    Posted on MARCH 14, 2017

    After taking last month off, Microsoft is back on the normal Patch Tuesday schedule. And among the updates heading out today are cumulative updates for all of the supported versions of Windows 10.

    If you’re on Windows 10 version 1607 (which is to say, the Anniversary Update), you’ll seeKB4013429 among the updates you’ll receive today. This update adds no new features, as usual, but fixes a number of bugs and increments the OS build number to 14393.953. You might also see KB4013418 and some other updates as well. (And if you’re on an older Windows 10 version, you will see slight different updates.)

    According to Microsoft, KB4013429 includes the following changes:



    1. Tower Totals: 2xSSD ~512GB, 2xHHD 20 TB, Memory 32GB

    SSDs: 6xOS Partitions, 2xW8.1 Main & Test, 2x10.0 Test, Pro, x64

    CPU i7 2600 K, SandyBridge/CougarPoint, 4 cores, 8 Threads, 3.4 GHz
    Graphics Radeon RX 580, RX 580 ONLY Over Clocked
    More perishable

    2xMonitors Asus DVI, Sony 55" UHD TV HDMI

    1. NUC 5i7 2cores, 4 Thread, Memory 8GB, 3.1 GHz, M2SSD 140GB

      The update seemed to go well on my Win 10 VM test system…

      Note that this test system is just that – for testing Win 10, not for real work.

      For the first time on my test system yesterday I noticed that the SuperFetch service was continually reading files from my system drive when the system was idle (it normally stops when the cache is pre-filled with files you’re likely to need).

      Also, there have been confirmed reports that MS Dynamics CRM 2011 is negatively affected by the March updates, though it’s not clear whether the problem extends to Win 10 systems. It sounds like the root cause of that still needs to be identified.

      I suggest that people with Win 10 systems that they need to rely upon should still heed Woody’s MS-DEFCON 2 level and put off updating until the dust settles. I’m sure that once Woody feels enough time has gone by and others have verified that the latest updates haven’t broken anything else he’ll move the MS-DEFCON level to 3 or more.
