Microsoft today released a new cumulative update for Windows 10 1903 aka “May 2019 Update” in the form of KB4512941. This is the first standalone update for 1903 since Patch Tuesday earlier this month. As is usually the case with most cumulative updates, there are no new features to report. There is, however, a healthy number of fixes that should improve overall system performance and the overall user experience. Here is a look at what’s included in this latest update.

In this scenario, Active Directory returns a “SUCCESS” status even though the change did not occur.
- Addresses an issue that may prevent devices from starting when they start up using Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) images from Windows Deployment Services (WDS) or System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM). The error is, “Status: 0xc0000001, Info: A required device isn’t connected or can’t be accessed.”
