Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Receives Another Cumulative Update Just Days Before Its Public Release


With Windows 10 Fall Creators Update making a public debut next week, the company has sent a second cumulative update to Insiders currently testing the build 16299.15. Following the release of the RTM build 16299, Microsoft had rolled out a cumulative build 16299.15 earlier this month. The new cumulative update brings the build number up to 16299.19.

Please note that is not a new release but a cumulative update intended to bring some fixes ahead of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update's public release. "This update only includes quality improvements and no new OS features," Microsoft wrote in its announcement post.

Microsoft sends some last minute bug fixes to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

Here's what last minute bug fixes Windows 10 Fall Creators Update cumulative build 16299.19 (KB4043961) is bringing to Insiders.

  • Addressed issue where, after removing apps, they’re reinstalled on every restart, logoff, and login.
  • Addressed issue where localization of the error output from a JET database is broken. Only English error strings are reported.
  • Security updates to Windows kernel-mode drivers, Microsoft Graphics Component, Internet Explorer, Windows kernel, Microsoft Windows Search Component, Windows TPM, Windows NTLM, Device Guard, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows Wireless Networking, Microsoft Windows DNS, Windows Server, Microsoft JET Database Engine, and the Windows SMB Server.

While it is widely believed that this is indeed the release to manufacturing build, Microsoft is yet to release the ISO images of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update build 16299. The new Windows 10 version will be officially released to the public on October 17. However, looking at the Redmond software giant's new deployment approach, this will be a highly fragmented release with some users receiving the update at least six months after its release next week.
