Here's what got fixed in Windows 10 build 17763.107 [Update]

After over a month, Microsoft is re-releasing the Windows 10 October 2018 Update today. When it was originally released, Windows 10 version 1809 was plagued with quality issues, from files being deleted upon upgrading to not getting a dialog to replace files in a ZIP extraction.

Fixes for those issues have been in testing with Insiders for weeks, but those that installed the update in the four days that it was available were left out in the cold. Today is Patch Tuesday though, so the fix is out in the form of KB4464455, which brings the build number to 17763.107.

You can manually download it here, and it contains the following fixes:

  • Addresses an issue that incorrectly implies that user policies have not been applied after configuring a user rights Group Policy setting. Reporting tools, such as RSOP.MSC or Gpresult.exe /h, do not show the user rights policies or display a red “X” instead.

  • Addresses an issue that degrades Internet Explorer performance when you use roaming profiles or you don't use the Microsoft Compatibility List.

  • Addresses additional issues with updated time zone information.

  • Addresses an issue that causes a black screen to appear after turning on the display on some servers.

  • Addresses an issue that causes a long delay in taking a photo using the Camera app in certain lighting conditions.

  • Addresses a performance issue with vSwitch on network interface cards (NIC) that do not support Large Send Offload (LSO) and Checksum Offload (CSO).

  • Addresses an issue that may cause applications to lose IPv4 connectivity when IPv6 is unbound.

  • Addresses an issue that may break connectivity on guest VMs on the server when applications inject the low-resource flag on packets.

There's also a known issue to be aware of:

Symptom

Workaround

After installing this update, some users cannot set Win32 program defaults for certain app and file type combinations using the Open with…command or Settings > Apps > Default apps.

In some cases, Microsoft Notepad or other Win32 programs cannot be set as the default.

In some cases, attempting to set application defaults again will succeed.

Microsoft is working on a resolution and estimates a solution will be available in late November 2018.


As you can see, there should be another cumulative update later on this month.

If you're installing the Windows 10 October 2018 Update today, this update should come with it. If you already had it, you can find this through Windows Update, or grab it manually.

Update: Microsoft has listed a second cumulative update for Windows 10 version 1809 today, which brings the build number to 17763.134.
