Windows 10 Version 1511 New Update KB3118754 Available now

Microsoft today released its first cumulative update for the Windows 10 November update version 1151 or Build 10586.3. Here’s how to get it right away.

Microsoft today released its first cumulative update for the Windows 10 November update version 1151 or Build 10586.3. There isn’t much documentation yet about what’s included, but it does improve the functionality of Windows 10.


Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB3118754

Here’s a look at what this update contains according to the Microsoft Support page:

This update includes improvements to enhance the functionality of Windows 10 Version 1511.

Windows 10 Version 1511 updates are cumulative. Therefore, this package contains all previously-released fixes (see 3105211). If you have installed previous updates, only the new fixes that are contained in this package will be downloaded and installed to your computer.

Of course, the update will come automatically to you, or if you want to get ahead of the situation, you can manually download the update now by heading to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update.

A restart is required and if you have notifications enabled, you should see it pop up on your screen. You can always schedule the restart for a time that works best for you. For more on that, read our guide on how to schedule Windows 10 Update restarts.

Restart Required

Microsoft has been busy with updates for Windows 10 today. It also rolled out Preview build 10586.11 for Windows 10 Mobile, which should be the last preview build we see on Windows Phone before general availability, which is also coming soon.

I haven’t noticed anything unusual, but if you experience any issues with this update, leave a comment below, or post your questions in our Windows 10 Forums.

    Updating now. Hopefully, it’ll fix the Display Drivers crashing on my Surface Book!

      Well the display drivers are separate from this update. Now I know Intel has sopme Beta drivers for the Intel integrated graphics. I downloaded from the Intel site and it did crash once during the last 3 weeks but it alot less then the previous Intel graphics drivers.

    As an update to this update…I installed it on my Lenovo Flex 2 that I’m using for the Windows Insider program builds…and now it can’t boot.

    I ran a System Restore from the Advanced Boot Options.

    So, I figured that this would be a good time to bring up a few of the recovery options for Windows 10:

    Start Windows 10 in Safe Mode
    Create a Windows 10 USB Recovery Drive

    After this update I’ve been experiencing a bug. I dunno if its caused by the update.. A message box showing “mail is not configured” keeps popping up even though its configured. Microsoft should also provide a way to display build number (under this pc->properties) rather than the winver command.

    After installing the cumulative update for version 1511, I noticed after configuration the desktop came back without any icons, and the mouse pointer turned to the hourglass for quite a while. After waiting a couple of minutes, my antivirus icon reappeared, but still no other icons/shortcuts. Finally clicked with the mouse, the screen seemed to gray out, then the desktop icons reappeared and seemed normal. I ran a cleanup & defrag, as per usual after an update/upgrade. Seems to be working normally now.

    I’m actually afraid to update again. After the initial upgrade, I had such a hard time getting my touchpad to scroll properly and getting my function key “unstuck” that I had to roll back to Win7. It took me a frustratingly long time to get those 2 issues resolved after I redid the upgrade. Now, after the first major update, they’re broken AGAIN! Part of me wants to update on the hope that it will fix what’s wrong for me but the other part of me doesn’t dare update and risk making things even worse. And, for the first time, I actually forgot to take a system image before I did the update so I can’t even just revert back to my laptop state prior to the major update. Microsoft is grinding my gears at this point!

    To PDSG, I was able to repair Win 10 malfunctions by doing the install of the Fall Update. (Version 1511, Build 10586.11) BUT, this install was done on an HP Tower PC with an AMD quad 2.5Ghz CPU and 8GB system ram. I have only successfully installed Win10 version 1511 on an Acer Aspire notebook. Even that I doubled the system ram, & increased the power option on the CPU to High power to bring it up to its top speed.

    November Update pushed to my Dell Latitude E6320, which was working perfectly in the initial upgrade from Win 7 Pro. After update, Windows would hang after login credential. I restored back to a previous version…all was wel until update was pushed again.

    MS Windows Answers support spent a total of 5 hours with me. We finally installed Version 1511 from the MS Download site. Windows booted, but now most of the Windows 10 apps will not function and the Windows store is broken.

    According to “Due to a bug in the Windows 10 build 10586 the powershell command used to reinstall the apps and app store instead breaks them and deletes their install folders. Till Microsoft fixes this bug the repair app store is skipped for this version of Windows.”

    Back to MS Windows Answers and lo and behold….my computer is not certified compatible with Windows 10 (???). The November update crashed the apps and app store, and the tool downloaded by MS to fix the issue says that it’s not fixable until MS acts. Anyone else have this problem?

      Update 11/27: Version 1511 Build 10586.14 was pushed through the other day. Still no access to MS Win 10 apps. Rest of my productivity programs have no issues, so I guess that’s what I’ll have to live with for now. released a new update, but still has no utility for recovering App Store and Win 10 Apps. Still no “official” acknowledgement of any issues with Win 10 Apps, despite numerous postings on tech websites of issues similar to my own. The main thread in all of these posting is that Windows 10 was an upgrade from an earlier OS (Win 7 or 8.1). I’ll keep monitoring this site and others for a solution.

    To Jim Peyton, I have had a similar bug which I solved by uninstalling the AVG Antivirus pgm and then re-installing it. So far that’s the only A/V pgm I’ve seen cause that problem. But every A/V pgm has had to be reinstalled after the upgrade!!!

      To Bob Young: Thanks for the reply. I did a FULL uninstall of Webroot’s Secure Anywhere A/V program — despite having it active during initial upgrade to Windows 10 Pro from Win 7 Pro. I installed V 1151.11 again after disabling all third party programs, rebooting, cleaning temp files…the usual thorough pre-install tasks. After installation….still have no App Store and most Windows 10 Apps not running and/or reported “not installed.” I’ve tried several script-based Powershell re-intialization fixes….nada. Even trid and app by app Powershell fix…still nothing.

      This issue occurred after the November Threshold 2 update. All Win 10 Apps and The App Store worked from the time I upgraded until the “November Putsch.” MS Windows Answers tech support doesn’t have an answer except to do a clean install, which will purge all ove my programs and files. As it stands I can live w/o the Win 10 Apps (though I would like to use Photo and a few others) to keep this laptop working until it’s replaced. I just wish MS would take a little ownership for this snafu instead of doing the usual hardware finger-pointing. There is a reason my Latitude was not certified by Dell for Win 10 — it fell below the line of legacy equipment Dell was willing to test. As the machine worked flawlessly with the initial upgrade and now has issues after Threshold 2 deployment, I would argue it’s a MS issue. I could be wrong — it’s been known to happen.

        Not sure what to say about your Dell, unless it was too old to begin with?? I just fixed an Acer Aspire i5 laptop with a “Flashing Screen” by finally doing the Reset. Tried a few other things in Startup, but it’s really hard to work on when the whole desktop screen is flashing off and on once or twice a second! The only thing you can do is go for the Task Manager, then try reboot till you can hold the shift key & do the Restart, to get into the repair options. At least those weren’t flashing!!! The O/S was reset to 10586.0, so I did the updates & installed 10586.14. Still working okay. Had to install some apps to make things a little more workable for the user! Libreoffice, Malwarebytes, Ccleaner, Chrome, Firefox, Ultradefrag, Disk Cleanup, etc…

          To Bob Young: Windows 10 installed perfectly during upgrade only to nbe ‘broken” during the Threshold 2 update. Dell did not certify this Latitude because it fell below the line for testing. Laptop specs tested out just fine during the upgrade compatibility check….Since 95% of Windows 10 works perfectly — just the App Store and select Win 10 apps are broken — I doubt seriously it’s a hardware/driver issue. I could be wrong, it’s been know to happen….rarely :-)

    After installing the update I experienced several problems. My start button would not work, Cortana would not work, the notofication area didn’t work, File explorer just hung and more… Eventually I uninstalled the update and everything worked again. The update was reinstalled and I had the same problems so I uninstalled it again.

    Windows 10 version 1511 (105586.14) was updated automatically. Now I have blinking horizontal lines on my display (HP, driver AMD Radeon HD 7560D). I tried many things including installing the latest display driver. Unfortunately, I can’t restore my OS (system protection was off, to my surprise). Leaving any video running in the background is a workaround. I’m looking for a simple solution to the root problem – so far, I haven’t found one. Any suggestions? (I don’t want to do the safe mode, look for the offending process if I can avoid it). I really don’t want to do a full rebuild.

      @ Mike M… good luck getting any assistance from HP on the AMD issue — they like many mfrs are now insisting that they haven’t certified many machines to work with Win 10. No driver updates available in many cases. The shakeout from Threshold 2 and subsequent updates is that more people who were coaxed into upgrading by passing a cursory “compatibility test” are finding that their computers should NEVER have been upgraded (I hate that term for Win 10), and find little assistance when compatibility issues start degrading system performance to the point of being unusable. The push to upgrade was never backed by cautions about later compatibility. The fact that Win 10 is NEVER stable — updates constantly being thrown at us — means we are ALL beta testers. In past users could rely on Service Packs, which we could accept or refuse. No longer the case. Microsoft has a lot to answer for in pushing the upgrade to any and all machines knowing that many were never going to be supported by the mfrs.

      As far as your question is concerned, I assume you looked at the Device Manager to determine whether the driver was marked as causing a problem. You can try re-installing Win 10 1511 (105586.14) to see if that fixes the problem. Other than that, you could be running diagnostics until you’re old and grey….if you have your original OS disks, consider a roll back to what was working and supported by HP. It stinks, but in the long run rebuilding your computer to a known stable configuration is a lot less hassle than waiting for a magic bullet update from MS. I know…I am doing just that to go back to Win 7 Pro.
