  • Download-only cumulative update for Win10 Creators Update, KB 4049370

    Looks like we have a tiny cumulative update for you Win10 1703 users who are still running 1703 on Surface Laptops. It’s download only — so it won’t show up in Windows Update.

    KB 4049370 will bring you up to version 15063.675. Its sole purpose, according to the KB article, is to fix a bug introduced in the Sept. 12 cumulative update:

    This release is intended for Microsoft Surface Laptop audiences only. This update includes quality improvements. No new operating system features are being introduced in this update. Key changes include:

    • Addressed issue where after installing KB4038788, some Microsoft Surface Laptops boot to a black screen. Additionally, you must press the power button for a long time to recover.

    If you bought a Surface Laptop, you have my condolences.

    Thx to Tero Alhonen.
