Microsoft Releases New Cumulative Updates for Windows 10 1803 and 1709

After a busy week of updates last week, Microsoft today released another new set of cumulative updates for both Windows 10 1803 and Windows 10 1709.

It has only been a few days since last week’s Patch Tuesday which saw new security updates for all supported versions of Windows 10. And Microsoft is rolling out two new cumulative updates for the two most current versions of Windows 10 – Windows 10 April 2018 Update (version 1803) and Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (version 1709).  There are no new features and just a couple of fixes. Here is a look at what’s included in today’s updates.

Windows 10 Cumulative Updates KB4464218 and KB4464217

After installing the April 2018 Update, your build number will be bumped up to 17134.256 and here is a look at what’s included with today’s update:

  • Addresses a Microsoft Intune issue that occurs after installing any of the updates released between July 24, 2018 and September 11, 2018. Windows no longer recognizes the Personal Information exchange (PFX) certificate that’s used for authenticating to a Wi-Fi or VPN connection. As a result, Microsoft Intune takes a long time to deliver user profiles because it doesn’t recognize that the required certificate is on the device.

If you’re still running Windows 10 Fall Creators Update you build number will be bumped up to 16299.666 and here is a list of what’s included in the update:

  • Addresses an issue that may prevent a VPN connection from establishing for some users that are using VPN with IKEv2. The connection fails with the error, “Remote Access Error 809.”
  • Addresses a Microsoft Intune issue that occurs after installing any of the updates released between July 24, 2018 and September 11, 2018. Windows no longer recognizes the Personal Information exchange (PFX) certificate that’s used for authenticating to a Wi-Fi or VPN connection. As a result, Microsoft Intune takes a long time to deliver user profiles because it doesn’t recognize that the required certificate is on the device.

Of course, you should get these update s in the background automatically. Or, if you want to stay on top of things head to Settings > Updates & Security > Windows update. Or, you can manually download KB4464218 for 1803 or manually download KB4464217 for 1709. After the update, hit the Windows key and type: winver and hit Enter to see your build number has been bumped up.

  1. My Windows 10 PC now spends more time updating than it does in actual use. Is there no end to this misery?
    Also, it’s now so over-developed and intrusive that it’s a nightmare to work with. Even saving a document to a place of my choosing rather than that of Windows is frustrating and hard to achieve.

    My current Version/Build is 1803 – 17134.285. Why would the update take it backwards to 17134.256?

    Brian is confused…the KB4464218 changes the build to 17134.286.
    Considering MS’s output of updates lately; it is easy to see how Brian could get confused..

    Similar to Steve’s comment. My Version/Build when I checked this morning was 1803 – 17134.285. I then ran an update and it is now 1803 – 17134.286. Could the discrepancy (i.e., 286 versus 256 in the article) be something to do with international versions versus those for the USA?

    I’m at 1803, 17134.286. I received this a couple of days ago – Australia. I’m running fairly old desktops and laptops but, to this point of time, they seem to be coping with the numerous updates and version changes for the Home edition of Windows 10.
