notice” update (don’t remember the KB#, maybe ended in 17 or 37?) but all were automatically upgraded after MS declared 1607 CBB (CBL, whatever). The privacy settings came at the initial login to 1703.

          The one VM I had not set to defer feature updates, however, did receive what was listed by MS at the time as the “privacy settings” update. It did not automatically receive the 1703 update when the others did. Since I wanted it to go ahead and update, I then checked to “defer feature updates” and that initiated the auto update – who knows!

          Anyway, perhaps it depends on how you have the “feature update” setting whether or not you get the notification update.

          Those will not show/requested unless you installed “Windows 10 Creators Update Privacy Settings (KB4013214)”

          KB4033637 just determine that your system is ready for upgrade, but it doesn’t include or offer the privacy settings or the upgrade

          @gborn: You could also use Microsoft’s CBS Package Inspector to inspect the relevant downloaded .cab file downloaded from the site you mentioned.

        I think it’s time to ignore Windows and move to a Linux flavor. I’ve been playing a bit with Mint, while staying with windows 7. I have until 2020 to figure out what I’m doing.

        does seem to change things so the user can see the protection settings, so to enable a change from V1607 to Creator’s.
        I am SO tired of this Microsoft nonsense.
        I’m going back to WIN7Pro, today.

        KB4033637 for 1607 = KB4033631 for 1507/1511

        just an update for the Compatibility Appraiser (similar to KB2952664 for Win7)

        It’s been just pushed to my PC and installed the moment I opened Windows after Bank Holiday break. Time will tell what’s the damage.

        Is anybody using Woody’s latest Windows 10 update control technique getting this update automatically?

        I just got a tweet from @Suslikus:

        Hi I noticed that the UAC was changed to notify me when apps try to make change and also that win defender tried to reset chrome settings

        https://borncity.com/win/2017/08/29/windows-10-v1607-mysterious-update-kb4033637/ has been updated (due to the fact, that MS released a KB article). Mr Brian was a few minute to fast – I was just loggin in here to say, that the package has been updated. Our guesses was right (and more precise) than the details MS released today.

        @MrBrian: thx for your tip with packed inspector – will give it a try. And thx for your details, you’ve published above.

          You’re welcome and thank you also :).

          The details I provided in earlier posts are probably for an older version of KB4033637.

        Appraiser refers to Compatibility Appraiser. It also exists in earlier operating systems.

        You can do a Google search for Windows10.0-KB4033637-x64-v1.005.cab. If you download that file, you can then inspect it with Microsoft’s CBS Package Inspector.

        Funny thing (and I am still waiting an answer from MS on this): my machines got this KB4033637 but our WSUS did not sync it down from Microsoft!  So I don’t know if there is a group policy setting that is somehow allowing my machines (and by extension the machines in our enterprise) to get patches directly from Microsoft.
