Microsoft today has released some out of band cumulative updates for Windows 10 1803, 1709, and 1703 a week after its regular Patch Tuesday.
While Microsoft did release several updates for its regular Patch Tuesday last week, the company today is rolling out more improvements and fixes for Windows 10 1803 and earlier builds. The company is rolling out KB4345421 for Windows 10 1803 which includes some under the hood fixes and no new features. It will also bump your build number to 17134.167. Here is a look at what you can expect with today’s update for 1803.
Windows 10 1803 Update KB4345421
Here is a look at what’s been improved and fixed for Windows 10 1803 in this update:
- Addresses an issue that may cause some devices running network monitoring workloads to receive the 0xD1 Stop error because of a race condition after installing the July update.
- Addresses an issue with the DHCP Failover server that may cause enterprise clients to receive an invalid configuration when requesting a new IP address. This results in a loss of connectivity.
- Addresses an issue that may cause the restart of the SQL Server service to fail occasionally with the error, “Tcp port is already in use”.
- Addresses an issue that occurs when an administrator tries to stop the World Wide Web Publishing Service (W3SVC). The W3SVC remains in a “stopping” state, but cannot fully stop or it cannot be restarted.
Unless you’ve disabled automatic updates, you should receive this update in the next couple days. But if you want to stay on top of things, you can check for the update by heading to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update or manually download it here for Windows 10 and Server. After the update completes, hit the Windows Key and type: winver and hit Enter. You will see your build number has jumped to 17134.167.
If you are holding off on upgrading to Windows 10 1803, note that there are also updates for other Windows 10 versions including KB4345420 for Windows 10 Fall Creators Update 1709 and KB4345419 for Windows 10 Creators Update 1703.
