Microsoft has started rolling out Windows 10 October 2018 Update build 17763.104 for Insider in both the Slow and the Release Preview ring. This is a cumulative update, which solves a number of problems that can still be found in the October 2018 Update.

Five bugs have been fixed in the new cumulative update. It’s about the following things:

  • There was a problem where the wrong details were not shown in the Task Manager under the Processes tab.
  • Microsoft has solved an issue where apps in some cases stopped responding after a user resumed his or her session from Connected Standby.
  • A problem has been solved, where IME in some cases did not work during a session within Microsoft Edge.
  • There were several problems with the compatibility of third party applications and virus scanners, as well as problems with virtualisation.
  • Finally, a number of driver compatibility issues have been resolved.

Insiders within the Slow and Release Preview ring can download the update by checking the settings menu for updates.

Update Problems

There were some problems with the rollout of the October 2018 Update. There was an error in the software, which caused a small number of users to lose files after the update was rolled out. It’s not sure how many users it was, but Microsoft stressed that few people were involved and that it worked with all those involved to recover the files. In the meantime, Microsoft stopped the update process. Not much later it turned out that the problems had already been traced and solved.

The update is still not being rolled out. Only if Microsoft considers that the update is good enough as a result of this round, will the company offer it again for use.
