        Susan, I noticed that the January MSRT (v5.85) was not listed in the January Update Summary Windows 10 section of the Patch Watch article in Issue 18.2.0 – 2020-01-18 of the AskWoody Plus Newsletter. Is this typical – that any new MSRT will not be listed there?

        I notice that again when updating (for the THIRD time) to 2004 that Event Viewer is populated by a growing number of instances of Event 642 (ESENT).  There are more and more upon every restart!  No one, least of Microsoft, seems to have any answer to this issue that actually works except one: roll back to 1909!

        I have wasted hours (during busy tax time!) with this nonsense and am out of patience with it.  I am rolling back to 1909 again today. Until I see plenty of chatter that indicates, definitively, that this issue is fixed, I plan to skip this upgrade completely on all of my systems.

        I continue to regret updating to Win 10 from Win7. It’s been like trading a Lexus for a Trabant!

        I would sure be interested to know if there IS ever an answer to this.

          It doesn’t hurt anything and is a non issue.  Cosmetic issues in Redmondland do not get high priority.  1909 will be falling out of support in May.

        Got offered the Office 2010 updates today. They are usually not an issue but thought I would check if we have an all clear for them since I now have been following here.

        Note to chasrome about the Event 642 (ESENT) errors in Win10 Event Viewer

        Event 642 bug for Win10 2004/20H2 appears to be fixed in upcoming KB4598291 preview update, which is currently in the beta & release preview channels for Windows Insiders.

        Susan’s monthly update listings include her recommendations for Microsoft 365, listing the various versions and builds.

        I have version 2012, build 13530.20376. This build never appears to be mentioned, not even in the Excel update sheets.

        What do I do?
