Microsoft Releases Cumulative Update KB4016871 for Windows 10 Creators Update

Last month Microsoft released the Creators Update for Windows 10 and although not all users have been offered the updated version of the OS on Windows Update many did manually install it so this month's Patch Tuesday will move their current PC build forward to 15063.296 from 15063.250.

There is also a security update for Adobe Flash Player for Windows 10 Version 1703 (KB4020821) and the standard monthly release of the updated Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool (KB890830).

There are also other updates for Microsoft software on this Patch Tuesday and we will explore those later today to let you know what you should be focused on in this batch of updates.

So, KB4016871 is cumulative security update that is available for PCs (Build 15063.296) and Mobile (15063.297) and addresses the following issues:

-- Addressed issue with Surface Hub devices waking from sleep approximately every four minutes after the first two hours. 

-- Addressed issue where autochk.exe can randomly skip drive checks and not fix corruptions, which may lead to data loss. 

-- Addressed an issue where Microsoft Edge users in networking environments that do not fully support the TCP Fast Open standard may have problems connecting to some websites. Users can re-enable TCP Fast Open in about:flags

-- Addressed issues with Arc Touch mouse Bluetooth connectivity.

-- Security updates to Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Graphics Component, Windows SMB Server, Windows COM, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows kernel, Windows Server, and the .NET Framework.

As with any other cumulative update, there are no new system features in this patch but personally I am glad to see the fix for Arc Touch Mouse Bluetooth as I have seen that on Surface Book since the Creators Update was released last month.


But, wait...there's probably more so be sure to follow me on Twitter and Google+.
